The series was first published back in October 2006, with the first volume titled Rakudai Majo wa Princess (Failure Witch Is a Princess). Now, the series has a total of 18 volumes, including a short story anthology. The latest volume for the series was published in October 2013 and was titled Failure Witch and the Palace of Darkness.
The books are only available in Japanese on Amazon since there is no English license yet.
Failure Witch is Satoko Narita’s debut series. It won Poplar’s first Dream Smash! Taisho award. Illustrator for the series, Enaga Senno also illustrated the Japanese version of the popular children’s book Alea Aquarius.
