Shruikon    206

The new manga by Ken Akamatsu of Love Hina and Negima fame, serialized in Weekly Shounen Magazine.

 

Synopsis:

 

In the decade since the world became aware of the existence of magic, the world has undergone massive upheaval. However, a boy named Touta lives in seclusion in a rural town far removed from these changes. His ordinary life is highlighted by his magic-using female teacher and his supportive friends. When his tranquil daily life is disrupted, he embarks on a unique adventure.

 

 

So it's a fantasy battle shounen set in the Negima/Love Hina universe in one of the several timelines that were created in Negima (probably not the main one, as far as we can tell). Fans of Negima will love the references to it but you don't need to have read Negima to enjoy this. Only four chapters in and the fights are already as good as anything but the best fights in Negima and it's shown no signs of the harem antics that some people disliked Negima for.

Well this seems very promising. Here's hoping it doesn't have a terribly rushed ending like Negima did.

Yeah. Negima's ending was a real disappointment. The rest of the manga is easily in my top 5 but that ending...

Still, hopefuly Akamatsu's got his contract woes sorted out now.
