The Magical Sempai (手品先輩 Tejina Senpai) manga is written and drawn by the mangaka Azu. It premiered in February 2016, and is serialized in Kodansha's seinen magazine, Weekly Young Magazine. The manga is also published across six collected volumes as of September 6, 2019. A licensed English translation of the manga is published digitally by Kodansha USA's Kodansha Comics imprint.

The manga follows a third-year high school student, Sempai, and her junior, Assistant, and their magic club. While Sempai is a talented magician, her severe stage fright repeatedly lands her and her assistant into risque situations. As the series goes on, other characters join in on the antics, like Sempai's older sister, Madara-san, Saki-chan, and Ma-kun.

Trivia Edit

Manga fan translation vs official

A comparison of the unlicensed translation (left) and licensed translation (right) of chapter 5 part 3

  • In addition to the officially-licensed English translation, an unlicensed English translation made by fans was also released. The fan-made translation covers the manga up to chapter 58. Some dialog in the unofficial translation differs considerably from the official translation, causing some jokes to not work as intended. However, the licensed release also uses somewhat more liberal translations in certain parts, likely in order to better get the vulgar humor across.
