Do you believe in magic? Well, I hope you do, because the cast for the Flying Witch TV anime has reunited for a 27 minute audio drama CD that will be included as a pack-in bonus for the special edition Japanese release of Volume 08 of the Flying Witch manga. The audio drama CD features a screenplay by Deko Akao, and the voice cast includes:

The story of the audio drama follows Chinatsu Kuramoto, who is anxious to celebrate her "First Magic Day Anniversary" as part of her training to become a witch. In her haste to master magic quickly, Chinatsu opens an enchanted chest and unleashes what was kept within, resulting in her "First Magic Day Anniversary" being unexpectedly lively.
The original Flying Witch manga by Chihiro Ichizuka is serialized in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine, and an English language version is also available from Vertical, Inc.. The Flying Witch TV anime is directed by Katsushi Sakurabi and features animation production by J.C. Staff. Crunchyroll describes the story of Flying Witch as follows:
Aomori, Japan In a land blessed by nature’s bountiful beauty, bizarre things begin to take place. Makoto Kowata, 15 years old, is a professional witch. She left Yokohama with Chito, her black cat, to live in the house of her relatives in Aomori. This is where she begins to train as a witch. Even though Makoto’s powers are still limited to just flying through the sky, she and her second cousins Kei and Chinatsu surely make the most out of each and every day.
Volume 08 of the Flying Witch manga will be released in Japan on August 09, 2019. The special edition release including the audio drama CD retails for 1944 yen ($17.99 US).
