What You Need to Know:
- Atsuko Kagaro, more commonly referred to as "Akko" in the series, is the female lead protagonist in the popular Little Witch Academia series. She's the first generation of witches who reside in Japan, and is an admirer of Shiny Chariot. She attends Luna Nova Magical Academy and is known by her friends to be quite excitable, impulsive, reckless, yet optimistic in her approach to life. She's quite exaggerated in her expressions at times but it all boils down to her strong determination to face her challenges head on, and have a fearless approach to things. Due to her social characteristics and compassionate attitude, many people are drawn to her energy.
- In spite of being a first generation witch, Akko sadly isn't very capable when it comes to utilizig magic, especially when it comes to flying brooms. Her overall potential however is beyond comprehension, as she's able to fully maximize the potential of the Shiny Rod that once belonged to Shiny Chariot, with an almost uncanny mastery. For those who've watched the second movie you'll likely know what we're talking about.
- However, just like we mentioned earlier, Akko's greatest power comes in her determination and ability to overcome just about anything that's thrown at her. If that isn't a superpower then we truly don't know what is! She came face-to-face with an enormous magic-eating dragon and took it on like a champ! So, to celebrate all of her work over the years, we must send Akko nothing but love and say happy birthday! May you continue to fight and shine on for many more!
Akko-chan! I will always root for you to the very end! Keep fighting!
Hands down one of my favorite female anime characters of all time! I love her willpower and I'm inspired to be like her!
