Phanora Saori Hayami The Witch and The Beast S1 E4

  1. Ashaf and Guideau take the episode off as a new case needing the Order of Magical Resonance needs someone who is a necromancy specialist.
  2. Enter Phanora and her right hand and servant, Johan, who helps a local cop with an unregistered insurgence of the undead.
  3. This leads them to discover the person behind creating over 40 undead redheads who he has already used to begin his grand plans.

Johan Ryota Osaka The Witch and The Beast S1 E4

  1. Switching to a different member of the Order of Magical Resonance did bring a bit of a boost to “The Witch and the Beast.”
  2. However, with Phanora and Johan not being the most interesting of characters, while we continue to be impressed by the lore, we aren’t by the characters.
  3. Also, as it becomes clear each case has a formula, it makes too much about “The Witch and the Beast” come off as interchangeable from case to case.
