In a world where sorcery reigns supreme, bumbling witch-in-training Louise Francoise le Blanc de La Valliere is known by her classmates at the Tristain Academy of Magic as "Louise the Zero." During an important coming-of-age ritual, when each student must summon a lifelong familiar, Louise proves herself klutz when she mistakenly conjures a teenage boy from Earth. Now, whether they like it or not, Louise and her unwilling servant, Saitou, are bound to each other by the laws of magic for all eternity!

Overall, Zero no Tsukaima was quite disappointing. I had first found it when I was reading another manga called Mahou Sensei Negima, which is a similar genre, and that I enjoyed quite a bit. I even re-read it several times. I don't really care for the ecchi and harem, and I generally skip parts in manga that contains those, but I wanted a manga that had some good action scenes and some comedy that can be appreciated well. Romance is not my main concern, and I do not care for romance stories very much, but if it is done well, then the romance can make ...
