Ultra Maniac

Ultra Maniac (ウルトラマニアック Urutora Maniakku?) is a magical girl manga series, authored by Wataru Yoshizumi, which was later adapted into an anime series, produced by Ashi Productions and Animax.

The series is a romantic comedy featuring seventh-grader Ayu Tateishi, a tennis club member, and her transfer student friend, Nina Sakura, who is actually a trainee witch from the magical kingdom.

The manga was originally serialized between 2002 and 2004 in Shueisha's Ribon manga magazine, spanning 5-tankōbon volumes. It was also later licensed for North American distribution by Viz Media. The series was adapted into a 20-minute anime OVA, released in 2002, and was adapted soon after, into a 26-episode anime television series, which premiered in 2003 across Japan on Animax.
