An actual villain appears, in the form of a resentful girl who has her own issues with magic. Her reaction is a little more understandable when I remember how young she is (middle school), but she's still hard to take in the story. It was nice to see Nina apparently improving her abilities as a witch, though.

Wow : ) I Loved this volume! : ) its really good! : ) and wow, Nina's got some competition for Hiroki, as Sayaka likes him too, but he already asked Nina out, and someone is watching Nina, spying on her too, oh boy! can't wait to read volume 5! : ) love this manga series! : )
Ultra Maniac sits on the border between children's manga and YA - packed with humor, the romance aspect is light and fun. The art is gorgeous and fits well with the lighthearted, cutesy plot.

Volume four expands on Sayaka's story; though she's been dating Yuta for a bit, readers don't know much about her until now: (view spoiler)

Nina changes from happy to sad. She has magic powers and lives on earth because she is kicked out of the magic kingdom. However, she finds out that that she got selected to a advanced magic school and becomes sad and doesn't want to leave her friends. Then she tells her friend "But Nina doesn't want to leave her friends" (156). This shows that she will miss everyone and would have stay in the magic kingdom, until she would graduate a few years later.

This excellent manga series continues in volume four! This volume centers primarily on one of the main characters who has a secret so big, that that character turns on the others! This series may be rated All Ages, but it is a delight to read. It's a story that is hard to be put down. It's a must read manga!

Volume 4 of Ultra Maniac is a fun ride despite a few issues. One is how I'm a bit divided in my reaction to the heart-warming forgiveness the main characters show to Sayaka. The other is how Sayaka claims to be sincerely sorry but acts selfish and not sorry. It bugged me.

The manga volume ended with a fun manga short story that was a "travelogue" of the mangaka, and two of her friends (fellow mangaka, I think) on a vacation trip to Kenya. Fun stuff, though I am saddened when I think of how such k

School on earth is more complicated than Nina thought. Not everyone wants a cute witch prancing about in school, especially Sayaka, a half-witch. Not only that, but Tetsushi's best friend Hiroki knows Ninas's secret: she's a witch!
