It should come to no one’s surprise that my favorite anime company Trigger is finally making a anime series to their amazingly gorgeous standalone animation(s) Little Witch Academia. This is big for us fans and it is also a big step in favor of Netflix, due to them having secured the exclusive rights to stream the title in a simulcast fashion! I know, it blew my mind when I first heard this too! Let us get into the nitty gritty of our 3 points as to why you should watch this upcoming and frankly amazing anime!
- It is an anime for all ages: Much in comparison to previous Trigger titles, this anime has always had a very accessible form factor. While I cannot vouch on what path the actual anime will take as fan service will have to be a wild card factor. The anime is like watching magic unfold before your very eyes; because it is magical!
- The Anime already has two standalone films: as mentioned earlier this series was first given to us in a 30 minute and then hour long OVA bits that introduced us to the world that was Little Witch Academia; the series also got a shout out in Space Patrol Luluco! So if you are on the fence do not worry. You can watch these two gems already on Netflix.
- It is the first anime simulcast from Netflix: Long has netflix been the bane for many fans who wanted currently running anime to appear on this platform. Now, as of their move to acquire the rights for streaming, us anime fans on Netflix will finally have our very first titles to enjoy in simulcast fashion!
A few points but some prominent ones nonetheless! I am very thrilled to watch this anime as it airs over on Netflix this season and I cannot wait to splurge on the first episode impressions! This has been a series that we fans have been clamoring for, for a very long time now and our answers (and kickstater) have been answered! Now all that is left is to see how Netflix will truly handle this series and whether or not this will be the first in a line of further Netflix anime licenses grabs!
