Wandering Witch - The Journey of Elaina Light Novels Get TV Anime
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
A livestream for the "GA FES 2019" event on Saturday announced that author Jougi Shiraishi and illustrator Azuru's Wandering Witch - The Journey of Elaina (Majo no Tabitabi) light novel series is getting a television anime adaptation.
The anime will star:
Toshiyuki Kubooka (Harukana Receive, Berserk film trilogy) is directing the anime at C2C, and Kazuyuki Fudeyasu is supervising and writing the series scripts. Takeshi Oda is adapting Azuru's original character art for animation, and Kazumasa Nishio is credited with concept designs.
Once upon a time, there was a witch named Elaina, who set off on a journey across the world. Along the way, she would meet all kinds of people, from a country full of witches to a giant in love with his own muscles—but with each meeting, Elaina would become a small part of their story, and her own world would get a little bit bigger.
The novel series ranked at #9 on the 2018 Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! list, and at #6 on the 2019 list. SB Creative published the first novel in April 2016, and published the 10th volume on August 9. The 11th volume will ship on November 14.
Itsuki Nanao launched a manga adaptation on Square Enix's Manga Up! app in November 2018. Square Enix published the first volume on April 12. Square Enix plans to publish the manga in English starting next year.
