This looks amazing!

Looks like there ignoring the ova's. And or compressing them to fit into an episode or two. Maybe happening between an episode. We get a different show that inspires her to be a witch by Shiny Chariot. As well as Akko's first days and subsequent adventures with her new friends. Shiny's wand does end up in Akko's hands so thats still a thing. Which would change how she got it somewhat.

Either way, it is an adaptation so its going to be different. This is still going to be one hell of an anime to watch. Trigger is an amazing group.

It looks amazing! I'm glad they're restarting the story instead of continuing from the OVA's. Even if they have to retell parts of it, it looks like it'll go down a different route.
I don't exist. But, maybe, I once did.

Hey look, something that's actually good to look forward to. Hope they keep the story relatively simple and lighthearted like the OVAs.

Yes! Another anime to binge watch on Netflix xD.. I watched the first two movies on Netflix and it was surprisingly a great watch. Wish it could have been longer but now my wish is going to be granted.

Just marathoned through the two movies, and holy molly is this exciting. It kinda reminds me of the western cartoon animation like Disney rather than a Japanese anime.

PV looks decent, and from it the show looks like it's going to in the same vein as the OVAs.

Now all trigger has to do is not fock up....

Tell you what, I'll go into this assuming they do somehow fock it up, so if they do, I'll have been right, and if not, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Trigger is an overrated studio. The only good show they made was Kill La Kill and two short little witch academia movie. All the others shows were shit or below average. Kiznaiver was huge disappointment
