Just read the 208th. Negis' finally grasp on what Black Magic is! The last shot of chapter's cool! I'm glad it's not a chapter with announcement of Akamatsu-sensei will take a break ^^''
Ah, btw, you guys must have known about "the big announcement" is mentioned in the last page of chapter?
Guess what is it... It's the 3rd anime of Negima! Titled: Mahou Sensei Negima! ~Shiroki Tsubasa~
The details can be seen here: http://www.ailove.net/diaries/diary.cgi
Well, too bad it's just a 3 ep OVA included in the special edition of the volume 24-25 of tankoubon
. What's better is, the OVA will follow the storyline of manga. Yes, it's true that the chapters taken can be considered 'filler'... but, Akamatsu-sensei mentioned, the last ep of ova will included 30 seconds of preview of Mahou Sekai-Hen! So, if the responses for OVA are good, then, we can assume they'll continue or make a real 3rd series.
Ah, yes, making the OVA based on the manga's storyline means: Kotarou will also be animated (stated by Akamatsu-sensei himself). Ku:nell's also got the honor
The studio responsibles for this OVA is SHAFT.
