Witches are shrouded in mystery with funny spells and potions, cauldrons filled with boiling funky liquids, pointy hats, and a broomstick. Though they’re usually viewed as disturbing characters who do wicked things like turn people into frogs or use magic to make you fall asleep forever (they still exist!), witches have long existed on the pages of fairy tales for children by JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series books – even becoming allies. But just because we’ve all been exposed to them doesn’t mean there aren’t more surprises!

As time passed by however, this hybridization began to show its flaws; namely those being size related limitations on both sides of the family tree leading to subpar performance across all fields for either side alone: not enough strength for any battlefield role for one’s size category but too slow if they were larger than normal humans.

A spin-off of the original series titled Brave Witches aired from October to December 2016 and a second spin-off, which will be called Luminous Witches, is scheduled for 2021.
#4. Hauru no Ugoku Shiro
Hauru no Ugoku Shiro is a classic. Right off the bat, if you haven’t watched this Ghibli movie, you definitely should! It’s so magical and it will make your day go by like nothing else.
The film takes some of its inspiration from the 1986 novel “Howl’s Moving Castle” written by Diana Wynne Jones – not to mention all those other Miyazaki classics as well (The Cat Returns? Spirited Away?).
You might have seen glimpses of Sophie in Howl’s moving castle before- she was turned into a witch after an old woman cursed her for being nosy when walking past her home on the market day back in the 20th-century kingdom where magic and technology are side-by-side with each other.
“The movie appeals to Western audiences due to the style of characterization making it accessible for audiences outside of Japan.”
#3. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
In Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, the lives of two girls quickly change when they encounter Kyuubey. A cat-like magical familiar offers them a proposition: he will grant any one of their wishes and in exchange, they will each become a magical girl with enough power to fulfil their dreams.
However, Homura Akemi warns not to accept the offer because everything is not what it seems.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka MAGICA is a series about the inevitable consequences of being a magical girl and how one has to pay an extraordinary price just for one dream.
#2. Kiki’s Delivery Service
In Kiki’s Delivery Service, a 13-year-old girl moves to a seaside town with her talking cat Jiji and becomes a courier for the community.
After learning how to control her broomstick she begins delivering packages all over town but soon loses confidence in herself when worries about disappointing others start getting into her head causing problems with controlling other magic spells as well.
But after realizing that it’s okay if people don’t like what you have done because you are doing something out of care is more important than pleasing everyone at once, Kiki gets back on track improving both flying skills and magical abilities alike so she can perform those tasks better this time around!
Kimihiro Watanuki can see spirits and other assorted supernatural creatures, which is an ability he does not like. On the way home one day while being bothered by some of these strange entities, he was inexplicably compelled to enter a stranger’s house.
There Kimihiro met Yuuko who claimed she could help him rid himself from this curse in exchange for his servitude at her “store” that grants wishes to people.
And so begins Watanuki’s adventures through weird and wonderful events as they go on living their lives together with the store becoming more successful than ever before!
If you want to watch an witch anime, I recommend checking out all these in the list. All of them have a lot of witch characters. All are great shows with lots of action and magic!
