About Little Witch Academia
Little Witch Academia 2 (tentative title) is the sequel to the previous title Little Witch Academia, directed by Yoh Yoshinari, and produced by studio TRIGGER. We plan to spend half a year on the scenario, and work on the storyboard and settings during the upcoming spring. We will get started with the actual production in summer and plan to finish by 2014 winter. As of now, we have the funds to produce a 20 minute episode. However, if we can receive support through the Kickstarter program, we will be able to add 15 more minutes to the running time.
As a young girl, Akko was fascinated and mesmerized by Shiny Chariot’s magic show. Determined to become a witch just like Shiny Chariot, Akko enrolls in the prestigious witch academy, Luna Nova. Contrary to her expectations, the classes are unexpectedly boring. Akko struggles to keep herself in high hopes and spirits, but the reaction from her peers remain indifferent. In the previous episode, Akko became the school’s hero by slaying the dragon that appeared from the underground dungeon, but her fame is short-lived. The new episode will be a sequel with new characters to the previous episode.

The first episode of Little Witch Academia was created under the “Anime Mirai” project by Yoh Yoshinari and studio TRIGGER.
The episode was made available to be viewed on the internet shortly after the premier, and many support and comments were given. To answer to these voices, we have decided to create a sequel to the episode. We also found out about Kickstarter through the comments given by the fans oversea.
Being a new studio, we felt the Kickstarter system to be innovative and fitting to our studio’s taste. Making a series “with” the fans is definitely what we were looking for. With the support from our fans, we believe that we can definitely develop on this new foundation.
