  • Comically brilliant, delightfully stupid
    This anime. Oh my god, this anime. I don't even know where to start.

    This one came out of nowhere for me, like an uncercut sucker-punch. I was looking for something to watch to pass time, saw the artwork, and was like, "why not? It can't be as bad as Myself, Yourself or Black Clover." Boy was I so wrong, but in all the right ways.

    It's so stupid and nonsensical that to call it "silly" would ...

    i enjoyed this a lot more than i thought i would
    i was scouring the vast lands of crunchyroll to find an anime to kill time with, and came upon this. i was pretty hesitant to go in, and was not expecting much, but i really did enjoy this one! i like how they reversed the genders of damsel in distress and knight in shining armor, as well as the characters themselves. im sure there are a lot of flaws that any ol' anime critic god can dish out like ...

    I was sadly disappointed
    I'm surprised at how boring I found this series. It's only 12 episodes long, so I'm grateful for that, but I had to force myself to watch the last half.
    I just didn't like the characters. The protagonist is annoying and useless. The hero is stoic and boring. And the rest of the characters are uninteresting apart from their colorful clothing and weapons.
    Is there supposed to be romance between ...

  • a different take on witch drama
    was not expecting this kind of story, but its pretty cool to see the strong female lead take charge even though it still is a harem type show. I enjoyed the animation and the awesome end theme to Witch Craft Works, it could really use a second season to really see how far they can go, maybe explore more of the parents background. wouldn't mind adding this to my anime collection.

  • Far more entrtaining than I thought.
    I have to end up giving this 5 stars, while there is some mid-grade CGI that is quite noticeable, they kept it to the fast-paced scenes and a couple that would have been literal hell to do normally..so its passable.

    This starts out with many questions yet it progresses smoothly as the pieces start coming together and the larger picture is apparent.

    Take note this is NOT a harem, don't be ...

  • Cute Subversion But With Holes
    I liked that this was a harem anime in which the male protagonist was essentially the damsel in distress (and annoyed about it enough to get off his butt and try). He was genuinely concerned about causing harm to the people around him, which was far better than his ego being hurt "as a man."
    Things I liked:
    1) Most of the characters, particularly Takamiya and Kagari. They were both complicated ...

  • Binged the entire show in a night...
    Title says it all.

    Great voice acting and animation. Delightful story with meaningful character growth in only 12 episodes. I have to read the manga now.

    Fun, but obvious manga promo
    This series explodes. Explodes with loud and flashy magical battles and outstanding rendering of effects. Sometimes with color and sound. It explodes with outstanding and imaginative character design. It explodes with skillful use of the entire screen in just about every scene. Keep an eye on the peripheral characters and background as you watch, because there's a lot going on around the central ...

    Wasn't horrible but...
    What I liked about the anime:

    - interesting role reversal of the typical hero/princess type of behaviours/tropes.
    - good build up of the mystery surrounding Honoka and the overall reveal of it
    - nice artwork

    What I found "meh" or just didn't like:

    - began to drag more and more with each episode until I just felt that it was tedious and only stuck with it because I'm the type of ...

    Thoroughly disappointing
    It has a great premise, and I was looking forward to how it integrated magic into the real world, but Witch Craft just does not work. I could barely finish episode 4. Here's some things that are dealbreakers:
    - There are really only two characters, neither of whom have any depth of complexity
    - the entire premise of every single person ever adoring this one girl, and kicking the crap of the the ...
