Little Witch Academia

Little Witch Academia

When Akko was a child, she idolized Shiny Chariot, a beautiful witch whose performances lit up the sky with whimsical lights and explosions. Now a teenager, Akko has entered a prestigious magic academy in hopes of following in her idol’s footsteps, but much to her dismay she discovers that magic isn’t all fun and games. There’s also flying brooms, boring lessons and spells-gone-awry to manage, not to mention the fact that her classmates and the school staff think Shiny Chariot is a cheap fraud! So when Akko’s class gets a new and dangerous assignment - to find rare treasures in a monster-filled dungeon - she’s eager to prove that she’s got what it takes to live up to her idol, even when faced with certain death...

Another show about spunky young witches that is tons of fun to watch. Some action, some adventure, some neat character/monster designs, but mostly pure fun.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Witches aplenty in both of these anime. Centred on young witches exploring their world and learning magic, these two titles are pretty similar. Both are very fun watches, so any fan of either work would do well to consider watching the other.

valondar valondar says...

Splendid art design and some gorgeous animation depicting a vivid fantasy world where young girls learn to become witches; and the protagonist girl is a spunky and enthusiastic child who may not be the most diligent student of magic but whose headstrong belief in the basic goodness of magic drives the action.

If you watched Little Witch Academia and wished it was a full series, Tweeny Witches (or Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu) is the answer. And if you've finished Tweeny Witches and want to see something very, very similar, well, this will oblige.

Bradalee Bradalee says...

Both series follow a group of children as they learn to become witches in a very pretty, vivid fantasy world. Gorgeous animation is a hallmark of both series, as are the main protagonists who both lack in power, but more than make up for in heart and belief in magic.

Little Witch Academia's art style is very reminiscent of the old Disney style, and is just an absolute joy to watch for the quality of animation, as well as the lovely story.

Little Witch Academia fans who are craving for more of the same should definitely check out Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu, and likewise fans of the latter should check out the former for the reasons detailed above.

These two titles are interestingly-animated, cute and quirky stories about young witches who have to learn the ropes and realize that magic isn't all it's cracked up to be. If you liked one, try out the other!

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned.

Both of these series take a popular genre of anime - magical girl in the case of Tweeny Witches, mecha in the case of Gurren-Lagann - and infuse them with a really stylish, cartoony design aesthetic. If you enjoyed the combination of the 'believe-in-yourself' ethic of such anime with stylish visual design in one of these series, you might consider trying the other out - even if you're not a fan of that genre.

Both Gurren Lagann and Tai Arusu take a young protagonist and give them an object of great power. The main power both protagonists have is the "power of heart". With an exotic cast of characters and a major power struggle, the animes are similar despite their different genres. 

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Both FMA and Arusu are very well-made series featuring children/teens that are fairly mature going on an journey. Each is very EPIC, with a plot that is filled with twists and turns that keep the series interesting.

Both are set in an expansive steampunk-with-a-twist world (magic in Arusu, alchemy in FMA).

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these anime take a look at what would have happened if a form of magic had won out in the technology race. Both anime evolve around the protagonist journeying to discover a new power. Both also use the idea of equivalent exchange; the magic cannot be done without something being the catalyst.

Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki is a young witch who has just turned thirteen, and as tradition dictates she must now leave the safety of her home for a year to undergo witch training. One clear night, Kiki takes off with her cat Jiji and her mother's broomstick to start her new life, and finds herself in a town near the ocean - but she's disappointed to find that people aren't nearly as friendly as she'd imagined they'd be. With nowhere to stay and no outstanding magical skills besides flying, Kiki begins to wonder if she's come to the right place; but after returning a pacifier to a customer of a local shop, its owner, Osono, offers her a place to stay. Kiki soon decides that she'll start her own delivery service, and with the help of newfound friends she sets forth on a journey to discover who she is and how to make it on her own.

Spunky and optimistic thirteen-year-old (give or take) girl witch with exceptional magical-broom handling abilities finds herself alone in a new place and must adapt. If you liked that in either Kiki's Delivery Sevice or Tweeny Witches, you're bound to like it again in the other. Watch!

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these are cute stories about young witches learning to use their powers. Both occur when the young protagonist travels to a place far beyond their home. There's plenty of broom flying antics, magic, and whimsical storytelling.

This series involves both magic and friendship between girls. Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha has all that, plus several seasons that lengthen the story considerably. Like Tweeny Witches, it'll capture your heart with its relationships and character development!
