Atsuko Kagari is an ordinary girl who joins the renowned witch academy for witch girls, Luna Nova Academy. When she was younger, she went to Magical Festa, a magic show hosted by a witch named Shiny Chariot. Atsuko was so mesmerized and inspired by Shiny Chariot's performance that she dreamed to someday be a "cool" witch like her.

A small preamble - in my opinion "Little Witch Academia" already deserves praise for being an anime deviating from the norm, a piece of art that indicates hope for the revitalization of the whole anime industry. And even more so, if we keep in mind that the original story (short film) was released 2013 as part of the 'Young Animator Training Project's Anime Mirai' project, its second movie was entirely realized due to crowd funding, both attempting to showcase an exceptional, magical fairy tale of a young girl, striving to become a great witch.

Little Witch Academy is way too overrated. OVA and movies were good but this series is just weak compared to those.. plot is slow and filled with plotholes., most characters have only 1 aspect that describes them and episode endings and reveals are all very pretictable and cliche.

Also, episodes lack proper build up for their reveals (f.e in 5th episode attack of dragons came from where, main dragon being harmless buisnessman came from no where, school being in debt and owning money to dragon came from no where, debt being scam came from no where, Diana knowing ancient dragonese came from no where.. pretty read more

(DISCLAIMER: Please do mind about my English grammar and I really do apologize, thank you.)

Little Witch Academia is one of the great example of magical anime which led us to remind what it really like, although I got hesitated from the interest of the plot summary. Speaking of, what I understand was that the fans were saying the plot is slow but rather than this. I still really enjoy it and usually had good laugh.
The fans had noticed that Little Witch Academia is similar/like Harry Potter BUT I personally do not accepted the word 'Like', I can say it reminds you of/similar to Harry Potter read more

This is my first review, I hope it's helpful! This review was written after 6 episodes have aired, on 2/18/2017. I will update this review as my thoughts on the series develop more thoroughly.

TL;DR: The show so far has been pretty good so far, and I think people should give the show a chance. It's been episodic so far, so if you are a fan of episodic anime, you will probably enjoy this. If you aren't a fan of episodic anime, I definitely recommend you give the format a chance. I don't think Trigger will let you down come the end of the series, for read more
