New Series UQ Holder! by Ken Akamatsu

In the decade since the world became aware of the existence of magic, the world has undergone massive upheaval. However, a boy named Touta lives in seclusion in a rural town far removed from these changes. His ordinary life is highlighted by his magic-using female teacher and his supportive friends. When his tranquil daily life is disrupted, he embarks on a unique adventure.
UQ Holder! started in issue 39 of Weekly Shonen Magazine by the creator of Love Hina and Negima!, Ken Akamatsu. Akamatsu has mention that this will be his last series before he retires.
First of all, UQ holder takes place almost a century after the events of Negima!
In the first few chapters of UQ Holder! we meet Touta Konoe and we learn of his dreams and ambitions of going to the Capital and fulfilling a promise. We also re-encounter Evangeline A.K. McDowell the British pure blooded vampire, who is known to Touta as Yukihime.
All in all, UQ Holder! is a very good and interesting series that will probably turnout very different from Negima!

The first chapter can be read here
