It has been announced via the official Twitter that Little Witch Academia will receive a TV anime series. The president of studio Trigger, Masahiko Otsuka, mentioned that each episode will be standard length for the 30 minute timeslot. You Yoshinari will return as the director of the series.

Little Witch Academia previously received two movies produced by studio Trigger.

Great to see LWA getting expanded! I wonder if it's gonna start fresh or continue from the movies.

Well then, talk about some unexpected good news. Good luck Trigger, hopefully you keep the simplicity and some of the production values of the original two movies which is what made them so charming and refreshing to watch.

Hype hype hype

I don't think it will get 12 episodes, since each episode will be 30 minutes long. Well, we will see

The part about 30 minutes really excites me. Hope it can capture the excitement of the first movie.

Wow, maybe it's time to watch the movies before I start watching this.
And 30 minutes per episode? That's too long for a TV series!

I suppose I should get around to watching the 2 movies then.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Well, they failed, like, twice (Kiznaiver, That other LN crap no one talks about anymore) but they did bring back Inferno Cop in Luluco, saving desolate parts of the world so I'm confident with this one.

Kiznaiver is my least favorite from Trigger, even the shorter form anime Space Patrol Luluco is better than that garbage.

I'm guessing it will air on some premium channel to allow a 30-minute runtime?

I was wondering when this was going to happen.
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

IM NOT AN ELITIST

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

This news is EXCELLENT. With how adorable the 1st short film was and how successful the kickstarted sequel turned out, it would have been a huge wasted opportunity not to continue with the IP in some way. And what better way than with a full series??
SO EXCITED.

Wouldn't exactly call Kill la kill good, as much as it was entertaining in the beginning, its second half was a poorly executed mess.
