Episode 3: When Asuna is describing the game she had purchased (4:14) she mentions that the player can become the Master of Zombies, take over the castle, and get 108 henchmen. This is a parody of the Suikoden series where you construct a stronghold and collect the 108 Stars of Destiny.
In beginning of episode 7, when Asuna yells, a logo for the girls' dorm appears. This logo has striking resemblance to the Love Hina logo. Coincidentally, Love Hina also features an all girls' dorm. Both Negima and Love Hina were made by Ken Akamatsu.

Though it looks different after that, with the hands in a different position.
In episode 5, starting at 11:50 and ending at 11:54, there is a small scene where Chisame Hasegawa (as Chiu) wears a white outfit to the flashes of cameras. This is a direct imitation of the opening animation from Rec.
In episode 5, "Doryoku, mirai, A Beautiful Star" (Effort, future, a beautiful star) is repeated throughout the episode. This is actually part of the lyrics to popular J-pop group Morning Musume's 16th single, "Souda! We're ALIVE."

In episode 9 at 06:33, when Negi was discussing about Star Crystal with Takamichi, there's a warning sign board of Kuma or Pedobear. The bushes of the woods where Negi and his students were camping are the perfect places for Kuma ambushes.
In episode 9, the class rep is ranting about the Negi figure machine and gets one out at random. When she opens the prize ball to see what she got, the sound the ball makes when it opens is the same sound that a Pokéball makes when it opens on the kids anime, Pokémon.
