Witchcraft Works is a fantasy-themed anime series that debuted in 2014. Ry Mizunagi started the series’ first steps in 2010 before the anime. The anime is simply a loose adaptation of the manga series from whence the original came. In Tokyo’s Cinemart Shinjuku theatre, 2000 people saw the debut episode of the anime seven years ago. It was made by the same studio that produced the record-breaking animation One Punch Man and the J.C. Staff production Food Wars! The Crunchyroll-licensed animation debuted on Tokyo MX between January 5 and March 23, 2014.
Let’s see if there are any new updates about Witchcraft Works Season 2, shall we?
Witchcraft Works Season 2 Release Date
J.C. Staff or any associated companies with the anime as of July 14, 2022, at the time of writing, have not yet renewed the anime for a second season. The first season of the anime was released in 2014, however, a fresh season hasn’t yet leaked. Despite the years passing, it happens frequently that fresh seasons of anime are confirmed. In keeping with this idea, a new season of Witchcraft Works could be forthcoming as the manga still has some writing left to write.
Ryu Mizunagi is the author and illustrator of the Witchcraft Works manga, as was indicated at the beginning of the article.
The manga was first published on March 5, 2010, by renowned manga publisher Kodansha, and it ran through February 7, 2022. The manga series now has 15 volumes with an English translation available. The first season of the anime was based on the first six volumes. As a result, the manga should have lasted for a long period to supply ample source material for the anime’s second season. There is enough source material for a second season despite the fact that 11 volumes haven’t yet been turned into an anime adaptation.
Witchcraft Works Season 2 Cast
- Honoka Takamiya (多華宮 仄, Takamiya Honoka) voiced by Yūsuke Kobayashi: Honoka is a second-year high school student. He first questions the many coincidences that occur to him. One day, the Tower Witches, a gang that had been clandestinely pursuing him, assault him. Ayaka, who turns out to be a Workshop Witch and has been defending Honoka for a while, manages to stop the onslaught. To the dismay of the rest of his classmates, Ayaka decides to warm up to him now that she is free of the need to conceal her goal. He holds her in high respect and senses that they have a particular bond and a shared past, but he is unable to recall anything beyond these hazy impressions.
- Ayaka Kagari (火々里 綾火, Kagari Ayaka) voiced by Asami Seto: Ayaka is a gorgeous, smart, and statuesque girl who is the school’s favorite and the chairwoman’s daughter. She is over a head taller than Honoka. She seldom changes her facial expression, though, and is quite stoic with limited social intelligence. She is a classmate of Honoka’s and the titular “Princess” of the whole institution, ruling over everyone in the institution with the exception of the chairperson. Many people are unaware of the fact that she is a “Fire Witch” () with the power to manipulate and control fire. She and Honoka are connected by potent magic that renders her impervious to death, able to overlook injuries like being pierced by many knives, and endowed with an endless supply of immense power. If Honoka’s faith in her wanes, though, strong strikes like Medusa’s petrification can still have an impact on her, and any direct damage Honoka takes is immediately transferred to her. Due to her mother’s strict training, she is a powerful warrior even without magic. She has the duty to defend Honoka from the tower witches, but she also extends this duty to anybody she feels is obstructing or intimidating him.
- Kasumi Takamiya (多華宮 霞, Takamiya Kasumi) voiced by Ai Kayano: The younger sister of Honoka, who also happens to be a Workshop Witch, possesses a teddy bear familiar she calls “Maka-ron”, short for Macaroon (depending on the translator). She also has a severe brother complex with Honoka; according to their mother, despite the fact that they are both teens, she climbs into his bed or attempts to take showers with him every two days. She frequently clashes with Ayaka as a result of her intense jealousy of the latter, especially when she catches the two of them in very suggestive circumstances. She eventually earned the title of Workshop Witch and was tasked with guarding her brother when Ayaka wasn’t present. Since Rinon is her teacher, she is also a skilled hand-to-hand combatant.
- Kazane Kagari (火々里 かざね, Kagari Kazane) voiced by Sayaka Ohara: She is the chairperson of Tgetsu High School and the surrogate mother of Ayaka. She also serves as the leader of the city’s Workshop Witches. Over the years, Kazane has acquired several monikers, “Bad End” being the most well-known. Kazane is a short-tempered, aggressive, chain-smoking mother with little tolerance for problems, in stark contrast to her daughter. Despite being relatively clever, she often makes decisions based on instinct rather than reasoning, which leads to absurd misinterpretations and the omission of crucial information. As the leader of the community’s workshop, Kazane has access to magic so potent that it guarantees that when anything is destroyed by magic, all surrounding residents will remain unharmed, albeit sufficiently significant magic damage to a significant portion of the city can deplete her stores.
- Kyōichirō Mikage (深影 恭一郎, Mikage Kyōichirō) voiced by Kazuyuki Okitsu: a chemistry teacher at Honoka’s high school who assists in controlling the non-witch population’s memory whenever magic destroys a portion of the city. Additionally, he seeks witches in the entire city to join the Workshop. Although Mikage has his own goals for Honoka and his “white substance,” it is unclear what drives him.
- Touko Hio (氷尾 凍子, Hio Tōko) voiced by Kana Asumi: A witch from the Workshop who specializes in ice-based magic, which she may use to cover the entire city in a sweeping cold front if she feels in imminent danger. As Ayaka had virtually no social intelligence to speak of, Kazane asked Touko, an old friend of Ayaka’s, to keep an eye on her. She has continued to do so up to the present. Touko supports her family of 12 siblings by doing a variety of part-time jobs across the city, from maid to bartender, which conveniently enables her to give Ayaka crucial information when needed. She served as the Student Council’s Vice President prior to Ayaka taking up the role, and is currently the “Vice-Vice President.”
- Rinon Otometachibana (乙女橘 りのん, Otometachibana Rinon) voiced by Noriko Shitaya: A Workshop Witch and Kasumi’s mentor in the organization’s structure, she also oversees a crew of criminals that disguise up as hamsters. Known as “Bear Killer” for reportedly using her bare hands to choke a tiger by the name of “Bear-eye” to death. publicly contested Honoka for leadership of the student government of the school until she lost. Honoka nearly defeated her himself, but he hesitated to deliver the decisive blow when he had the chance, allowing Ayaka and the Ivory Quintet to put an end to the fight. Instead of using visible magic as most witches do, Rinon prefers to utilize it to amplify her incredible physical power. She is supposed to have gone through Ayaka’s punishing training with Kazane in the anime.
- Atori Kuramine (昏峰 あとり, Kuramine Atori) voiced by Ikumi Hayama: A big sword is held by a soft-spoken witch with ears like cats. Atori loves to use a little, magical ventriloquist doll that she keeps close by virtually always when speaking. possesses a dubious grasp of first aid.
Witchcraft Works Season 2 Plot
Honoka Takamiya appears to be a typical high school girl leading a typical life.

Even the smallest interaction between Honoka and Ayaka, who sits next to her in class and participates in the same classroom cleaning responsibilities as she does, results in Honoka being assaulted by Ayaka’s Fanclub.
However, one day when Honoka is emptying the garbage, a school building is for some reason thrown in his direction. Fortunately, a Witch swings to his aid and deters the assault. It is revealed that this Witch is none other than Ayaka, who has been keeping watch over and defending him ever since.
