Volume 1


Honoka Takamiya is an average student. Ayaka Kagari, his classmate who sits next to him in class, on the other hand is the class "Princess." Ayaka is tall, strikingly gorgeous and has a regalness to her that almost exudes a royal attitude. Despite their proximity in school, over the school year the two have never shared much conversation...until today. So today as class ended, Takamiya was suddenly attacked by a catered witch and her band of bunny-costumed thugs! And if that were not enough of a shock, this average joe would then be saved, like a princess by none other than Ayaka Kagari... a witch herself!

Preliminary (59/118 eps)
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 ...
