Synopsis

Little Witch Academia is one of the four anime works that each received 38 million yen (about US$480,000) from the "2012 Young Animator Training Project." Just like in 2010 and 2011, the animation labor group received 214.5 million yen (US$2.65 million) from the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs, and it distributed most of those funds to studios who train young animators on-the-job.

“Never forget, a believing heart is your magic.” - Shiny Chariot

Why do I watch anime? To take me to another world: a world where possibilities are endless, a world where the surreal can take the place of the real, a world where imagination rules!

Little Witch Academia reminded me of this reason when it swept me up and brought me back to my childhood, when I believed I could go to a school and learn how to twist reality with the flick of a wand.

Much like the creator of this little gold nugget, I'll be keeping this review short, but sweet.

Aside from Ryo, which I can't seem to find anywhere (if you happen to know a site, a link would be very helpful), I've seen all of the Anime Mirai 2013 films. All 4 are about half-an-hour long, so they're pretty concise with their story. Death Billiards is pretty good, but it feels a bit pretentious, shoving a little philosophical question down your throat but not really making you think that much. Arve Rezzle feels like the pilot to a full series, and as such offers very little closure, read more

Story about young witches, same atmosphere, and the main character has a smiliar personality. Both are very fun to watch! :)
The corresponding theme for both of these are... witches!

The two anime movies, one being two hours and the other 30 minutes, are set in the ordinary world. Those ordinary worlds though presents magic to witchcraft, opening up the witch presence in the world. The stories follow two young girls who decides to take witchcraft and, as the movies progress on, they start to learn different things in both witch aspect and the experience of independence and such. The main difference is that Kiki goes delivering things whilst she sets in town, and Kagari goes to a witch academy, going towards her dreams.

'Kiki's Delivery Service' is more of a SoL than 'Witch Academy', but either way they both share a really magical atmosphere being both fun and lovely; they have extremely delicious and fluent animation, being practical in the MC's movements on the brooms especially, and the OST brings out the magical feeling even more. If you really enjoyed the movie feel of one of the shows whilst loving the whole witch aspect, then you'll definitely enjoy the other.
