A Childhood fantasy
5 March 2005 | by (Z'Ha'Dum) – See all my reviews

The English title is known as Jack and the Witch.

I remember seeing this many years ago as a child, so my recollection of it is not up to date. What I do remember was a very captivating story. The basic story is a young Witch lures a boy into a trap so that an older witch may turn him into a harpy, to add to her number of children and animals turned into harpies. Jack escapes this and a few other close calls and ends up rescuing the young witch who was sent to the ice caves for her failures. Together they go to defeat the Witch.

The animation is very dated, considering it was made in 1967 this is understandable. Back then Japanese animation wasn't quite the fare we know it as today but I imagine this was quality work at the time. It was enough to keep me watching it to the end. It is available on DVD only in Japan. And a while ago there was talk of an English release in the USA but it fell through. So finding it today is next to impossible, although you might be able to dig up a bootleg if you know where to look.
