Thus, the story of Earwig And The Witch begins here.
Erica Meets The Witch
Bella Yaga and Mandrake adopt Erica against her wishes. Since Erica didn’t want to be adopted by anyone ever, she throws tantrums every time. However, she lights up when Bella reveals to her that she’s a witch. In addition, Bella also tells Erica that her real name is Earwig. Moreover, they make a deal that Bella would be teaching Erica how to use magic. In return, Erica would be helping with the household chores and giving an extra hand at the magical experiments.
Nevertheless, things don’t go as planned. Bella denies Erica each time she asks to learn magic from her. Thus, Erica makes an escape plan and turns the House into a chaotic field of fire. On the other hand, Erica’s biological mother is on her way to bring her back.
Let’s see how the story seeks the attention of anime fans globally. Since Netflix has put its faith in every Studio Ghibli movie, we hope this one also stands up to everyone’s expectations.
