The time is pre-World War II and the setting is a European-like imaginary world. A large-scale war erupts and bloody battles are taking place throughout the world. Eylstadt is a small country that lacks a strong military force and natural resources. Finé, who is the crown queen of Eylstadt, decides to use a secret weapon against larger countries, in a time where battling against larger countries was unthinkable. The secret weapon is a witch named Izetta, who uses her magical force to fight the war. The young witch Izetta (who is the same age as Finé) is the last survivor of her kind, and is notable for her burning red hair.

Izetta uses her enormous magical power to crash fighter planes and blow up tanks. As Eylstadt starts to win battle by battle with Izetta, people around the world start to call her “Eylstadt’s Red Witch”. However, there were reasons why witches were hidden throughout the history. Izetta’s magic has a lot of dark secrets. Her forbidden power has opened up the door of hope and destruction. This is a story of a queen who wants to save her country and a young witch who fights for her best friend and people.
