I have to admit that this special is better than flm because it can condense in less time, much more action than the movie. Really great designs, animations and soundtrack. Very beautiful backgrounds.

This is FANTASTIC!!!
Never thought such a simple generic concept would be so AMAZING! 9/10
This show reminded me of how a simple and old concept would be such a great work if executed well
It reminded me of Lord of the Ring (one of my favorite show in childhood) and the first few ep of Harry Porter.
Love it so much, and it definitely kick me in to follow the sequel show which I had actively avoiding last year as the generic synopsis, it might be one of the show last year but I missed the train...

Edit (30/1/18)
My doubt is not wrong, this show is best in this length.
I just finished the TV series, it has it's moments, and quite a few, but it also has lots of flaws. 7/10
The main reason is it didn't make me to believe in "magic" while this short, 24 minutes OVA able to do so.
I have still the movie to go, hope that it would be better than the TV series

Every magic cliche you can think of+ cute girls= this movie sadily it didn't have anything that made it unique otherwise it would have been much more entertaining. 5/10

The lack of the sea green color for magic and Sucy's more proactive personality felt so weird after watching this OVA and the 2017 TV series.

Good movie and the series is very different from the movie.

Akko never found Chariot's rod at that ruble and it didn't have those complete shining crystals from the series. But nonetheless I enjoyed it very much and it made me wish for the second season of the series.

Did anyone notice that the animators didn't draw Akko's pants when she was flying on the broom, thus avoiding pantsu shots?

I wonder if it was intentional

Obviously 'Little Witch Academy' is going to be a fun anime. I hope you will entertain me a lot.

Decent OVA that didn't leave me bored. Generic story and characters but that's not exactly a bad thing here since it was only 26 minutes.

Quality would likely decline if it was a series since it would become a vapid slice of nothing happens with cookie cutter characters.

Is it hypothetical or did you check the second release ? (or maybe the TV show)

Wow, that was incredible. I've seen little content from Trigger so far, but that had so much style and smooth, amazing animation crammed into 26 minutes. I loved Akko's range of facial animation, and she was a livelier and spunkier personality than I expected. Easily one of the best under half-hour anime titles I've ever seen.

It was pretty good. I watched it to decide if to watch the series or not, but it was better than I was thinking it would be, so I'll watch the series and the movie.

That was some nice quick light-hearted trigger fun. I'll watch that other 50 minute movie, but it isn't amazing enough to warrant me watching the 2017 tv series which apparently is subpar to this- probably because it'll drag with over 20 episodes. Just here for a quick dose of trigger action.

I didn't really like this as much as I thought I would, I feel like the Disney like music didn't fit the anime at all and kinda ruined it.

Also, this might be something different for people that only know anime, but if you have also watched a lot of western animation and are past the stage where you worship Disney and/or Miyazaki this will feel tired and cliched.

Probably won't watch the series.

Now, I understood why people say Sucy is best girl. One of the best works from Anime Mirai. Loved pretty much every single character and it seems like the teacher was the chariot. Also, those explosions were so beautiful. Yoh yoshinari is a fucking God. 8/10

This was quite good! It was very exciting to watch. I should've watched this years ago.

I'll soon be checking out the second movie, and then the series.
