Little Witch Academia

According to IGN, Little Witch Academia is making its way to Netflix. The first 13 episodes of the series will be added on June 30th. No word on when the remaining 12 episodes will be added, but it’s only a matter of time.

Netflix describes the original Little Witch Academia short film:

Akko enrolls at the Luna Nova Academy for witches. She’s not the best student, but her bright attitude is the key to her and her friends’ success.

The series began as a short film in 2013. A second film was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2015. Both films, Little Witch Academia and Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade, are currently available on Netflix. The series was produced by Studio Trigger and released in Japan back on January 9th.

    Showing half of the show right after the whole thing (which they’re simulcasting weekly in Japan, by the way) finishes airing. It’d be somewhat forgivable if they’re dubbing it maybe, but Netflix stubbornly applying their binge model to anime kills a lot of good stuff they license. The hype even for good shows will die out once it stops airing, everyone’s moved on to the next thing. Really wish they’d stop licensing stuff if they’re not going to simulcast it. LWA deserved better.
