Flying Witch Anime's 1st Promo Reveals April Premiere Date
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the television anime of Chihiro Ishizuka's Flying Witch manga posted the first promotional video on Wednesday. The video reveals that the anime will premiere on April 9 on NTV, and Aomori Broadcasting will also debut the anime on April 15.
The cast includes:
Minami Shinoda as Makoto Kowata
Eri Suzuki as Chinatsu Kuramoto, Makoto's cousin who lives with her in the Kuramoto household
Shinsuke Sugawara as Kei Kuramoto, Chinatsu's older brother
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.
Katsushi Sakurabi (Gunparade March, Heaven's Memo Pad, Lunar Legend Tsukihime) is directing the anime at the studio J.C. Staff, and Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Noragami, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, Snow White with the Red Hair) is in charge of the series scripts. Masato Yasuno (episode animation director on Little Busters!, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) is designing the characters.
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 last April. The fourth volume will ship on April 8.
