Lotte is one of Akko's best friends. Akko greatly appreciates Lotte for her kindness and is impressed by Lotte's ability to communicate with spirits. Lotte also gives Akko advice on what to do in tight situations and reminds her of any potential consequences of Akko's actions. Despite having to deal with Akko's antics, Lotte actually admires Akko's drive as it allows her to experience exciting things which she can't do due to her quiet personality.
In The Enchanted Parade, Lotte's friendship is stretched to the breaking point with Akko after she rips Lotte's treasured sheet music. Akko downplays her actions but ultimately feels guilty for hurting Lotte. Lotte coldly shuns Akko due to her selfishness but later finds it in herself to forgive her after seeing Akko's apology and passion, performing amazing feats in contrast to her own mild temperament.
Sucy is also one of Akko's best friends. The Manbavaran often uses Akko as the main subject of her spells and potions, much to Akko's annoyance, and has a habit of mocking Akko's poor magic abilities, but they get along nevertheless. They had a rocky start, as shown in "A New Beginning" where Sucy had Akko's bird-shaped bag animated to life which resulted in the pecking of an excited Akko's left eye. This was shortly followed by Sucy transmuting rope into snakes that curled around Akko's wrists, greatly scaring her in the process and caused her to fall into the creek below the bridge from which they stood. Despite Sucy's constant mockery of Akko, she thinks of Sucy as one of her closest friends, as she volunteered to dive into Sucy's mind to wake her up from her coma in "Sleeping Sucy". Akko eventually discovers, while in Sucy's mind, that her most cherished memory was their first meeting.
Akko and Sucy's friendship is tested in The Enchanted Parade after Sucy tries to make Akko realize the depths of which she hurt Lotte. Akko loses her temper and declares she and Sucy are no longer friends, but feels guilty afterwards. Sucy later saves Akko from falling and quickly mends their friendship, joking that she never takes Akko seriously anyway.
—Akko to Amanda, Amanda O'Neill and the Holy Grail
They are good friends in both the short films and the anime. Akko met Amanda in the second film after they were forced to team up and plan the witch parade. They easily befriended one another, most likely due to their similar rebellious natures. When Akko invited the others to help with the parade float, Amanda, along with Constanze and Jasminka were the first ones to show up.
The anime expanded the two's relationships where as expected, there's some mild hostility and not above teasing one another. Notable instances include in "Luna Nova and the White Dragon" where Akko and Amanda argued over the latter relaxing during Lukić's class and in Chamber of Time game where Amanda teases Akko's chance to be possessed by the ghost who allegedly haunted Luna Nova Library. Despite that, they do take part in friendly small talk, like during "Orange Submariner" when Akko mentioned Amanda's skill in broom flying and asking Amanda if she considered becoming a broom dancer.
—Akko to Constanze, "Sky War Stanship"
The events of "Sky War Stanship" show Akko and Constanze greatly bonding. Constanze is at first annoyed at Akko's clumsiness, but the two of them begin to get along when Akko states how alike they are in dedication and drive towards their respective passions. In the end of the episode, Akko makes Constanze smile for the first time in the series.
Although not much is known about their relationship, Akko and Jasminka are friends. Jasminka is shown to willingly share her food with Akko, and gets worried when Akko goes missing, hugging her after Diana finds her.
—Diana and Akko, "What You Will"
In the television series, Akko doesn't like Diana at all for her somewhat arrogant character, and sees her as a rival, while Diana sees her as a simple lowly witch who doesn't understand the true meaning of magic. Akko is always trying to prove herself better than Diana. The fact that Diana is a much more competent witch is very frustrating to her. Another reason why Akko dislikes Diana is because she does not like Shiny Chariot, though unaware that Diana herself used to idolize Shiny Chariot. Despite their rivalry, Diana isn't derogatory towards Akko unlike Hannah and Barbara; instead of outright insulting her she criticizes Akko's dreams. Even so, their relationship seemed to improve upon Diana gaining some respect for Akko's passion and great determination.
Their bond further strengthens during the events of Diana's household succession crisis, where Diana sees Akko's unrelenting persistence on having Diana return to school. In return, Akko witnesses Diana's compassion towards everyone, even her enemies. With mutual respect established, Diana is no longer as harsh as she was to Akko.
—Akko and Diana, Yesterday
In "Yesterday", Diana shows great concern for Akko, confronting her idol Chariot (Ursula Callistis) over the latter's seeming abandonment of Akko in her greatest time of need. Diana finally tells Akko the truth about her love of Shiny Chariot, and the two bond over their common passion, even as both recently had upsetting encounters with real-life Chariot. Diana gives Akko her precious premium Chariot card to remind Akko the truth of "A believing heart is your magic", which had inspired her to regain her own magic after it being absorbed by Chariot.
In "Tree of Leaves", Diana was shown to genuinely care about Akko. As Akko was knocked out of the Shiny Ballista by the Magitronic missile, Diana was in panic and even started sobbing until she saw that Akko was unharmed, relieving her tension. After magic is restored and the world has been saved, Diana is shown to jest about Akko's failure in broom flying, implying they have a close yet somewhat rivaling relationship now.
In the OVAs, their dynamic remains roughly the same, however Diana acted a bit more snobbishly in the OVAs. It was also implied that Akko realized Diana's former idolization of Shiny Chariot at the end of the OVAs.
Akko is constantly bullied by these two in both the OVAs and the anime series. In the OVAs, they often ridiculed Akko with Diana, but in the anime, they are also shown to belittle her without Diana's presence. In fact, they outright antagonize Akko unlike Diana. Akko considers them to be a nuisance and is constantly being put down by the two. Akko got her revenge when, under the guise of Diana, tricked the two to stand outside, ordered them to do weird poses and put makeup on them.
Upon hearing that Akko convinced Diana to resume her education in Luna Nova, the duo uneasily expressed their gratitude to Akko for her actions. Afterwards, their relationship has softened and they are shown to have gained respect for Akko by "Tree of Leaves".
—Akko finally has a proper meeting with Chariot, The Road to Arcturus
—Akko to Professor Ursula, "The Road to Arcturus"
Professor Ursula is a teacher at Luna Nova and is also Akko's mentor. Akko greatly appreciates this, especially since most of the Luna Nova faculty is very scornful of Akko. And unlike the other faculty, she never seems to be irritated by Akko and is willing to help her pupil fix situations. Ursula sees a lot of her younger self in Akko; she admires Akko's confidence and selflessness and sees great potential in her. During "Orange Submariner" when Professor Finnelan stated that Akko was a failure, Ursula furiously rebutted and exclaimed at how ignorant Finnelan's remark was. Occasionally, she has quick lapses of inner self-reflection whenever Akko talks about Shiny Chariot. Akko does not realize that Ursula is Shiny Chariot, however. She taught Akko that people don't get what they want but what they had put effort through their experiences, a teaching that she gained from her own mentor. Also unknown to her, Ursula was entrusted by Woodward to make sure that Akko will fully awaken the rest of the Seven Words of Arcturus in order to break the seal of Grand Triskellion. Ultimately, Akko is highly fond of her as a tutor, and in Chamber of Time she even describes Ursula as "like a second mom" to her.
The biggest instance of the close relationship between Ursula and Akko is shown in "Episode 21", where Akko became frustrated with her quest for the Words and Grand Triskellion, that led Croix to trick her into climbing Wagandea tree in hopes of using the tree's pollen to strip her of her magical abilities. By this point, Akko was pushed to the breaking point that she ignored Ursula's warning about the pollen, expressing her distrust over what Croix had told her, only to be shocked that Ursula flies through a cloud of toxic pollen to save her from its effects, injuring herself and ultimately losing her ability to fly. Realizing just how much Ursula has watched over for, Akko expresses her deepest apology and gratitude to her, which turns out to be the true meaning of "Lyonne" that unlocks the sixth word and heals Ursula's injuries. Unfortunately, this isn't the true test for their relationships, as Akko learned that Ursula was responsible for handicapping her magical abilities to the point of her cannot fly with the broom. Still reeling from the revelation that her professor is Chariot, Akko cannot accept that her devoted mentor and lifelong idol did harm to her, and she runs off in tears.
Despite this, the bond between the student and teacher later saved from ruins thanks to Diana who rekindled Akko's commitment to the dream Chariot instilled in her through conversation between two young witches about their mutual experience of being inspired by Chariot's magic, albeit also accidentally victimized by both it and unknown to them, the beginning of the feud between their role model and Croix.
When Chariot is devoured by the monstrous form of the Noir Rod due to saving Croix, Akko immediately recalls her first meeting with Ursula, where her Professor guided her through the first Word of Arcturus. She uses the Shiny Arc to save Chariot, whom she surprises by greeting her hero the way she always intended to when they'd meet again. Akko even keeps the promise of returning the Shiny Rod, and explains her realization that she cannot be Chariot, she can only be herself, and work as hard as she can to make people smile even though she can't fly and often makes mistakes. Towards this purpose she asks that Chariot continue to teach her magic as Professor Ursula, and the two embrace.
Though not confirmed, it's implied that when she and her friends about to interfere the fight between Chariot and out-of-control Noir Rod's dragon form, Akko overheard Ursula crying out how much she blamed herself for indirectly causing Croix's fall to darkness as well as handicapping Akko's magical abilities which culminated to madness they are in. The revelation of Ursula truly cherised the bond that she made with her precious student and fan to the point of forsaking the quest for Grand Triskellion as the newly restored magical world without Akko is not worth to live in, coupled with her prep talk with Diana, ultimately become the driving force for Akko both to forgive her mentor and reaffirmed their bonds. This also allowed Akko to unlocked the final Word, something which Ursula failed to do in the past.
—Akko and Croix, Chariot and Croix
Akko and Croix had good relationship with each other and excited with the fact that Croix used to be good friends with Shiny Chariot. Akko also intrigued with her magitronic since she used Sorcery Solution System to save Luna Nova from the crisis in spite of breaking the tradition at Luna Nova and is pleased to see her praise Chariot. She senses no deceit from Croix and looks to her for guidance for the Seven Words, revealing that she knows nothing about the Grand Triskellion and just wants to meet Chariot. Akko's trust is eventually betrayed after Croix reveals her true color and plan to exploit human emotions as a resource for magic. In spite of this, it's implied that Akko had forgiven Croix after Noir Rod incident as she had allowed Croix to assisting her in stopping Noir Missile.
Akko and Finnelan had tense relationship due to former's poor talent in magic that made the strict teacher saw her as an eyesore on some occasions. Fortunately, Akko finally gained her respect by the time she finally flew with her broom on her own.
Miranda Holbrooke treats Akko just like every other student despite Akko not coming from a magical line of witches. In "Blytonbury's Undead Travelogue" where Akko ends up reviving Miranda's deceased father, Miranda ends up making Akko and her friends fix the witch brooms instead of expelling them for breaking a witch rule as punishment.
Akko has trouble understanding what Pisces is often saying due to poor communication skills with fishes and tries to earn her way onto Pisces good side in "Orange Submariner". This ends up leading to Akko having to flush down the still alive Pisces due to Pisces almost dying thanks to the mineral water that Akko poured into her bowl. Towards the end of the episode where Akko ends up saving her, Pisces expresses how much fun she had in the sea thanks to Akko.
Like other teachers besides Ursula, Akko had a tense relationship with Badcock due to her poor grades. When Akko was trying to pass her classes, she ends up giving Badcock a bad apple which in turn caused Badcock to vomit.
Like the other teachers besides Ursula, Akko had troubling passing Lukić's class because she found it boring. Akko tries to studying for Lukić's exam and ends up making a C+.
—Akko to Andrew, The Fountain of Polaris
Andrew seems to have taken interest in Akko after their encounter with the Arcas and their trip to the fountain. It is implied that Akko finds Andrew to be attractive, however she dislikes his constant remarks about magic being useless in the modern world. However, after they had a conversation on the fountain in his mansion during the celebratory party, Andrew seems to slightly change his opinion of magic. Not only that, their recurring interaction with each other also allowed Andrew to stand up for his ideals.
In "Bee Commotion", Akko gets greatly embarassed when Andrew swoons over her due to Cupid Bee's influence. As much as she inspired Andrew to stood up for his ideals, Andrew advised Akko to be a witch who bring joy to everyone in her own way instead of through Chariot's footsteps.
—Akko to Lotte, New Age Magic
—Akko, New Age Magic
Akko truly cares for them and she sees them as equal to Witches, leading her to join their cause in getting the necessary magical energy that allows them to survive. The Spirits even rally with her to stand up against Diana, who is completely ignorant of their plight. At night, they brew soup for Akko, Sucy and Lotte showing how much they truly appreciate the young witch's help. After witnessing one of their friends injured by Hannah and Barbara (later revealed to be Croix), the Spirits rampage across Luna Nova, attacking teachers and students on sight but they spare Akko and her friends because she will never betray them.
In Sky War Stanship, Akko's friendship with them remains strong as they lend a hand in a project she and Constanze are working on despite moments ago, they were apathetic towards Constanze.
Mutual hostility existed between them due to Thomas disliking witches and Akko having the Shiny Rod stolen by him. They later gain respect for each other after the fight with the Titan and playfully throw tomatoes at each other.
