The 25th issue of Kodansha's good! Afternoon magazine is announcing on Wednesday that an anime adaptation of Ryū Mizunagi's Witchcraft Works manga has been green-lit.

The story centers around Honoka Takamiya, a boy whose classmate Ayaka Kagari is talented in sports, excels in classes, and is attractive on top of everything. She also happens to be most powerful witch on earth. Her purpose in life is to protect Takamiya at all costs.

Mizunagi launched the manga last year, and Kodansha is publishing the fourth compiled book volume on Wednesday. The 25th good! Afternoon issue is also when the magazine switches from a bimonthly schedule to a monthly one.

The scanlation team were going at an extremely slow pace, to the point that I dropped it entirely. But now I get to watch the animation which will definitively explain the story better, because some translations in the manga were a little "WTF" to me.

I cannot wait!!! YIPPEE!!!

Works for me, how it gets an anime this early is beyond me though.

Has there been any more news on this? Like prospective airing season? It would be sweet if it were coming this fall. This and Pupa are two titles I'm really looking forward to.
