Majo no Tabitabi


It’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey. Well, at least for this traveling witch. Elaina is a free-spirited witch who travels the world seeking nothing more than stories to tell. A leaf on the wind, she goes wherever the breeze takes her, meeting new people and finding adventures along the way in this slice-of-life fantasy manga by Ikki Nanao based on the original light novels by Jougi Shiraishi and Azure.


Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina began as a light novel series written by Jougi Shiraishi and illustrated by Azure that has been published by SB Creative under their GA Novel label since April 2016. The series has been adapted into a manga illustrated by Itsuki Nanao that has been serialized on Square Enix's online manga magazine Manga UP! since November 2018.

An anime adaptation was announced during the "GA Fes 2019" live event in October 2019. It is being produced by C2C and features Toshiyuki Kubooka (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King, Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket) as director, Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Ben-To, By the Grace of the Gods, Dropkick on My Devil!) as series composer, Takeshi Oda (A Certain Scientific Railgun, Oneechan ga Kita) as character designer, and AstroNoteS (High School DxD Hero) as music composer. It premiered in Japan on Oct. 2, 2020 on Tokyo MX and ATX. It will run for 12 episodes and is available to stream in North America and the British Isles through Funimation.
