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.

Ayu and Nina become friends and they go though some wacky adventures together. Nina basically becomes Ayu "fairy godmother" although Nina's spells do not always go ...

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.

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.

Mixed Feelings
I have to admit, re-reading this series after god knows how long, I felt that ‘Ultra Maniac’ was a bit underwhelming.

On the last page of the final volume of 'Ultra Maniac' contains a bio section of the manga-ka, Wataru Yoshizumi, and also a comment section where Yoshizumi said that once this series started, she became less interested in magic and struggled coming up with ideas for the manga. This seems to explain why the plot is so basic. Everything about this series was pretty basic and straight to the point.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a very cute series that I felt was ...
