The first long day of the Mahora Academy Festival is finally coming to a close. Of course, Negi needed to repeat the day four times, courtesy of a bit of magic, to make it through his to-do list. And thanks to Evangeline's enchanted resort, Negi has had enough training and rest. But, will he have the courage to face fellow magic-teacher Takamichi in the premier round? It's time to do what Negi's father did before him - not only survive the 'Budokai' Martial Arts Tournament but win it...

Volume 11 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.

This collection sees the start of the Budokai' Martial Arts Tournament, with each fight being a little more brutal than the last. Negi has his first battle in the tournament against his fellow teacher Takamichi. However, Takamichi is not telling Negi everything and Negi naively asks his fellow teacher to not hold back just because he is a child. The young Negi is in for something of a shock as Takamichi unleashes a powerful attack that looks set to knock Negi out of the tournament in the first round.

If that wasn't enough excitement for the crowd, there's a fighting robot and, as you'd expect, scantily clad girls fighting for their entertainment.

Another winner of a collection. Fans of Japanese manga won't be disappointed.
