Concrete details about the anime implementation, such as the format (series, film, OVA, ONA, special) or the participants in the production as well as a date for the publication, are still pending. Of course we will continue to keep you up to date.
»The Witch and the Beast« is based on the manga series of the same name by Kousuke Satake (“Witch and Whim”), which has been published in Kodansha’s Monthly Young Magazine since November 2016. The work comprises ten volumes so far, of which the latest volume is being published in Japan today.
A German-language release from the publisher Altraverse is expected to start on October 17, 2022 under the title »The Witch and the Beast«. The first volume can already be pre-ordered.
More on the subject:
Ashaf is a mild-mannered man with delicate features, a coffin strapped to his back and an entourage of black crows. Guideau is a wild, violent girl with long fangs and the eyes of a beast.
The ominous couple arrive one day in a town ruled by a witch – a ruler whose tattooed body is imbued with magic and who has convinced the townsfolk that she is the town’s heroine. But Ashaf and Guideau know better.
They live by a creed: “Wherever a witch goes, only curses and disasters follow.” They have unfinished business and will not hesitate to take down anyone who gets in their way, even if it’s an angry one mob or an army garrison.
