An official website has opened for a TV anime adaptation of fantasy slice-of-life manga Flying Witch. The series is written and illustrated by Chihiro Ishizuka. It began serialization in Bessatsu Shounen Magazine in August 2012 and was originally published as a one-shot in 2007.

The series follows 15-year-old Makoto Kowata who moves from Yokohama to sleepy Aomori in northern Japan in order to train as a witch. While living with second cousins Kei and Chinatsu, she enjoys her daily life with the other boys and girls in the area. Flying Witch will air on the NTV and Aomori Broadcasting networks.

Better to read the parts of the manga that's translated. That's worth 19 chapters.

That reminds me. The series is released every other issue of the magazine it's serialized in. Prepare to see this anime as a bunch of shorts, unless they do something about the seemingly insufficient source material.

"Kowata Makoto is an air head with a bad sense of direction that just moved into her relative's house... But is that all?"

Impossible, there's no school setting.

if a character looks like something they made, they'll do it

In before Satomi Satou voices our main character. That is how I pictured her voice since this is getting an anime. (She looks like Chitanda Eru(Hyouka) too)
