Little Witch Academia
Volume 1


When Atsuko "Akko" Kagari was a little girl, she attended the Magical Festa magic show hosted by the witch Shiny Chariot. Ever since then, she has dreamed of also becoming a witch by enrolling at Luna Nova, the academy her idol attended. Akko befriends two fellow witches—Lotte Yansson and Sucy Manbavaran—who she believes will share in her fantastical, magical school experience... However, although Luna Nova Academy is filled to the brim with magic and witches, it is not quite what she expected.

Seen as an inept, rebellious, and talentless witch, Akko struggles daily to prove she is worthy of her place at the academy. One day, an opportunity to demonstrate her merit presents itself—she must defeat an ancient dragon thought to be previously sealed. Can Akko emerge as the successful witch she desperately yearns to be?

If you're like me and watched the anime before, then you are sure to feel the same joy by reading the manga.

For those of you who haven't seen the series Little Witch Academia is a story about Akko and her adventures at Luna Nova, the school where she learns magic to be like and one day meet her idol, Chariot.
The manga is it a little short for the development of the characters to really shine, but it does an okay job in getting the gist across. That being said, I do enjoy all the characters and liked seeing their interactions throughout my reading.

Little Witch Academia is one of that anime that you finish and realise that it is one of the most 7.5/10 anime ever. But if you are like me and just fall in love with the characters, setting, art style, themes or anything else really and just feel like you need more, than this manga is for you. This 3 volume manga covers some of anime's most important first 12 episodes (Ep.1 - Starting Over / A New Beginning, ep. 5 - Pact of the Dragon / Luna Nova and the White Dragon, ep. 6 - The Fountain / The Fountain of Polaris etc.) What read more

When I finished the anime, I found that I enjoyed the first half significantly more because of how loose it was and how it focused less on the search for the words than on the interactions between the characters. This manga was basically exactly what I wanted it to be, as a bridge between the two parts of the series. This starts at the very beginning, and one or two other stories from the anime are also adapted, but most of them are one-and-done character pieces from before Akko learned the importance of the Shiny Rod's words. And they were just so slick! There's ones read more
