Although citizens of London view dragons as a fairy-tale myth, statistics confirm that 72% of the city's deaths are caused by these grotesque beings. Unable to see them, the public is oblivious to their existence. However, in a mirror dimension to "Front London," exists a place where dragons can be seen with the naked eye—"Reverse London."

Ninny Spangcole is a member of a popular girl group. But in Reverse London, she works as a "Witch" at Wing Bind—an organization that dispatches agents to exterminate the beasts and protect the citizens of both Londons using magic. Ninny and her partner, Noel Niihashi, in addition to their jobs, safeguard Baldo Ywain Parks, a young man with an odd connection to the dragons.

Thanks to the Wing Bind's hard work, there were no fatal dragon attacks for almost a century. But the peace shatters when Baldo's presence unexpectedly causes a Dark Dragon to wreak havoc in the city. The witches are further inconvenienced when Ninny's troublesome former bandmate appears in Reverse London—in tandem with another powerful dragon.

Burn the Witch is based on an action fantasy one-shot manga by Tite Kubo and takes place in the Bleach universe.

In October 2020, Burn the Witch collaborated with the mobile gacha game Bleach: Brave Souls, where Ninny Spangcole, Noel Niihashi, and Bruno Bangnyfe feature as playable characters.

"Blowing" by NiL

Well, this movie was nice to watch. It really brought back that Bleach nostalgia.

While I can't even to begin to express how glad I am that I could experience Burn The Witch immediately as it released, it wasn't a flawless masterpiece. It tried to tell way too much story that could naturally fit in a one hour movie. The world building wasn’t as strong as it could have been. If only this movie had an extra 20-30 minutes to its runtime, like a normal length animated feature, it would have flowed a lot smoother and could have fleshed out the characters and world a bit ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime has a disastrous montage.

Burn The Witch is anything but a movie. The biggest problem that prevents any internal logic is the way it was distributed by Crunchyroll. The movie was perforated like a seasonal anime, and the transition between the 3 episodes is disastrous, the narrative tone of each episode gives the feeling that the story is going to be much bigger than it really is.

In the little show time we have, the anime tries to develop an internal problem that doesn't work or just doesn't matter, and tries to assimilate that with a drama of some characters that does not move.

When I ...

Harry Potter meets Hayao Miyazaki movies and adds some ‘can I see your pants jokes,’ so that no one will copy strike Kubo-san.

Burn the Witch is not worth the ‘Bleach’ hype. The anime follows the adventures of Noel Niihashi (Rukia should have stayed petan) and Ninny Spangcole (Hiyori is finally boing-boing). The two are Witches that work for Wing Bind in Reverse London, the western branch of Soul Society, which is also populated by Dragons. This, however, is being kept in a secret from the Human World's London.

This all might sound as an absolutely gem, as a candy that you will rush to savor. ...
