"Our Magic is not omnipotent... a little bit of courage is the real magic."

Negima! Magister Negi Magi (also known in Japanese as Mahou Sensei Negima!) is a shonen manga by Ken Akamatsu, creator of Love Hina. The manga originally ran from February 2003 to March 2012 in Weekly Shonen Magazine, for a total of 355 chapters/38 volumes.

Ten-year-old Negi Springfield has just graduated from a magic academy in Wales, and finds that his assignment for earning his full magic license is a job as a teacher — in a private all-girls school in Japan. Worse than that, though, is that it's a junior high class, and almost all of them are smitten with him.

Earning his license by getting through a semester or two of teaching his hyperactive and over-affectionate students is only one of Negi's goals, though. He's also looking for his long-absent father — "Thousand Master" Nagi Springfield. The fact that one of the girls in his class is secretly an old enemy of his father's and still holds a grudge doesn't help, either.

And life doesn't get any easier. Although he's supposed to keep his magic secret, he's having control problems, and blows his cover in front of some of the girls almost immediately. Also, he can't get properly licensed until he finds a partner. note  It soon becomes obvious that, by the sheerest coincidence, almost all of Negi's students are excellent candidates for partnership. And the school itself isn't quite as "normal" as it appears at first glance.

Then a mysterious, white-haired boy by the name of Fate Averruncus, leader of Cosmo Entelecheia, attacks, and the story takes a serious turn from there.

A Sequel Series set in an Alternate Timeline, UQ Holder!, was serialized from 2013 to 2022.

Jack Rakan takes attack-naming very seriously, even when he just pulls the name out of his ass.
