The sprawling, activity-packed three-day Mahora Academy Festival
is under way. Overwhelmed and exhausted by his schedule, Negi
falls asleep and almost loses an entire day. But thanks to
Chao Lingshen's amazing pocket-size invention, Negi suddenly
has time to spare. So Negi goes on a date with Nodoka, patrols
the dangerous areas surrounding the legendary World Tree,
becomes accidentally possessed by strange magic, inspires
a heart-to-heart with usually secretive students, and prepares
to compete in a martial-arts tournament against opponents
who are more formidable than he ever imagined...
10 in the Negima! series features the continuing
adventures of ten-year-old, Negi Springfield. He has just
graduated from a British school for magic only to find himself
assigned to teach English in an all-girl's Japanese high school.
All Negi wants is to become a great wizard - but he's forbidden
to use magic in his new post.

tournaments, and humour by the bucket load.

I know I'll be adding the previous volumes to my shopping
