Synopsis

Historically, 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people. While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons.

Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden "reverse" side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them.

The protagonists of the story are witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), an organization for dragon conservation and management. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people.

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.

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 read more

Burn the witch made me feel like I was watching the 6th episode (and only the 6th episode) in a 12 episode series.

The first part of the anime jumps straight into action with minimal information. We get about 2 minutes of the anime establishing the setting, another 2 minutes of vague implications about who and what people are, and then all of a sudden we’re fighting dragons in the middle of the street. The lack in background isn’t so bad that you can’t follow what’s going on, but the anime would have been a million times better if everything had been laid out properly before read more

Oh my, the time has finally come for Burn the Witch, a much-anticipated movie constantly advertised by your favorite streaming site: Crunchyroll.

I can best describe this movie as average and enjoyable. In fact, I can't even call this a movie, maybe an OVA would better describe it.

Let me start off with the first thing that greets you when you watch an anime, the animation. I must say Studio Colorido has done a great job at animating this movie, the fight scenes are visually pleasing and the movements are fluid, there's no sign of shoddy work done by a bunch of underpaid chumps. Although some frames read more
