Little Witch Academia is a coming of age magical girl fantasy anime series made in January 2017 that's based off a duo-logy of short films from 2013-2015.


Little Witch Academia is about a girl named Atsuko Kagari (Akko for short). When she was young, she saw Shiny Chariot perform and it made her want to be a witch. Years later, she moves to a new town where he enrolls at Luna Nova where she later then discovers the Shiny Rod in a forest while trying to get to Luna Nova, and meets and shares a room at Lotte and Sucy which she instantly becomes best friends with. Akko doesn't have the best grades at her school. Later on, she found that she had to unlock 7 words on her wand, The Shiny Rod.

Why It Rocks

  1. It has amazing animation.
  2. Great opening and ending song.
  3. It once made a parody of Twilight with a book called Night Fall.
  4. Great art style.
  5. Has some funny moments.
  6. Characters are well developed and thought out. A notable example is the main protagonist Akko, as she goes from an amateur to a professional.
  7. The show doesn't rely on any fan-service or filler episodes, a recurring problem with many modern anime shows.
  8. It has a diverse main cast of characters from different countries.

Bad Qualities

  1. It's somewhat short-lived. (2 seasons of 25 episodes)
  2. If there's an episode dedicated to Lotte, Sucy, Amanda, Constanze, and Diana, (2 episodes for her) then how come there's no episode dedicated to Jasminka?
  3. Akko constantly getting into trouble can get annoying, until she improved as the series progress.
  4. It got quite inappropriate for it's TV-Y7 rating at times. Like in the episode Chariot and Croix( renamed to The Things We Said Today on Netflix ), the word sh** was heard, not joking (altrough Japan has different standards for age ratings).
