I’m really starting to get nervous here. Episode nine has passed and still no sign of Vermillion-chan. I cannot get over how interesting that character was. I want to know more about her. I want to see her again and hear her talk. I want more!
You can tell that things are coming to a close. The story has suddenly become very hectic now that the city is about to get levelled. It’s a strange thing, but it gets done all the time; making characters look weaker when a new opponent surfaces. The school chairwoman, Ayaka’s mother, was known to be the strongest witch in that city and nearly unbeatable. Did it show? No. The town was falling apart after that tower witch activated and what happened to the principle? She collapsed because that spell uses up all of her magic. It’s basically her magic that’s currently destroying the entire city.
Think about it: you have a city that you must protect at all costs. You have family and friends there. Your home is there. You can clearly tell that it’s important to her. I may have missed the explanation, but why is it that the city is rigged with a spell that makes everything explode? Rather, why is it that her enemy has the ‘key’ to set it off? It makes no sense to me.
Anyway, Honoka and Ayaka can only run right now. Ayaka isn’t strong enough to fight that tower witch and her mother is currently useless. Honaka can’t fight at all so I’m guessing that Vermillion-chan will finally appear again if Honoka gets caught. Do not forget that they’re after the power that currently resides within Honoka… It’s really only a matter of time (of which we have very little right now).Read More
Yet another episodes arrives (late) and the same question keeps popping up in my mind. When exactly are the rest of the characters showing up? There are only a couple of episodes left and the war seems to have reached its final stage. Hurry up…
So old man Matal finally made his way to his underground complex. He saw how old those non-magical people were begging them, the magicians, to keep them safe so that they can continue their pathetic lifestyle as they are being drained of energy during every single minute of every single day. But that’s not why Matal went down there. He doesn’t care about their wellbeing of their wishes. They are just livestock to him, nothing more. He went down there to use all of the black Rukh that he had been saving up. Fighting off countless of evil Djinn-like creatures isn’t going to be easy, not even for the Kou Empire’s army.
That being said, Alabiba destroyed one of those Djinns like it was nothing. Not to mention Kouen, the eldest son of the Ren family, rulers of the Kou Empire, and his followers. They showed up and annihilated all of those evil Djinns with only one attack. There is once again a huge shift in power taking place. Don’t be surprised if some of the main characters start looking weak again.
That being said, what about Aladdin? He managed to hold off the Leam Empire’s Fanalis squad, but now he seems like he’s out of juice. Fighting those evil Djinn-like creatures and/or the Kou Empire’s strongest warriors might be too hard for him. I dare call it impossible right now. I’m pretty sure the rest of Aladdin’s allies will show up next week. They have to…Read More
God… I can’t get enough… I just cannot get enough of Witch Craft Works. It’s highly unlikely that it will happen, but I am truly keeping my fingers crossed for a second season. Every episode so far has been an absolutely delight. Truly.
I will probably hate myself for saying this, but still… Allow me to share a little secret with you all. I love Witch Craft Works so much that I download the episode every week before I go to work so that I can watch it during my lunch break. I don’t just watch it behind my desk either. I go to the basement where no one comes (only the IT nerds like myself) and watch it there in peace.
This week was no exception. I fired up the episode and enjoyed as I got to know a little bit more about everyone’s favourite poker face princess. She was so adorable when she was little. It seems that her obsession for Honoka started even before he actually came into her life. The poor guy didn’t even realize it.
What about now? Will we have to watch Honoka’s struggle as everyone is now looking at him as some kind of role model? His life only got harder when Ayaka made him the student council president and it showed. He had no idea what to do and in the end he had to be saved by Ayaka and the others witches (again). This was the eighth episode. I think it’s about that that Honoka “awakened” and obtained power that allowed him to protect Ayaka for a change. This reversed world where the woman looks after the man is making men look bad, and the fact that it’s one of the show’s charms makes it even worse. I am so conflicted right now…Read More
Why, Magi? Why? Why did you have to disappoint me so much!? Is this what I can look forward to after forcing me to wait yet another week? The fight might as well have ended during last week’s episode so that I could’ve been spared from this annoying feeling of pure disappointment.
I remember how the Fanalis commander held up his sword to use his Djinn equip. I remember that very well. So yeah, I was smiling when I finally saw him in that cool-looking mode as he was about to carve his way into the city of Magnostadt. Aladdin probably had no way of stopping that attack until Alibaba, late as hell, drops in and stops him from attacking. This eyesore of a character might have done something terribly wrong by stopping that guy. It’s quite obvious that Matal is still hiding something and it might’ve been better if the city was breached by the Leam Empire. I’m obviously only saying this because it might have stopped Matal’s plan, whatever it may be, from coming into fulfilment.
What do we have now? We have a bunch of pissed of characters and we have a dying Magi, Scheherazade. It seems that she, too, is just a copy of the original, and that it’s the original body of Scheherazade that’s actually dying, which means that all the copies, Titus included, will soon perish when the original body breathes it’s last breath.
What are we left with? Well, we are left with two strong characters, Aladdin and Alibaba, an empire that’s basically been defeated and on its way home, we have a Kou Empire that’s about to start its march towards Magnostadt, and Morgiana and Sinbad and his crew are still nowhere to be found. I’m guessing that Hakuryuu will show up when the Kou Empire does.Read More
It’s still rising! The average user rating for Witch Craft Works is still on the rise on pretty much every single anime website. I can vividly remember how Witch Craft Works couldn’t even get a seven. It climbed its way up to a solid 7.5 average during these past few weeks. I knew people would come around!
The story is just too unpredictable. I absolutely love that. How was I supposed to know that Ayaka would take in Medusa and the rest of her “family”? They have been after Honoka since the beginning. I can even remember Ayaka’s attempt to kill them during the second or third episode. Did I see this coming after all that? Of course not.
Forget about them all living together in the Takamiya residence for a couple of days. How about Ayaka’s decision to partner up with Medusa in order to fight against her mother? Where did that even come from? I’m just going to ignore the fact that Ayaka was quite easily defeated by her mother and move on to something else for now.
I am starting to pick up a few patterns here. Ayaka needs a strong bond with Honoka in order to become strong herself. A booty call every now and then should solve that problem, but that’s not going to happen. I’m kind of imagining Ayaka and Evermilion partnering up like Ayaka did with Medusa this week. Something has gotten Ayaka al riled up and I want to know what that is, dammit!
It may still be too early to say this, but I honestly wouldn’t mind watching another season of this if the remaining episodes are as good as the past seven. Watching Witch Craft Works has been an absolute delight. Right now I’m just watching anxiously for Evermilion’s next appearance. Honoka, get into trouble already and summon her!Read More
