Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is an anime about kissing girls in order to copy their powers, what?
We follow Yamada Ryuu, and his journey through high school in order to belong. His journey results in him developing witch powers (the power to copy powers) and meeting the several witches. I liked how they introduced each witch 1 by 1 so that it doesn’t create confusion in the storyline. Yamada helps these witches with their problems, that being the problems associated in obtaining the powers they have.
The characters in Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo are the highlight, some are quirky, some are pleasant and some are cunning. It was nice to see the interactions between these characters both at lighthearted and dramatic times. There were a few heart-warming and shocking moments throughout the anime, which made for a great roller coaster of a journey throughout the season.
The music and animation were pleasant on the eyes and ears, where there weren’t too many moments it felt out of place.
Shiraishi Best Girl!
OP/ED: The OP/ED were colorful and matching with what they anime was. They were bubbly and gave a sense of energy to me to sing along when they played.
Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo Was it Good?
Overall Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo does a pretty good job in highlighting its strengths that being the characters and how they interact along with the story. I anticipated this anime after reading the manga, where I believe it did live up to what an anime studio can do with a limited number of episodes and I look forward to the next season.
I dumbed down Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo to a show about magical powers and solving problems. With a great cast of characters and the development they recieved I recommend the following:
- Trinity Seven
- Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!
- Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de
Note: If you haven’t read the manga, I thoroughly recommend it!
- I’ve watched the Live action-drama as well, Nishiuchi Mariya does a really good job portraying Shiraishi.
- Odagiri best girl in manga.
