Now THIS is good news ... the manga is a delightful, lighthearted work that is engaging as well. If they can hold to the source material this will be a good one, I think!

Before I opened the thread, I thought it was an anime original creation but then after seeing it, seems like it is basically yet another Japanese reiteration of Bewitched.

From the looks of it as well the tagline itself, it's good to see more anime taking place in rural towns since we don't get enough of it lately but whatever said, the girl strangely looks like Chitanda with green eyes.

For myself I would not put it on the same level of bewitched ... without going into spoilers, of course. But maybe you mean something by that phrase that is different than what I am imagining?

What I'm trying to say is that the key visual looks like Bewitched because of the girl flying with a possible familiar and broom, not to mention the tagline at the beginning (Aomori city) indicates that it may very well take place in a rural setting which I like to see more of it.

Since it's going to be set in Aomori, I really hope they take a trip to the Sannai-Maruyama site at some point.

Let's see... She live in small village, fly on broom, have some familiar and can use magic. Yep, typical witch to me.

Didn't expect this to get an anime. Yes the manga is great but a lot of the chapters are veeery slow moving. It's perfectly fine for the manga but will it really have enough content for an anime?

Wow, I didn't expect this manga to ever get an anime adaptation. This is a true 'slice of life', sort of like ARIA. If they stick to the manga, we'll get one of the most soothing anime in recent years.

I'm totally looking forward to it.

Well, I'd not heard of this before, but with a recommendation like that my interest is piqued.

I feel that it's less Bewitched and more Saint Onii-san in the idea of "the normal life of a person with supernatural abilities".

If it really carries the feel of Saint Onii-san, then consider myself kininarimasu.

woah, really? I am happy with this. Quite quirky but still has that peaceful feeling, which is rather unique and I enjoy it.

Well it's not really moe thing. I didn't read Sain Onii-san, but if should compare it to something, maybe Yotsubato focused on more mature part of cast?

It will air on NTV so most likely animation will be produced by Madhouse.

Very much these.

It is not really pushing the "moe" envelope ... though I guess the adaptation could take that angle of things. The source material is another issue.

Edit: here is an ANN link with a little more about the series http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...v-anime/.91134

No cast announced yet, but there are a few nice images from the manga at the above link....

Pretty much a rural slice of story where some of the characters just happen to be witches. Read up to the pancake chapter, and it's very mellow, for sure.
