Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: I really enjoyed this unique portrayal of witches! This series did a fairly good job of introducing the supernatural world but I felt like it could have been a bit longer.
Art is very unique to this mangaka. It gives an old school vibe that is kind of sketchy but it’s still modern. Very sharp looking. The male lead is quite handsome and the heroine is stunning as she develops throughout the series.
Plot was interesting and unique. I predicted some stuff that actually didn’t happen which was pleasantly surprising. I think the series could have been a bit longer to have some more fun with the world but the ending is satisfying. Very cute sexy series about witches.
Final Rating: 4/5
Extra: From the same mangaka of Midnight Secretary
