The 12-episode television anime series premiered in April 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and it describes the story:
In a land blessed by nature’s bountiful beauty, bizarre things begin to take place. Makoto Kowata, 15 years old, is a professional witch. She left Yokohama with Chito, her black cat, to live in the house of her relatives in Aomori. This is where she begins to train as a witch.
Even though Makoto’s powers are still limited to just flying through the sky, she and her second cousins Kei and Chinatsu surely make the most out of each and every day.
Katsushi Sakurabi (Gunparade March, Heaven’s Memo Pad, Lunar Legend Tsukihime) directed the anime at the studio J.C. Staff, and Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Noragami, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, Snow White with the Red Hair) was in charge of the series scripts. Masato Yasuno (episode animation director on Little Busters!, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) designed the characters. Singer miwa performed the opening theme song “Shanranran feat. 96 Neko.” Voice cast members Minami Shinoda (Makoto) and Eri Suzuki (Chinatsu) performed the anime’s ending theme song “Nichijō no Mahō” (Everyday Magic).
The anime adapts Chihiro Ishizuka‘s Flying Witch manga. Vertical Comics licensed the manga for North America.
