Ultra Maniac

If you're looking for anime similar to Ultra Maniac, you might like these titles.

Maburaho

Maburaho

Kazuki Shikimori is a 17-year old junior studying at Aoi Academy, an elite school for the magically gifted. However, unlike enrollment to the school would suggest, his magical prowess is below-average. In fact, he can only use magic eight times in his life, or he will die. But not all is lost: Kazuki's family tree includes the latent genetic material for magical greatness. After that information leaks out, Kazuki suddenly becomes the most popular male student in the school, and girls from powerful magician families begin chasing him to get his genes.

Both of these are love stories involving magic. In Ultra Maniac, one person (the main character) has the ability to use magic. It's a cute love story, definitely geared more for a female audience, but I still found it pretty entertaining as a guy. Maburaho is a huge contrast to Ultra Maniac, where pretty much everyone in the anime can use magic (except for the main character, who's kind of a failure with his ability... but he can still use magic a VERY limited amount of times). Maburaho is without a doubt geared for a male audience - one man, multiple women. If you're a guy and you watched Ultra Maniac and didn't like it but want a love story with magic, check out Maburaho. If you're a girl and watched Maburaho and thought it was a perverted anime for guys, you'll be much happier with Ultra Maniac. Personally, I enjoyed both... bow to me, the anime hermaphrodite.

These are both really like each other, they are both with magic and they are both Romance Anime. I think that they are both very funny too. These two are really Good Anime series!

Ultra Maniac and Maburaho are romantic comedies that revolve around magical upbringings and interesting characters.

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?

Both anime are about magic girls and their trouble to do magic without being known by non-magic people. Both imply relationship troubles, friendship and love, and both are really cute in the meaning there's no pain, no blood hardly a few tears (Basically, they're shoj├┤!). But if CCS is better done on the relationships (CLAMP work), Ultra Maniac has a lot of funny moments, and is shorter in episodes number.

Both series revolve around a magical girl who needs to do something under a pressure of time. They both have strong elements of magic, friendship, adventure and a little bit of romance.

both series are about witches sent to the human world to compete against each other. the story is so alike, both chocolate and nina are big goof ups when it come to spells, usually making things worse. enjoyed one? definitely enjoy the other.

Lemondropity Lemondropity says...

Not only do both shows feature witches in a competition against each other to become part of the Royalty, but both come down to Earth and involve the humans there. If you like one, please watch the other - you won't regret it.

The Familiar of Zero

The Familiar of Zero

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

Both of these series is involve in using magic. There is a lot of action in every episode in both anime. There is romance too so if you like one you'd like the other one.

They both have friendship, romance, a little magic and comedy! Both really great. I do like Ultra Maniac better then Zero no Tsukaima though.

Maria Watches Over Us

Maria Watches Over Us

For the young women at the Lillian private school for girls, nothing is more prestigious than Rosa Sinensis, Rosa Gigantea, and Rosa Foetida, the beautiful and talented women who head the student council. When a young girl named Yumi's path is intertwined with Sachiko, a successor to the council, things will never be the same for the both of them. Maria-sama ga Miteru is a quiet tale of forbidden romance, friendship, and the everyday life of a school girl.

I make this recommendation because in bought series there is a strong relationship between bought girls/female main characters. Is it me or do bought main characters of Maria-sama ga Miteru and Ultra Maniac TV really look alike. Just so you know Ultra Maniac TV has magic in the mix, which is totaly absent in Maria-sama ga Miteru and in turn Maria-sama ga Miteru has elegance in the mix, which is totally absent in Ultra Maniac TV. But in bought shows the relationship between the main characters plays an important role.

Ultra Maniac and Mahou Sensei Negima! are quite similar in both plot and tone. They both feature a magician (Nina & Negi) who must try to blend in to normal school life, without letting anyone discover their power. Both series strike me as very light-hearted comedies, although there are, of course, some magical battles along the way. Ultra Maniac's Maya is also somewhat mirrored in Negima's Evangeline, so both series also have the 'enemy' magic user who isn't really evil... just misguided. There are friends who discover the magician's secret and suddenly find themselves in the midst of a strange new world, as well as lots of instances where magic is used with the intent to help, but of course something always goes wrong... with extremely comedic results. In Negima, the magician is a 10-year old male teacher in an all-girl's school, so the series naturally has some harem aspects and is a bit more ecchi than Ultra Maniac, but nothing extreme. Overall, the two series are really very similar, so if you liked the lighthearted magic tale and want more of the same, check out Mahou Sensei Negima.

Green Green

Green Green

Deep in the mountains, isolated from civilization, there is a boys-only school that will finally be receiving its first class of girls in an attempt to transform the school into a co-ed one. Most of the boys have never been in contact with girls of their own age, leading to an explosion of hormonal craziness. From the sickeningly perverted fetishist guys, to a rather odd girl that seems to be chasing the most normal guy in the school for reasons known only to her, there's twisted humor to be had.

Both Green Green and Ultra Maniac share the same kind of "feel". Both girls are head-over-heels for their guy and the guys are clueless at the beginning but slowly open up to them. Chances are that if you liked the romance element in one, you'd enjoy it in the other.

Negima!?

Negima!?

Much to his dismay his secret is discovered on the first day by one of his students, Asuna. To prevent Negi from being punished, Asuna agrees to become his partner -- however she isn't the only one to find out. As time goes by more of his students find out his secret. How long can he keep his powers hidden when little by little all of his students are becoming his partners?

Both Ultra Maniac and Negima are romance comedies about main characters with magical abilities who are trying to keep them a secret. Eventually in both, people begin to find out and through that they make new friends (and enemies!).

Pretear and Ultra Maniac are two magical girl series that have their fair use of sparkles and the henshin factor. There's not a lot of similarities between the two, but I just have an inkling that you'd like one if you liked the other based on the mood portrayed, and the character interaction.
