Synopsis

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.

Preliminary (1/? eps)
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 ...

Preliminary (117/? eps)
I have not read SKET Dance, but after picking this manga up I definitely will read SKET Dance. I believe in the Shinohara magic.

This manga handles both wholesome comedy and action scenes in such a tasteful way I have not seen in any other manga. Usually the typical shounen got their comical characters that are funny and others react to them, then we move on into the "serious stuff" such as a tournament power ranking, yada yada. Shinohara does not subscribe to this format, because most of Witch Watch is rather slice-of-life and a comedy for stretches of dozens of chapters. But don't be caught ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (36/? eps)
Witch Watch is a manga for a very specific audience. The characters are straightforward, the plot is inoffensive and the comedy has a distinctly Japanese feel to it.

The manga has an episodic structure, with comedy being the main driving force in most of the chapters. Sometimes the story shifts to a darker tone, but in the end everything return to the usual formula.

The art style is clean and very readable, the action scenes never felt confusing or hard to follow. Although character design could have been a bit more creative.

I recommend giving it a shot if you're in a mood for a ...
