Little Witch is an archetypally rich Trigger show. The story is one of Akko's attempt to become her hero - her destined self - with sheer determination in spite of her magical impotence. The slice-of-life first half of the show shines thanks to the characters who have great depth of personality and synergy producing comedic moments which really hit. Each of these intial episodic narratives touches on a nuanced moral motif which is both interesting and doesn’t demand your attention. However, like with many shows which transform into stronger over-arching narratives, the transition is rocky. Nevertheless, the show manages to get back into gear for a finale with a refreshing twist. I very much recommend you give Little Witch a go!
