Manga goes mainstream! The creator of LOVE HINA, Ken Akamatsu, is back with the next installment in his new creation, NEGIMA!
From Ken Akamatsu, the creator of the hugely popular series Love Hina, comes his new series, Negima, which follows the adventures of ten-year-old Negi Springfield. He has just graduated from a British school for magic only to find himself assigned to teach English in an all-girl's Japanese high school! All Negi wants is to become a great wizard - but he's forbidden to use magic in his new post. Still, he can't help himself when his powers can solve somebody else's problem. Of course, sometimes his magic only makes things worse...
Full of the sly humour that made Love Hina such a huge success, Negima is manga at is funniest!
Ten-year-old teacher/magician Negi Springfield is looking forward to taking his class of beautiful girls to the historic cities of Kyoto and Nara – but there's a catch! Negi's student, Konoka, is a kidnap target of feuding magicians in those very cities. Her grandfather, the school principal, orders Negi to protect Konoka – while keeping the fact that she's in danger a secret from the unsuspecting girl. To add to Negi's headaches, his sword-wielding student, Setsuna, may be a spy for the kidnappers. With so much on his mind, how is a young magician to see the sights, care for a sarcastic stoat, and stay in the good graces of his hot-tempered magical partner Asuna?
