【story】

A red-haired woman (Shelina Munaf) who is being chased by a witch leaves her baby in a “children’s home” and disappears. The baby, named “Ayatsuru”, is named “Aya” by her kindergarten teacher, and grows into a strong girl who is good at “manipulating” the minds of adults. One day when Arya (Koji Hirasawa) turned 10, she was taken in by Bella Yaga (Shinobu Terashima) and Mandrake (Etsushi Toyokawa), who visited a “children’s home”. When Arya learns that Bella Yaga is her witch, she asks to be taught her magic in exchange for helping her.

However, Bella Yaga only bullies Arya and shows no signs of teaching her magic. Arya, angry that things don’t go her way, tries to run away from the house, but the door disappears due to magic and she can’t find Bella Yaga and Mandrake’s room. Reluctantly, Arya decided to have fun playing the cassette tapes she had from her childhood on the radio and cassette player in her room. Then, Bella Yaga’s “familiar” black cat Thomas (Gaku Hamada) appears, and Arya and Thomas become close friends.
One night, guided by Thomas, Arya sneaks into Bela Yaga’s workshop and succeeds in creating a “spell that protects herself from all kinds of magic” written in a magic book. Arya and Thomas try to use their magical powers to fight back against Bella Yaga, but…!
