Seems to me like the mangaka is beating a dead horse. I liked the series but now it is uneventful and boring... Should have ended when Yamada and Shiraishi got together imo.

On volume 11
It gives you the same vibe as Yanki-kun to Megane-chan. Like Yanki-Kun the main protagonist is a male, and everything revolves around him. The female (Shiraishi) potential love, at first, plays a big part and then just sits in the peripheries. This is pretty much, like Yanki-Kun. Is it romance? If it is, it does not do a good job of it. Romance is just a sidenote and it really does not develop it unless you call random kissing of people and blushing a romance development. You can tell he fancies her in the first few chapters and, you think she does but she is so impassive and dispassionate its hard to tell; after you a few chapters Yamada-Kun goes on about his antics with other more pronounced characters with Shiraishi in the background. This pretty much also sums up Yanki-Kun. Even the damn characters between the two mangas are very similar, both in looks and behaviours. The author is just repeating the same formula and like Yanki-Kun, it seems it is heading nowhere. Should have ended at volume 11.

The art is good but you cannot tell the characters apart. All the male faces look too similar, and you can only tell them apart due to hair colour or accessory like a toothpick. Females, at least have huge varying styles of hair. A few females (including Shiraishi) do resemble Lucy Heartfilla which is a plus. Like the show, "I love Lucy".

There are two translations out there. "Mangaholic-MahouX" up to volume 7 and the official CrunchyRoll which is doing the whole series. Personally I found "Mangaholic-MahouX" has a much more fluid and funnier translation. It also has more profanity which just works better and certain instances makes the comedy funnier. The switch from MM to CR is not much of a leap.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The powers are curses that fall randomly onto dejected students. So these powers takes their dejection and amplify them. It is not hard to imagine that these powers have caused several suicides in the past and I do believe that was the ultimate goal of the powers; to cull the student population.

Shiraishi has been a monotone character until the point she just starts crying out of nowhere. That just didn't sit well with her character at all. She was a doll that allowed others to (ab)use her body without a single care.

A bit like Ranma 1/2.

This is a pretty great rom-com. The kissing scenes could have been handled distastefully by a lesser author, but this one is completely up to the task. (One of my highlights: while experimenting on Yamada's power, he's told "keep your lips moist" because he'll have to kiss so much...)

And while the story is harem-based, that part is done well, too. Reminds me of Ranma 1/2, in a good way.

All that said, the story took a weird turn after roughly chapter 66, and the tone shifted quite a bit. It's still good, but it's been dragging quite a bit and I really miss the constant body-switching shenanigans =(.

imo, the series would've left me happy if it ended after
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yamada and Shiraishi got together
b/c honestly, all the chapters afterwards feel dull, episodic. Kind of as if the mangaka doesn't know where the story should go next but wants to drag out the series as long as possible. Sure, there are still unanswered questions left, but I feel that even the mangaka doesn't know the answers yet, seeing how the current chapters seem disorganized and doesn't flow as well as the earlier chapters.

I used to rate this series an 8 and thought this was a pretty good shounen with the ecchi/harem done in good tastes. Now, I can't say the same.

@Draco....well its about witch powers in high school students, and the main characters are still in their 2nd year, so I am thinking that it'll continue until they graduate from the high school and solve the mystery as to how and why those powers came to be.

The series was really, really entertaining and the story and plot were, admittedly, predictable at times, but good. It was certainly fresh in terms of premise.

That being said. I'm not sure why this series isn't over already. I'm not sure what's left? Every new chapter I can't help but think to myself, "Why is there still more?"

I worry that at the time of writing, (ch94) this series might overstay it's welcome a bit. That being said, I'll give whatever its next a shot before I stop reading it. It was definitely good enough to give it that much.

One of the BEST Romantic Comedy I have EVER read!

Great story, great characters, awesome character development, even more awesome inter-character development smile
And funny to boot.
If you think the summary sounds cliche, then you'd be wrong; the content is totally fresh. No tiring tropes. Every chapter gets you hooked and you just. can't. stop. reading!
I feel ashamed to have ignored this one out the first time I knew about it.

It is unlike the typical romcoms around.
Fanservice is kept to a minimum and they're not senseless or 'cheap' (If that's what worries you).
One other thing I appreciate is the unbiased number of males in this manga; usually romcoms have a guy-to-girl ratio of like 1:10 or so, but this manga has more or less equal guys and girls, which is kinda refreshing.

Yoshikawa Miki-sensei is one of my top favourite mangakas right now.

This and The World God Only Knows are two of my top favourite romcoms.
Also, this needs an anime.
(There's already a great promo PV of it on youtube though).

As Jason Thompson from ANN said, "it's a fun, funny, and surprisingly clever magical rom-com".
(As a consequence of reading his ANN article, I just realized Crunchyroll has a new manga service, with Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo as one of its titles. The killer here is that their titles are SIMULTANEOUSLY RELEASED SAME TIME AS JAPAN.
They are 5-6 chapters ahead of what Mahou-x & Mangaholic are offering as of this writing...So I'm extremely tempted to subscribe there now.)

Shounen I like

This is the only shounen I can stand. It is funny and charming, though it has ecchi elements, they are not as constant as in some other shounen, and they have a very normal high school feel. Though it's definitely a harem set-up, all of the characters, including the girls have well developed personalities and act on their on behalf. The one thing it lacks so far is much seriously character growth. Each character has an initial bout of growth when they come into Yamada's circle but so far it stops after that. However, it is still good fun and makes me smile.

Great rom com

This manga delivers everything I look for in a rom com: loads of comedy, slow romance. The art is nice, especially character's expression, which make the comedy funnier, and the romance more convincing. I can literally see how and when Shiraishi and Yamada
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
fall deeper and deeper in love with each other (one of the earliest example was when they kissed for the 2nd/3rd time, Yamada looked completely swept off his feet, in both his male AND female form xD )
. Yamada's way of thinking are so unpredictable, and unique that his words and actions keep throwing me into surprises after surprises. Shiraishi immediately captured me with a healthy mix of tsun- kuu- and dere- moment, plus she can actually think and reason, really well! The support cast is also very interesting and has their moment of brilliance/hilarity. It must be just me, but female shounen mangaka (If you haven't known it, yes, this manga's author is a chick!) have a knack for great characterization.

The powers are all very well thought out, as the characters exploit the magical and personal powers in their arsenal very extensively. And they're not afraid to try weird application of their powers, either. The characters also realise the power of information pretty early, and actively work for it, through experiment, theorizing, and investigation, thus giving a lot of relevance to the "power-less" characters. While they're not at the level of a thriller/detective manga, they're refreshing to read, especially if you're tired of all the "power level" races in shounen manga that would write off "low level" character as irrelevant.

If you're into shoujo, don't be put off by the shounen tag, this manga would fit nicely into both the shounen and shoujo demography

Greatly recommend for all fans of romance, comedy, light fantasy, or all of them!

Addicting, Suspensful, Hilarious, & Satisfying   
Rating: N/A

I love absolutely everything about this manga. The art style is spectacular (emphasis on each character's facial expressions), the plot is fast-paced, nice fanservice (yes, I am female...), and the romance is overall satisfying yet keeps you at the edge. Each character is so unique and likable; no cutboard cutout characters - with some exceptions but Yoshikawa plays it off so well, you don't really give a damn. You can't help but be attached. When I first read this series, I spent a good 16 hours reading all the chapters (about 64 back then) and there was no place I could stop and take a break; this is a page turner. As of now, I'm impatiently waiting for Chapter 73 (but I very, VERY much appreciate the translators) to the point where I'm having dreams about reading the new me crazy, but this series is so addicting and suspenseful that it gave me a new appreciation to Romantic Comedy (with a touch of fanservice) manga.

Overall, I'm proud to say that I'm stuck on this series.
