3 min read

As part of the presentation of the 20th-anniversary of Bleach from Tite Kubo, it was revealed back in March 2020 that his one-shot manga property Burn the Witch is getting expansion with more of the manga and the anime film. The film saw an October 2nd, 2020 theatrical run in Japan for two weeks while also being streamed worldwide. Outside of Japan, Crunchyroll brought it out subtitled in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.

Viz Media announce during Anime Expo that they would be bringing out the series on home video in October 2022 with details to come later. Those details are now coming in as it’s set for an October 4th, 2022 release. The regular edition will come with the movie version as an extra along with the clean ending. The limited edition will have the same but also include a twelve-page full-color booklet and different packaging that you can see below. They’re priced at $24.98 and $39.99 respectively. And yes, it’s not clear how a booklet and a different-looking cover makes it worth $15 more just yet.

The English cast for it includes:

  • Allegra Clark as Noel Niihashi
  • Olivia Hack as Ninny Sprangcole
  • Griffin Burns as Balgo Parks
  • Sean Chiplock as Bruno Bangnyfe

The film was directed by Tatsuro Kawano and has Yuji Shimizu as the assistant director. Chika Suzumra worked on the screenplay adapting Tite Kubo’s original work while Natsuki Yamada is the character designer. Animation production was handled by Studio Colorido.

The Japanese cast includes Asami Tano as Nini Spangle, Yuina Yamada as Noel Niihashi, Shimba Tsuchiya as Balgo Parks, Hiroaki Hirata as Chief, Rie Hikisaka as Osushi-chan, Mugihito as Wolfgang Slashhaut, Chikahiro Kobayashi as Bruno Bangnyfe, Haruka Shimizu as Sullivan Squire, and Miou Tanaka as Roy B.

Plot Concept: Historically 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people. While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons.

Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden “reverse” side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them.

The protagonists of the story are witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), an organization for dragon conservation and management. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people.
