  • I liked it way more than this review will let on
    It's been a while since I watched an anime not having read a review or article about. It has a bevy of diverse characters and an interesting story. The world they live in is well thoughout, the action is spectacular and the art is gorgeous. Despite a near all female cast, the show is chaste and modest. I even liked the fact that Honoka Takamiya needs to be rescued by Ayaka Kagari. so what's ...

  • Not what you'd expect
    I kind of went into Witch Craft Works not knowing what I got but what I got was very good; I really like how it does these little mini cuts to other characters doing random stuff and some kind of gag ensues. Really the only complaint I can lodge against it is I wish the Witch Team with a Llama would have more screetime, for obvious reasons

  • Another great Anime, but c'mon the ending please...
    I absolutely love this particular Anime. While I do believe a second season is needed, the ending however I found sorely lacking. The fact the there was an obvious and evident buildup to Kagari and Takamiya kissing on the lips, was never actualized. The end scene would have been significantly more emotionally impactful if the kiss had actually occurred.

  • Nice if you like strong women and role reversal
    Kind of typical action-adventure according to other stuff I've seen, with the exception of the fact that the main character is constantly playing the role of the damsel in distress. If having the strong, collected magical girlfriend take the lead in the relationship is your thing, you'll enjoy this.

  • Interesting Series! Worth a Try!
    This series was not what I expected it to be from the summary that I read. Still not exactly sure what to make of this series but, in the end, I did enjoy watching it. It had many strong points, primarily the plot and the characters. As an added bonus, the magic in this series was serious and yet, at times, it seemed to be kind of comedic.

    Plot - 7/10
    The plot to this series was interesting. ...

    Exceeds the sum of its parts
    WCW is an awesome freaking anime. Why?
    1. New take on the magical girl type show. No drawn out fight with sparkldy magic bolts. Our heroine just blows the 'ell out of the bad guys.
    2. An interesting lot of characters. Clever character design not dependent on loli-goth-prototype. I like the vast spectrum of witch types and abilities.
    3. Humor. Often very subtle, sometimes over the top.
    4. ...

  • not at all what i expected
    I expected a slightly ecchi comedy with a few fight scenes here or there, but I was completely wrong. what i found was an entertaining action-comedy with a great story, and next to no sexualization.

    story-9/10; felt twice as long as it actually was (in the good sense), great pacing
    characters-8/10; few of the characters, if any, were not very 2D, and most were cookie-cutter, but i still found ...

  • I really like the credits song
    The ending theme "Witch Activity" is too catchy, to the point that I attribute my whole reason for completing the show to it. Story-wise the anime is good enough. I don't think I can point to anything I took great objections to.

  • I would like to see more backstory
    Love it hope to see more soon.! It is not really a Harem story at least not yet. I would have liked to see the season longer with more backstory. just keep the humour and keep the ending song.The reversal of roles but keeps respect is cool. i give it a A+ and hope for more???????
