To Heart 2 adnext
The individual stories of the girls in To Heart 2 continues. This OVA series will focus on Manaka Komaki and Yuki Kusakabe.
Manaka and Takaaki have been good friends for awhile. In fact, he has always been very helpful to her in her duties as a class representative and the library keeper. As we've seen before, it's quite clear that Manaka has feelings for Takaaki, so it's not surprising that her mind wanders and she frequent daydreams about the two of them together. Also, what happens when the definition of Takaaki's relationship to each of the girls by referring to someone by their first name comes into play?
Yuki and Takaaki share a particular memory of when they were little kids. And that memory involves Takaaki telling her that she could take his last name if she wanted. With the two of them grown up now, word of this situation somehow gets to Harumi, which incites some jealousy, with Harumi wanting to constantly challenge Yuki for Takaaki's heart.
Negima Mou Hitotsu no Sekai
Continuing where we last left Negi and the girls, they have all arrived in Wales. Negi informs his sister and his peers about his mission to find his father after getting a lead on his possible whereabouts. However, some old familiar foes will not make this easy for him, as they have returned, and stronger than ever, bent on annihilating them.

Like we saw with Ilfa working in the Kousaka residence, Silfa is currently working in Takaaki's house. However, since her duties involve doing grocery shopping, there's a slight problem as she's a bit shy and nervous being out in public. But when it comes to a special curry recipe that she is looking to make for Takaaki, can she overcame her anxiety to be able to accomplish this task? This won't be easy, especially with Milfa interfering in attempting to claim Takaaki's heart for herself.
