Little Witch Academia (TV), Mary to Majo no Hana Recommendations
Both anime revolve around young girls with magic powers that visit a witch school. The character interactions and overall tone of the stories feel similar and both are very heartwarming. Both remind me of a shoujo version of Harry Potter.
If you were wondering what it would be like if Mary enrolled at and stayed in the witching academy, you will love Little Witch Academia.
Both have a similar concept of the magic school and witchcraft itself. Both heroes go through all the difficulties to achieve their dreams, while they gradually change, especially their characters. Also, in the beginning, the heroines have the traits of curiosity and sometimes of selfishness. And not the most interesting part: both animes have a similar soundtrack.
The main themes are adventure, fantasy and magic, with comedy and friendship in both as well.
Both anime exist in similar worlds, where magic exists but is a secret from the rest of the world.
The main characters are clumsy but earnest young girls, who become witches and mature when faced with difficulties they must overcome. In Little Witch Academia, Akko (the main character) already aspired to become a witch, whereas for Mary, in Mary to Majo no Hana, it was more of a strike of fate. However for both characters the experiences they have as witches encourages them to become stronger, braver and more considerate.
