Ah nice, the slice of life with fantasy themes adapted into an anime.

There's not too many chapters out so far but I think it could still work out. Hope it will debut for Fall or Winter.

Well, i do not know anything yet. But it is something like "Kiki's Delivering Service V2.0"? Nothing against that. But lets see. seeing an Anime getting "Birth" and then finally be on screen, is something that you not get everyday

I was going to say the same thing. Then again Sabrina the Teenage Witch had a black cat and broomstick. I think it's just a very common trope.

I've liked what I have seen of the manga, so this one will be on my radar.

I can't believe I'm going to say this but they need to work on that title, maybe make it a little longer. Flying Witch may not be Kiki's Delivery Service but it is Kiki!

Countryside Magic, Flying to the North, Or even "My Cousin and Me the Witch".

Everything else looks worth keeping an eye on. Love those covers.

Gotta wait for PVs, but if the art is anything like the manga then I'm watching for sure.

Can't say I'm terribly excited, the manga's not bad but I'm not sure if I could take it's slow slow pacing with barely anything happening. There's charm to it but I thought there was a lot more charm in it's one show which, for better or worse was scrapped to be what we have now.

This has been on my "I should read that" list for a while... I guess I have to decide whether to read first or second now...

Ohh nice. The manga is a pretty good SoL / comedy so looking forwards to it.

I just hope it won't be DEEN animating. Last time I was concerned about their Log Horizon S2, and the studio totally delivered on those concerns. On the other hand Flying Witch is slow-paced, so even their shoestring budgets can't do it too much damage.

This manga tries so hard to be like Yotsuba, except with witches and mystical creatures. I still enjoy it and this is not a dig at it, but it's obviously going after the Yotsuba dollars.

Which is fine, because I absolutely love Yotsuba. Very Happy

If Vol.4 is coming out next April, I'm guessing this will be aiming for a winter 2016 release?

Aslong as those in the production committee are willing to give it a decent budget, I think it'll be fine.
Low budget, and it'll suck regardless of the studio.
