Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo, also known as Yamada and The 7 Witches is a Manga series created by Yoshikawa Miki that later received anime adaptation and live action series. The manga has finished on the February 2017 (as I remembered). This manga has it’s own special place to me.
Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo was the first ever Manga that I had finished. Read from the beginning to the last chapters, it was really-really a great time I really enjoyed it, especially the comedy. And since then, I became fell in love with Manga.
I mean Manga is so different with comics, especially the western comics like from USA. Manga has deepness in the story and all the characters is unique with their flashing personalities.
However, to the last chapters I read there’s still some unanswered question in Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo manga. Like what is the ‘witch killer’, the power the main character Yamada have or what is Yamada’s wish in his school life in the first place so he can had the witch power.
Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo: The Witch Killer
As we know in the Manga, Witch Killer is a special power, even compared to the other 7 witches power. There are 2 powers known as the witch killer, it is the Copy Power and Cut (Stealing) Power. The student who has Witch Killer power is the only ones besides the witches and Akashic Recorder who cannot be affected by witch powers.
The Copy Power holder can copy another witch power, while the Cut Power can steal another witch power. Of course the power is used with same way as the witches, it is that through kissing.
Yamada himself had the Copy Power, while the Cut or Stealing Power was owned by Tamaki the student council that later the power moved to Igarashi, Yamada’s best friend since middle school.
There aren’t many explanation of the witch killer itself, even when Yamada and co had discovered the legend of 7 witches old notes.
Why Yamada get his witch killer power
As stated in the Manga, that the witch power only exist on students who has their worries or problem over their life.
So why was Yamada had his witch killer power? What was his worries or his wish on his school life? Until the last chapters I didn’t grasp the answer yet.
Well my own theory got like this: We know that Shiraishi was the original witches, the one who marked the beginning and the end of witch powers. Her wish before she became the original witch was that She wants to be with Yamada. So Yamada’s power exist because Shiraishi’s wish herself. Got what I mean?
Because Yamada had the witch killer power, he cannot be affected by witches powers. Even the 7th witch power, the memory wipe could not affected him made him never forget about Shiraishi even through the second witch war.
Using his copy power, Yamada become the ‘main weapon’ of the supernatural study group to investigate witch powers. In the group, Shiraishi and Yamada meet and spent a lot of time, just like Shiraishi’s wish.
Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo: The Akashic Recorder
One thing that appeared at the latest arcs of Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo Manga, it was The Akashic Recorder. The Akashic Recorder appeared to be the Yamada’s class representative.
Akashic Recorder is the only one outside of witches and witch killers that could not be affected by the witches powers. She is had a task to record all events happened on the school involving all witches activities.
The legend of 7 witches old note from years ago Yamada and co was found seems to be created by the Akashic Recorder at that generations.
My theory on Akashic Recorder is that she is choosen by the student council when the student council are about create the witch powers. They need an Akashic Recorder to pass the witches information through generations.
In the first time it was the student council that has authority and information about creating the witches power. So I think when they made Shirashi as the original witch, they also choosed someone to be the Akashic Recorder, whose is the class representative.
