* MotherNatureFatherScience / ScienceVsMagic: The witches live in a lush valley surrounded by nature while the wizards (who have lost the ability to use magic, save for a few very old outcasts) live in an underground high-tech fortress. Appropriately they used to all live together, but then the men were taken over by what amounted to warlike scientists.

In modern day Tokyo, we meet Arusu, a 10 year old girl who has a thing for the occult and is especially obsessed with witches and witchcraft, thanks to a book given to her years ago by her DisappearedDad. When some bullies try to steal her book, a mishap sends her falling (literally) into the world of the witches. Almost immediately, she meets Sheila and Eva, two apprentice witches who are close to her age.

'''Tweeny Witches''' [-(Japanese Title: 魔法少女隊アルス – ''Maho Shôjo Tai Arusu'')-] is a 2004 anime by Creator/Studio4C, and is certainly one of the weirder takes on the fairy tale genre.

In modern-day Tokyo, we meet Arusu, a 10-year-old girl who has a thing for the occult and is especially obsessed with witches and witchcraft, thanks to a book given to her years ago by her DisappearedDad. When some bullies try to steal her book, a mishap sends her falling (literally) into the world of the witches. Almost immediately, she meets Sheila and Eva, two apprentice witches who are close to her age.

Delighted as she is to be in the Witching World, Arusu is less than delighted at how their society is run. Everyone is either miserable or scared, certainly not overjoyed at the reality of magic, whereas she believes magic should be used to make people happy. More disturbing to her is how the witches capture sprites (or fairies) and keep them behind bars for their use in spells. When she releases all the captive sprites back into the wild, the Elder Witch punishes Sheila and Eva with the Curse Of Eternal Youth, leaving Arusu duty-bound to become an apprentice witch and join them on their quest to recapture the sprites and break her new friends' curse.

As the series continues, Arusu becomes more familiar with magic and her new friends. She also learns more about her new world and its extremely dark underbelly, one which seems intent on tearing everything apart, and is also very interested in that book of hers…
