Kaoruko Mochizuki runs an herb shop in a small seaside town. One day, a mysterious man dressed in black named Kaname Hibiki enters her shop and reveals that Kaoruko is actually a witch. And what’s more, Kaoruko needs Kaname to help control her awakening power!

Among the shocking news that Kaname imparts is that Kaoruko’s mother is still alive and has entrusted Kaoruko with the immense power of the Witch Queen. As long as Kaoruko has that power, she will be the target of humans and demonic spirits alike. Kaname claims to be a “knight” that protects witches, but then he steals a kiss from Kaoruko…!

Not one of my favourite story by the mangaka but it was still really good!! XD

Wold have liked more magic or more things to do with her herb shop but it still was great! I ended up buying all five volumes so I'm satisfied. XD

I love this one. It was only 5 volumes. It trumped Midnight Secretary my previous favorite by this Mangaka. I felt like there was more plot in this one and it didn't include pointless drama for drama's sake.

First of all, I love this author's stories and art. For this particular manga I am very disappointed there were only 4 chapters and I haven't heard or seen any news regarding more releases.

sad I wish there was more.

I REALLY want to read this one, but sadly I can't read Japanese. I am worried that if I pick this one up, it will turn out like a lot of others and only get partially translated, than dropped by the translators...
PLEASE let this one be different and begin getting regularly updated/translated....PLEASE~

BTW Sensei's art is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! So beautiful <3

With any Oomi Tomu manga you're promised three things: beautiful art, bishies GALORE and an amazing (and often steamy HEH HEH) romance. Four, actually: generally, all her stories have a supernatural element to it that adds an interesting twist to things. Majo no Biyaku is no different. Right now I'm loving the dynamic between the hero and heroine, and the (SPOILER! sort of) angsty shadow of doubt that has been/will be (HOPEFULLY) cast over their attraction what with Kaoruko's sudden powers of attraction (heh heh). I'm looking forward to watching their romance bloom. She isn't exactly my favourite of Oomi Tomu's heroines (Midnight Secretary's was KICK. ASS) but there's a sweetness about her that wins you over. ^^ And Kaname is just... rawr. Hahaha! I can't wait to read more! (I've even gone on to find all the Chinese raws I could. v.v And my Chinese is terrible.)

The story so far is getting pretty interesting--a lot of ingredients have been thrown into the mix in a single chapter: knights, witches, unicorns, dragons, white magic, black magic, an absentee mother in magical stasis, yada yada yada. I'm looking forward to where it goes! Can't wait for the smut to arrive as well, because DANG the male lead is attractive. I can't believe that I'm feeling jealous of a fictional two-dimensional female character.

Kaname actually reminds of the head shinigami in Black Butler... Same slicked back hair, same mannerism of pushing his glasses up the bridge of his nose, etc.

And as always with Oomi Tomu, I love the art! The eyes are drawn so prettily and there's this beautiful tendril-y quality to her work that's hard to describe.
