Coco loves magic--ever since she was given a little picture book. It's only when a carriage needs to be repaired that she sees an actual witch cast a spell. It's all about drawing. It's not a picture book; it's a spell book. Ordinary people can't be witches, but they can't erase her memory. For some reason the witches need her, and there's a mystery about who the guy was who gave her the book. It's cute. ( )

a captivating start into a series, i got into my car right after finishing reading it to buy the second volume (also the art? beautiful) ( )

A refreshing coming of age story of a young witch that is decidedly unlike Harry Potter. The characters are expressive and likeable. The world is unique and imaginative. The artwork is carefully crafted and framed with art nouveau flourish. The charactersr and architecture are an uncanny tribute to Studio Ghibli's early works. Truly a leg above most shojo manga. Recommended. ( )

Coco has been fascinated by magic since she was a little girl and bought a picture book about magic - but witches are born, not made, and unfortunately, Coco was not born with the gift for magic. She just promised her mom she would give up on her dream to become a witch when she meets Qifrey, a mysterious, traveling magician. After finding out the real truth behind magic, Coco discovers her dream of being a witch is now within her reach. But a misfortunate event happens when she tries and now she's become an apprentice of Qifrey to hopefully learn how to undo what's been done.

I saw this as a recommendation for those who love the Disney Channel show "The Owl House" and I've got to say, I absolutely love this. It's adorable and I fell in love with Coco; such a strong will young girl. Even when she has her doubts, she gives herself a little pep talk and she's back at it again.

Very similar to Owl House, where the main character, a human named Luz, draws in order to use magic, the witches in Witch Hat Atelier do the same - though a bit more complicated. My understanding though is that the two medias (Owl House and Witch Hat Atelier) stand completely on their own.

The artwork is amazingly and beautifully presented in this manga. Nothing was ever too muddy to look at. Even in black and white I could tell just how amazing the world looked.

Though the whole 'roommate doesn't like the new arrival' thing is a bit overused, I like that Agott isn't completely against Coco. Even if she tries to send Coco out to do something she's not quite ready for just to try and prove a point... I'm curious to see how their relationship turns out further down the line. ( )
