Production I.G’s anime film adaptation of Satoko Narita’s The Klutzy Witch children’s book series was recently announced for a March 31 opening in Japan, and now we have three more cast members to check out. The latest to join the production are Yoko Hikasa as Megaira, Rie Tanaka as Leia and Jun Fukuyama as Abel.
Takayuki Hamana (The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light) is directing the feature, with Kiyoko Yoshimura (takt op.Destiny) handling the script and Marumi Sugita (chief animation director on Asteroid in Love) on character designs.
POPLAR publishes The Klutzy Witch series in English and describes it like so:
Fuka, a little witch, is training to be a better witch like her mother, a queen of Silver Castle. She is a lively girl and cares about her friends, but she gets into trouble sometimes. Karin, a princess of Green Castle, is Fuka’s best friend; and Chitose, a prince of Blue Castle, is her friend from childhood. Fuka goes to the Wood of Wolf to look for a tunnel with them, but they find a hole instead. This is an exciting story of adventure and friendship. It’s the first in the series.
