LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIA (Eng Sub) [animation]

I love the colour work in LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIA. It not only complements the cute art style but adds a certain charm to the overall world, plus the story is interesting enough not to put me to sleep. The premise is basically written in the main title — girls learning the art of witchcraft — and you can watch the entire pilot episode below:

Trigger Inc., also known as Studio Trigger, is a Japanese animation studio founded by former Gainax employees Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masahiko Ohtsuka in August 2011. Gainax have been behind some of Japan’s most loved and commercially successful animes to date (NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, FLCL, GURREN LAGANN to name a few) and their new project looks to be heading in that same direction of critical acclaim status, especially considering that LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIA is being crowdsourced (the public pledge their own money to any cause of their choosing if they believe in the idea), so you know people want to see more.

Here’s one of the rarest hardcopy pieces of anime on the planet — DAICON III and DAICON IV Opening Animations (1981/1983) — created by the founding members of Gainax for a popular science fiction convention in Japan (Nihon SF Taikai), which includes numerous celebratory references to otaku culture:

Unfortunately, those trailers cannot be copyrighted and distributed due to the appearance of so many scifi and comic book characters, hence their rarity (thanks a lot Playboy). Today, the original laser-disc copies of those trailers easily sell for over $1,000.

In conclusion, LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIA, the coming-soon series, is sure to impress.
