As the united world fights for its freedom against the alien forces known as the Neuroi, human girls with magical abilities—called witches—continue to battle. With the persisting conflict affecting morale, Grace Maitland Steward, a retired witch who still serves in the army, presents a plan advocating the power of music as an invaluable support that can change the tides of war.

Unfortunately, her proposal is written off, prompting Grace to find a way to prove the potential of her idea to her superiors. She enlists the help of Aila Paivikki Linnamaa and Eleonore Giovanna Gassion—two witches who have already seen some success as singers—to recruit other witches and form the League of Nations Air Force's Music Squadron.

The campaign manages to produce seven promising candidates. Among them, 14-year-old Virginia Robertson, despite having no military experience whatsoever, seems to possess an ability too significant to ignore.

Coming into Luminous Witches I was hoping that I would have a good time with it. I was expecting more or less a typical idol show and I hoped for a decent amount of fun moments in it. But what I certainly did not expect was the amount of emotional power and impact that each episode had when I watched it. Luminous Witches shines because of this emotional impact. This combined with the fun slice of life moments made a complete show that has a lot to offer.

The fun moments are pretty easy to explain. The Luminous Witches idol group is made up of members ...

Mixed Feelings
After the long development of Luminous Witches we have finally gotten it. That being said, I am very pleased with how it turned out, with the animation (not including the CG) is probably the best a World Witches Series has seen. After we got a "Sliver-Link Special" in terms of animation in Brave Witches, and with an increased effort with David Production for RTB, this is best since the Movie in my opinion. CG is clunky, really clunky in Luminous. Which is a shame since Shaft really outdid themselves in the series, keeping the familiar setting and feel, but also adding in that Shaft flare, ...

Mostly incoherent with lots of signs that production of this show did not go well. The key staff involved aren't unskilled or even new to the Witches franchise, but seeing that there are SIX more producer credits than there are episodes, things start to make sense. The badness is jarring after it seemed like they were getting this series pretty well dialed-in after doing Brave Witches, Road to Berlin, and Take-Off in a row, which were all pretty great. This show is not those. Only watch if you will literally die without watching a new idol anime.

The good: The voice acting is fine or pretty ...
