The Fountain of Polaris (ポラリスの泉 Porarisu no Izumi?) is episode 6 of the Little Witch Academia anime.


Unable to master even basic transformation magic, Akko is relegated to her room and must miss the welcome party for a VIP and his handsome son.


Luna Nova hosts a welcoming party for the Earl of Hanbridge and his son, Andrew, who appears to be an old acquaintance of Diana's. Meanwhile, as Akko is stuck having to practise her metamorphosis magic after giving herself animal ears, she decides to go and search for the Fountain of Polaris, which she believes can grant her great power. During her search, she comes across Andrew, who expresses a strong disinterest in magic, and inadvertently gives him animal ears and a tail. Arriving at the location of the fountain, Akko and Andrew soon find themselves on the run from its guardian, a giant polar bear named Arcas. After another witch stops Arcas, Akko finds the fountain, which shows her past visions of how Shiny Chariot grew from a clumsy student into a magician worthy of wielding its power. Helping Akko to realise that acknowledgement is something that must be earned, Ursula encourages Akko to become stronger and restores Andrew, who promises to keep their encounter a secret.
