On the official site for the manga written and illustrated by Tite Kubo, Burn the Witch, it was reported that the release of the series' first compilation volume, scheduled for October 2, has been postponed.
The statement did not state the reasons for this suspension, not even defining it as such, since it was simply removed from the Shueisha publishing house's catalog of releases. On the other hand, Kubo began publishing the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on August 24. In fact, the author previously published this series as a 62-page one-shot in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in July 2018.
The play is inspiring an anime adaptation in OVA format, which is scheduled to premiere in theaters in Japan on October 2. The production is carried out by Studio Color under the direction of Tatsurou Kawano and scripts written by Chika Suzumura.
Burn the Witch Synopsis
Historically, 72% of deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastic creatures invisible to most of the population. While unknown to many, some characters have been confronting these creatures. Only Reverse London residents living on the far side of London can see the dragons. Even so, only a select few become qualified enough to become witches or wizards who will make direct contact with them. The protagonists of the story are Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind, an organization for the protection and management of dragons. Your mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of its people.
