Wanting to follow Chariot's example, Akko proposes putting on a metamorphosis show to make Vajarois smile, which prompts Ursula to look into what caused Vajarois' sorrow in the first place. Initially unwilling to get on board with Akko's plan, Lotte and Sucy notice how hard Akko is working to make magic fun and decide to help her in her act. On the day of the festival, as Akko transforms into various shapes to try and entertain Vajarois, Ursula finds an item called Vajarois' Vestige, learning that Vajarois was a princess who had swallowed a seed of sorrow to remember her lost friends, causing her to experience eternal sorrow. Upon receiving this information, Akko and the others go inside of Vajarois and uses the Shiny Rod's third spell to pull the seed of sorrow out of her, allowing her true form to rest in peace. As Akko celebrates her success, despite being disqualified from the running for Moonlit Witch, another figure is seen nearby receiving strange little flying cubes into her hand.


  • It is interesting to note that Sucy was called "creepy" Sucy. As in an American tv show called "The Oblongs" which took place in a town afflicted by a chemical spill, there featured a character of the same name. As Creepy Susie shares very similar characteristics as Sucy. This was more than likely a reference to the show.
  • In the Netflix worldwide release, the episode name is changed to Samhain Magic Festival[3].
  • The festival and this episode take place in the end of October, as stated in the chronicles book.[4]
  • The singers of all of the openings and endings of the Little Witch Academia TV series, YURiKA and Yuiko Ohara, lend their voices as Luna Nova students.[5]
