Vampires, Robots, Sorcery… And that’s all before Gym Class! Wizard-in-training Negi Springfield is only 10 years old, but he also happens to be the newest English teacher at the all-girl Mahora Academy. Too bad a bachelor’s degree and an enchanted staff can’t prepare a lad for the chaos of being surrounded by dozens of Junior High girls!
If he can lead the class successfully, Negi will fulfill the final requirement in his quest to become a Magister Magorum… but if he messes it up and the students find out about his special powers, he is doomed to be transformed into a furry ermine!
