What a lovely little gem!  Little Witch Academa (2013) (Netflix) is a single-episode anime from Studio Trigger (wikipedia), an up-and-comer started in 2011 that promises great things.  The cel-animation is incredible – feels like Looney Tunes was a major inspiration (along with Disney and traditional anime of course).  There’s also a sequel (Netflix) that was kickstarter-funded.

Trigger’s first full-length series is Kill la Kill (2013) (Netflix), another breath of fresh air.  Decidedly more mature (but not direly-so), its artistic styling is pure 80’s anime, directed with the frenetic, absurd blatantcy of a twelve-year-old Quentin Tarantino on a three-day binge of Red Bull and Pop Rocks.
