On September 9, 2022, Comic Meteor’s official Twitter account announced that Piroya’s Dekoboku Majo no Oyako Jijo (lit, “The Family Circumstances of the Unreliable Witch”) manga is getting an anime adaptation. The announcement also featured a key visual with the witch Alissa and her adopted daughter Viola (pictured above).

What is the Dekoboko Majo plot?

The story begins when a witch named Alyssa, who lives alone in the forest, is taking her daily walk, whereby she stumbles upon an abandoned baby. Although the baby appears to be human, it has a high amount of magic. Alyssa decides that the baby’s parents chose to abandon her in the forest due to them being afraid of her high magical power. When the baby wraps its tiny, little hand around Alyssa’s finger, she is instantly charmed and decides to adopt the baby girl.

In the blink of an eye, 16 years pass, and Alyssa has raised her daughter Viola peacefully. However, Viola has unexpectedly matured into a very tall and voluptuous young woman. When compared to Alyssa’s petite body and small breasts, anytime they encounter people in the village while shopping, people immediately assume that Alyssa is the apprentice and that Viola is the witch.

Due to the fact that Viola looks like a seductress, she gains the attention of the men in the village. When Alyssa notices this, she begins to worry about her daughter falling in love with a man and leaving her. Viola misunderstands her mother’s worries and thinks that her mother wants to find a man and then leave her. Viola thinks about all the curses she can use if some man shows up and tries to take her mother away.

While they are discussing “romance”, Viola decides to make a golem and call it Papa. Alyssa wonders how their tiny family grew all of a sudden. No one ever said raising a child would be easy but Viola definitely takes the cake!

Will the mystery behind Viola’s origins be revealed? Why does Viola possess so much magical power? We’ll have to wait for the anime to find out!

On July 11, 2018, Piroya initially launched her story as a one-shot on Flex Comic’s Comic Meteor website. On July 3, 2019, the manga began serialization on that same website, and so far three tankoubon volumes have been released.

Volume 4 will be released on September 12, 2022.
