acttil to release 1st episode on BD this summer

Studio Trigger announced at Anime Expo on Friday that it plans to create another episode of its Little Witch Academia magical fantasy anime short. The company revealed that it will launch a Kickstarter campaign next week to help raise funds for the project.

The new localization and game company acttil announced last month that it would be collaborating with Studio Trigger to release a Blu-ray Disc release of Little Witch Academia in a Collector's Edition Blu-ray Disc this summer.

Trigger describes the story:

Akko Kagari is an ordinary girl who joins the renowned witch academy for witch girls, Luna Nova Academy. When she was younger, she went to Magical Festa, a magic show hosted by a witch named Shiny Chariot. Akko was so mesmerized and inspired by Shiny Chariot's performance that she dreamed to someday be a "cool" witch like her. This young and impressionable Akko takes Shiny Chariot's words as her own motto: "Never forget, a believing heart is your magic." As part of a class, Akko and her classmates go into a labyrinth under the Tower of Luna Nova. There, a sealed ancient dragon was unleashed by one of her classmates. Akko tries to stop the dragon, but…

The studio posted the entire 30-minute anime with English subtitles on YouTube and Crunchyroll in April. Studio Trigger originally created the short for this year's Anime Mirai project.
