Let’s take a deeper look into some of this crates anime titles!
BURN THE WITCH
Set in the same world as Bleach, Tite Kubo’s manga Burn The Witch follows two witches working for the western branch of the Soul Society. As fans followed Ichigo while he grew and time passed in his life, it was impossible not to get deeply attached to the characters and the storyline. From daring rescues, hard-won battles, losing his Soul Reaping powers and then gaining them back again and winning the final battle in the series, the entire narrative was made to be described as epic. So, it’s understandable that there are high hopes for Kubo’s next big work. Burn The Witch, set in “reverse” London, begins with Noel being harassed on her way to work by Balgo, a pervy boy who always asks to see her panties. Yes, his mouth-breather behavior makes us all uncomfortable, but Noel just kicks him away and enters reverse London using a magic coin and a phone booth. Soon after she arrives, it is revealed that her job as part of the Wing Bind is to protect and control the dragons that the people living in “Front London” can’t see. Specifically, in the Conservation Rangers, which is the department Noel and her partner Spangle are in. The focus there is on working with domesticated dragons.

Among a stone world of statues, Taiju encounters one other living human: his science-loving friend Senkuu, who has been active for a few months.
