Pseudo witches are a type of witch unique to the Kazumi Magica manga. They are actually human women that are implanted with a fake Grief Seed called an "evil nut". When they are defeated, the evil nut separates from the woman, much like when a witch drops a grief seed. Unlike regular witches, the women return to normal after they are defeated. They appear to lose their memory of the events that occurred while they are under the evil nut's influence, similar to those affected by a witch's kiss. This is due to Umika Misaki tampering and erasing their memories of the events.
