Not really. It first goes into some hokey happy go lucky shit. Then after halfway through, the writers don't know what to do with all 31 girls and literally make them disappear. Meanwhile making it obvious that Chao was behind the whole thing, making her into an evil venomcunt just to foreshadow her badguyness. Then Negi almost disappears and Asuna saves the day by getting into a slapfight with Chao and falling down the stairs a lot.
It's full of fail, really, and I feel stronger for having been able to put up with all of it.
