What is The Witch and the Beast About?
The Witch and the Beast begin with a Guideau, a feral girl, and a soft-spoken mysterious man called Ashaf with a coffin strapped to his back. They visit a village where they hear of a witch who has posed herself as the town’s hero. Ashaf and Guideau know more than they let on and plan to settle all their scores. The coffin strapped onto Ashaf’s back becomes a particular point of interest and the Guideau also ends up gaining attention. The witch of the town is only the beginning of a tumulus journey.
When Will The Witch and the Beast Release?
The Witch and the Beast has only confirmed the anime adaptation and has not mentioned an anime calendar for its release.
The anime adaptation was only established in August 2022, so it is unlikely for the anime to release anytime before 2023. The Spring to Summer 2023 anime calendar is the ideal release window for the series.
Since there are only 10 volumes of the manga present at this point, it is likely that the anime will release with 12-14 episodes which will span the usual quarter of the year. The production studio for the series is also yet to be confirmed.
Where can you watch The Witch and the Beast?
Streaming platforms for the anime adaptation are yet to be confirmed but Crunchyroll could easily pick up the series for a simulcast and could easily get an English Dub for the series. The TV broadcast schedule for The Witch and the Beast will be released a month before the anime is expected to release. Muse Asia could also be streaming the series in South and Southeast Asia.
