Product Description

Product Description

But being a witch-in-training isn't as easy (or fun) as it seems. In fact, it's sort of a pain in the neck. There are secrets to keep, all kinds of tricky magical stuff to remember and never-ending catastrophes to sidestep. Nina may be sweet, but she's got a lot to learn. Thank goodness one of her schoolteachers is an émigré from the Magic Kingdom. Two witches are better than one, right? Well...maybe not.

HASH(0xa2009b10) out of 5 stars MAGIC GIRL SECRET REVEALED! Dec 20 2005
By Sesho - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well, it looks like all the love-love relationships are working out for everyone in Volume 3 of Ultramaniac. Ayu and Tetsushi have confessed to each other, and accepted the fact that their public images are sometimes worlds apart from their private lives. But that's ok! Yuta has given up on Nina and has been asked out by the school "Ice Queen". Even Nina is starting to get a little attention, but for all the wrong reasons. Hiroki accidentally sees her using her magic and her secret might be out if he chooses to reveal to the world that she's a witch. Nina also begins receiving some mysterious hate mail telling her to go back to the Magic Kingdom.

I really enjoyed this third volume of a series that gets better with each installment. It's better than the anime, which I thought was a little overwrought and dumbed down. The art is beautiful and clean and the characters are appealing to the eye and the heart. There's no back-flip magic girl costume change sequences in this book and it's the better for it. While magic is involved, it is set in a very realistic setting. I really liked the characters, especially Nina, who tries really hard but always seems to goof things up. But I believe in her, and so should you!

Also, if you ARE a fan of the anime version, there's a couple of pages of character designs for the anime by Wataru, some of which were never used.
HASH(0xa1efc8f0) out of 5 stars The Third Installment in This Fun School Romantic Comedy/Slice of Life Series with Magical/Fantasy Elements March 7 2015
By MereChristian - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Volume three of <i>Ultra Maniac</i> was actually pretty fun. The original arc of Ayu and her crush Tetsushi getting together is done and the narrative focuses now on their going steady while also focusing on Nina and Yuto (Nina's childhood friend from the Magic Kingdom) moving towards young love as well. The friendship of all of these characters is a very important part of the story in this volume.

Since this is such a short series at only five volumes, it is to be expected that the stories will either drag a bit over the entire course of the manga, or else be shorter and move along to different plots. The mangaka, Wataru Yoshizumi, chose to have a succession of plots.

The new one is the aforementioned relationship dynamics of Nina, Yuto, (also Hiroki, Tetsushi's friend), but also a new plot. Someone is sending mean letters to Nina, telling her to leave. I know from spoilers who it is, but even before the letters showed up, I knew someone was going to be hostile, which caused me to look online and find the mentioned spoilers. Wataru doesn't leave it to the imagination, and gives obvious visual clues. That is fine for this type of story. It isn't some actual "magical girl" series, but a school romantic comedy/slice of life series, with some magical/fantasy elements involved for fun.

There isn't much I didn't like. I admit that the somewhat mundane plot and some of the character designs might not be everyone's cup of tea, but for me it was fun. Interestingly enough, the character designs were admitted by the authoress herself to be unrealistic for the age group of the protagonists, and she did kinda show the girls magically looking like adults and had them look different. Kinda a nice bit of a way to show that they are teen girls. It is helped that in Japan, most seventh graders are thirteen on average, so someone being fourteen before they end that grade isn't unheard of. So while the designs are a bit older looking, they are not as bad as some in the US might take it where seventh graders are an average of 1 to 2 years younger at the time.

The above extended commentary isn't important per se, just something I thought was neat. :D I like little factoids like that.

Anyways, I do encourage others to try out this series and look forward to the last two volumes at some future date (I like to vary up my manga reading a lot).

HASH(0xa1fe0a68) out of 5 stars A Magical Series April 25 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ultra Maniac is a great series for teens interested in manga (Japanese comic books). Wataru Yoshizumi has an enjoyable style of drawing and writing.

This book tells an intriguing (and funny) story about bumbling witch Nina Sakura (who is studying abroad from the magic kingdom)befriending Ayu Tateishi and all the wacky adventures Nina drags Ayu into.

Ayu likes Tetsushi Kaji, the star pitcher for the baseball team. So she tries to stay "cool and calm"- even when she's not around him- because that is what he once told her that he liked about her.

When Ayu meets Nina, though, Ayu's reputation is threatened. Nina's a bubbly... and kind of crazy... teen witch. Of course, that's Ayu and Nina's secret. But Ayu wants nothing to do wiht this "maniac". Eventually, though, Ayu starts to appreciate Nina's wackiness.

In book three the real drama begins when two boys like Nina, Ayu goes on her first date, Nina goes to a night club with a teacher... and Nina recieves a threatening letter telling her to "Go Back to the Magic Kingdom!"
