On Ai's 13th birthday, a family meeting is called by her sisters, Hana and Hoshi. What could they possibly tell Ai, aside from "happy birthday"? That she's a witch, of course! Due to their special blood, girls born in the Anju family all have the possibility of becoming witches, provided they perform "the rite". But the rite seems to have a part that Ai can't fulfill...
Features a oneshot, "Sister Witch": when Ruri Ichiyanagi turns 13, she gets an explanation for the strange little "coincidences" and "lucky things" that have been happening to her - she's a witch! But why is her mother so adamant on Ruri not activating her powers? And what does the little girl at the park, who always hangs around Ruri, have to do with all this?

Note: unfortunately, the manga was dropped after only 3 chapters, so there is no resolution to the main story.

It's...a bit on the iffy side. On one hand, the basic idea and mythology are pretty intriguing and kept me interested enough to finish the series - or at least what's available, considering the fact that it was dropped right when it seemed to be picking up the pace (3 chapters in). There are some parts that don't really work, relating to Yuu and Ai (the twins) - specifically, the way their relationship changes. Without giving spoilers, it seemed very farfetched and left a bad taste in my mouth. Ai already had enough motivation to become a better witch, so why introduce that tired cliché?

The art is OK, if a bit flowery. Naoko really doesn't like connecting outlines, apparently. Sometimes the heavy use of screentones gets in the way and details are difficult to make out.

Overall it was a fairly basic shoujo story, and I found Ai's sisters (especially Hoshi) and her aunt much more interesting than Ai herself. If anything, I'd recommend skipping the main story and reading the "Sister Witch" oneshot directly; things are explained at the beginning so you won't miss out on anything. The oneshot has better pacing and more interesting characters and situations than the main story, in my opinion.
