Synopsis

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 story starts like a typical magic/action series, but soon you realise there are mysteries in droves, which is great for keeping your interest. It’s not a simple good vs bad because of x, there are deeper secrets entwined with the two main characters that allow the characters to grow – be “fleshed out” over the first few volumes. Something else to note, there is no harem. While there are a plethora (almost entirely in fact) of female characters, they don’t all swoon for the MC, which for me was a welcome change.

Speaking of characters, Kagari Ayaka the female lead is probably 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

Witchcraft Works the first manga I have ever bought and loved.
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.
This manga to me has excellent pacing and back story to the characters as the story moves along.

Characters.
The 2 main characters I found them amazing some people would say they dont have much of a personality but I say they have the most. The little things they do are what you have notice which reveals the funny personality they have like take read more

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.
These two serialisations feature prevalent themes of magic, romance, and guardianship.
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.
They are action mangas about witches influenced by Ancient Greek mythology (Medusa and the gorgon sisters) and also have plenty of comedy.
While the stories are worlds apart, the main characters give the same vibe

A relatively plain male character who gets involved with a ridiculously powerful female character with a "cold" personality.
I believe if you like one of these heroines, you'll like the other.
A harem of woman with supernatural powers fight to protect the community and keep everything in order. Both manga's have two male leads that discover they have hidden abilities, soon after they are forced into a paranormal world to learn how to use their powers and protect humanity.
