‘Little Witch Academia’ Is A Youtube Animation You’re Sure To Enjoy onTakuchat.com by user DigitalWolf
Directed by Yoh Yoshinari, who has a history animating in popular anime like FLCL (Fooly Cooly), Gurren Lagann, Neon Genesis Evangelion, A Letter to Momo, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt and a wide range of others. He seems to be working with a new group called ‘Studio Trigger‘ which I’m told is apart of the ‘Young Animator Training Project’ also called ‘Anime Mirai‘ which funds young animators(in Japan) to create original anime.
Their new Animation ‘Little Witch Academia’ is an OVA being released by episode on youtube. Its about a girl who, inspired by her idol, joins a witch academy despite not coming from a witch family. So far the story seems simple, but its without a doubt a joy to watch.
And here the directors pedigree shows. The animation is fluid, the characters are all well designed, and the effects are flashy. I’ll be keeping a close watch on this one for sure.
And Best of all, its already subtitled in english!
