Three episodes to cover seven manga installments starting with #176
Manga artist Ken Akamatsu announced on his blog that limited editions of volumes 23 through 25 of his Negima! Magister Negi Magi manga will each include an OVA episode. The official announcement will be made in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine's next issue, which goes on sale on April 2. The first OVA volume will sell on July 17 and cover the 176th and 177th installments of the magical school comedy manga. The second volume will follow on October 17 and cover installments 178 to 180. The final volume on January 17, 2009 will skip installment 181 and cover installments 182 and 183. The Shaft studio will return from the second television series to animate. Kodansha employed a similar OVA-bundled manga plan for CLAMP's Tsubasa story last year.
