Q: What is a Witch anime?
A: These anime feature witches: magic users who often possess classic traits such as pointy hats, flying brooms, and black cat familiars. Some are protagonists looking to improve their craft, have adventures, or save the world; others might be tricksters or outright villains who cause suffering and misfortune for others.
Q: Did the Gypsies come from India?
A: On a more positive note, the author was ahead of his time in stating that gypsies emigrated from India, and in his hypothesis that gypsy culture may have preserved a pre-Aryan set of Indian beliefs and customs, including those related to witchcraft, shamanism, and sorcery.)
Q: Why are gypsies associated with sorcery?
A: As their peculiar perfume is the chief association with spices, so sorcery is allied in every memory to gypsies.
Q: Is it appropriate to remind people of the Gypsy Holocaust?
A: It is probably not altogether inappropriate to remind ourselves that such prejudice toward gypsies contributed to the Gypsy Holocaust, during which Nazis practiced genocide against the Roma precisely as they did against Jews.
