A good show with a lovely ending

Story
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

STORY

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.

ART

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

Recommendations

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

Both animes have magic, and rivalry over something. Mahou shoujo has a lot of action, while Ultra maniac is more relaxing.
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.
Well this anime isn't similar in the idol aspect, but the characters and romance reminds me of Kirarin Revolution in a way. definitely worth watching if you liked kirarin revolution ^^
UM and MC both have magical girls with partners to help aim for their goal.
Both have a common theme of friendship, school, magic and boys.
