Fifth volume of adventures set at a magical spell school. Excitement runs high at Mahora Academy as the girls of Class 2-A prepare for their annual school trip. But poor Negi Springfield has more than Kyoto fun on his plate, for one of his students appears to be missing. Sniffing a newsworthy story, the class reporter proves how truly transparent some girls can be... To make matters worse, their planned outing quickly develops into a bizarre hostage situation, and a mind boggling homecoming sets Negi's world spinning. It seems some of the girls have been keeping secrets even bigger than his own. Episodes comprise: 'Words Fly Away, Those Written Remain', 'Unless You Have Believed, You Will Not Understand', 'It Must Not at All Be Despaired', and 'It Is Difficult to Make a Joke With a Sad Mind'.
