Now That Kill la Kill Is Over, Studio Trigger Will Focus On Little Witch Academia 2


Now that the Kill la Kill anime has ended, anime production studio Trigger are making preparations to dive into their next major project, Little Witch Academia 2, which the studio Kickstarted last year.


“Our schedule for April is to come up with a solid plot for the title,” Trigger wrote in an update to the Little Witch Academia 2 Kickstarter page. “We thought it would be best for everyone if we can have [creator] Mr. Yoshinari illustrate an artwork based on the actual plot of the story.”


“We plan to present our backers with the wallpaper in mid to late summer of 2014! As an compensation for the delay, we would like to present 2 concept artwork today!”


Little Witch Academia 2 is a sequel to the first Little Witch Academia animated feature, which was part of the “Anime Mirai” project and helped put Studio Trigger on the map even before Kill la Kill. The sequel is expected to by 35 minutes in length, and is planned for release this winter. When it is released, Little Witch Academia 2 will be subtitled in seven languages.
