Studio Trigger began streaming an extended 72-second trailer for Little Witch Academia, its entry in the Anime Mirai 2013 initiative, on Monday.

 

Director/character designer/animation director Yoh Yoshinari (episode director for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt) and producer Naoko Tsutsumi (Black Rock Shooter, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt) led the project, and Michiru Oshima (Fullmetal Alchemist, BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Blast of Tempest) scored the music.


The anime features the following cast:



Under the Anime Mirai program, the Japan Animation Creators Association (JAniCA) receives money from the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs, and it distributes most of those funds to studios who train young animators on-the-job.


The 2013 program includes Gonzo's "Ryo," Trigger's "Little Witch Academia," ZEXCS' "Aruvu Rezuru," and MADHOUSE's "Death Billiards" shorts. All of the shorts opened in 14 theaters throughout Japan on Saturday.

 

It looks pretty interesting for a small project done by animators in training. Has some very nice visuals and the music is pretty good as well. The only problem I might have is one or two of the character designs, gleamed from this trailer.

This was quite enjoyable. I liked the animation. It was vibrant and had good motion. Too bad it's just a one off thing.

Could have sworn I posted what I thought about it but guess not.

 

That's probably my biggest problem.

 

I. WANT. MORE.

 

It was such a fun short series. The animation was pretty good, better then a lot of regular series. The effects and scenery were great and the monsters were interesting. It's kind of hard to believe this is meant to be something akin to training for a young group of animators.

I think that is the general sentiment.

This needs a full anime. 

I just think the concept of having The Worst Witch crossed with Gurren Lagann to be awesome. 

Straight up magic adventure.

Let's see ....

 

Good Animation (although a bit toony but who cares)

Interesting Characters

Well made humor

No senseless Fanservice

Nothing dumb or stupid that made me feel like I wasted my time

An feels like an interesting mix of Harry Potter and The Worst Witch, with some dungeon crawler an sentai added into it

 

Oh yeah this needs to be made into a series or just some epic movies :D

 

Plus I totally loved Suci, especially with what she did to that Minotaur :aww:

Well, not a full anime, yet, but it's a start.

Studio Trigger opened its tentatively titled Little Witch Academia 2 Kickstarter campaign on Monday. The studio had announced at Anime Expo on Friday that it would crowdfund the sequel to its Anime Mirai Little Witch Academia project. The sequel reunites the original staff, and they aim to finish the episode by winter 2014. (Trigger is working on another anime project, this fall's Kill la Kill television series.) Trigger already has the funds to create a 20-minute episode and plans to use the $150,000 in Kickstarter funds to add 15 minutes of run time.
 

As of this writing, the campaign has already raised US$48,949 in pledges and has over 460 backers. Preliminary character designs and an introductory video are available on the campaign's webpage. Backing rewards include the second episode on Blu-ray, a printed art book, cuts from the film reel, Giclee prints, a signed script, and a trip to Studio Trigger headquarters. The campaign closes on August 7.

Thanks to Rex Lee for the news tip

 

Update: As of July 9 on 1:45 a.m. EDT, the campaign has 921 backers who have pledged US$104,704.

So aside from both episodes being on Netflix for streaming currently.

 

As well that second episode being very good IMO.

 

It was announced some time back (not sure if anybody caught wind of this or not) that the series will be getting a TV Anime Series of it.

Also it'll also be on Netflix, since Netflix has licensed it for streaming.
