About Flying Witch DVD

Flying Witch contains episodes 1-12.

Traditionally, when a witch turns 15, she's supposed to go out into the world alone to study magic. Makoto's parents, however, believe that their directionally-challenged daughter should get a high school degree. Instead of being sent out on her own, Makoto and her cat Chito find themselves traveling from the bustling city of Yokohama to Aomori Prefecture, where they'll stay with relatives until Makoto finishes school. It's going to be a big adjustment, and it only gets more complicated since "normal" people aren't supposed to know that witches exist… something that she tends to forget. In the meantime, Makoto, her cousins, and her new friends will have to work just a little harder to adapt to a whole new way of life when the new girl in town is a FLYING WITCH!

This is a great show(!), full of warmth and love and--occasionally--magic. The premise is one with which we've become familiar ever since Kiki flew into our lives: a young witch must leave home to train and make her way in the world. But leaving home doesn't necessitate leaving familial support, so we see city girl Makoto move in with her country cousins, the Kuramoto family of Aomori. The Kuramoto branch had previously cared for Makoto's older sister Akane when she too was training, so they really don't mind the bouts of magic that are again intruding into their everyday lives. Chitose, the youngest of their number, actually becomes rather taken with the idea.

But this show is not about magic, and is a better show because of it. Flying Witch instead focuses upon family, specifically upon accepting and supporting each other despite differences. It is an emotionally nuanced exploration of love lived, and five stars aren't enough.
