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.

Witchcraft Works is the first manga I have ever bought and really enjoyed.
The synopsis does little to justify how amazing and quirky this manga is.
Fun fact: This manga was supposed to be a yuri manga that is the reason why our protagonist has a girly name..

The main characters I found them amazing, some would say they don't have much of a personality but I say they have the most. The little things they do are what you have to notice which reveals more of their personalities. Take for example Kagaris obsession with Takamiya which is very high almost yandere but the kuudere cools it down read more

Being a mi-monthly series and sitting at six currently out it may seem a bit early to give this a score of any sort. Despite the simple premise of a strong girl needing to protect the lead it is done in a way I find to be absolutely charming.

The interactions between the two main characters, Kagari and Takimya makes for plenty of funny but also sweet moments. One of the elements I like best is how the powerful female lead doesn't smack around the male lead, all too common in other series for my tastes. Even better, she doesn't try to him him away. read more

Manga: Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
Both are about a guy and a group of witches surrounding him. They are very comic, have a slight harem romance touch and even look as if they were a parody of each other at times. Witch Craft have action packed into the mix too.

Manga: Witch Hunter
The concept of witches become a pivotal point for both series. In fact, magic is a major form of art that is practiced as a way to fight both offensively and defensively. Witch Craft Works and Witch Hunter revolves around a story with supernatural elements. The main character get into conflict with the witches as they learn more about them while discovering untold secrets in their worlds. Although their settings contrast, both series provides insight on the MC's development over the course through experience in battle. Relationships are also fleshed out that concentrates on a variety of emotions for both series.

Manga: Soul Eater
They are action mangas about witches influenced by Ancient Greek mythology (Medusa and the gorgon sisters) and also have plenty of comedy.

Manga: Iris Zero
Despite having different premises, Iris Zero and Witch Craft Works takes up a concept involving supernatural powers and creates a story with unusual gimmicks. The main male protagonist is a normal guy who one day gets acquainted (in Iris Zero with a confession) with a popular girl at school. From there on, the story shows their relationship and the circumstances that revolves around them. There is supernatural powers involved in both series although Iris Zero also has a psychological essence to the story. Give both a try if you're interested in modern supernatural series.
