Then one day, Naoto gets magically summoned into the very world he had once only seen in dreams!

3. Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

Kyon is an ordinary freshman high school student who, self-admittedly, has given up his fantasies of espers, time travelers, and aliens as he left middle school. However, sitting behind him is the beautiful, intelligent, and eccentric girl Haruhi Suzumiya, who in her class introduction blatantly states her singular desire in meeting aliens, time travelers, sliders, or espers. Interested, Kyon starts trying to make small talk with her before class, eventually leading to normal conversations with Haruhi. One day, after making a comment about Haruhi's displeasure with the available school clubs, he finds himself dragged into membership of the newly formed Spreading Excitement All Over the World with the Haruhi Suzumiya (or SOS) Brigade.
This is the first of two manga adaptations of the light novel series. Both manga adaptations were published in Shōnen Ace, but the earlier one (this one) was canceled after the first volume. The reasons for this stem from the fact that the manga was considerably different from the novel and had little input from the original author.

Zero no Tsukaima's story follows the life of the female protagonist named Louise who attends an academy for those who can use magic as a second year student. In this world, those who can use magic are either a mage or a noble. Everyone else is a commoner and is not treated equally. She is unskilled at the craft, which means she can never use her magic the way she wants to and has been dubbed the name "Louise the Zero", due to her current success rate almost always being zero. Early in the school year, the second year students get to summon their familiars; this is considered a special day where a mage summons their eternal protector and partner, which usually is some sort of creature. Louise manages to summon a human male named Saito Hiraga from Earth, leaving Louise totally humiliated. She treats Saito as any other creature, making him sleep on the floor and eat leftovers, and beats him with a whip, among other things. One day Saito challenges a noble who disrespects commoners to a duel. Saito is beaten badly at first, but once a sword was put in Saito's hands, he gained amazing powers and wields the sword with great ability. Louise and Saito, during the course of the story, face many mysteries and uncover unexpected truths.
