The basic premise of the book is this: A nerdy girl from japan got isekai'd, and in order to return home she decided to gather all the magicians around the world together in the hopes of finding someone who knows a spell that can send her back to Japan. How does she do it? She hosts a Grimoire-Convention exactly how modern Japan would host their Comic Cons. Along the way, the convention must deal with universal threats such as heatstroke, unruly patrons, line-cutting, rabid fans, delayed authors, and other publishing-related troubles.
Refreshingly, the protagonist is not the center of the universe, and each and every character that you see will have a backstory, and each will have if not a whole chapter, then at least a single segment dedicated to them to explain who they are, why they are working with the protagonist, etc.
Since I am Asian, I can connect with some of the more obscure references in the manga, so the western audience might not enjoy A Witch's Printing Office as much as I do, but seriously, I think this manga is on a similar level as Dungeon Meshi, and definitely way better than the likes of "Dragon goes House-Hunting" and other fantasy slice of life manga. read more
