From Viz:
At first glance, Nina Sakura seems like a typical teenage girl. However, she's actually a transfer student from a witch school! Now enrolled in a Japanese middle school, Nina is hoping to improve her grades, make some friends, and practice love spells on her unsuspecting new classmates.

Shy Ayu Tateishi has just made a new friend at school. But this new friend, much to her surprise, is no ordinary classmate. Nina Sakura may look like a normal middle school girl, but she's got a big secret.
She's a witch.
Or, rather, she's studying to be a witch. And apparently, she's not doing her homework. Her spells are devastating in their ineffectiveness and often result in the most embarrassing situations for poor Ayu.
But things wouldn't be so bad if Nina's sorcery didn't make Ayu look silly in front of the one boy she secretly adores. All she wants is a simple love potion. What she gets, however, is a new best friend who almost flunked out of witch school!

i really like this series alot! the manga,in my point of view, was better than the anime. the anime focuses more on the friendship between mayu and nina but the book focus on the friendship and love lives of both girls! lol

I was surprised at how good this manga was! I loved Nina and how despite the fact that she wasn't a good witch, she still tried her best to help those around her. Characters like her are such a breath of fresh air! I also liked all the little quirks the author added to the characters, like Hiroki and Nina being big fans of Doraemon XD This is a very bright and happy manga and I would recommend it to any shoujo or romance fan. The only downside I could find with this manga were the main characters Ayu and Kaji. It was dissapointing that those two had personalities as dull as a brick. I think their story "arc" was the weakest part of the story.

It's quite a cute series, but it is cliched and easily blends in with other shoujo. It's funny, yes, but it lacks any depth and relies on too many shoujo cliches and the same old plotline to be considered great.

Nina's antics were very entertaining, I love how the flow of some chapters went, but a few of them left me going "huh?!"
A must-read!

Not the best... I've read better. But, it's cute. Definitely a Wataru classic. But I kinda prefer PxP more. Hmm... reccommended though. Definitely a nice, light read. A bit childish... as in Carcaptor Sakura childish. Not usually what I read. I like to revisit the genres I once read a long time ago though. It feels kinda nostalgic. Anyways, you should read it (if you're a shoujo fan or a shoujo tolerant person). I wouldn't really reccomend it if you're not. Ultra Maniac is kinda typical, but not bad either way. It does'nt drag on forever and ever and ever *cough*Inuyasha*cough*. So to summarize everything I just wrote into one sentence:

I think am becoming a little slow from reading too many mangas...i had watched the anime for this one a long time ago but totally forgot about the manga or did not noticed. This is such a great read, i like when the heroines or main female leads are strong and there are a lot of comedies. The drama does not drag out and most importantly the romance builds in quire the interesting way. I really just love sensei's work i want to read moe, especially the art is just great.
