Read full description of the books:This was a good series marred by two things for me: 1) Too large a cast without a lot of character development and 2) an ending that was fragmented and rather dull.
The story telling was solid since Wataru Yoshizumi was a seasoned mangaka by this point. And the situations were often funny. Also, the art was adorable. Nina Sakura was a cute character. I just felt the story felt thin compared to Marmalade Boy. This, I believe, was due to the simplistic conflicts. It was a story about a inept magical girl who found new ways each week to mess up her best friend's life. The similarity to Doraemon was even pointed out by the characters. Unlike Marmalade Boy, this was a short story that wrapped up in five volumes as opposed to Marmalade Boy's eight. I don't feel the story was long enough to balance three couples and a coming of age story arc with a bevy of side characters. Often mangaka will introduce new characters to spike reader interest, but the readers often lose interest when the main characters just aren't that interesting. I feel this was the case with Ultra Maniac.
As for the ending, it felt anti-climactic until the epilogue where things were tied up nicely. Perhaps introducing yet another character was too much to throw in the mix. Each new character took time away from Nina's story and her story was thin to begin with. The truth about Nina's academic capabilities was sprung on us without enough foreshadowing and felt more like a gimmick for ratings than an organic part of the story.
Still, I didn't mind reading the story. Consider Ultra Maniac more of a guilty pleasure.
