Grab your wands! Little Witch Academia's pre-order begins


Don't let the price fool you.

It looks like the real magic has begun, because Little Witch Academia has finally prepared its spell that will allow viewers to pre-order the OVA on Blu-ray!

Hell, I'm still planning on getting the series when my funds are well established. 

Besides the 26 minute OVA, the Blu-ray will come with a 66 minute segment that covers the making of Little Witch Academia. Not only that, you will be getting the actual soundtrack for the series, along with a physical art book that contains 112 pages extravagant images of the artwork that was used in TRIGGER's amazing little piece.
