Crunchyroll is starting fresh this morning with the winter 2018 anime season additions. The latest is Maerchen Maedchen, which begins its stint at witchcraft school today, January 11 at 8:00am PST.
Maerchen Maedchen will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: North America, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, South Africa, Netherlands and Latin America.
This is a story about girls (called "Maedchen") who are selected by “Origin”. They attend school of witchcraft located all over the world to wield their magic and become first-rate “Origin Masters”. Their goal is to win at the annual Hexennacht competition, where representatives of each school compete in their abilities to wield their magic. The winner of the competition gets to have one wish magically granted. Due to lack of members, there were concerns that Japan might not be able to attend the annual competition this year. However, things start to change when one day Shizuka Tsuchimikado, the leader of Japan meets Hazuki Kagimura, a high school student who loves reading and daydreaming. For some reason, Hazuki, a loner who doesn’t have many friends is chosen by the Origin “Cinderella” which possesses strong power. She begins her new life at school of witchcraft. The girls practice to wield their magic with “Cinderella” to win the championship while sometimes they enjoy soaking in hot spring baths; their battles are about to start!
