Synopsis

While walking through the forest one day, a witch named Alyssa finds a bush glowing with a magical aura. She discovers a baby who, although not a witch, possesses magic that is too strong for that of a mere human. As such, Alyssa decides to raise the child as her own, naming her Viola.

Sixteen years later, Viola is all grown up and now towers over her youthful mother, and her mature looks cause many to confuse their ages. Nevertheless, Alyssa adores her child despite Viola's possessive streak and tendency to drive away anyone she fears will take away her mother's love. Viola may not be sure where she came from, though she has all she needs in Alyssa and the plethora of Alyssa's friends who have come together to raise her. Under Alyssa's guidance, Viola will learn to master her magic and make her adoptive mother proud.

The Family Circumstances of the Irregular Witch — yeah, that's quite an irregular family with dysfunctional circumstances.

Mangaka Piroya's only work that is Dekoboko Majo no Oyako Jijou, feels as if the author had some ideas for a simple story and plot, but, however, he/she decided to execute it in a rather...let's just say, questionable way of a gimmicky gag humour comedy that's as idiotic and ham as it can ever be. And before you ham your fists at me, I know the "comedy is subjective" tropey expression all too well.

These kinds of "strangers picking up abandoned children" stories have slowly, like Isekai reincarnation stories, become ...

Mixed Feelings
The show is very flat emotionally. There is no drama, no disastrous misunderstanding, no heart-squeezing shows of affection.
The relations betweeen each character remain what they were at their introduction throughout the whole story.
The world in general is very static, so slice of life fits this show to a T.

Comedy is very rudimentary as well, with obvious set-ups and punchlines.

All this doesn't make the show lacking though, it just aims to fit the niche of easily watched and forgettable shows. It doesn't feel wrong to drop it at whatever episode, or pick it up.
It's fine for watching when you've had enough of everything. I'm reluctant ...

Preliminary (12/12 eps)
If I had to choose between watching this show again or having to survive 10 years alone in Antarctica without food, shelter and clothes, I would not hesitate to choose the latter.

Despite this being a comedy I failed to laugh ONCE and you will too. I really question the morality of this show too because one of the main characters is a 223 year old witch who looks no older than 12 while her daughter is 16 and acts like she's 12, while serving no real purpose besides providing fan service.
I can let that slide but it's the fact that they keep putting them in ...
