The official website for Studio Trigger's "Little Witch Academia" anime project announced on Friday that a television anime series has been green-lit. The anime's Twitter account asked fans to look forward to a "new Little Witch Academia world!!" Studio Trigger President Masahiko Otsuka said that it will be a full length (30 minutes each episode) TV anime series with director Yoh Yoshinari returning. He added that the staff is diving headlong into production at the studio, after passing the baton from the recently concluded Space Patrol Luluco anime.
Yoh Yoshinari created and directed the first short as part of the Anime Mirai 2013 initiative. Fans supported the second short via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that raised US$150,000 in six hours, and eventually US$625,518 (four times its original goal) in one month. The Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade sequel had its world premiere before 4,000 fans in a standing ovation at Anime Expo last July.
