Teri first published a Little Witch Academia one-shot manga in the magazine in 2013, and began the "short intensive" manga series in August 2015. The manga has an original story. Shogakukan noted that the one compiled volume will ship on January 19.
Studio Trigger produced Little Witch Academia under the Anime Mirai program in 2013. The sequel, Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade, was funded through a Kickstarter campaign that surpassed its main goal of US$150,000 in five hours. The campaign ended one month later in August 2013 and accumulated US$625,518 (about 74 million yen) from 7,938 backers to reach its stretch goals. The film premiered at Anime Expo in July.
The anime's story follows Akko Kagari (Megumi Han), who begins magic school at the Little Witch Academia. While studying there, she hopes of becoming just like her idol, a magician named Shiny Chariot.
