While enjoying Little Witch Academia series (which many regarded as Harry Potter-esque magic school anime), I was stumbled upon a classic franchise called The Worst Witch which, like Harry Potter, takes place at a magic school in Britain and started off as a book series which first volume released around 1970s, making it older than the latter and even Little Witch Academia. Despite not as famous as those two, The Worst Witch attained enough popularity which earned it several adaptations with the latest being eponymous 2017 TV Series.
Unfortunately, out of the three fantasy franchises, The Worst Witch appeared to be most obscure, so much that many viewed The Worst Witch as nothing but rip-off to both Harry Potter and Little Witch Academia. F…Read more >
This is a glossary that I made to help those who still new to Little Witch Academia series:

We all know this anime mainly about cute witches (especially Atsuko Kagari who new in magical world) but NO magical girls.

I have watched all episodes of Little Witch Academia so far and I love them, but part that intrigued and depressed me is the truth about Chariot's role in crippling Akko's magic that Akko rendered incapable to fly (which turned out can be reversed). Part of me feels such revelation is not heartbreaking enough. How about something else happened instead which equally depressing?
