We find Qifrey Embroidered herbsAs we return to Witch Hat Atelier he is ensconced within the tools of his craft on the title page. He is at peace, and why wouldn’t he be? We often view practice as a burden or chore. However, mastery is only possible through practice. And mastery is the source for confidence, self-knowledge and self-determination. In a world that often separates our efforts from the results we achieve, and where modern society’s interconnected complexity robs us tangible accomplishments, mastering a craft can help us reconnect to the world on a more honest, immediate level. What’s more, it is like the cradle in which Qifrey is suspended – it provides us shelter and security made of our own hands, the skills that no changes in external fortune can steal from us. When we have nothing else, we still have all that we’ve learned – through practice and mastery, we make a hearth of our hearts, a smith of our hands, a library of our minds, and an atelier of our bodies, our burnished instruments working in marvelous unison.
Qifrey’s confidence is clear as he counters his opponent’s approach with a ritual of his own. A steady lengthening of panels across the top half of the page emphasizes his mastery; as he speaks to his students the magic spreads unbidden, the extension of the panels echoing the spell’s intrusion into the mundane world. Qifrey himself is unbound, floating beyond the panels much like his ethereal power sets him beyond his students – he is a conductor of the visual frame, his confidence reified by the sharp jolt of the traditional square panel at the bottom. It is a period in the composition that commands the reader to look at Qifrey directly, to meet his gaze and not to goggle at the hands. Through these tools, Kamome Shirahama conducts the reader’s focus with as much skill as Qifrey commands his magical instruments.
Shirahama’s skill is equally apparent in Qifrey’s subsequent feint, the paneling emphasizing the momentum of his actions. In this instance, the tilt of panels echoes the momentum that Qifrey is creating by first dipping the robe in water, then freezing it, and then hurling it desperately at his enemies. The rightward tilt in the first panel reflects the cresting and folding of the cloth as it rises. Then, before it can collapse, it is made rigid and drawn towards him, an effect echoed by the middle panel drawing upwards towards Qifrey’s yanking hand above. Finally, the motion is completed with the cape billowing out in the wake of Qifrey’s pull, a transformation echoed by the third panel’s larger width and continuing tilt. The end result is a complicated motion executed with both clarity and visual momentum, allowing the audience to feel the weightless rise of the cape, the moment it is caught by Qifrey’s tug, and the way it expands like a sail behind him.
And Shirahama’s talents are not limited simply to a grace of paneling. Tetia’s negotiations with these gold-encrusted victims of mages past speaks to the truth of the last volume’s central focus, the necessity of practicing even things you don’t find immediately interesting, of exploring beyond your preferred focus within a discipline. As is so often the case, the proof of Shirahama’s lessons is expressed through the triumph of her own craft: in this case, how the designs of these forsaken soulsTheir memories are influenced by the woodworking and traditional sculpture. Shirahama may have been able convey these moments purely using aesthetic forms drawn from the manga, but Witch Hat Atelier is less precise and evocative of live sculpture. The more you learn and the more you draw inspiration from, the more you will embrace tools and traditions in building your own atelier. Your work will be more vibrant and meaningful.
It is important to note that this applies to both narrative and visual art. These golden prisoners use a lyrical style of speech and a traditional riddle. You are not doing yourself a disservice by sticking to the genres and forms that you naturally enjoy.

When asked to identify the most crucial thing that these trapped souls have been denied, Coco answers with “peace.” It’s an answer that seems to imply wisdom beyond her years – an understanding that just as the process of mastery is a continuous, restless wheel, so must our larger journeys rise through pandemonium and resolve in oblivion, allowing the next generation to continue the work of sculpting our world. Coco is able, through her warming glyph to end the suffering of these trapped souls, but is still too young to understand that this is a tragic outcome. Because these apprentices know so much about magic and their own selves, they are unable to comprehend the weight of the future or the intolerable certainty that comes with it. The process of attaining such knowledge is similarly the work of a lifetime – and to a child, the idea of cherishing a final goodbye is unthinkable.
It is true that the stubbornness of childhood can be useful. As a flashback to four years ago reveals, Riche’s proud confidence in her own perspective was her only defense against her first, tyrannical teacher, a man who delighted in cowing his students into precisely mimicking his methods. To her brother Ririfin, Riche’s quiet rebellion, her insistence on sneaking her own glyphs into the margins of her work, was a vital source of comfort. Giving students the space to express themselves and nurture their passions is just as important as teaching them the correct forms and formulas – and when students are denied that space, only the most passionate or confident among them will survive. It is a crime to rob a student of the passion they have for learning. However, many teachers see their students more as an extension of themselves, and not as distinct bright lights that can be guided or encouraged but must ultimately find their way forward.
We can only hope that unhappy students will eventually find guidance in other places, whether it is through a new instructor or the encouragement of peers. In the end, Riche’s examination of Eunie’s keystone provides a fresh solace, as she realizes how Eunie adjusted the standard arrangement to account for his own shaking hands. Our passion for creation and personal growth can be stamped out by thoughtless instructors, but like Riche’s notes in the margins and Eunie’s distinctive glyphs, all we need is the smallest amount of wiggle room to retain and nurture our own identities. Riche did not make a mistake when she rebelled against her teacher. Although his mistreatment hampered her ability to learn new ideas and methods of magic, she was correct to take her own style to Qifrey. Riche has discovered that the things that define how we see the world don’t disappear when we learn new skills. “Within the book, hidden between the lines, your personal touch will never leave.” We need not carefully guard our own identity within our work; though our approaches will naturally shift as we accumulate new tools, no matter how much our style changes, our identity will remain ensconced within it.
Riche tries to maintain her artisanal fashion, while others express the feckless youth with a less prickly attitude. As Coco and Agate lament Eunie’s transformation, Tetia banishes their somber thoughts with her declaration that three heads are better than one, and that with their minds combined they’ll surely find a way to save their friends. Her confidence isn’t just a way to cheer up her friends. She can be a powerful force for young mage and artisans. While we must move forward with humility regarding all the things we don’t know, we must simultaneously possess confidence that we The following is a list of the most popular ways to contact usWe will only succeed if we know and understand them. Your skills will stagnate if you lack self-confidence. You won’t be able to grow past your own self-defeating perceptions of your abilities.
Sometimes, the only way to move forward is to let confidence precede understanding. Rather than immediately seeking a perfect solution, Tetia suggests that “let’s come up with a plan. We’ll decide if it’s any good or not afterwards.” You must not allow yourself to fall into stasis, paralyzed by your inability to immediately grasp perfection. Iteration is the essence of study, and study is the road to improvement – try boldly, fail with a smile on your face, and try again. After all, it’s always easier to critique than it is to create – so create quickly and without regret, that you might then ramble onwards to the easy part.
Spurred onwards by Tetia’s confidence, the trio break their “impossible” task down into a series of discreet, manageable tasks, demonstrating again how the “magic” of creation can always be made coherent through study and compartmentalization. Although this is the essence of mastery and their results are as true to themselves as Riche could wish for, it is still a process that can be mastered. Even your fears and regrets ultimately inform your aesthetic or artisanal identity – just as Riche learned to master small spells in order to avoid her teacher’s censure, so has Coco spent long hours considering how magic might be undone, to save her mother.
With their master’s tutelage and youthful confidence to sustain them, not even the Brimhats can thwart Qifrey’s pupils. Embodying both the confidence her teachers have nurtured and the brilliant arrogance of adolescence, Coco pushes back against the Brimhats’ offers of salvation, saying “no matter what you want from me, what I draw will be something I decide myself. And I myself will learn how amazing and terrifying magic can be!” For Eunie, Riche, and all other students suffering under the yoke of oppressive instructors, Coco’s words ring as a defiant rallying cry, a declaration that her passion is greater than her ignorance, that students must be free to find their own stumbling way forward. Apprenticeship is about a partnership. A great teacher is invaluable, but the audacious confidence that youth has is also worth mentioning.
