Awesome Manga Series

Every time I read this series I like it more than the last time. This is one of if not the best manga series for comedy, magic, action, romance (including lots of fan service) and school all combined into one great series. Every single one of Negi's 31 students are explored and fully developed in this series (not in the first omnibus), and they make a loveable and interesting set of characters. Of course being a harem manga you can be sure many will fall in love or at least h

Must Read Manga - School Harem/Comedy/Magic

If you enjoy magic, comedy and harem in a manga this series is worth reading at least a few times. Most books I enjoy best the first reading, but with this series each time you read it you get more out of it and enjoy it even more than the last time. Of course even the first time it is a great read. Despite the many characters they are all very well developed in this series. This is one of the best manga series ever.

Genius! I heard good review about this manga and decided to give it a try.

It has a perfect mix of comedy, drama, action, and some good fanservice!

Loved this fun series. Reading 1-3 in a row giving you a great start into the variety of characters. This is rated 16+. I agree that it's more mature than others with similar plot lines.

This manga is one of my favourites. The artwork is really well done and the story interesting. Negi is a really interesting lead character and his harem/class is full of some wonderful girls. Even though there are about 30 girls, they are all fully developed and each has an interesting personality too.

A.J. liked "all of it" and recommends it to "anyone."

If Harry Potter knew enough Japanese to teach at an all-girls school, and had a magic allergy which allowed his sneezes to blow the clothes off people, this is what it would look like.

The characters are engaging and sympathetic, though, with 31 students in his class, not all have time to become major characters

Warning; there is a lot of 'fan-service' in this one.

Entertaining, but not my favorite.

Four stars for this book. Five stars for the series
This is a series that starts off good but gets better the further in you get. There are so many characters that you could never actually get to know them all in the first few volumes but by the end of the series you know and like the whole class. It doesn't hurt that they are all cute girls!
