From ADV Manga:

The prestigious Aoi Academy caters to an elite collection of young magic users. But 17-year-old Kazuki Shikimori is a student who passes muster in name alone. He is the youngest in a long line of sorcerers, but the family's long-running talent for the black arts ended with this average student. That doesn't stop the female population of Aoi Academy from vying for his attention, though! His impeccable DNA will start a teenage war of lovesick girls!

Wasted Potential

For once I think an anime actually far outstrips it's manga counterpart (the only other exception I've come across being Code Geass). This manga is pitiful. It's far too short making no use of a potentially great plot line and the ending was pathetically sappy. Boring and dull the only thing I credit it for is the art work. It wasn't even very ecchi if you're into that and the anime had a better, if not exactly great, plot line. Don't waste your time.

For a two volume manga it isn't horrible. Bu the fact remains that it is a two volume manga leaving much to be desired. You dont get a feel for the characters so you cant relate to them and a potentially complex story is over-simplified.

Good, but unsatisfying

I have seen both the anime and the manga. The manga and the anime is hard to compare. First of all, the manga was too short to even start comparing with the anime. The manga was good, but with just 2 volumes it's not satisfying. It could've used more drama, romance, or conflicts......and more ecchi (definitely). The anime had 24 episodes and the manga only has 2 volumes. I would choose the manga by the looks of the characters, but I would choose the anime by the story plot. The anime had good filters and it had more characters to make the anime curious (I can't fit the right word so sorry if you can't get what i'm saying). The manga was simple and the events were short and going fast. Personally, I wanted the manga to at least have some of the events and characters from the anime and end with just how the manga ended. Happy ending.

this manga is kinda cool although I was confused more than half the time. The drawings are a bit nice though..

In the end, it seemed to me that the story is too basic. Although it is only a few volumes, it still struck me that there was little story in it.

I have no idea what the mangata was thinking with this one. This harem-like manga uses a fantasy setup to describe the environment where the story develops: an academy of magic, but nothing happens here. Just a bunch of girls in their efforts for attention to this loser-type guy. There's no ecchi nor fan service... and the development of the story just sucks. Why would you waste your time reading this manga!

Better than the anime

It is the anime condensed, with a few useless arcs taken out, and a better (But still not "good") ending put in.

A variant of the harem premise, totally normal/useless guy pursued by multiple idol-level girls. Barely escapes being rote. Characters don't ever really achieve being human. Sure, the art was pretty nice, the mangaka only had 2 volumes to work with, and probably the translation I read wasn't the greatest. Still, the artist should try a little harder at making us suspend our disbelief. Or, at least give us a little ecchi!

i enjoyed watching the anime, never knew there was a manga. The manga drawing surpasses that of the anime, its very nice also kazuki shikimori looks better than from the anime, and the girls look better too, kazetsubaki breast dont look so huge. though its a pity its only 2 volumes.. also they aucutally have an ending for the manga, as the anime has a pretty crappy one..
