Best Anime Short Ever
8 February 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I am an anime fan, and I have seen a fair few in my time. This anime short blew me away. It is a beautiful, funny, fun and interesting adventure for all ages. The side characters, such as Sucy, are hilarious and very creative. It is a well-told story, with a good soundtrack and it instantly makes you want to see more. Little Witch Academia was a one-off anime short, at about 24 minutes, but their kickstarter campaign for Little Witch Academia 2 was successful, though a release date hasn't been announced. I for one can't wait until the follow up comes out, and many people feel the same. There is very little to fault with this. Verdict: A must-see for all anime fans.

Stay classy, friends. Steve
