After watching a magical show by Shiny Chariot the Witch when she was a little girl, Akko Kagari, a normal human being, dreamed to become a witch like her. To fulfill her dream, Akko successfully enrolled in Luna Nova Witch Academy. Even though Akko is an ordinary girl, she has the same motto as Shiny Chariot: “Never forget, a believing heart is your magic.“

First Impression

I never watch Little Witch Academia OVA so this first impression is a very first impression from me. The first thing i noticed while I’m watching it was “This is looks like a sunday morning kids cartoon”. And also, the wizarding theme is very similar with Harry Potter’s first years. I think this will be a good family show. So you can watch it with your children, little brother/sister, cousin, nephew/niece or even your grandchild. To be noted because fans these days really like 3d9y shows, I believe this show is relatively family-friendly until, maybe, perhaps, the writers decided to introduce a Voldemort in the series.
