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...
Both anime are centred on a young female protagonist attending a school full of adventure and magic. The casts are pretty colourful and quirky, and both anime are entertaining, in their own ways.
Be aware that Valanoir is unapologetically bad, with a stupid plot and obnoxious characters, and its 100 minutes have about the same animation frame count as the intro scene of Little Witch Academia.
I still make this recommendation because there's enough similarites, at least to me, between the two titles to warrant a rec. If you liked LWA but feel the need for some schlock, why not give Valanoir a chance? You might appreciate LWA even more. And if you've already seen Valanoir, why not take a look at how it should be done?
If you just watched Valanoir and want an anime about a girl at a quirky/magical type of school that's actually awesome, check out the far superior Little Witch Academia. It has better visuals, a better story and all-around is just better.
One day, the brave hunter Kyle and his lady Alita are out hunting creatures when suddenly, a large black dragon appears, kidnapping Alita and killing their companion in the process. Hope lies only with a powerful blue dragon named Blau who is hell-bent on putting a stop to the black dragon's sinister plans. Now, in order to save Alita and prevent further destruction, Kyle must join forces with Blau and stop their opponent from reaching the black tower before it's too late!
Both titles are tie-ins to rather obscure video games, though you can strike out the 'rather' in Valanoir's case. Both are also very bad, with nonsensical plots, bad animation, no character development, and they're highly enjoyable for all their terribleness.
If it's schlocky fantasy you want, these titles will certainly deliver.
