I suspect most people read this because it's by the mangaka of 'Sailor Moon', as' Love Witch' is an otherwise forgettable entry in the shoujo genre. However, do keep in mind that the main story is incomplete and it's very, very unlikely for that to change.
On one hand, the basic idea and mythology are pretty intriguing and kept me interested enough to finish the series - or at least what's available, considering the fact that it was discontinued only 3 chapters in, right when it seemed to be picking up. On the other hand, there are some parts that don't really work, like the relationship
between Yuu and Ai, which seemed very farfetched.
The art is OK, if a bit flowery. Sometimes, the heavy use of screentones gets in the way and details are difficult to make out. Takeuchi really doesn't like connecting outlines, and I've never been a fan of her sharp chins, huge eyes and impossibly long legs either.
All in all, it's a fairly basic shoujo story. I found Ai's sisters (especially Hoshi) and her aunt much more interesting than Ai herself. If anything, I'd recommend skipping the main story and reading the "Sister Witch" oneshot instead; it has better pacing and more interesting characters than the main story, and the lore is explained at the beginning so you won't miss out on anything.
Story: 5 | Art: 5 | Characters: 6 | Enjoyment: 6 | Overall: 6/10
