Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina (Vol 1) – Story by Jougi Shiraishi, Art by Itsuki Nanao, Character design by Azure
Magic, fantasy, witches, wizards, teen, manga, fiction.
Elaina, ever since she was a small child, had read books about magic and faraway places. She wanted to become a witch and was willing to do all that she can do to become one. She grows up to the teenage age to take an entrance exam to become an apprentice to a witch. Along her journey, she meets extraordinary people who she helps as she learns to become a full fledged witch.
I am saddened that I was only able to get the first book of this possible Wandering Witch series. This was really cute and heartfelt to read. We got to see along with Elaina the world she is in. The artwork is equally amazingly detailed and the dialogue felt so natural. There were a lot of good and learning moments for the protagonist that readers can take the lesson too. I felt myself wanting to be right there in the action with Elaina but unfortunately book jumping is only fantasy. I suggest reading this book. This will take readers on adventures that are unique and different.
