Little Witch Academia EP 1 "A New Beginning"

That was a wild intro the Trio of Atsuko / Lotte / Sucy get trapped in Arcturus Forest instead of arriving at Luna Nova Academy but Aysuko finds her Shiny Chariot Rod and with the help of Ursula ( a teacher ) they escape .

This trio is trouble! Lotte / Sucy / Atsuko ( In fact they are put together and have a hard course to follow for being late!



Little Witch Academia EP 2

Very much liking this! A lot of the students mock Akko Shining Chariot but Lotte / Sucy take an interrest especially in Allo's ttrading cards she has collected.

A student Diana atempts to revie The Jennifer tree but the roots raise up with growths that she tries to destroy but Akko knows they are the chrysalides of the Pappiliodya, an extremely rare species of magical butterflies that brings good fortunate to those who see them. Akko stops Diana and uses her The Shining Chariot but speak the chant correcrly Diana tels her and the Magic Butterflies are released. Diana friends bring the teachers who credit Diana who tries to explain things but runs off when wont listen. Everybody is awed by the sight of the Pappiliodya

Akko so moe when she was young collecting the cards!



A nice job Akko



Even Diana now knows the Power of The Shining Chariot

Episode 3

This was a great episode, I love a good race episode.

Again they redo a OVA scene with the whole broom riding lesson, at least this time the professor push Akko off the cliff. And while Diana is nicer in the anime, it seems her friends have become meaner. I don't remember those 2 being this mean in the OVA or the movie, they cross the line of sneaking jerks to full on bullies. Someone needs to punch them in the face.

We meet Amanda, Constanze, and Jasminka, and our main trio know them, but not really friends with them yet, hopefully that happens soon.

We also meet a new character a reporter, she is hilarious, hopefully we see more of her. She reminds me of Melissa from Yu Gi Oh Arc V and a less annoy of Jason from Fairy Tail.

Sucy she will cheat, she don't care, that is why we love her, I am just glad that one of the victims of her cheating was one of Diana's lackeys, they deserve it, they deserve a whole lot worse, but I will take it.

What I thought was going to happen was Amanda gets in trouble and than Akko and Diana team up, but nope it was Akko who got the broom and Diana saved her. And we see the differences in Akko and Diana, and why I think they compliment very well and could learn from each other, and I think Ursula might agree. Diana told Akko to take her of her injuries, very sensible, very logical, while Akko she finishes the race, Akko is one to take changes, and can be out right reckless. And the way they can learn and become better, Diana can learn to take chances and not go by the book, while Akko not be so reckless, she is going get herself killed one of these day. Sounds like the making of a buddy cop team.

I think in the end, Diana admits Akko has guts, and gained some respect for trying, while Ursula sees more than guts in Akko.

Great episode, I wish it was longer.

Cannot wait till I can watch this! Trigger is my absolute favorite studio and I was honestly feeling lackluster with their most recent anime and hope they bring me gold once again.

Ep3
This series is entertaining for sure my biggest reason is Akko. She doesn't have any magic but isn't a cry baby like you see a lot of the male MCs in anime. She never gives up and keeps trying with the belief she can succeed she has a dream and wont quit. The shinning chariot is her guide in her mind and that keeps her motivated I look forward to the next episode.

Which one are you talking about? Luluco or Kiznaiver?I honestly don't think either one really shows off Trigger's full potential, but I don't think I would call either lackluster. The former was a funny fast paced romp that both parodied and also was a cool anime space adventure that kind of dragged its feet near the end and the latter was a very pretty show that ultimately fell flat with its story and themes. I can't say I'm too hyped about this show though. As of episode 3 they're still just going over the same thing as the first ova and it isn't really even that well animated in comparison.

With episode 3 it finally feels like the real show is starting. Not only are we now in 100% new territory for the story but the visuals and animation have gotten a noticeable upgrade. With episode 3 LWA finally feels like a trigger show, and I mean that in every good way.

Excitement, action, slice of life charm, comedy, worldbuilding. If the subsequent episodes can average being as good as this one then this show will easily surpass Kill La Kill in my opinion.

Episode 4

Well we have some Little Witch Academia media in which Akko is not the main character, so this is a first, one of the things I wondered about the series, well other characters get a chance to get the spotlight once and a while, I guess the answer is yes.

So Annabel the author of this book series that is a reference to Twilight, but I won't hold it against her, Nightfall sounds way better anyway, and it is really a curse and she put together this trap to pass the burden to Lotte.

And Lotte she is awesome in this episode, I love seeing her being the crazy fan girl of this episode. And Lotte she is not like Atto, she doesn't want to be like her idol, she just wants to admire her idol, I like that show you can react to your idols differently.

Heck we even got some characteristic of one of the mean girls, I don't know which is which, the dark haired one, I hate her a little less. Heck it would be good if they become more characters in their own right. Though did they snitch on our girls? I don't think it would have mattered, they would have been caught anyway, still wouldn't put it past it those two.

The big mystery who is the clock girl, I think it is going to be some big reveal later, maybe the list of voice actress might give is away, my guess right now, that is Amanda.

Anyway good episode, maybe next week it is Sucy's turn, that is going to be good.

The clock girl is Ms. Badcock, one of the professors. You can see her carrying the clock tower on her back in the background as the other teachers catch Akko and Co. when they return to Luna Nova

I'm surprised by how many obvious western pop cultures references there are in addition to all of the eastern ones as well. I'm not going to go back and pause every little frame but some of the obvious ones being pawn stars, twilight, and evangelion. Nightfall seems like it goes thru some crazy scenarios i bet those all reference something obvious or totally obscure as well. This is just my bias but when annabel was talking bout being flamed on the internet and hearing bout nightfall's "great" narrative i immediately thought "oh, they also like to talk shit on fairy tail and that author"

Episode 5

Well after a couple of episodes we took a break and had just slice of life stories, we are back to action, and with the exception of Ursula who is not in this episode, we use all of our main characters to play important episodes and show casing their skills and what they do best.

Having Akko and Amanda get in trouble and get into detention, it is a redo of Parade, only this time it just them and not their whole respective groups.

While Diana is Akko's rival because they are opposites or two sides of the same coin, Amanda she is Akko's rival because they are too much alike. Though if the three of them could get along they could be unstoppable team, hopefully by series end we get some development on that, especially if we going to have a plot and a big bad.

So we meet this dragon, and he actually talks and has intelligence of a human. I love in the end, he was just a bill collector and kind of a con man.

I thought we might have been headed towards a magic show fund raiser, would be a way to redo Parade, but nope Diana to save the day. But it was in direct, Akko and Amanda determination and willingness to break the rules, and Diana's talent and intelligence saves the day. Like I said, if they can only work together.

Well we do get some progression, Akko does acknowledge that she does respect Diana. Anyway another good episode, I do wish Sucy will get her own episode, though that would be something.

I saw the first three episodes a week ago and i gotta say, i'm impressed. It goes without saying that it was finally about time that this got a TV anime because, how do you even explain some things? Well, the anime does just that. But to see the rest, i have wait few months. I'm a patient man.

At least Netflix has the movies. I guess I'll watch those in the meantime .

Does Netflix ever stream anime it gets? Or does it just wait until the final episode airs in Japan and flood everything onto their service?


The only way Netflix streams anime is to wait till it ends and then, add all the episodes in there. It does share 50/50 opinions, as some like to marathon and some not. Me personally, i don't like but what can i do. we just have to be patient.

The episode was fun. I really liked the old dragon. But, it really didn't feel like that much progressed in this ep. tbh.
