If you know me, you know that I’m crazy for anime. It all started in 1997 with bootleg Chinese copies of Sailor Moon, on VHS and it was love at first sight. Since then its been Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Dirty Pair, Akira, Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL, hentai, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, Otakon, Dragon Ball Z, cosplay, Eureka Seven and yaoi. Thousands of dollars and time later…. still addicted. So when I run into something new, I want to share and talk about it.
This new title is called Little Witch Academia and to give you some background on it, the studio that produced it got a grant from the Japanese government to make it with young animators making their own movie! How awesome is that?!? The studio streamed the movie with English subtitles online to overseas markets and was released in the theaters March 2, 2013.
If you like The Worst Witch, Harry Potter, Madoka Magica, Sugar Sugar Rune, magic, girls coming of age, dragons, and beautiful animation you’ve got to watch this short.
