Pretty much the same idea, imagine BnHA but it's all girls and it takes place in Hogwarts. The protagonists are very similar to each other, and both are very good series!!

Little witch academia is the truly the fulfillment of the spirit of kiki's delivery service into a full tv series. The main parallel is that both have a young female protagonist who are striving to become witches. The difference is that the tone and style. Kiki follows the convention of ghibli's, which is a beautiful presentation with a sweet and laid back story. While little witch academia wholly subscribes to the gainax/trigger convention which is bombastic action, slick animation and a particular comedy.

Animation is flawless, characters are perfect and lovable, they just grow on you so fast! Story is heart warming and light hearted. I felt the same thrill watching it as I did with Cardcaptor Sakura when i was a little girl.
Also, some staff members that are working on LWA are also Cardcaptor Sakura fans.

1 - Same Studio
2 - Similar Animation
3 - Takes Place in a School Setting
4 - A most of the Kill La Kill Dub Cast voice some of the same Characters for the English dub
5 - Similar Humor although Kill la Kill can be Kind of Ecchi and it seems like Little Witch Academia's Humor is more PG rated)
6 - Female Protagonist
Simmilar Characters Akko (LWA) is similar to Ryuko (KLK) and Lotte (LWA) is Simmilar to Mako (KLK).

I will edit more or less as the series continues

They both have very stylized and "good" animation, depending on your outlook.
They both are episodic anime, with a few episodes sprinkled in to advance the main conflict, which has been hard to pin down as to what that is.
Both have their own sort of actions scenes, with LWA's being the magic exhibitions and Pokemon S&M's being the pokemon battles.(Also lol S&M)
They both appeal to children, and as such have characters and references that reflect this target audience.(That won't stop a few older people from enjoying it though)
My final and weakest point is that they are both very much  read more

Made by the same studio. LWA has a cameo and is referenced in SPL.

About Human Girls learning how to be witches, (in Little witch academia it is only one human). Both are colorfull, funny and both have very good characters, animation and music.
Ojamajo Doremi is mahou shoujo style.

The two may seem like nothing alike and each was made quite a time from each other but when I watch little witch, I get reminded of and get the vibes of metropolis.

The animation in metropolis is similar to little witch's and it would be in my eyes like a more serious version of little witch. Where metropolis is about tackling the the differences between classes of both people and robots, Little witch academia is how Akko deals with the bulling against her for not being a natural magic user.

Both are enjoyable with their interesting characters, settings and plot  read more

Both focus on the topic of witch craft with a bunch of humour thrown in as well.
