Flying Witch, Vol. 1

by Chihiro Ishizuka

Kodansha Comics, 2017

4 cups of tea out of 11

Summary: Makoto is a witch and witches at fifteen have to move out and learn their own witchcraft. Her parents are concerned so they have her go to high school still and live with her relatives. She also has a black cat familiar. A slice of life type manga following a witch in training.

Likes: Makoto, her cat, and her uncle chasing the pheasant was funny.

Dislikes: I found nothing interesting. It wasn’t visually interesting. The characters all look too similar and the environments and clothes are boring. The art style didn’t feel distinct at all. None of the characters seem to have more than one personality trait, this includes Chito the cat. The magic is also boring. And there aren’t any stakes. Everything feels flat.

Overall I didn’t hate this but it didn’t engage me at all. I won’t be continuing with the series.
