This show has been licensed by Sentai and will be coming to Anime Strike in America and Hidive for the rest of the world that is served by Sentai. That was rather unexpected as Funimation has all the Negima stuff, although that was about a decade ago.

Dang, that's unfortunate. Animestrike is another paywall we gotta get through AFTER paying for Amazon Prime, right? I'm glad more anime are coming to the US, but paying double for that is bonkers.

Not sure it's much of a loss though. I read the first fifteen or so chapters, and it felt pretty meh to be honest. The characters seemed to be very lightweight and lacked any of the charm that Negima had.

I enjoyed Black Clover a lot more, and that's here on Crunchyroll.

Just saw the news about it going to Anime Strike. That sucks so much...
First Sword Oratoria and now this!
Seriously debating between getting Anime Strike now or just waiting for the blu-ray release.

icecreamsnow, I'm pretty sure many of us are aware that UQ Holder isn't on the same level as Negima. However, many of us have wanted to see Ken Akamatsu's work faithfully adapted and UQ Holder is, to many of us, either a close second or hopefully a stepping stone in the right direction. I think many of us are hoping that if UQ Holder does well enough, that we could see a return of the original Mahou Sensei Negima. Understandably, that seems unlikely but we're allowed to hope, aren't we?

Or at least, we were hoping. I don't know how well Anime Strike is doing so I don't know if it'll get enough support there or if it would be better on Crunchyroll. All I know is that I want to support UQ Holder but I'm not sure if I want to support Amazon's $16 per month pay wall. I mean, paying $11 for Prime, a service I'm not really going to take advantage of, just to pay an additional $5 to watch anime doesn't seem fair. They should really separate the two.

Yeah... Double Pay walls to be exact...

And with how Amazon's service is, I find that contacting Luffy is more reliable when episodes are released.

I actually like UQ Holder a bit better than Negima. The story is much more focused with a smaller cast and way smaller harem. It also knows what it wants to be right away, Negima started off as Love Hina with magic, and eventually went full-fledged shounen battle series.

I think by the third major iteration of one of Ken Akamatsu's works you do get a bit tired of his character tropes, so it's easy for me to see how people don't like the characters in UQ holder as much, but hey at least Naru and Motoko 3.0 are pretty decent.
