YI JIAN’s review published on Letterboxd:
Studio Ghibli has an arsenal of laughs for their characters and every single one of them is the best laugh. The film is a gentle breeze on a cool day, extremely relaxing to watch and feel, like putting your brain on a rocking chair, or in a glass jar floating on a stream of water travelling to nowhere, carried by the tender flow of a heartwarming, friendly little story -- which is just about a newbie witch who's trying her best: a reminder that you should try your best too! Hang in there! The moment for you to finally shine is just around the corner!
