Staff Members’ Comments on The Klutzy Witch Movie
Some comments shared by the staff have been shared on their official website, giving us a hint on what the anime movie will be like.
Director Takayuki Hamana – “I’ve always wanted to be involved in a project that both children and adults can enjoy. And this time, we have a lot of very talented staff members and well-known animators involved in drawing and art, etc., and I’m enjoying making it. When the movie is released, I want to go to the cinema and watch it with everyone who loves Rakudai Majo.”
Screenplay: Kiyoko Yoshimura “This story is full of Fuka-chan’s cuteness, coolness, delicateness, and charm. She’s restless, so I’m sure she’ll bounce around on the screen. I feel very grateful that I was able to meet such wonderful work. There are a lot of recommended scenes, but they will be spoilers. I love the scene with Fuka and Lyrica at the end. It’s cute and irresistible, so please look forward to it!”
Character Design: Marumiko Sugita – “When I first saw the children in this work, they were so cute! I thought. The plump cheeks, soft outlines, and slender limbs are all childish and cute. I love the illustrations drawn by Mr. Chino, so I want to keep the atmosphere of the original drawings as much as possible and move them as animations. I’m working hard to make it, so I’d be happy if everyone could attend the theater. And from now on, if possible, I hope to draw more and more of Fuka-chan…!”
The Klutzy Witch Movie Plot
We expect the anime movie to follow the original book series, whose story is set in a wondrous world of witches and wizards. The story follows the klutzy apprentice witch named Fūka, who breaks the seal of a dark witch who once almost destroyed the world. According to the staff’s comments, we can expect the anime movie to be filled with love and warmth, including adorable-looking characters. The visuals give out wholesome vibes, and we expect it to be the most adorable anime movie of the year.
