Burn the Witch has been on everyone's mind since it made a one shot debut under creator Tite Kubo. Now, the Bleach spin-off is heading towards it big television debut with impressive speed. Burn the Witch will debut its anime miniseries in October, and fans got their first-look at the show thanks to a new trailer.
The promo went live earlier today in honor of Weekly Shonen Jump's new issue. Fans were treated to a look at Burn the Witch in action, and as you can imagine, fans have a lot to say about the reel. Oh, and it seems the PV has fans even more hyped for the anime than before.
The clip can be seen above as it showcases the story and its fantastical setting. Burn the Witch takes place in the United Kingdom as its two heroines use magic to keep peace. When humanity comes under threat from some dragons, it falls to the girls to fight back, and this promo proves Burn the Witch has given these fight sequences an all-star treatment. The PV has some gorgeous animation, so that is a good sign for Kubo's new series.
