Since seeing Shiny Chariot’s magic show when she was a child, it has been Akko Agari’s dream to become a witch. In the hope of fulfilling her dream, she enrols at Chariots alma mater, the traditional and prestigious Luna Nova Magical Academy.

A new town, a new school life and new friends too.

At the witch’s academy she get involved in all sorts of marvellous classes, such as how to ride a broomstick and using magic. However, with her friends Lotte and Sucy, she gets involved in all sorts of boisterous antics that are only possible at a school like this!

Lotte’s first step to becoming the witch she dreamed of starts here at Luna Nova!

Voices From the Fans

Japanese Harry Potter, hehehe. But, that’s not my very first point to watch it. The animation, the story plot, the characters development… it’s really beautiful. Not to compare it with the previous movie, but I think this currently airing series is really worth to watch. And more, forget what I said in the first sentence in this suggestion, I personally DID NOT like words ‘An anime like Harry Potter’, because this anime is kind of ‘reminds you of’ or ‘similar’ to Harry Potter.
