W.I.T.C.H.

Post by Kino karutta-chan on Mon May 03, 2010 11:04 am


Story at the beginnig:
Five teenage girls (Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia, and Hay Lin) are chosen to become the new Guardians of Candracar, a group of special magical warriors who keep peace in the universe and do the Oracle's bidding. They find that balancing this honorable position along with keeping up with their lives on Earth is a difficult task. At first, their mission was to just close the Twelve Portals between Metamoor and Heatherfield...
If you want to know something about the characters: characters : D
So, what do you think about it?? Who is your favourite character?? I only know the magazine and that's a good thing. I know the story from the start and started to read it with 12 or 13 (XD). There are different stories, who just gets worse and worse (my opinion : P), so you could say that the first is really the best. My favourite character is Hay Lin. Why?? Don't ask me~

Hay Lin is my favorite too. She had pretty awesome powers, plus she's Asian. [:)] Total cutie.

Anyway, the W.I.T.C.H. franchise. Personally, I didn't enjoy the animated show much. I feel it was kinda slow paced. It was plot heavy and darker than the likes of the Winx Club, so I appreciated that. The show came out around the same time Winx, Mew Mew Power (aka Tokyo Mew Mew) and even Magical Doremi (Ojamajo Doremi) did in the States. I've always considered that time when audiences would discover the next Sailor Moon in one of these titles. Which, in my opinion, turned out to be Mai HIME! Razz

The W.I.T.C.H. magazine sounds very intriguing. As long as it had a good story, I'm sold! ^_^

Um, let's see, how about some Hay Lin goodness?

Hmm, i vaguely remember WITCH.
It was on television here a long, long time ago.
It was really great, i think Will was my favourite. No idea why ^^
I remember having a Will figure, i think i still have it somewhere.
Also i remember reading some of the witch magazines when i was on vacation. I met a girl who had a lot of them, and i spend all day reading with her.
After that i never read any magazine again, and it dissapeared from the television. Gee, i'm really mad at this country for not selling any Manga, and the only programs they have are programs like Pokemon, totally spies and winx. But i loved that too when i was smaller ^^
(i still like pokemon and avatar tough..)

OMG! I totally LOVED W.I.T.C.H
You'll laugh that Cornillia is my favorite, but you have to remember I LOVE couples. I'm glad they didn't follow the comic/book and kept her and Caleb together. I couldn't get over their cuteness. <33

But what I did read of the book I really liked. It was very cute - I wish they continued and made a third season.

Now I have a craving to watch it. -scurries off to Youtube-

I had to bump this thread since I ran into some W.I.T.C.H. novels earlier at garage sales. They were 25 cents each, so I got them all. XD I heard they were better than the show...

you guys should meet my friend. He's a total W.I.T.C.H fanboy, burnt all the episodes onto two discs and we marathoned them all over the course of two episodes a weekend for a little over three months. The first season was kind of good but it picked up nicely in the second season with the villainess being a former Guardian. The highlight of the second season being that it was written by Greg Weisman who gave us Gargyoles, and after WITCH would later go on to give us Spectacular spiderman and nao he's giving us Young Justice
My friend has been regularly following the original Italian comics as well all the way up to the current storyarc which he says isn't so good but he's still oyal. Still its good to find other W.I.T.C.H fans on this board

HEARTS! W.I.T.C.H. Is the shit! Will is my favorite! <3 I've read all the Graphic novels I could find in English here and I've watched the entire series! Wish they would've done more seasons. :(

I mean, Idk what to say really, this series just made me happy. I've heard of the magazine but I haven't got my hands on it.. Sad panda.

Hey you have me and Midnight to thank for that, though prior to that you have my friend to thank for it because he got me into the series in a big way

AHH~~~! Thank ye! Will <3 I always saw her and Taranee as a couple if they weren't all so obviously strait. xD Except Ellyon and Cornelia. Those two have chemistry xD I didn't think anyone else remebered/liked this show. :3

I remember this show. It was amazing and I really loved it. My cousins and I used to watch this together, good ol' days. My favourite was Will :D

Btw, W.I.T.C.H is better watched in Japanese. The opening song sounds much cooler and the seiyuus are amazing. It's not like I'm saying the original voices are not good, it's a tie between English and Japanese Dubbed for me Wink

Said friend is here. I pretty much signed up specifically to comment on this thread.

Anyway, yeah--I was introduced via the TV show, which I think is better in the second season, but the first is good in its own way. W.I.T.C.H. Season 1 is pretty much Buffy mashed up with Usagi (they actually threw in a background cameo of Usagi in the school a few times). Even the overarching plot is similar. The dialogue is quirky and hilarious (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/W.I.T.C.H._(TV_series) some quotes--although the voice acting and context really sell them), more so in season 1. Season 2 brings the action, though, filled with flying characters fighting and lots of Xanatos gambits all over the place (the Weisman influence). The downside is that Caleb isn't constantly being awesome in it like he is in Season 1 (where he runs across an enemy's whip and kicks them in the face, does a snowboarding dropkick, outwits and evades dozens of enemy soldiers, saves the day by LITERALLY USING THE POWER OF ROCK AND ROLL, etc).

There's also lots of subtle adult humor. some of which I'm surprised slipped in. Plus season 2 features character death, necromancy, a frame job where the main characters are suspected of killing a friend and burying her in her own basement, and other stuff I really don't want to spoil.

As for my favorite...I'd say it's a toss up between Will and Irma. Will as a character overall, Irma for being hilarious. Arguably Cornelia has some of the best lines in the show, though (especially her funny yet cruel lines to her sister, like "I'll shave your bear!" and

"If you do ANYTHING to disturb my sleep, I'll personally drop kick you into the wolf pit at the zoo!"
Cornelia's sister: "You're mean!"
"I'm not mean. WOLVES are mean. GO!"

Actually, pretty much all of A Service to the Community is gold, including Caleb's frustrated pleas of common sense that go entirely ignored, the girls kicking their own teacher's ass with magic, the subsequent cover up, etc.

However, skip the episode Framed. Or watch it once for Irma kicking ass and the randomness and never again. It's one of the worst episodes, which is ironic because it was actually one of the most faithful episodes.

EDIT: Here's a site that has most of season 1 in good quality. They used to have Season 2, but I can't seem to find it- http://hirvine.com/toon/?W.I.T.C.H.
