Directory: Characters → Angela Leon
|Voiced by (English)||
Angela Leon (アンジェラ・レオン, Anjera Reon) is the first real witch introduced in the series. She is nothing more than a kid witch who is not very good at magic, which is the reason Mifune is protecting her. Her animal theme seems to be chameleons due to her hat's appearance and the entrance of her castle. After Mifune was killed, Angela was taken into Shibusen.
She is later shown attending the witch's meeting alongside Mifune, something that greatly angers Eruka. Angela and Mifune were once allied to Arachne, though it was implied that if Mifune does not cooperate Angela will be hurt. One of the duties of Arachnophobia members is to play with her.
As Angela is not great at magic, due to her young age, she has yet to develop any offensive attacks.
- Flight: Angela is able to fly using a broom. She has not fully mastered the skill of braking, as she unfortunately rams Mifune while attempting to protect him.
- Hat tongue: Angela has some kind of connection with her hat, which can be seen extending a tongue, though it has not been shown using any useful purpose.
- Invisibility: The only magic Angela has been seen using, it is imperfect as one of her hands can be seen.
For a child, Angela is rather aggressive. She is able to pick up a sword and attack with an overhead swing (generally aimed at the head) and can do a rising front kick (generally aimed at the groin). Due to being underestimated and small, these attacks can succeed due to surprise, as they have in two instances against Black Star.
Main article: Mifune She and Mifune share a strong bond. Mifune, due to his liking for children took her in and acted as her guardian instead of killing her as per the orders of Marlon. She cares for Mifune and calls anyone that fights with him a bully (even if he started the fight).
Main article: Tsubaki Tsubaki is seen playing with Angela, acting as a sister (or even mother) figure.
Angela has shown great dislike towards the assassin, having seen him about to kill Mifune. She has also outsmarted him twice, once slicing his forehead with a samurai sword (making him bleed horribly) and a second time kicking him in the crotch when he burst through her wall. Although they both clearly dislike each other, Black Star spared her life, claiming that killing a kid would 'give him nightmares' like Mifune had pointed out when about to kill him.
She once lived in the Magic Castle Cinder. In the past, she was often being kidnapped by Mafia families. Mifune, who was working for the Mafia boss, Marlon, was sent to kill her but he betrayed his boss by 'kidnapping' her instead as to protect her.
Part in the Story
Angela was first seen when Black Star learned about her and went to kill her and Mifune, but seeing that she was just a child, he gave up killing her.
Operation: Capture Baba Yaga’s Castle
While infiltrating Baba Yaga’s Castle, the Shibusen team split up. Two members were ordered to play hide and seek with Angela and were told that if she started crying, they wouldn't be able to stop her. The couple went along and, despite seeing her only visible part, tried to maintain cover and ended up being hit in a very uncomfortable place by Angela.
Tying Things Up, and New Beginnings
After the conclusion of the battle at Baba Yaga's Castle and the demise of Mifune at the hands of Black☆Star, Angela is taken into Shibusen custody where Shinigami agrees to take her in since she is fairly young and the Sway of Magic has yet to develop in her. When Angela asks what happened to Mifune, the group are at a loss to answer her. Soul visits the wounded Black Star for this reason, informing him not to reveal what happened to Mifune, as Soul is afraid how she'll accept the news at her age.
I'm Gonna Be An Angel
While everyone else is training, Angela is playing with Fire and Thunder with the supervision of Tsubaki in front of Shibusen, while Harvar (who is sitting on the Shibusen steps), mentions that none of them have anything to do.
- Showing that she lacks both an actual mother or father (with Mifune acting only as a father-figure), this draws at least one of two conclusions: either that they were killed because they were witches, or that witches naturally separate from their parents at a young age. The latter would explain Kim's easy deviation from the Witch world and Medusa's contempt to Crona as her child. This may be a reference to the Miyazaki film Kiki's Delivery Service, where it is tradition for young witches coming of age to live on their own for at least a year.
