Little Witch Academia TV Anime Listed as ‘1st’ in Website URL
The official website for the Little Witch Academia television anime series, previously http://tv.littlewitchacademia.jp, now redirects to a new URL http://littlewitchacademia.jp/tv1st/. Though the new URL contains the designation “1st,” no sequels for the television series have been announced.
The television anime premiered on January 8 on Tokyo MX, BS11, and Kansai TV. Netflix streamed the series in Japan as it aired. The second half of the television anime began airing in April. Netflix debuted the first 13 episodes of the anime outside Japan in June, and episodes 14-25 last month.
Yoh Yoshinari created and directed the original Little Witch Academia short as part of the Anime Mirai 2013 initiative. Fans supported the second short, Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade, via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that raised US$150,000 in six hours, and eventually US$625,518 (four times its original goal) in one month. The Enchanted Parade had its world premiere at Anime Expo in July 2015.
