「おかしなおかし」 (Okashina Okashi)
“Trick or Treat”
Oh, I get it. So you’re actually levitating yourself and just bringing the broom with you. It all makes sense now! That said, this brings up a very important question – has Harry Potter and company been riding their brooms incorrectly this whole entire time!?
With a lot of talk about Chinatsu becoming a witch flying around the comments last week, I wasn’t all that surprised (at first at least) when the best girl in the show suddenly asked Akane if she could become her apprentice. Something that I didn’t think was possible, but is apparently somewhat doable? The thing is, if Chinatsu does decide to become a witch, does that mean magic is something that someone can “learn”? Learn in the sense that if they know the basic principles they can actually perform spells and what not?! Because if I’m being honest here, I thought Akane was going to politely refuse Chinatsu because she was asking for the impossible. Sure there’s always the chance Akane is just being nice, but it sure doesn’t feel like it!
I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve laughed this hard during an anime. Seriously, can you remember the last time something was just so funny that you couldn’t help but just burst out into laughter? And the thing is, I still can’t figure out why I found the whole laughing and crying scene so darn funny. If I were to guess though, I think it was the perfect combination of timing and amount of crying/laughing that they showed. Because, whatever it was, it was perfect.
Boy, can this show get any better? After a rough (at least in my opinion) start, Flying Witch has been making leaps and strides when it comes to pushing out some fantastic episodes. Crossing the line between “healing” and entertaining, I don’t think there’s much more we could really ask for. Anyways, I’ll catch you guys next week when we’ll hopefully see Chinatsu do some magic!
