Adaptation based on laid-back fantasy light novel series features animation production by C2C
Tourism is enchanting in a new key visual (above) for Majo no Tabitabi (known in English as "The Journey of Elaina"), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of laid-back fantasy light novels written by Jougi Shiraishi and illustrated by Azure about a young witch who travels the world and encounters strange people and interesting locales.
The original Majo no Tabitabi light novels are published in Japan by SB Creative under their GA Novel imprint, and an English language version of the series is also available from Yen Press under the title Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina. Yen Press describes the story of the series as follows:
It's not about the destination...
What's your favorite story? Does it have a hero who slays a dragon and saves a princess? Or a child of prophecy destined for greatness? Well, my favorite story is a little different. It's the tale of a witch who travels the world, seeking nothing in particular. With no quest of her own, she's free to wander wherever the wind takes her, adding a few pages to the story of whomever she meets before setting off on her next adventure. At the end of her travels, the witch takes on an apprentice who will one day begin her own journey. And so the cycle continues, or so the story goes. Now, the witch who starts the story anew...who could she be?
The Majo no Tabitabi TV anime is directed by Toshiyuki Kubooka and features animation production by C2C. The release date for the series has not yet been revealed.
