Hideo Middle School eighth-grader Ayu Tateishi, as a member of the tennis club, is of course a cool girl who is popular among the girls in the school. Actually, she's an ordinary girl pretending to be cool, because Kaji-kun of the baseball team likes her.

She is adored by the transfer student Nina Sakura. Nina actually has a huge secret?! Because she is a young witch who transferred from the magic kingdom. She's a real witch which a magic computer and a magical treasure box. But this magic always causes big problems!!

Now back to the boys. Of course there's Tetsushi Kaji, the up-and-coming ace of the baseball team, who is very popular among the girls, and his best friend, the calm and quiet member of the tennis club, Hiroki Tsujiai, and many others.

This story is a school love comedy set at Hideo Middle School, starring the cool beauty Ayu, the young witch Nina, the baseball team's Kaji-kun, and the tennis team's Tsujiai-kun. Also, there are original characters that Yoshizumi-sensei designed specifically for the anime, so please look forward to it!

A good show with a lovely ending

The story starts not too quick, but not too slow. Ayu and Nina are good friends who are attending the same school, but Ayu is the only one who knows that Nina is a witch from the Magic Kingdom. However, Nina isn't really good at magic and that's why she came to this world. Of course there's a boy that Ayu likes, Kaji. The show views Ayu's and Nina's daily life around school, magic, love, etcetera. It doesn't sound that original and that's true, but it has good point and that's why this show immediately grabbed me from the read more

Okay this is my first review ok here i go.

Ultra Maniac is a really good anime, its a great rom com anime not like those cheesy romance ones. What makes this anime twice as great is the fact that it involves fantasy, drama and romance which really pulls you into the story. One of the good points of its story is that very often more and more new characters join the story and old characters may reveal secrets about themselves that were previously unkown.That is probably what pulls most watchers more and more into the show. The only thing i didnt like about the anime read more

This is another Magical Girl series that deals with two girls race to get a covited position in their society by going to the human world, but it is refreshing as it really isn't revealed until later that this is what is going on. Also, the ending is a nice twist to the whole plot line that one gets from these race series, it is in fact the ending that makes it unique from them. It is also very comedic.


The art is very acurate and detailed. In this one, the middle schoolers actually look to be the age of middle schoolers, which some Anime's made read more

Anime: Cardcaptor Sakura
They're similar since both of them are about magical girls, comedy, romance and school life. If you liked one is possible that you'll like the other. However, CCS is better than UM

Anime: Sugar Sugar Rune
Both series involve witches from their own magic realm going to the human world, both Aya from Ultramaniac and Chocolat from Sugar Sugar Rune are on some sort of trial to become queen of their realm. Episodes tend to be more episodic with lots of sweet moments, a bit of growing up, and a bit of romance and enough plot or mystery to tie it together and keep up the interest. In the though, I found Sugar Sugar Rune to have a more complex story, better romance, more memorable characters and more inventive witch realm. If you enjoy one of these series, I highly expect  read more

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha
Both animes have magic, and rivalry over something. Mahou shoujo has a lot of action, while Ultra maniac is more relaxing.

Anime: Mamotte! Lollipop
They both start with that ordinary school girl, Then discovers the supernatural world of magic. Both very humorous and out of the ordinary, but completely amazing. A supernatural anime and manga and involves romance, comedy, and fantasy.
