It begins with a kiss! Yamada isn't the ideal student,Urara is, but this comes at the cost of friendship and a fun school life, then as chance would have it, they kiss, and awaken to find that they've swapped bodies. Their confusion as to why this has happened, doesn't stop them from taking advantage of the situation. Yamada has a strong sense of justice, and while he plods his way through the ensuing events, he actually ends up helping Urara. She at first keeps him from failing school, but as their bond grows, she too changes Yamada's life for the better. This series is just as much about developing relationships, and growing, as it is about the silly antics that happen when you find yourself in someone else's body. Each character brings their own strengths to situations that they barely understand. There is a lot of body swapping (and it does get more outrageous as the series continues), but the art always makes it clear which person is in which body through things like character quirks (ex. Urara is usually reading something). The artist really plays up the emotions involved with this as well, switching from serious to absolutely silly expressions and actions as needed. There is a lot of maze-gaze fanservice, and yet, because of the context, even we women find it amusing; as a humourous device it is quite effective (the male body is also a target at times). This is just the first of the witches, and with more to come, the series has the potential to continue refreshing itself, exploring new gags, and building new relationships.
