MANGA TITLE: Witchcraft Works Vol. 10 (ウィッチクラフトワークス)

STORY AND ART BY: Ryu Mizunagi

FIRST PUBLISHED IN JAPAN: Kodansha, Ltd.

PUBLISHED IN USA BY: Vertical Inc.

RATED: N/A

RELEASE DATE: December 26, 2017


Kazane gets Honoka and Kagari to help rebuild her house (along with the aid of some furry, feral friends.) Since Medusa and her minions moved in next door, Honoka asks for her help in unlocking a mysterious pendant. Inside is a world of memories which reveal forgotten history of the Kagari estate, and a fiery familiar that once terrorized the residents…


In 2010, Ryu Mizunagi’s “Witchcraft Works” was serialized in Kodansha’s “Good! Afternoon” publication. Meanwhile, a 12-episode anime series from J.C. Staff aired on Japanese television in 2014 and was streamed on Crunchyroll.

With a total of eight manga volumes printed in Japan, Vertical has picked up the series and is releasing it in North America.

“Witchcraft Works” revolves around a normal student named Honoka Takamiya. He sits next to Ayaka Kagari, the most popular girl on campus and despite sitting next to her, he has never talked or interacted with her.

And when he does, he is often beaten up by her fanclub.

But one day, Takamiya is attacked by a Tower witch and he is saved by Ayaka Kagari, a Workshop Witch, who reveals to him that she is a witch and her job is to protect him. And it is revealed that the Tower witches are after him for some apparent reason.

But because of the danger he is in, Kagari now spends a lot of time with him, drawing the ire from his fellow classmates and her fan club.

In volume 2, Takamiya becomes an apprentice and tries to learn the basics of witchcraft. But one day, he is attacked by Chronoire Schwarz VI, the Tower Witch for some apparent reason.

Meanwhile, as more Tower Witches try to target both Takamiya and Kagari, Takamiya learns important secrets about his sister and also a family secret that will change his relationship with Kagari.

In volume 3, it’s supposed to be a normal day at school for Takamiya and Kagari but suddenly a building is destroyed and Medusa. What does she want with Takamiya?

But that is not the only person looking for him, so is the faculty adviser, Mr. Mikage, who explains the importance of Kagari.

Seeing how Takamiya will always be a target, there is one way to prevent it happening at school and Kagari has a plan to make that happen!

In volume 5, all hell has broken out as witches take on other witches, while the head of the Academy, Kagane (Kagari’s mother) has been kidnapped and is now powerless due to overusing her power. But as Weekend tries her best to search for Takamiya, can Kagari protect him?

In volume 6, in order to protect Takamiya, Kagari knows she must take on Weekend one-on-one. Who will win between these two powerful witches?

Meanwhile, Takamiya is unconscious and is in the dream world.

Flashforward to vol. 10 and Takamiya tries to get some answers about his mother and why she had a scar on her back and Takami reveals his scar that he endured when he was attacked by Medusa.

Meanwhile, Kagari’s mother wants their help in building her a home, after being kicked out for squatting and being too messy.

As Kagari gets sick, what will happen when Takamiya discovers her secret stash?

And who is Kayou Kagari, the head of the Kagari family and why does Ayake Kagari have a bad feeling about her?

And who is the chained girl that Takamiya has found?


“Witchcraft Works” is a fascinating, humorous and fun manga series from Ryu Mizunagi.

The manga showcases Takamiya, a normal guy who is often protected by a witch named Ayaka and of course, she happens to be gorgeous and very powerful.

In this latest volume, a lot of things are happening with Ayaka for some reason is getting sicker and sicker.  And out of nowhere, a woman calling herself the head of the Kagiri family shows up.  But what is her true purpose and what is she hiding beneath her home?

The artwork by Mizunagi is very good with many characters and good use of closeups and action sequences. But I absolutely love the cover and there are some chapters that feature wonderful artwork.

Overall, vol. 10 of “Witchcraft Works” is another exciting volume with a lot of action, a lot of humor in the first half, but by the second half of the manga, things become darker with the arrival of Kayou Kagari.

If you are looking for a fun, sci-fi, action-packed manga series, definitely give Ryu Mizunagi’s “Witchcraft Work” a try!
