Witchcraft Works [anime]
 
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...nga-gets-anime

Can't find more information like the staff or cast so probably they'll announce them in a month or a couple of months.

I'm pretty excited that it's getting an anime.

WOW! *pinches cheek* WOW. I never saw that coming, this is a true rarity considering japanese society, not because the male lead is your average useless male™, but because the female lead is a strong silent type that overpowers the male lead in just about everything; this is a story with a true role reversal, where the guy takes the role of the damsel in distress and our female lead is the cool hero that beats the bad guys to a pulp.

Didn't expect this to get an anime....

Synopsis looks interesting. The artstyle looks uniquely stunning that reminds me of Durarara!!, so I'll give it a try.

The average useless male™ ends up becoming pretty badass or at the very least somehow useful, but so far in the manga run this has yet to happen, so unless the anime heavily tinkers with the plot it would be no different.

They are the same age, but she is taller than him (and everyone else, except her own mother).

^ Just what I'm seeking in anime. Nice.

Richocet 2012-11-05 19:14

Wow, I'm surprised and happy that this got an anime
Wonder when its due for, considering there are like 16 scanalated chaps out (dunno about the raws)

Nachtwandler 2012-11-05 21:00

4th volume of manga would come this month. Still. It's enough for 12 eps... probably

Well, there is prob is a reason for having an overpowered protector like "awakened powers spell disaster to the world" or "future savior of the world, therefore must protect". If the manga is aimed at guys, then this guy isn't going to stay useless.

Yep, unexpected much.

I for one will be looking forward to the anime design and see whether it's a yay or nay. The manga's design kind of puts me off a bit, but eh it's OK. :heh:

Cosmic Eagle 2012-11-07 11:25

Ehh....the manga artwork isn't something extra-special but it's something I'm neutral towards.

Endscape 2012-11-07 12:36

I'm really surprised, I didn't expect this to be getting an anime. I'll be looking forward to it.

Um Date A Live? Normally in a Fantasia Bunko at some point there will be competing males with their own intentions. Shindou will have to deal with a male AST member (who rather than using power armor pilots a huge ass mecha) or some guy who does want to see the world burn.

ohhh !
Ok i was thinking he was way younger since he is smaller xd

A first saw this in the manga thread... yeah, it's certainly out of left field, but it should be interesting. Actually, a big appeal to this is the fact of just how hilarious half the stuff is in the manga (and the big explosions when certain people go overboard....), and it's not just the gender reversal part either.

Solace 2012-11-09 02:20

I love the artwork for this story, it's insanely detailed. I can see why people might not like it though. The plot (for the few chapters that exist) is pretty interesting, and the role reversal is well done, as is the humor. Reminds me of Beezlebub sometimes with the randomness and absurdity.

I look forward to it. Now someone announce Assassination Classroom, dangit! :D

Insane 2012-11-09 06:23

Just read the manga until chap 2. Man, the heroine is very epic. She's so damn strong with capacity to kick the living crap outta anything. This is the heroine i'll be rooting for (I get tired seeing weak/non-action heroines in anime).
