A little history behind Little Witch Academia season 2
Before you directly jump on Little Witch Academia season 2, it is better to catch up on the backstory and origin to get the best experience of the plot!
The famous Japanese anime franchise called Ritoru Witchi Akademia or Little Witch Academia was created by Yoh Yoshinari and was produced by Trigger.
The anime TV series was telecasted in Japan from January 2017 to June 2017 and later Netflix signed their contract and the first 12 episodes were released. After sometime in August 2017, the rest of the 13 episodes were also made available to the audience on Netflix.
Before the release of the series, two short films were created based on this story. The original short film was written by Masahiko Otsuka and directed by Yoshinari himself.
It was first released in theatres in March 2013 and later it was uploaded on YouTube with English subtitles.
The second short film Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade was released after a few months in October of the same year.
And… If this was not enough, two manga series were also published based on this series by Shueisha. There are so many adaptations, which one are you going to start from?
What is Little Witch Academia about?
Little Witch revolves around the theme of Magic and its power. It starts with a girl named Atsuko “Akko” who took inspiration from a famous witch named Shiny Chariot and enrolled in Luna Nova Magic Academy (Rūna Nova Mahō Gakkō) to become one herself.
Because she is a muggle… oops! I mean since she lacks a magical background, she faces many obstacles but never gives up on her dream. One day in the academy, she finds a Shiny Rod which formerly belonged to Chariot.
Turns out it’s not an ordinary rod, it is an artifact which only reacts when its wielder has pure intention and wants to spread joy in the world.
The story takes an unexpected turn when it was discovered that there exists a Grand Triskellion in a forbidden Arcturus Forest sealed by the Nine Old Witches in which lies the power to restore the flow of magic.
But like every other story, this one also has a villain in it who is Chariot’s former best friend Croix. She wants to be the one to open that Triskellion with her evil emotions.
Who would they open that Triskellion first? Will Akko succeed in becoming a witch? All these questions will be answered in this series and new adventures will unlock in Little Witch Academia season 2.

Will there be a season 3 of Little Witch Academia?

Did Netflix remove Little Witch Academia?
Netflix has confirmed that the two Little Witch Academia movies are scheduled to leave the streaming platform on October 9 to begin streaming exclusively on Mixer. Little Witch Academia is set to join Ninja as the latest high-profile name to join Microsoft’s new streaming platform. However, Little Witch Academia season 2 is still going to stream on Netflix from 2022.
Should I watch the Little Witch Academia movie before Little Witch Academia season 2?
Either one, it doesn’t really matter. They’re both about the same level of quality. They do not depend on each other to understand what is going on. You should however eventually watch the OVAs (especially the first one) as they pack a whole lot of fun into such a small time slot.
Why can’t Akko do magic?
Due to her mundane background, Akko is very incompetent with magic, especially in the use of flying brooms despite having practiced this skill several times. Her inability is revealed to be due to the Dream Fuel Spirit used by Chariot in her magic show, which drained out her magic capabilities.
