Having been inspired by a magical performance of the witch Shiny Chariot, Atsuko "Akko" Kagari decides to enroll at Luna Nova Magical Academy, where Chariot had studied. She arrives at the nearby town of Blytonbury, and at the leyline which leads to Luna Nova, she is teased by some arriving students, who mock her non-magical bloodline. Unable to fly on a broom through the leyline by herself, Akko manages to get a lift from another new student, Lotte Yanson. However, because of some salty pickled plums Akko was carrying, she and Lotte, along with another new student named Sucy Manbavaran, end up falling out of the leyline into the forbidden Arcturus Forest. Put in a tough situation after Sucy lures out a giant cockatrice in order to collect one of its feathers, Akko comes across Chariot's wand, the Shiny Rod, summoned by her unshakeable faith in becoming a witch. As the cockatrice continues to pursue the girls, one of Luna Nova's teachers, Ursula, gives Akko the magic words needed to use the Shiny Rod, allowing the girls to escape through a portal leading straight to Luna Nova.

Akko begins her first day of lessons at Luna Nova, but the classes do not turn out to be as glamorous as she thought they would be. In addition, she has her first clash with the school's top student, Diana Cavendish, over their diverging views towards Shiny Chariot. While Akko later ponders over Chariot's unexplained disappearance ten years ago, Diana attempts to revive the academy's Jennifer Memorial Tree, which has been declining due to lack of nutrients, but instead, her restoration spell reveals apparently parasitic growths feeding off its roots. From the Shiny Chariot trading cards she had collected in her childhood, Akko recognizes these growths as the chrysalises of the Pappiliodya, an extremely rare species of magical butterflies, and manages to stop Diana before she can obliterate the cocoons. Using a spell listed in her trading card and some pronunciation help from Diana, Akko manages to use the Shiny Rod to successfully hatch the Pappiliodya, although the teachers assume Diana is the one responsible.

Despite struggling to fly a broom properly, Akko becomes eager to enter the school's traditional broom relay event after learning Chariot was one of the winners. Later, Akko goes with Lotte to a magic item café where they come across a legendary broom known as the Shooting Star that has been sealed off for being too temperamental. Interested in the relay's prize offerings, Lotte and Sucy decide to help train Akko to ride her broom. On the day of the relay, Sucy uses her concoctions to give her team an early start and Akko an alternate means of using her broom. Meanwhile, Amanda O'Neill steals the Shooting Star to use for herself, only for it to break loose and run wild, soon running into Akko. After being dragged around the world and shaken off, Akko manages to take hold of the Shooting Star and catch up to Diana, only to fall off again when it breaks its seal and flies away, leading her team to finish in second place.

Hearing Lotte's passion for the series and desire to meet the author, Annabel Crème, Akko and Sucy manage to sneak her aboard a food delivery truck into the city. During an event in which Annabel makes her first public appearance, Lotte takes part in a quiz and manages to win Annabel's fountain pen. It is at this point that Annabel, allegedly the twelfth author in the series to use the penname, declares that Lotte will be the next author to write Night Fall and disappears. Feeling that she would rather support what Annabel does rather than become her, Lotte consults the faerie residing in the fountain pen and soon finds Annabel, who has been doubting her literary abilities due to trolling comments. Reminding Annabel about what she loves about the series, Lotte convinces her to continue writing.

While being forced to clean the academy's tower following an argument in class, Akko and Amanda witness a horde of dragons carrying off the Sorcerer's Stone, leaving Luna Nova without any magical power.

After hearing a legend about a white dragon who resides in the nearby Ruins of Rastaban, Akko, Amanda, and their friends head there to retrieve the stone themselves. There, they discover the culprit to be a loan shark dragon named Fafnir, who has repossessed the Sorcerer's Stone from Luna Nova after their failure to keep up repayments on a loan he gave them. Luckily, Diana is able to decipher Fafnir's promissory note, written in dragon language, revealing that it does not actually mention paying back interest, meaning Fafnir has been tricking the school into paying back more than they actually owed. Caught in his deception, Fafnir is forced into nullifying the contract and returning the Sorcerer's Stone to Luna Nova.

During her search, Akko comes across Andrew, who expresses a strong disinterest in magic, and she inadvertently gives him animal ears and a tail. Arriving at the location of the fountain, Akko and Andrew are chased by and (with the unseen aid of Ursula) evade its guardian, a giant polar bear named Arcas. Upon approaching the fountain, Akko is shown a vision of a young Chariot, who was unable to receive the fountain's power until she proved herself to be a capable witch through her own effort.

Transforming into a merman to search for her, Akko comes across a sad fish and chooses to use her emergency magic reserve to free its family and Professor Pisces from a poacher's trap. When Akko is once again faced with expulsion for her actions, Pisces gives her an A in her exam (the theme of which was "Altruism and Magic") for helping the fish family, while Ursula vouches that, despite the gap between her and her classmates, Akko's magic has improved considerably since her enrollment.

The girls find themselves chasing the soldier across town as he seeks revenge on a coward despite having no memory of who he is. After visiting the magical café, they discover the coward the soldier is searching for was a bellringer who allegedly broke a promise to his witch daughter, Miranda Holbrooke. Upon visiting the town's bell, which is missing its chime, the soldier remembers that he is in fact the bellringer, who gave Miranda a staff made from the bell's tongue before he died. Realizing that the Miranda in question is actually Luna Nova's principal, Akko uses the repair spell on the bell to rush everyone back to Luna Nova and reunite Miranda with her father, allowing them to spend some time together before the resurrection spell wears off and the soldier returns to the afterlife.

In her studies, Diana discovers that his ancient power is sealed in Arcturus Forest, and can only be released when the Shiny Rod activates seven ancient words. Meanwhile, recalling a legend about an all-knowing spirit who only appears on the night of a blue moon, Akko takes the Shiny Rod with her to a place known as the Blue Moon Abyss. Reaching the center of the abyss, Akko confronts the spirit, who offers to grant her dream of being a great magician like Chariot in exchange for her past memories. Refusing to erase the past efforts she has made and determined to see her dream come true through her own strength, Akko awakens a new power in the Shiny Rod to force the spirit away.

While initially eager to pull pranks while in this form, Akko quickly becomes aware of the responsibilities and talent Diana has, becoming dejected by the time the real Diana appears and turns her back to normal. Encouraged by Ursula to focus on what she can do instead of comparing herself to others, Akko is once again called to the Fountain of Polaris, which shows her a vision of Chariot through the perspective of one of her friends. Realizing that Chariot cared more about simply bringing joy to others with her magic rather than striving to be the Moonlit Witch, Akko figures out what she can do for the festival.

On the day of the festival, as Akko transforms into various shapes to try and entertain Vajarois, Ursula finds an item called Vajarois' Vestige, learning that Vajarois was a princess who had swallowed a seed of sorrow to remember her lost friends, causing her to experience eternal sorrow. Upon receiving this information, Akko and the others go inside of Vajarois and activates the third word, causing the Shiny Rod to pull the seed of sorrow out of her, allowing her true form to rest in peace. As Akko celebrates her success, despite being disqualified from the running for Moonlit Witch (which a reluctant Diana wins), another figure silently observes from afar.

The faeries of Luna Nova go on strike, abandoning their duties and preventing the witches from using magic until they get a fairer share of energy from the Sorcerer's Stone. While Ursula is sent to retrieve some excess energy they can use, a new teacher named Croix Meridies arrives at Luna Nova to teach modern magic, much to the dismay of the more traditionally-minded teachers. Initially aiming to put an end to the strike, Akko ends up sympathizing with the faeries and joins their cause instead. As the fairy union tries to work out terms with the teachers, Croix proposes using her new techno-magical Sorcery Solution System to create new energy out of the wasted energy emitted from the Sorcerer's Stone, but this is met with refusal from the teachers. The strike worsens when a flame fairy is attacked while helping Hannah and Barbara take a shower, leading the other faeries to blame the witches. As Akko and the others try to free up the Sorcerer's Stone in accordance with their demands, only to get attacked by a mechanical fairy, Croix appears and uses her modern magic to absorb the negative energy from the faeries, heal the flame fairy, and solve the energy crisis. Impressed by Croix's achievements, the teachers allow Croix to install SSS as well as construct a laboratory in the New Moon Tower.

Fearing for Akko's safety, Ursula heads to the New Moon Tower and fights her way through Croix's defenses before confronting her. Ursula correctly deduces that Croix intends to claim the world's reconstruction magic for her own agenda, but Croix merely takes her leave, claiming how she did not gain any new information from Akko's memories anyway. After bringing Akko back to safety, Ursula explains to her about the ancient power called Grand Triskelion that is sealed away in the Arcturus Forest, and how it has the power to restore the flow of magic to the world. She reveals that the key to breaking this seal is to unlock the seven magic words hidden in the Shiny Rod, three of which Akko has already learned.

Looking into the meaning behind the Shiny Rod's sixth word, Lyonne, Akko hears from Croix about how Chariot climbed the legendary Wagandea tree to learn it.

Despite this, Croix takes Akko to the tree anyway, claiming that Ursula had lied about when the pollen would be released. While Akko begins climbing the tree, Ursula rushes to save her but is ambushed by Croix, who reveals she wants to destroy Akko as revenge against Chariot for being granted possession of the Shiny Rod instead of her. Ursula atempts to stop Akko from climbing the tree any further before the pollen is released, but is met with distrust from her over what Croix had told her. After Croix surprisingly prevents her from falling to her death, Ursula rushes to save Akko just as the pollen is released. Realising 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.

Noticing some techno-magic hovering around the protesters, Akko chases after one of the cubes and comes across Croix, and discovers that Croix has been manipulating everyone's emotions in order to convert it into magical energy. Just as Akko is attacked by Croix, she is saved by Ursula, whose identity as Chariot is finally revealed.

Back in the present, Diana, upon learning that Akko hasn't returned home, confronts Ursula, having figured out her true identity as Chariot. Finding Ursula too burdened with guilt to help, Diana, along with the others, searches for Akko and manages to find her totally desolate. Showing Akko her prized Shiny Chariot card, Diana reveals that she was also a fan of Chariot who had attended that same show. Despite losing her magical abilities as a result, Diana's admiration for Chariot gave her the determination to regain her magic through hard work.

Luckily, Akko, with help from her friends, manages to use the Shiny Rod to destroy the Noir Rod, save Ursula and make full amends to her, realizing she must follow her own path to becoming a proper witch. This emotional moment awakens the Shiny Rod's seventh and final word, allowing Akko to utilise the Triskelion's true power and transform Arcturus into a lush and vibrant forest.
