Across all schools of thought and practice, whether it be in the form of manga, or music, engineering, or even psychology...all of these disciplines have a level of mastery in which all participants can achieve.
There's a certain beauty that comes from being able to express one's self in such a way that it truly becomes a different language, one that can't quite be understood from the perspective of a listener, but totally grasped by the practitioner.
From authors, to visual artists, down to video games or shows, there are thoughts or ideas brought outward that represents both a technical understanding of how things come together and a sensitivity on what works most harmoniously within the composition. Having a high sense in both areas is a form of mastery, and when you listen to your favorite artists grow with every passing album or notice that your game's sequel surpasses it's predecessor in every way, you'll know exactly what I mean when I say it is a form of magic.
That's what this episode is about, an honest conversation/love & hate letter to growth and mastery.
