Japanese Pun Inspires "Izetta: The Last Witch" Parody Comic

"Heart-warming" short form comics will be published at irregular intervals on the official Japanese home page

Izetta: The Last Witch, an original alternate history fantasy TV anime known as Shumatsu no Izetta in Japan, is receiving its own short form parody comic thanks to a Japanese pun that confuses the phrases "the end" and "the weekend".



The comic, entitled Izetta of the Weekend, is created by the production team behind Izetta: The Last Witch and will be published at irregular intervals on the official website for the TV anime.



The idea for Izetta of the Weekend was born when the staff noticed that numerous people were erroneously swapping the kanji "終末" ("the end", pronounced "shumatsu") with the kanji "週末" ("the weekend", also pronounced "shumatsu") when referring to the show on social media.


Izetta: The Last Witch is directed by Masaya Fujimori and features animation by Ajia-do Animation Works. The series is currently airing in Japan on Tokyo MX, AT-X, Sun TV, and BS11, and it is also part of Crunchyroll's Fall 2016 simulcast line-up.
