Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina Episode 10: Stardust and Midnight

With this episode, Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina has overtaken the English release of the light novels. I know that because the story we have adapted for this particular episode is one that I am not familiar with.
It also happens to be one that has very little focus on Elaina; in fact, she is barely in the episode. Instead, we get a peek into the past of Fran and Sheila.

Sheila, Fran and their teacher

Sheila and Fran meet for the first time

So in this anime called Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina, we have almost no Elaina to speak of this time around. This story is purely about how Fran and Sheila first met, and the event that managed to bring them closer together.

The teacher volunteers her apprentices for the request

From the moment they first met, Fran and Sheila did not get along at all. They’d always argue, and their teacher would offer to meet them in the middle – generally with ideas that seemed kind of arbitrary compared to what they were actually arguing about.
This episode takes place in a town where a gang has been targeting mages, and it ends up being left to Fran and Sheila to do something about it.

Seems Sheila and Fran take a very similar approach to their objective

The tone of this episode is on the lighter side; certainly nowhere as dark as the previous one. I imagine people may be more willing to discuss this episode.
It is a fun episode, though it isn’t made apparent until the end how relevant it is to the story. It is nice knowing a bit more about Fran and Sheila, but this is called The Journey of Elaina.

Still fun to see Fran and Sheila unleash their magic, though. A good episode, and one that features something that is little more than a cameo from the series’ main protagonist…
Well, we’ll have more from Elaina next time. Seems like Saya will be involved, too, which is also nice.
I think there’s only a couple of episodes left, so perhaps we’ll be getting a two-parter to wrap up this series. We shall see in due course.

    Nice to learn more about Fran, Sheila and Mama Nike.

    We knew Sheila’s sexy but now we know how sexy.

    There are so many things connecting Elaina and Saya together that if the LN or Manga doesn’t end with the two as retired wives I’ll be disappointed.
