Starting off our list of best anime from 2017, Little Witch Academia feels like someone took the best elements of Harry Potter and Studio Ghibli, and smashed those together into a fun, light-hearted anime.

The show follows a young witch-in-training named Atsuko “Akko” Kagari, who’s dreamed of becoming a witch ever since seeing her idol Shiny Chariot perform when she was a child. As Akko heads to Luna Nova Magical Academy for her first year, she makes two close friends in the shy Lotte Hanson and sarcastic Sucy Manbavaran.

Little Witch Academia follows the exploits of these three friends and the other girls at Luna Nova. They attend classes, unravel magical mysteries, meet mythical creatures, and discover the truth about bringing magic back to the world proper.

The focus on school elements certainly give off a kind of Harry Potter vibe, while the phenomenal animation from Studio Trigger adds some real personality and style.

Akko and the others are all fun, well-defined characters and for the most part each episode presents a new mystery or theme, with overarching stories weaving in throughout the season.

Little Witch Academia is another fantastic show from Studio Trigger, and while it’s much more light-hearted than their previous works, it’s just as engaging.

Attack on Titan (Season 2)

Best Anime 2017 (Must Watch Anime)

Attack on Titan’s first season took its anime viewers on an emotional rollercoaster and didn’t hesitate to get the tears flowing on the very first episode.

Everything about this anime prepared you for the reality that nobody was safe, the secrets would never stop pouring in and every encounter with these bizarre giants was sure to cause some sort of complication with your blood pressure.

Season 2 is no different. From the very beginning, yet again, the series refuses to hold back. Attack on Titan comes back with more stunning visuals, that same hair raising soundtrack, and a narrative that will never let you feel comfortable. And we mean that in the best way possible.

If you missed out on the first season, however, you certainly don’t want to jump into the fray here.

Now is the perfect time to marathon the first season and keep the thrills going right into season two.
