“Near the end of the Showa Era. (Late 1980s)

In the old mansion rumored that a witch lives, Aoko Aozaki who just started learning sorcery and her teacher, a young mage Alice Kuonji, lived together.

But as if he was guided by an invisible string of fate, a young boy called Soujuurou Shizuki joins them and a strange communal life begins…”

“Late 1980s. The golden age full of brightness and spirits. The boy who came to the urban city passes by the two witches who live in the present”

“The boy lived a really normal life

She lived with pride and confidence

The girl lived hidden as if she’s asleep”
