Witchcraft Works Anime Gets Green Lit
The 25th volume of Kodansha’s good! Afternoon magazine, releasing on Wednesday, is set to announce the green lighting of Ryu Mizunagi’s comedy fantasy manga for an anime adaptation.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, as I was when I found this bit of news, it tells the story of the inevitably normal-but-not-really high school student Honoka Takamiya as he attempts to live his life and deal with all the problems that all students do: studying for exams, balancing work, and getting the crap beaten out of him for occupying the desk next to the most popular girl in school. The girl in question, Ayaka Kagari, is not at fault for these attacks as, at worst/best, she appears completely indifferent to his presence. Until, of course, the clock tower of the school falls on him, and it is revealed that she has not only been protecting him from the shadows, but she is also a very powerful witch. Her true identity revealed, she determines that it is now unnecessary to continue protecting him from the shadows, and his life will never be the same.
No word so far on any details of the staff or cast.
