Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade (リトルウィッチアカデミア 魔法仕掛けのパレード Ritoru Witchi Akademia: Mahōjikake no Parēdo ) is a anime film released on July 3, 2015, at Anime Expo 2015 and October 9, 2015, in Japan theaters. It's the sequel of the first special Little Witch Academia, and tells the challenge of Atsuko Kagari to produce a parade with the help of her friends of the Luna Nova Magical Academy.
The movie was funded by a Kickstarter campaign. It was funded up to $625,518 from a total of 7,938 patrons who pledged for the project to be made.
Akko entered a European, traditional, witch-training, prestigious school called "Luna Nova Magical Academy" based on the charming magic of the witch Shiny Chariot's show when she was young. However, not being able to ride on a broom still, while doing mischievous things in class causes her trouble. Akko's friends, caretaker Lotte and cynic Sucy, are allowed to participate in a parade that reproduces the history of witch hunting as punishment!
If they do not make the parade successful together with another three, Amanda and her troublesome group, they will be expelled. However, they would like to make it as happy as a show by Shiny Chariot! Akko's magical happy time parade, involving the whole city, takes off.
Akko, Lotte and Sucy, having gotten in trouble yet again, are forced to team up with three other troublemakers; Amanda O'Neill, Constanze Amalie von Braunschbank Albrechtsberger and Jasminka Antonenko, and must make an annual witch parade a success or else flunk the school year. Not content with how the festival revolves around the mockery and subjugation of witches, Akko becomes determined to make the festival a spectacle that would show off how awesome modern witches are and dispel their negative reputation. As Akko's ambitions for the parade grow, however, she ends up arguing with her friends when they don't feel the same way. However, Akko remains determined to prove Shiny Chariot's ideals of magic to everyone, using the Shiny Rod to borrow some magic from the Sorcerer's Stone for the parade. During the parade, some delinquent kids try to steal the rod, only to be caught by a giant that was sealed away long ago. Luckily, Akko is assisted by the other witches, including the return of Lotte and Sucy. Making up with each other, the three witches combine their power and put a stop to the giant, resulting in the parade becoming a great success.
