(マジカルウィッチーズ Majikaru Wicchīzu
) is a series of magic book-shaped virtual pets
released by Bandai
in 1998. They are collectively referred to as the "Four Elements Communication Books". Watanabe Kenji
was involved in the character design
and as a consequence, some elements from the series were incorporated into the Digimon franchise, in particular Witchelny, the main setting of Magical Witches
, which was adapted into being an alternate Digital World
and the magic used by its inhabitants as being "advanced programming languages".
In the Witchelny of Magical Witches, there are four clans of witches that each represent one of the four elements used in alchemy. Witchmon's Special Moves are references to two of these clans. Wizarmon (X-Antibody)'s cape depicts the element marks of these clans.
