Takamiya Honoka is a regular student whose only problem seems to be that he sits next to Kagari Ayaka, the school's #1 beauty. They have never spoken to each other before and any small interaction between them immediately results in her fanclub beating him. Yet when a falling part of the school's building is about to send him to the afterlife, it's Kagari that comes to his rescue. Only... she's dressed as a witch, carrying him in her arms and floating on a broom?! Kagari tells him it is her mission to protect him and that now she can finally protect him openly rather than undercover.

Witch Craft Works! An anime about witches and stuff. An average anime with cliché characters and not much of a plot. Even though I say that, it was still an enjoyable watch. With outstanding animation and the great OST, WCW was a nice 12-ep anime which was pretty funny with it's catchy ending song.

Story. 7

The story is about a normal boy, going to school as always, but then one day the schools most popular girl starts to interact with him. After getting to know her, he learns of her identity as a witch. She tells him about the special "being" inside of him and starts read more

An anime where the villains are more entertaining to watch than the main cast, Witch Craft Works takes pages from Pokemon and does it better than Team Rocket.

Story: 7
In a world with two warring witch guilds, the Workshop Witches and the more evil Tower Witches, our main hero is to be protected by a very strong Workshop Witch. The typical story of a powerless protagonist to become a strong hero is overdone and things that happen throughout this story are standard to the plot of a rising hero. There are parts where I was confused on contracts and such, but this comes more read more

Both have the same romance and school genre.

Both involves girl protecting guy from baddies.

Both also involves girl being with the guy all the time.

Both also involves girl who were strong fighters.


One anime has a brocon element, while the other has a yaoi element couple with oedipus complex from the guy's mom.

The guy in one anime is very comfortable being around the girl, while in the other anime the guy isn't getting enough space from the girl.

One anime has comedy as it extra genre, while the other has action and magic as its extra genre.
The female protagonist is protecting the male protagonist and the female happens to have feelings for the male protagonist. Although the female lead in Haiyore! is kind of annoying but she and the female lead from Witch Craft Works give off a comedic feeling.
