Synopsis

Arusu believes in magic. With all her heart, she believes that magic is possible and that it can be used for good deeds and fun games. But suddenly, she finds herself transported into another world, ruled by a mysterious elite of witches—and these witches don't seem to be in it for the fun. They're hard at work capturing sprites, the native magical beings of the world, and forcing them into slavery. Once Arusu realizes that her new surroundings aren't just a dream, she sets out to change things.

Tweeny Witches (or Mahou Shoujo-tai Arisu for Japano-philes) involves female lead Arisu being whisked away to a magical world where witches make use of sprites to maintain the magic of their realm. In spite of her human origins, Arisu finds that she too can make use of magic in the realm and becomes acquainted with witch apprentices, Eva and Sheila, as she learns more of the world's workings.

At a glance, Tweeny Witches sports nothing groundbreaking in regards to its premise and characters. The focus on a magical world with witches is inspired from Western lore and the series is rather predictable in its plot developments ...

Mixed Feelings
I see what they were trying to do; that's why it pains me even more to give it such a bad grade.

The Good things:

The concept was great: a human girl who wants to be a witch falls into the witch realm, and finds it different then what she was dreaming of.
In theory a great start, yeah? I'll tell you where it went wrong at "the bad things".

The art, holy-moly the art was fantastic. It was refreshing, almost realistic, but not off-putting. It seemed to have come directly from a colorful web-comic like W.I.T.C.H. (but with even better art). There are so many ...

I can't actually believe that people are giving this anime such high score. I mean seriously!!
The art is awful, especially since there where way better art styles than this in the 2000s.
The animation is butchered and some time there are huge mistakes in how the characters move.
The story is a big empty nothing full of plot holes and we see character development in only one character, Sheila. Also if there is comedy in there I can't find it!!
The sound I suppose is not that bad but it doesn't save anything.

Over all to anybody coming to this anime to see an ...
