Witch Hat Atelier is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kamome Shirahama. It has been serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Morning Two magazine since July 2016, with its chapters collected into thirteen tankobon volumes as of February 2024.

By July 2024, the manga had over 5.5 million copies in circulation.

Kodansha describes the plot of the manga as:

A beautifully-illustrated story about a girl who longs for magic in her life and learns that, on the inside, she already is what she wishes she could be. Reminiscent of Studio Ghibli, this lushly drawn story was voted one of the Top 10 manga of the year in 2018 by the Japanese manga industry. In a world where everyone takes wonders like magic spells and dragons for granted, Coco is a girl with a simple dream: she wants to be a witch. But everybody knows magicians are born, not made, and Coco was not born with a gift for magic. Resigned to her un-magical life, Coco is about to give up on her dream to become a witch … until the day she meets Qifrey, a mysterious, traveling magician. After secretly seeing Qifrey perform magic in a way she’s never seen before, Coco soon learns what everybody “knows” might not be the truth, and discovers that her magical dream may not be as far away as it may seem …
