Miranda Holbrooke (ミランダ・ホルブルック Miranda Horuburukku?) is a character in Little Witch Academia. She is the headmistress of Luna Nova Magical Academy.


Holbrooke is a short, old woman with short pale green hair and blue eyes. She wears a red jacket over her uniform, a necklace of green stones, a white scarf, rectangular lenses, and a large hat worn by all teachers.


Holbrooke proves to be a serious and respected woman. She maintains a formal relationship with all the students and teachers of the academy. She also proves to be a very patient and good-hearted person, being very accommodating of her students, even the most problematic ones. She has a good sense of humor and prefers compromise over conflict.



Holbrooke was born during the Golden Age of Magic as the daughter of a witch from a famous witch clan and a human pirate. After her mother died shortly after giving birth, her father promised her clan that he would turn her into a great witch. In 1880, she received a letter from the Luna Nova Magical Academy to become a student. Before she left, her father made her a staff with the church bell to be her amulet. However, her father was killed shortly after she entered school. During her time in Luna Nova, Holbrooke devoted her entire life to the study of magic, eventually becoming the headmistress of the academy.

Akko Kagari

Akko was one of the first non witches to ever enrolled in Luna Nova Academy. Unlike the other teachers except Ursula, Holbrooke sees much potential within Akko and have a great time when Akko spiced up her role in the festival and was actually proud of Akko's prominence within the strike. Towards the end of "Blytonbury's Undead Travelogue" when Akko ends up reviving Miranda's deceased father, Mr. Holbrooke, instead of expelling Akko for breaking a school rule, she makes Akko and her friends fix all the brooms.

Anne Finnelan

Goodness, no need to be so stiff. See, these poor students all look like you've been lecturing them since the second century. I feel so bad for them.

Holbrooke respects and appreciates Finnelan for his dedication as a teacher; however, she also finds her extreme rigidity with students annoying.

Ursula Callistis

Holbrooke is very kind to Ursula, despite her clumsiness as an academy teacher. Unlike other faculty, Holbrooke keeps a good memory of her stage persona Shiny Chariot, rejoicing to see her image in the Chariot Card of Akko.
