Excellent fantasy, heavy roots in tradition, & a strange kind of magic. JUST READ IT

This manga is about a world of magic where magic is able to be used by anyone, but that fact is kept secret. Magic only needs special ink to be performed; draw a glyph with that ink, and voila, magic. Our main character learns this fact by a strange hand of fate, and is shakily propelled into the world of magical apprenticeship. It's GREAT. Has very strong, very memorable characters and a very intriguing story. And that ART. Good GOD. Wrote a long review on the series you can read below. Damn, great manga.

This one I find really intriguing so far. It has good world building and the magic system is fairly well thought out. The beautiful designs of the creatures, land, and buildings makes it easy for me to accept it's fantasy world. The front story follows a young wannabe-witch girl who accidentally dabbles in unknown dangerous magic. As a results, she turns her mother and home to crystal, along with the magic book she used. In order to find a way to free her mother, the girl must become a witch and gain access to a Witches-only library to find the spell she used and hopefully it's counter-spell. She is taken in as an apprentice by the Warlock (calling a guy a witch seems wrong to me) who saved her from being crystallized with her home. The story will seem to mainly follow the girl and the Warlock's three other apprentice girls as they learn to become Witches.

Then there is the background story that's going on, which still remains unclear. I think the Warlock has some dislike towards the Witches' hierarchy and so lives away from them. Then there's some stuff on an opposing fracture of Witches that the Warlock is hunting, who seem to be trying to mess things up with the practice of magic, and for some reason the main girl is mixed up in all of it.

As for the characters, they are alright so far. There's nothing about them that makes them stand and makes me root for them. They are just there for the story. This is probably this manga's weakest point. However, none of them annoy me, so that's always a plus in my book. This is only based on 4 chapters so there is plenty of room for character development.

Overall, beautiful drawings, interesting story, good magic system, and it leaves me wanting to read more.

Beautiful art, great pacing, and inventive items and spells. I'm hooked! This series is a real joy to translate, and I hope a lot of people can enjoy it. Fingers crossed that it'll be officially licensed for the English-language market!
