Ultra Maniac (also known as UruMani or sometimes romanized as Ultramaniac) is the latest manga by YOSHIZUMI Wataru, and started its publication in the magazine Ribon since its February 2002 issue, ending in the January 2004 issue. It was also adapted into an anime TV series during summer 2003.

Continuing with screwball school-comedy, cool student Ayu meets not-so-bright-but-very-cute magician Nina. Yup, you read that right! Poor Ayu's life is changed when Nina and her weird computer with magic downloaded from internet enter the equation!

(Contains spoilers for the first two volumes)
Ayu is one of the coolest students at her school. She is smart, studious, sporty and has just the right ammount of untouchable quality to make her a friend of everybody. Her male counterpart is Kaji-kun: warm, happy, friendly and a memeber of the baseball club. No wonder Ayu's got a crush on him!

One day, Ayu sees a new student, Nina, crying and looking for something. After Ayu helps her find it, Nina decides to show her gratitude in the best way she knows, magic! Nina turns out to be a student from the Magic Kingdom and is currently "studing aboard" in Ayu's school!
Nina + Ayu
After Ayu is convinced about Nina's claims of magic, Nina keeps on trying to help her with her magic... and making a pretty big mess out of it! ^^
Finally Nina decides to settle her aspirations for Ayu's happiness into trying to help her and Kaji-kun become a couple. However she gets more than she bargained for when she discovers Kaji-kun is a very defferent person in private. Nina doesn't know how to tell Ayu, and at the same time... could it be that she is falling for Kaji herself?!
To complicate matters, a childhook friend of Nina, Yuta, appears decided to make some trouble...

YOSHIZUMI Wataru is back at her best with just the right ammount comedy and drama! Fans of "Mintna Bokura" will like this title, and so will all who like a healthy dose of humor and fantasy with their romantic plots.
