Amanda O'Neill is a supporting character featured in the Little Witch Academia series.

She is voiced by Arisa Shida in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Marianne Miller in the English version of the anime.


Amanda is a tall girl who measures between 5'6" and 5'7". She has short orange hair with amaranth undertones that points upwards. Her eyebrows have the same light red color and her eyes are bright green. Her standard Luna Nova Academy uniform consists of a jacket and dark blue skirt, with buttons in the center of the same color and a white shirt below. Like her friends Constanze and Jasminka, she completes her uniform with a green sash and hatband. She wears grayish-brown sports shoes with white laces.

When not in her uniform, she usually wears a pale blue tank top, along with dark blue shorts.

Concept art that Amanda originally wore red high-top sneakers instead of grayish-brown sports shoes.


Amanda is by her own description a "rebel". An unruly and fun-loving girl, she has little respect for authority and is primarily motivated by hedonism. She has a very relaxed attitude towards her schoolwork almost to the point of apathy and takes the easy way out whenever she has the opportunity. This is both a point of practicality ("Who cares how it gets done if it gets done?") and a result of a general reticence to exert effort when there's no fun to be had in it. In cases where she considers a task to be worth her time (particularly broom flying class), she puts her utmost enthusiasm into it and she refuses to conform to anything less even when her grades depend on it ("Fly free or don't fly at all").

Amanda is very athletic, being a tomboy with a talent for acrobatics, best exhibited when she flies a broom (a talent that led Akko to ask if she wanted to be a "broom dancer" when she finished school, in response, Amanda said she hadn't thought that far in advance and just planned to have fun). She also appears to be somewhat of a kleptomaniac, as she was seen to steal both in The Enchanted Parade and "Don't Stop Me Now". While a staunch individualist, she has genuine compassion for her friends.


Amanda was born an Irish-American in New York and eventually found interest in Luna Nova. While there, she became roommates with Jasminka Antonenko and Constanze Amalie von Braunschbank Albrechtsberger. In some point prior to the Enchanted Parade movie, she was found guilty of breaking and entering; attempting to steal from Luna Nova. She has also exhibited an interest in athletics and dancing, as she's shown to be extremely agile.

Comparisons with Ryūko Matoi

It has repeatedly been shown that Amanda's character resembles Ryūko Matoi (the main protagonist of the Kill la Kill franchise which was also created by Studio Trigger) in several aspects, namely personality, appearance, and reputation as juvenile delinquents. They said that similarities are even more apparent with Amanda's hairstyle which greatly looks identical to Ryūko's when she is fully synchronized with Senketsu (albeit with orange and amaranth coloration as opposed to black and vermilion). Hilariously, as seen in three of the following images below, they are shown to have identical facial expressions.
