Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia (TV) Recommendations
Both by TRIGGER, storyboarded by Hiroyuki Imaishi and animated by You Yamashiro. Has striking similarities in animation, editing, as well as general art direction and both shares TRIGGER's wit, quick cuts, and clever humor. Both involves an underdog story with a female lead centered in an academy specialized in the peculiar (school uniform ability enforcement and witchcraft/wizardry) in which the main villain/conflict becomes apparent starting the latter half of the season.
while kill la kill might be a lot more fanservice-ey, the over the top fun of both series is very reminiscent of each other. I can't recommend either enough, especially if you watched and enjoyed the other.
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
So far after watching Episode one it seems more like a Female Shonen
If you want an amazing action anime that is filled with nonsense, both are good choices. You will find :
- An over-the-top animation made by Studio Trigger and Hiroyuki Imaishi.
- An almost entirely female cast
- Action scenes involving the use of magic power
- School Environment
- Endearing and funny characters
Be aware that Kill La Kill is not an all-public anime like Little Witch Academia and contains lots of gore and ecchi elements.
Now hear me out. You may be thinking to yourself, "How in the world is Kill la Kill similar to Little Witch Academia?". The general premises for these two shows are wildly different. One is about a girl with a girl scissor looking for her father's murder and the other is a girl whose dream is to learn magic so she can be like her childhood hero. The reason that I would recommend this show if you liked Kill la Kill is that both were made by Trigger studio. Trigger has a distinct animation that I really enjoyed that is found in both of these
