THE WORST KEPT SECRET IN THE WORLDTen-year-old magical prodigy and girlsâ€™ school instructor Negi Springfield has a new secret . . . and some of his more stubborn students are determined to uncover it. Few know that Negi has magical powers. (In fact, heâ€™ll be turned into a weasel if he is officially found out). No wonder Negi is so cautious while taking magic lessons from the so-good-at-being-bad Evangeline. As one of the few students who actually knows about his special abilities, Asuna is the one girl to whom Negi decides to tell yet another secretâ€“one involving Negiâ€™s long-lost father who disappeared years ago. But what connection can there possibly be between the Thousand Master and Asuna?
