Flying Witch Anime's Visual, Ending Theme Song Unveiled

Minami Shinoda, Eri Suzuki perform ending song "Nichijō no Mahō" for April anime

The official website for the television anime of Chihiro Ishizuka's Flying Witch manga unveiled a new visual for the anime on Monday. The anime's staff also revealed that Minami Shinoda (Makoto) and Eri Suzuki (Chinatsu) will perform the anime's ending theme song, "Nichijō no Mahō" (Everyday Magic).

The visual features Makoto, Chinatsu, Akane, Nao, Kei, and Makoto's black cat familiar Chito. The visual contains the text: "In Aomori, a novice witch is studying."

The anime will premiere on NTV on April 10 at 2:25 a.m., and it will also air on Aomori Broadcasting and other channels. An advance screening and cast talk event will be held on March 19 at Akihabara Gamers!.

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.

An as-yet-unannounced artist will perform the opening theme song "Shanranran feat. 96 Neko." 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.
