Izetta: The Last Witch


This is a series that just started this month, but that I hadn’t included in my list of shows I wanted to watch. I’ve seen┬áthe first 2 episodes that have aired so far, and although I’m not absolutely sold on it yet, I do quite like it. It’s set in an alternate WW2-like history (bordering on fantasy) where a German-like country invades other countries. For the most part, it comes off as a military series — with art direction that makes me think of the original Valkyrie Chronicles game — but then we’re introduced to the titular character, who reveals her magical powers (a witch, basically, but who rides guns instead of brooms). I do want to watch more of this.
