Gear Up For The Flying Witch Anime With Flying Witch Petit!

On Friday, 18th March, the official website for anime series “Flying Witch” streamed the first episode of a series of anime shorts entitled “Flying Witch Petit” in a bid to get fans hyped up for its parent anime that will start airing later this year on 10th April.

The anime short can be previewed in the video below :

This short reveals the main character Makoto Kowata having tea along with her cat familiar Chito. Makoto laments that she is unable to get Mandrake for her tea and instead brew three alternatives : plantain, dandelion, and horsetail tea. Chito then proceeds to ask which of the three types of tea contain magic strengthening properties to which Makoto replies that they all build a healthy body which would therefore improve one’s magic. Makoto then ponders whether it is possible eat to tea leaves raw and wonders what it would taste like – which led her to take a bite and make the apparent comment that tastes like grass.

Flying Witch is an ongoing manga series published by Kodansha created by mangaka Chihiro Ishizuka.
