Fantasies and miracles never interested Ayu Tateishi, a popular second-year middle school student. She was content with preserving her image of being cool, calm, and collected—all to catch the eye of her crush, Tetsushi Kaji. Ayu's carefree days are interrupted by the appearance of Nina Sakura, a new transfer student who turns out to be a witch. Nina, who left home after failing an exam at her school in the Magic Kingdom, quickly latches onto Ayu and becomes her best friend.

Unfortunately, Nina's ineptitude with magic and her habit of meddling in Ayu's personal life cause nothing but trouble for the two of them as Ayu toils to maintain her good reputation and Nina struggles to hide her secret from the discerning eye of Hiroki Tsujiai, Tetsushi's best friend and an avid fan of manga. And when Nina's presence attracts more people from the Magic Kingdom, Ayu is dragged into a world she never even dreamed possible.

Ultra Maniac was the first manga I've read, but is mediocre compared to the other manga I've read. I've also watched some of the anime episodes, and was a great anime. I wasn't a noob to the anime industry, though. The character development was great, and my favorite character so far has to be Nina. The art is amazing and wonderful, and it's very enjoyable. I gave this manga a 6/10.

When I watched the anime a long time ago it had been the first romantic comedy I have ever seen. I both laughed and cried during that series and in my opinion that - the ability to make the viewer feel emotion - is what makes a story great. Today, about 4 years after having watched the anime, I finally got myself to sit down and read the manga.

Once again I was impressed by Ultra Maniac. The manga had a lot of similarities to the anime, but it also had a lot of differences too. One of the first things you will probably notice if read more

Ultra Maniac was the second manga I ever read. The things I like about this manga is the character development and the cute storyline and characters. I like how even the secondary characters had attention put on their development and story. While this is a cute manga, it is mostly geared towards the younger audience (which I was when I first started reading it) But now that I have read a lot of different types of manga, I can see that Ultra Maniac is relly not one of the best mangas out there.

These where one of my first manga's so I found it interesting and fun to read. The story is basically about a girl name Ayu Tateishi, who helps out a girl name Nina Sakura. Nina trusts Ayu so much that she tells her that she is a witch from another realm. The story basically reflects off of there, Nina using her powers to help out Ayu at times but sometimes causing her even more trouble.
