In the witches' tradition, when a practitioner turns 15, they must become independent and leave their home to study witchcraft. Makoto Kowata is one such apprentice witch who leaves her parents' home in Yokohama in pursuit of knowledge and training. Along with her companion Chito, a black cat familiar, they embark on a journey to Aomori, a region favored by witches due to its abundance of nature and affinity with magic. They begin their new life by living with Makoto's second cousins, Kei Kuramoto and his little sister Chinatsu.

While Makoto may seem to be attending high school like any other teenager, her whimsical and eccentric involvement with witchcraft sets her apart from others her age. From her encounter with an anthropomorphic dog fortune teller to the peculiar magic training she receives from her older sister Akane, Makoto's peaceful everyday life is filled with the idiosyncrasies of witchcraft that she shares with her friends and family.

Not much happens in flying witch. It's a quiet, laid-back experience that my wife and I enjoyed watching as a "cool-down" show after a day of work, or even simply after a more intense anime. It excels at creating a relaxing atmosphere in a way that feels more naturalistic than many other moe and/or healing shows. I find it somewhat hard to describe why this is without sounding silly. For example, men exist in this universe, and they just go about their normal lives. That sounds a little silly, but consider that some other shows in this genre feature no male characters of any importance, ...

Mixed Feelings
(This review has been adapted from my blog/reddit thread. Spoilers ahead!)

I used to practice magic tricks with cards a lot when I was a kid.

I wasn’t very good at it, but I could do a few. Double-flipping, “stories,” rigged decks. It was fun trying to trick my family members, seeing their bewildered faces as I did something seemingly impossible. Something that only magic could account for.

Flying Witch does not have card tricks, but it does have lots of magic – of a different kind.

The art and sound quality are top notch, but that is basically all the show has to offer. The entire series is lacking any conflict or extensive developments, which were far and away the best parts of the show. The sister's arrival and the magical phenomena (the mandrake, burning the hair, the black and white river) were the best parts, but overall the series came and went and literally it was just a bunch of characters in a room talking about obvious and/or dull things with almost every other sentence ending in sugoi! (amazing) or eehhhh! They would call such random things amazing. Oh you ...
