For fans of magic schools like Negima and zany romances like Toradora! comes Zero’s Familiar, a comedic fantasy about a headstrong witch girl and her quarrelsome relationship with a cranky teenage boy.
Zero’s Familiar orginated as a light novel series in Japan and was then adapted into a hit anime. The box set of the anime is available in North America from FUNimation. The popular Zero’s Familiar franchise has also spawned three video game spin-offs and two manga spin-off series.
This omnibus edition contains the first three volumes of the Zero’s Familiar manga series. Seven Seas is pleased to publish Zero’s Familiar for the first time in North America, and will release the rest of the series in two more omnibus editions.
In a world where sorcery reigns supreme, bumbling witch-in-training Louise Francoise le Blanc is known by her classmates at the Tristain Academy of Magic as "Louise the Zero". During an important coming-of-age ritual, when each student must summon a lifelong familiar, Louise proves herself inept when she mistakenly conjures a teenage boy from earth. Now, whether she likes it or not, Louise "the Zero" and Saito, the ever-whining earth boy from Japan, are bound by the laws of magic as master and servant forever!
