Honey’s Highlights

Cuuuuuuuuuute! This looks almost like Harry Potter but in magical girl form! I cannot wait for this!

Nothing wrong with a bunch of cute girls, doing cute things, while using magic I suppose. I am sure I can add this to my list.

Little Witch Academia kinda reminds me of Tweeny Witches, Majokko Shimai Yoyo to Nene, and Cardcaptor Sakura. It's so cute!

Oh this is that series that did really well as an OVA and had a movie last year. I remember it now. This should be good then!

Synopsis

A full-length television anime series based on the Little Witch Academia movies.

After seeing a show put on by the Witch Shiny Chariot, Akko became obsessed with magic at a young age. Now, she’s enrolled in a traditional European school famous for raising witches - Luna Nova Magical Academy! However, never mind riding a broom, she can’t even sit through a class without causing an uproar. What adventures will Akko and friends have in the television anime? Details to be announced soon!

Three Episode Impression

Overwhelmingly bouncy and colourful, once you start Little Witch Academia, it's hard to tear your eyes away. Like they did with Kill La Kill, Trigger has given Little Witch Academia a really distinctive look, that mixes Japanese and Western art to make a very bright and expressive style of their own. This really helps to bring the magical world of Little Witch Academia to life, and with each episode so far housing its own self-contained story, the world building has been both fast and exciting. Main girl Atsuko is so stupid sometimes you do kind of want to slap her and tell her to calm down, but without her excitement the show would certainly be less wacky than it is now, so this is perhaps a necessary evil. Her friends Sucy and Lotte provide a good balance to her eccentricity, with both of them being much more sensible and yet very, very different people. The question now is, where are they going with this? Everything so far has, at most, vaguely hinted at an overarching plot, so now it's a question of when is that plot going to start actually kicking in. At 25 episodes, though, in all fairness Little Witch Academia has plenty of time to mess around before getting serious. So far, it's proven to be a very unique series, that is difficult not to enjoy.
