Little Witch Academia is a 30 minute short by Studio Trigger that blew audiences away when it first came out. Much like the anime Free!, Little Witch Academia started out as a short PV that caught audiences’ attention due to the marvelous animation. The project was Studio Trigger’s entry in Anime Mirai, a showcase of animated projects by participants in Japan’s Young Animator Training Project.
The project has become so popular outside of Japan that it’s actually being localized for English-speaking audiences. We’re even getting the collector’s edition! But that’s not all. Trigger has also announced plans to hold a Kiskstarter to fund a second episode of Little Witch Academia. Those who watched part one will know that the ending was left wide open, so the opportunities available for Trigger to take with a second installment are really exciting.
If you by chance haven’t seen part one, don’t worry. It’s available to watch with subtitles on both Youtube and Crunchyroll. You can watch it below if you have the time.
