burn the witch
From the creators of the hugely popular anime Bleach, burn the witch is the fantastic story of witches who do what they can to protect humanity from the attacks of magical monsters. The story takes place in “Reverse London”, which exists next to modern London where non-magical humans live. Humans don’t know that the unseen creatures and beasts are the cause of the disasters happening in their city, nor do they have a clue about the witches that exist to save them from these unknown and unseen terrors. The story follows two witches, Noel and Ninny, who work for the Wing Band to stop monsters. One works for money, the other for pure merit.

The story centers on Robin, a 15-year-old girl born with witch genes who moves from Italy to Japan to join a mysterious witch-hunting subdivision.
