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
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
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
This episode struck me as rather dull after remembering last week’s eventful episode. I’m trying very hard to figure out the angle here. What are they planning? What can I expect from Witch Craft Works right now? The story is just too unpredictable right now. I have no idea when Honoka’s latest witch friend shows up again.
I think it’s best to see all of the characters as witches and wizards. You never know which character might show up dressed as a witch or wizard in order to abduct Honoka. Last time it was his sister, now it was both his sister and his science teacher. There’s just no end to them. You have to ask yourself how many witches and wizards are gathering inside that city right now.
Those scenes where Honoka gets caught doing god only knows what with Ayaka are obvious. Anyone could see those coming. Honaka’s sister has a thing for him and Ayaka is far too mysterious to read, so god only knows how she thinks of Honaka. It is quite clear that we can expect many more scenes where one character walks in on the other.
Now, where the hell did that strange twist come from? The school principle stands above all else, followed by the princes, Ayaka, and the student council president. The student council president wasn’t to Ayaka’s liking so she fired her and made Honoka president instead. Seriously, where does that even come from? This story is all over the place.
I’d like to use the last part of my reviews to write up a few expectations. I have none. It’s too complex to come up with decent predictions. I know Honoka is going to get into trouble again and that the white witch will appear again, especially now that Ayaka’s mother is investigating the matter. I might as well sit back and enjoy the mysterious ride.Read More
What in the world is going on with this story? It’s all over the place? You think the story is going as you somewhat expect until it makes a 180 degree turn a minute later. I thought that I figured it out by now, but no… I have no idea what to expect anymore.
First thing’s first; Honoka’s mother is unreal. How did he not know about witches and magic when he lived in that house with a family as messed up as his? Never mind his little sister that wants him for herself. I’m just shocked that his mother turned out to be this mental case that supposedly loves Ayaka’s mother. If finding out that your mother is kind of a lesbian isn’t bad enough, she actually tells them that they kind of arranged for Ayaka and Honoka to get married in the future because two women, Honoka’s mother and Ayaka’s mother, simply can’t. What kind of messed up situation is that? Honoka’s mother and sister both have very strange personalities.
I’m just glad that I found out what they were talking about when they said “white stuff”. I’m guessing that they meant that witch that suddenly appeared when Honoka swallowed that thing. She is cute, powerful and very mysterious. I believe her name was Evermillion if I read correctly. She got way too little air-time this week.
I’m guessing that it’s her that everyone is after. We all saw how powerful she is. I’m guessing that Honoka is her host and that she shows herself from now on whenever Honoka needs her or when her host is in immediate danger. It’s really been wracking by brain for weeks. I’m glad to have seen this episode! But I still need to see more!Read More
