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.

Where did this come from and how do I get more? Absolutely phenomenal from start to finish. I found it to be unpredictable, surprising, the art style complemented the story, the characters were interesting and had flaws and strengths.

The characters, the world, the story, given so few episodes I didn't think it could come together. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the animation and all of it.

No notes. Give me more.

It is associated with the bleach universe, however, I am not that familiar with bleach, just a few Easter eggs. Not anything related to the main plot.

I think that people that give ...

Mixed Feelings
As this three part anime series opens we are told that most disappearances in London are due to dragons. Most of the inhabitants can't see them though. There is also a second City of London; Reverse London. Here people are aware of the dragons and they are controlled by 'Wing Bind'. Protagonists Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole are two witches who work for Wing Bind to protect the city.

I enjoyed this short series; it is just a pity it didn't have more episodes. The setting is good and the characters are fun to watch. The scenes of them battling against dragons were suitably exciting without ...

Burn the Witch, the anime adaptation of Tite Kubo's work, had a lot of potential but ultimately left me feeling somewhat disappointed. While it boasts an intriguing concept and the animation quality is undeniably impressive, there are several aspects that prevent it from reaching its full potential.

Firstly, the world-building is both a strength and a weakness. The alternative version of London where dragons and witches coexist is fascinating, but the anime barely scratches the surface in terms of explaining its intricacies. I was left with many unanswered questions about the setting and its rules.

The characters, unfortunately, felt underdeveloped. The main duo, Noel and Ninny, have ...
