Witchcraft Works
Volume 1


Takamiya Honoka is a regular student whose only problem seems to be that he sits next to Kagari Ayaka, the school's #1 beauty. They have never spoken to each other before and any small interaction between them immediately results in her fanclub beating him. Yet when a falling part of the school's building is about to send him to the afterlife, it's Kagari that comes to his rescue. Only... she's dressed as a witch, carrying him in her arms and floating on a broom?! Kagari tells him it is her mission to protect him and that now she can finally protect him openly rather than undercover.

Being a mi-monthly series and sitting at six currently out it may seem a bit early to give this a score of any sort. Despite the simple premise of a strong girl needing to protect the lead it is done in a way I find to be absolutely charming.

The interactions between the two main characters, Kagari and Takimya makes for plenty of funny but also sweet moments. One of the elements I like best is how the powerful female lead doesn't smack around the male lead, all too common in other series for my tastes. Even better, she doesn't try to him him away. read more

Witch Craft Works: An underappreciated role reversal manga

This is not something you stay for the plot ....mainly. What most people stay for are the characters and their personalities. The main characters being two flat mc's or are they? At first glance, we see Takamiya as a coward and Kagari as an ice queen. Bam! Nothing else but that's not entirely true as we progress we start seeing them develop. We witness Takamiya's push aside his fears to save those he cares for, his love for humanity and willing to sacrifice himself if it means saving the many even if it hurts those close to him read more

I love the role reversal in Witch Craft Works where the male lead is completely reliant on the female lead. It's refreshing to see a strong female lead stay that way consistently throughout the whole series(so far). A lot of series' have the female lead be really op at the start, but then all of a sudden they become useless for no reason and it doesn't really make sense. I'm glad that Witch Craft Works took a different approach to this since it really makes the story interesting.

The premise and plot aren't really anything new and exciting, but when you combine that with the role read more
