“Little Witch Academia” Commercials Spotlight Themes – Animator Posts Character Art

Coming January 8th, Trigger’s Little Witch Academia returns with a new series hitting Japanese TV and the local Netflix (an international Netflix streaming run is also planned). The latest look at this TV anime follow-up to 2013’s Anime Mirai short and 2015 crowd-funded production comes from a pair of commercials spotlighting the themes. 


The opening, “Shiny Ray”, will be performed by YURiKA. The ending theme, entitled “Hoshi o Todoreba” (“If You Follow the Stars”), will be performed by Yuiko Ohara. 


 Trigger animator Kengo Saito has also been posting a series of character art pieces.
