Flying Witch Anime's 2nd Promo Previews Opening Theme Song
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the television anime of Chihiro Ishizuka's Flying Witch manga streaming the anime's second promotional video on Friday. The video introduces the main cast and previews the opening theme song "Shanranran feat. 96 Neko" by an as-yet-unannounced artist. 96 Neko (pronounced "kuro neko," meaning "black cat") is a singer who has posted videos on Nico Nico Douga and YouTube under the "Utattemita" ("Tried to Sing") category, where artists cover existing songs.
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
Kana Aoi as Akane Kowata, Makoto's older sister
Shiori Mikami as Nao Ishiwatari, Makoto's classmate
Mari Hino as Inukai, Akane's witch friend
Yuka Iguchi as Anzu Shiina, a witch
Ai Kayano as Chito, Makoto's familiar, a smart 17-year old cat who is older than she is
Ayane Sakura as Kenny, Akane's familiar, who is knowledgeable about anthropology and archaeology
Ari Ozawa as Aru, Inukai's hamster familiar, who sometimes helps her in her fortune-telling
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 in 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.
