Nozomi Witches (のぞみ♡ウィッチィズ?, Nozomi Uicchizu), sometimes also called Bewitching Nozomi, is a manga series by Toshio Nobe which was adapted into a three episode anime OVA series in 1992. Because of similarities with Mitsuru Adachi's style, and the fact that the OVA adaptation was made by the team that worked on several of his anime adaptations, Nozomi Witches is sometimes mistakenly attributed as one of Adachi's works.


Nozomi is a beautiful former actress who moves back to Japan from New Zealand. Upon arriving, she meets her fellow high school student neighbor Ryōtarō Shiba, and decides he needs to join the high school boxing club.
