Most boys dream of the most beautiful girl in school falling for them. Luckily, our protagonist hit the jackpot; fantastic, right? Well, yes and no. She also refers to you as her “princess,” and is a witch!


The story centers on high school student Honoka Takamiya, an ordinary boy with no noticeable traits. As is the case with Shōnen harem, the male main character is oblivious,. He has little understanding of the opposite gender. Honoka is no exception. Enter high school beauty Ayaka Kagari, daughter of the school chairwoman, who is an extremely stoic girl. Despite this, she has a legion of fan girls that stalk her, because of her good looks and features. Any interaction that Honoka has with her, justifies a quick beating in the eyes of her fan club. One day a falling part of the school is about to land right smack into Honoka, which would have resulted in an untimely death, but Ayaka rescues him in the nick of time. Much to Honoka’s surprise, she is dressed as a witch, and as they fly across the sky on her broom, she reveals to him that it is her mission to protect him from harm.


There are two factions of witches: Workshop Witches and Tower Witches. The Workshop Witches protect the world from witches that would use their powers for selfish reasons. The Tower Witches use their magic for evil or selfish means. They have taken an interest on Honoka’s “white stuff.” Without going into spoiler territory, Ayaka must defend her “princess” from would be captors and teach him the ways of a witch.


The opening theme song “divine intervention” performed by fhána is mostly forgettable, it seemed as if they had no idea on a direction to take. The ending theme “Witch☆Activity” by KMM gang that included tower witches Tanpopo, Kanna, Rin, Kotetsu, and mei, is a significant improvement. The theme is catchy; I never imagined “chibi” witches could be so cute, watching them tortured in various ways!

Overall, I was entertained with “Witch Craft Works,” it had the right mix of action and story that will satisfy most viewers. The story elements are clearly explained, plus the CG fire magic is terrific, the best I’ve seen in anime! I would inform anyone looking for a solid Shōnen adventure that “Witch Craft Works” is perfect for you!

I found the series amazing at first, the concept is great, the introduction to characters are wonderful, the fights are brilliantly done, and the female protagonist is one of the best I have ever seen!
But on the other hand, the ending seemed a bit weak to me, and one of the main characters did not develop the way I hoped that they would (no spoilers), as well as I hoped that some of the supporting characters got more development - despite the show's length. A certain group seemed a lot like the Team Rocket of the show in some parts.

I agree with you on the remarks on the op and ed, the ed is so infectious I couldn't wait to hear it again in the next episode!
I also would recommend it to people that shonen fun and action.
Great Review man!
