In Episode 6, titled ‘The Duke, Alice, and a Night in the Witches’ World,’ Duke and Alice went to the witches’ Sabbath searching for the witch that cursed him and hoping to get some answers.
Cuff and Zain took the duo to the witches’ Sabbath earlier in the episode by creating a teleportation portal. Duke was surprised to learn that the much-hyped witches’ Sabbath lasted only 5 minutes.
Alice spotted the witch she met earlier at the town festival. Daleth told her that she is acquainted with her mother and met her when she was a child.
The witch also revealed that the witch Duke is looking for is dead and the curse she put on him is so strong that any ordinary witch cannot break it. She asked him to give up on hoping to break the curse.
Duke got depressed but was determined to break the curse one day so he can go back home and have dinner with everyone else.
We bring you the latest episode updates for this anime.
Episode 7 Preview & Speculation
The way Daleth told Alice that she was just an acquaintance of her mother raises the question of why Alice’s mother would be acquainted with a witch.
Moreover, it looked like Daleth was hiding something. She told Duke that she despises the witch who put a curse on him but didn’t disclose the reason. Daleth is a very difficult person to predict.
The black cat showing up again and again around Duke and Alice further indicates that it is somehow related to the witch. As, black cats symbolize witchcraft and other such practices usually, especially in medieval settings.
Duke wants to break the curse so he can go back home and meet his mother, but it looks like even if the curse breaks, his mother probably won’t accept him, which raises the question as to why she hates her son.
We hope to get answers to our questions in the next episode.

Episode 6 Recap
Duke helps Alice by using his curse to kill the unnecessary plants in the conservatory. That night, a cat appears in the mansion and steals Alice’s gown while she showers. Duke finds the cat, but the gown is already ripped into pieces.
Alice turns sad, as it was the gown that Duke liked on her. Reluctantly, she wears the maid’s uniform. Meanwhile, Cuff and Zain show up at the door to escort Duke to the Witches’ Sabbath. They give them the robes to conceal their human stench.
Zain creates a portal with his magic powers, and the four head to the gathering. At the meeting, the head witch takes the attendance and spots two new figures. Cuff tells everyone that they are Zain’s and her kids.
After the witch finishes taking attendance, she dismisses the gathering, surprising Duke that the Sabbath turns out to be an executive meeting lasting only 5 minutes.
Later, a friend of Zain asks him if what Cuff said is true. When Cuff says that it’s true, he insults her by asking Zain why he would mate with a half-witch. Zain turns furious and makes him apologize to Cuff.
Alice spots witch Daleth, the Sabbath leader, whom she met at the town festival and is surprised on learning that she remembers her. Daleth tells her that she was an acquaintance of her mother.
Duke joins in and asks about the witch who put a curse on him. Daleth tells him that the witch he is talking about is long dead and asks him to give up on the hope of breaking the curse.
Daleth burns Duke’s robe, forcing them to run away. Later, Cuff calls Duke her friend, which makes him happy. Despite the bad news about his curse Duke is determined to break his curse.
