Hannah England (ハンナ・イングランド Hanna Ingurando ) is a character in Little Witch Academia, and a student of the Luna Nova Magical Academy. She often accompanies Diana Cavendish and acts as her loyal friend and assistant, along with Barbara.
Hannah is a girl of average stature. She has wavy auburn hair, that she keeps tied into a ponytail with a yellow bow. Her hazel eyes show a firm attitude, and she has somewhat thick eyebrows.
Her Luna Nova Academy standard uniform consists of a dark blue skirt and jacket with buttons in the center of the same color, a white shirt and ties underneath, along with the academy standard colored belt, in this case blue. She wears long socks of the same color as the jacket and dark brown shoes.
In her prototype design, Hannah had dark blue hair with pigtails instead of auburn hair with a ponytail.
Hannah is shown to be a very mocking girl. She's quite disrespectful to Akko and her friends, due to her incompetence with magic and her academic level in Luna Nova, in addition to being a friend of Diana, who also does not have a good relationship with her. As a result of their attitude in "Don't Stop Me Now", she and Barbara help Akko negatively in the broom race by transforming theirs into shoddy carts to participate, since Akko could not fly with hers. She also judges her own friend Barbara for loving in secret Night Fall.
Even when showing these bad qualities, they show too much fear to the monsters or dangerous places to which Diana takes them, who thinks that they should give fear and not the other way around.
Also, while she and Barbara started off as sycophants towards Diana, the two gradually view the Cavendish as a genuine friend, which becomes evident in the events of "Cavendish" as they left devastated when Diana finally left the academy. After the events of "Intelligence and Sensibility", Hannah and Barbara thank Akko for helping Diana return to Luna Nova Academy, something they admit that not even they could accomplish, and finally become her friend, as seen at the end of the final episode.
Abilities and Equipment
"Hannah" comes from the Hebrew name חַנָּה (Channah) meaning "favor" or "grace".
- Hannah's name, along with Barbara, is most likely a reference to William Hanna and Joseph Barbera of Hanna-Barbera fame (a very well-known American animation studio).
- Both Hannah and Barbara share their voice actresses with one of the guests in the "Samhain Festival": Both Hannah and Dorlin are voiced by Eri Nakao, while both Barbara and Ural are voiced by Chinatsu Akasaki.
- Alongside Barbara, Hannah was originally intended to be more sycophantic towards Diana early on and didn't bat an eye upon Diana's departure from Luna Nova only to find herself and Barbara competing over the position of new top student of Luna Nova as the sub-plot of the first part of two-parter episodes "Cavendish" and "Intelligence and Sensibility".
