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!
A Kiss is Not Just a Kiss!
When ten-year-old prodigy Negi Springfield graduated from university with a degree in magic, he never imagined he would soon be teaching English to a bevy of gorgeous high school girls. Now Negi's old friend Chamo, a lecherous weasel from Wales, and student Asakura have arranged a competition among the girls to see which of the lovely students will be the first to kiss the teacher! Sure, a kiss will strengthen Negi's magical abilities, but doesn't this contest just support Chamo's voyeuristic proclivities? On the other hand, Negi needs all the help he can get when the magical creatures of western Japan strike back!
