Manga/Anime/Novel: Nishi no Yoki Majo's original incarnation was an eight-volume, three side-story novel series done by Noriko Ogiwara.

Tokyopop has picked it up, and will release it under the title Good Witch of the West ' Nishi no Yoki Majo's literal translation ' this October (2006).

Good Witch was a show I picked up on recommendation from a friend of mine, and while I was initially disappointed, it proved itself down the stretch.

The main sticking point here was the story. Don't get me wrong, the plot itself was well-written with lots of twists and turns. However, this show was poorly paced, which is what happens when you put either some or all of 9 light novels into a 13 episode series. The first half of the show was a whirlwind, and while this is understandable considering how the main character is swept up into a world she doesn't read more

The story itself would have been better if it hadn't been so condenced. Oddly enough I didn't think that the story was all that rushed and things were going to fast. I would have liked a breather every once in awhile though. The whole series was full of moments that you had to catch or be lost forever. As it is I'm going to have to watch the series again to catch things that I've missed.
The art was pretty good. The series was nice to look at although it wasn't anything shocking in my opionion. You could tell that they put some work into read more

Actually, in truth, this anime is one of the best short animes I have watched!! It made me want to know more and what is going to happen next~ It's very gripping and this anime is an anime that someone would really want to finish in one day because it is just that good. There may be some parts in which they drop the anime's tension by a bit, but that's all what's bad about it. But also because it is shorter, it keeps viewers interested all the way until the end and love it. I know because that happened to me. I was bored read more
