Synopsis

Ninny Spangcole is the leader of popular girl group, Cecile Die Twice, but her ambitions stretch far beyond a successful music career. In the hidden underground world of Reverse London, Ninny and her partner Noel "Niiha" Niihashi strive to achieve loftier goals as "Witches," members of the organization Wing Bind which is dedicated to the handling of dragons. These powerful creatures once caused over half of all casualties in the city proper, prior to Reverse London splitting away from Front London. As dragons are invisible to most Front Londoners, their existence has become a mere myth, and Reverse Londoners have taken up the front lines. Thus, Wing Bind was created, prohibiting non-licensed individuals from coming into any contact with dragons.

Ninny and Noel have their work cut out for them when they are assigned as the caretakers of Balgo Ywain Parks and his dog Osushi-chan. With trouble persistently trailing close behind him, the two girls are left to deal with the aftermath. Even more problems arise when Macy Baljure, Ninny’s former bandmate, appears in Reverse London with a dragon by her side.

Preliminary (4/5 eps)
Tite Kubo's brand new work after his mega-hit series — Bleach, is quite a story.

[Story 7/10]

After reading the One-Shot, I didn't have much hope about the story as I didn't understand most of it. While I had mixed feelings, I still went ahead and gave it a try. And guess what? It was better. While these 4 chapters are like a short arc of a manga, it still is enjoyable. There are dragons, witches, Kidos/spells, and Pipes too (which Kubo refers to as something witches blow). Hilarious.

One may not find it interesting as first, but after reading it all, they'll surely likely to read ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (4/5 eps)
The fantastic mind of tite kubo presents: Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt but now they're witches in London or something i dunno.

Mean-spirited comparisons aside, i want to like this manga, i really do, hell i even had a good time reading it but it's just ok at best. The amount of generic shonen anime shit is just so boring at this point, you have a new fantasy world with a new fantasy organization hunting new fantasy monsters by using, yet again, a power system that nobody knows how it works and it really doesn't seem to matter outside of being an excuse for characters to ...

Ugh, well, maybe burn it for real. I have noticed it with other old timers returning to work on new shounen series – they often just can’t or don’t want to grow the story properly, they want to jump right into profitable “coolness”. But the coolness comes from a well-built world, without the foundation it falls flat. Burn the Witch feels way too superficial to properly magic and soar in the sky on its broom.

The story is set in an alternative modern world again – this time it’s Reverse London. I have read several mangas with a fantasy London, and none of them were good ...
