The Dawn of the Witch Anime Announcement
The Dawn of the Witch Action
The war that raged between the Church and the witches for five centuries ended in peace only a few years ago. But in the shady places of the world, the embers of this ancient conflict are still simmering.
At the Royal Academy of Magic of the Kingdom of Wenia, a difficult student named Sable is studying, having no memories of his time before his enrollment. On the instruction of the headmaster Albus, he left the kingdom to travel to the south as part of a training exercise, where the insurgents, without magic, still constitute a serious power.
He is accompanied by a group of people who are strong both in their abilities and in their personality; Roux Cristasse, known as the Witch of Dawn, seeks the forbidden knowledge of primal magic in the “Grimoire of Zero”, the brilliant girl Holtz and the beast Kudd.
What truth will they reveal on their journey to the South…?
