Kosuke Satake’s The Witch and the Beast manga is getting an anime adaptation, as announced by the manga’s editor Shiraki on Twitter. In the tweet, the editor thanked everyone for the support and stated that more information will be revealed later.
The manga began serialization in Young Magazine the 3rd in 2016 and then moved to Monthly Young Magazine in 2021. The reason for the move was the ending of Young Magazine the 3rd publication. Kodansha US licensed the fantasy manga in English and describes the plot as:
Ashaf: a soft-spoken man with delicate features, a coffin strapped to his back, and an entourage of black crows. Guideau: a feral, violent girl with long fangs and the eyes of a beast. This ominous pair appear one day in a town in thrall to a witch — a ruler with magic coursing through her tattooed body, who has convinced the townsfolk she’s their hero. But Ashaf and Guideau know better. They live by one creed: “Wherever a witch goes, only curses and disasters follow.” They have scores to settle, and they won’t hesitate to remove anyone in their way, be it angry mob or army garrison.
