Netflix Sets ‘Little Witch Academia’ Anime Premiere

Little Witch Academia Header 6-24While we’re in the midst of the second cour for Little Witch Academia as it’s broadcast in Japan, Netflix has now announced their streaming plans for the show that they have the rights to. The service has scheduled a June 30th, 2017 debut for the first thirteen episodes of the show while the back half of it will come later down the line. At the moment, the series page isn’t listing the details of what the language options will be.

The project sees Yoh Yoshinari directing it with Michiru Shimada handling the series composition. Shuhei Handa is on board as the character designer with Studio Trigger handling the animation. The project is set for full-length episodes with Netflix already set to handle distribution for it.

The Japanese cast includes Megumi Han as Atsuko “Akko” Kagari, Fumiko Orikasa as Lotte Yanson, Michiyo Murase as Sucy Manbavaran, Yōko Hikasa as Diana Cavendish, Arisa Shida as Amanda O’Neill, Rie Murakawa as Constanze von Braunschbank Albrechtsberger, Reina Ueda as Jasminka Antonenko and Noriko Hidaka as Shiny Chariot.

The opening song is “Shiny Ray” from YURiKA while Yuiko Ohara will be performing the ending theme song, “Hoshi wo Tadoreba.”

Plot concept: The show’s story revolves around Akko, who as a child watched the witch Shiny Chariot perform a show, and from then on dreamed of becoming a witch. She enters the Luna Nova Academy, a school for witches that Shiny Chariot attended. In this new town she meets new friends and starts a new school life. At the school she has lessons on riding brooms and the wonder of magic, but Akko and her friends Lotte and Sucy keep getting wrapped up in tumultuous events.
