Synopsis

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. This young and impressionable Atsuko takes Shiny Chariot's words as her own motto: "Never forget, a believing heart is your magic.“ As part of a class, Atsuko and her classmates go into a labyrinth under the Tower of Luna Nova.

If any fans of the original Little Witch Academia film or fans of its sequel The Enchanted Parade are reading this review and are worried about this TV adaptation holding up to the standard of its progenitors, allow me to lay your fears to rest. Little Witch Academia TV is GREAT. It is a worthy successor in every way to the movies that generated so much interest, but at the same time no knowledge of the two films is necessary to enjoy this new TV anime. The show is fun, light, and heartwarming, and I will confidently recommend it to anyone who is even slightly read more

Little Witch Academy is way too over rated. 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.. read more

After the great reception of the original Little Witch Academia OVA and some time later, the Little Witch Academia movie, we are finally greated with a full length, 25 episode, tv show, and boy if it isn't a great time.

Keep in mind that I've yet only seen 5 episodes of the 25 planned ones my opinions and thoughts on the show might change, and if so I will also update this review if seen necessary.

Story: 7 (Good)

If anything, the story of Little Witch Academia feels like a Harry Potter fanfic/spin-off, and that's not at all a bad thing. The way this show handles its plot read more

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.
