''[[http://www.mahoushounenfight.com/ Mahou Shounen Fight!]]'' is a webcomic that parodies and pays homage to the MagicalGirl genre, written by [=DustyJack=] and [=JadePrince=].

Mike Smith is pretty much done with trying new and exciting things. Being raised by the grown up equivalent of a GranolaGirl he hopes to avoid the weirdness trend set by his mom by going to a new prestigious private school that will look great on his college applications. The first day seems completely fine, except the second day he wakes up and sees the living embodiment of Summer has taken host in his head. Things only get weirder from there.

He finds in his school the other three season spirits inhabiting three other boys, [[TheStoic Yuki]] with Winter, [[TheCasanova Raji]] with Autumn and Oliver with Spring. All of them are a part of the Environmental Awareness club with Joe Lachlan, a combination TeamMom and DrillSergeantNasty elementary school gym teacher and only other person [[InvisibleToNormals who can see the spirits]] as their adviser.
