My only question though about this series. 

 

Is whether it'll already have a dubbing to it when released on Netflix (since it'll be a Netflix Exclusive), or will it all be a subbed series with maybe a dubbing later on down the road?

 

Don't recall or think that any of the news about the series mentioned anything about this. 

 

Though I do hope it'll have a dub to it. Nothing against subs with the original Japanese voicing an all. But I'm not keen on trying to focus in on and read the sub titles while also trying to watch what happens in the episodes or film. Sort of like just kicking back and watching the whole thing while being able to understand what's being said, without missing anything.


Show me the way to go home - I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago - And it’s gone right to my head
Wherever I may roam - On land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

Episode 1 was faaaaaantastic.

 

It looks like the beginning is mostly going to be an extended retelling of OVA 1, they reanimated the Shiny Chariot intro sequence.

Why would JK Rowlings have grounds to sue?

 

She didn't start this whole genre. Sure her books hit the chords that resonated with people and made it popular. But she didn't start it. 

 

Also this series is more akin to Jill Murphy's, "The Worst Witch" series in a way. But all anime'd up an so on.

 

Anyways ....

 

First episode was pretty good. Though my only big issue would be Akko getting Shiny Rod so early. Feel like they could have waited on that one a bit. 

 

Still awesome animation though. :P

 

I also was figuring it'd be on Netflix. But I guess either I misunderstood or the articles worded it wrong. But it seems like it'll be airing in Japan first and then be available for stream on Netflix. Which hopefully will have dubbing. 

 

Either way good start and looking forward to the next episode.

But I look and I don't see it on there. Just the original Short and the Enchanted Parade film.

 

No series.

oh

 

Well that sucks.

 

Hopefully they'll bring it with a dub, when released for US.

 

Nothing wrong with subs ........ but I do get tired of trying to read what people are saying while at the same time trying to watch what's happening. XD

Glad to see that Akko isn't all powerful and that she still has a lot to learn
 
Diana is pretty interesting character to say the least and even though it seems like she has a superiority complex, she's not half bad 
 
Good episode overall though....Really loving the school setting and that one teacher that wants to tutor Akko

I like this series better when it's about having fun at Harrypotterland rather than shallow moral lessons about prejudice and friendship. That's the whole reason why the second OVA was so boring. That and the painful lack of Sucy's backstabbing antics.

 

I liked the first episode, so I'll keep watching for a little bit longer.

I'm really happy with how this episode ended
 
It wasn't a bad episode but I thought that it would have been a little too convenient that Akko found some legendary super fast broom that she would end up being the first person to tame just cause its her and thus she would end up winning the prestigious race, so her not only failing to tame it but losing the race was quite refreshing imo
 
I feel like the broom will find its way back to her eventually but she has to earn the right to claim it and frankly she still has a long ways to go before she can actually get good lol
 
And nice Inferno Cop cameo lol

Well I don't know about your guys, but Akko reminds me a lot of Star Butterfly. They work ethics or lack of work ethics are very similar, though Star does have Diana's natural talent.

I've never seen it either and I'm wondering if not watching it is negatively affecting my opinion of this show. I'm enjoying it still but the way everyone was talking about this show being by far the best thing this season and an early contender for AOTY and yet it's not even in my top five among the stuff I'm watching this winter so I can't help but feel it's a bit overrated.

Anyway for the most recent episode, I'm glad to see Akko finally start to move in the right direction (with help from Ursula) and honestly it seems that part of the problem is that most of the teachers at this academy completely suck which makes it hard for anyone without natural talent to learn.

Another one I forgot to post about (And this was ironically my favorite episode so far)

Sucy: I'm never bored when Akko is around - You and me both Sucy xDDDD

This was easily the funniest episode of the series so far.....I was DYING ENDLESSLY OF LAUGHTER for the majority of this episode lol

I felt really bad for Akko when Bitch the Witch-Sensei was trying to bring her down and get her expelled, but thankfully best girl Ursula/Not Chariot put that bitch in her place and said all those heartwarming things about Akko

Great episode overall and this is easily my favorite one so far....Loving how this show continues progresses as well as seeing Akko's gradual growth as a character which bore fruits in this episode which I loved

And yeah @Goddess, most of the teachers (and students) are jerks and I hate them

Everyone likes it? I had no idea. I only have my own opinion and this forum, and it is not a very high opinion. If anything I thought watching the first OVA was making it harder for me to enjoy the series, since I liked it a lot, and the anime wasn't exactly living up to it.

 

Well, I'm not one to talk, since I haven't watched past episode 4. Maybe it gets really good, I dunno.

Are we just going to ignore the awesomeness that was Chariot in this episode? Though I wonder why she's still so hesitant to tell Akko the truth.

These last handful of episodes have been pretty good, I think the main reason this wasn't in my top five for last season was because the winter season was so strong.

I like the new OP but I prefer the old ending.
