Manga and anime often have a problem with normalising sexual assault, so to read a manga that not only includes a trigger warning and tells you which page to go to to skip the sexual violence, but also treats the whole topic with seriousness and support for victims is such a relief. In a sea of sexist boundary-breaking ecchi content, even in manga that is primarily a different genre than ecchi, Witch Hat Atelier is a safe harbour.

Shirahama-san has managed to create a diverse fantasy world with a central moral conflict (magic and the laws limiting its use) and moral ambiguity and I'm excited to see where she will take us.
