Richard of PopCults.com writes "What was a fun and whimsical series in its first film, The Enchanted Parade takes Little Witch Academia on a bit of a more serious tone, but it is still a very light-hearted story at its core. It is still the anime that fans fell in love with from the first film, but the slight maturity in the story telling does add depth and character to the series – all in good ways. Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade won’t see a wide release until October of this year, though I don’t know if it will simultaneously be released in both Japan and the US. However, given the popularity and support that the project has because of its Western fans, I am more than certain it will be released in both regions at the same time. And when it does, you should definitely check out this film for yourselves."
