Witch Craft Works

W.. Wh…. Whaaaat!? How did I miss this!? I actually read up on With Craft Works last month and I was not impressed at all. It came across as a childish, predictable and girly show. I never would have thought that I would enjoy it as much as I did. Hell, I’m already thinking about writing about it.

Witch Craft WorksGreat artwork! I absolutely love Ayaka. Her emotionless face and lovable personality match perfectly. You can never tell what she’s thinking or what she wants, I love it! Everything is incredibly detailed and the characters all look great! The author really did it big with this one!

Love the story! I wanted to say that it’s been done a lot, but it only just started. So what if one character is following the other around in order to protect him? This could lead to many great things, especially since pretty much all the characters hate character B for being close to character A. Chaos will undoubtedly follow.

I do recommend this, I really do. I can already tell that this is going to be another one of those underrated shows that people quickly overlook. Still, I must ask you to give Witch Craft Works a fair shot. I expected a disaster and stumbled upon twenty minutes of joy. How could I not recommend this after all of that? Try it.

Plot Summary: Takamiya Honoka is a regular student whose only problem seems to be that he sits next to Kagari Ayaka, the school’s #1 beauty. They have never spoken to each other before and any small interaction between them immediately results in her fanclub beating him. Yet when a falling part of the school’s building is about to send him to the afterlife, it’s Kagari that comes to his rescue. Only… she’s dressed as a witch, carrying him in her arms and floating on a broom?! Kagari tells him it is her mission to protect him and that now she can finally protect him openly rather than undercover.

  1. Finally someone else who really liked it! I mean, the MC is only useless because A: This is the first episode, and B: He doesn’t even know what’s going on yet. The fire and explosions were realistic (despite the enemies being robotic rabbits), and Kagari’s personality is fantastic. I can see this series doing great things. But I can also see it doing badly. Hopefully the former!
