WHAT’S THE FOX *ACTUALLY* SAY…?!
It’s exceedingly rare for me to take great interest in Slice-of-Life Anime, but Flying Witch happened to be an exception.
Makoto is the witch-in-training, who moves into the house of a long-time friend while she attends a local school for witches. In the meantime, her friend’s sister is introduced to this whole new world that, until that point, she had never known truly existed.
Makoto’s own sister is already a master witch, and spends her time travelling abroad experiencing everything the Earth has to offer — usually getting drunk at most stops she makes. As such, she drops by to visit Makoto a couple times during the course of the series and interesting things tend to happen both times she does arrive.
Highlights include: The giant, flying, stone whale; Makoto’s Mandrake moment; the “What’s the Fox Say?” scene at a nearby witches’ restaurant, which is snapshot in the image above.
Overall, Flying Witch is a pretty neat show — coming from someone who isn’t really fond of Slice-of-Life! The OP song for the series is also kind-a catchy….
