Synopsis

Since childhood, Elaina has always been fascinated by the stories written within her favorite book, especially those about Nike, a renowned witch who had numerous great travels across the world. Wanting to experience the awe of adventure herself, Elaina strives to become a witch, and despite the numerous trials that come her way, she eventually succeeds.

Now a full-fledged witch, Elaina finally embarks on her long-awaited journey, in which she meets many people along the way, learning their various stories. Through all of this, she explores the world at its fullest—experiencing both its bright and dark sides—starting her legendary tale.

The Journey of Elaina has an identity crisis. On the surface, it appears to be an inspiring adventure across a magical fantasy world. In truth, it is something else entirely.

In the beginning, it is exactly what you'd anticipate. Then it blindsides you with something unexpected. The show reveals itself to be a thoroughly depressing, tonally maligned 'journey' driven by a narcissistic main character through a nihilistic and morbid world. It always left me anxious, nauseous, frustrated, and sometimes all of the above. If you want to draw meaning from suffering, it needs to be natural and purposeful. The Journey of Elaina manufactures pain to give ...

"Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination."

Fiction often tells us a similar tale: one of the hero saving the day, where happiness is a commodity given as a reward for good and just deeds.

Good intentions may be rewarded, but it is not always so.

Unlike most anime, Majo no Tabitabi doesn't portray karma as an infallible law from which we can never escape. Sometimes the characters will strive to resolve an issue ...

The world isn't beautiful, therefore it is.”
― Keiichi Sigsawa

Majo no Tabitabi was not only one of the most pleasant surprises for me in 2020, but perhaps one of the best anime series to come out of 2020.

Adapted from a light novel series written by Jougi Shiraishi, directed by Toshiyuki Kubooka (who had also previously directed the Berserk film trilogy), and produced by C2C, a studio not known for a huge resume outside of their contribution to WorldEnd (commonly referred to as SukaSuka), Majo no Tabitabi would seem like your typical run-of-the-mill, cutesy, lighthearted fantasy series with a prominent and colorful witch-themed setting. With such ...
