Nico Wakatsuki has finished her six years of witch training and is moving back to town by herself. As a new witch, she must choose a familiar to accompany her. However, unlike the other witches, she wishes to pick a non-animal familiar. There's no better companion than Morihito "Moi" Otogi—her childhood friend who happens to be an ogre. Morihito is vehemently opposed to being her servant, but he reluctantly accepts his fate after learning that a curse would revert him into a strange cow-tiger hybrid were he to disobey a witch's order.

Due to Morihito's father leaving for a business trip and Nico's mother remaining behind in the Witches' Holy Land, the two teens find themselves living together under the same roof. While Nico is ecstatic to be living with her crush, Morihito finds that her magical antics and overall clumsiness create more problems than solutions. With a prophesied disaster to befall Nico within the year, Morihito must do everything he can to protect her as her bodyguard while also upholding his duties as her familiar.

From the creator of SKET Dance, we have yet another wild idea that JUMP occasionally accepts. It's already known that SKET Dance has been successful in it's run; especially it's comedy. Being awarded the 55th Shogakukan Manga Award for best shounen manga in 2009 is not an easy feat–making it stand alongside it's peers and alongside Gintama; being one of the best jack-of-all-trades anime serialized in JUMP. However, enough with SKET Dance.

Kenta Shinohara has risen back to his roots and released a promising manga in JUMP recently. Witch Watch is a wacky idea and starts off self-aware in it's randomness which is a small detail ...

Very Enjoyable Manga to say the least. Ton of wholesome scenes and pretty great comedy all round. For anyone who's looking for a great and underrated slice of life rom com then this might be the manga for you

There is some essence to the story that is quite intriguing, but overall the series (so far) seems to prioritize the slice of life and comedic aspects of the manga more

For a romance manga however don't expect too much romantic scenes as there aren't much ( as of chapter 24) although romance is currently being built up.

It may not be one of the best newest Shonen Jump ...

Witch Watch has been very intesting so far, and it has been a series that I routinely read every Sunday. I was a huge fan of Sket Dance several years back, and I loved Astra in Space, so reading this was a no brainer.

So far the plot has been rather thin, and there hasn’t been much that has happened with the characters. But I do have confidence that the the author will attack much more serious plot lines sooner or later. There is a heavy usage of comedy in the plot, and some of the chapters can be hit or miss, but many of ...
