The Klutzy Witch (Rakudai Majo) is based on a novel by Satoko Narita, which first started publishing in the Poplar Pocket Bunko imprint in 2005. The plot is described as:
This is a magical country. Wind and plants, flames and water, the power of time. A mysterious world in which witches and wizards who manipulate various elements live.
Children learn how to use magic every day. One of them is “the klutzy witch” who sometimes struggled to do things.
But, be careful, for there is a magic that gently illuminates people, but also dark magic that distorts.
This is a story of a big adventure with a little bit of first love!
