J.C. Staff Makes Flying Witch TV Anime for April
posted on by Egan Loo
The February issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Newtype magazine is reporting on Saturday that the studio J.C. Staff is producing the television anime of Chihiro Ishizuka's Flying Witch manga for an April premiere. Katsushi Sakurabi (Gunparade March, Heaven's Memo Pad, Lunar Legend Tsukihime) is directing the anime off scripts by Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Noragami, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, Snow White with the Red Hair). Masato Yasuno (episode animation director on Little Busters!, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) is designing the characters.
The comical story follows the 15-year-old witch Makoto Kowata and the other boys and girls in her daily life. With her black cat Chito, the somewhat aimless girl moved from Yokohama to live with her second cousin at Aomori in verdant northern Japan.
Ishizuka launched the manga in the September 2012 issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine (Attack on Titan, The Heroic Legend of Arslan), and Kodansha published the third compiled volume in April. The fourth volume will ship on April 8, 2016. The anime will air on NTV, Aomori Broadcasting Corporation, and other stations.
