Witch Hunter

This is a fine series. The main character isn't almighty nor is he a justice-freak. You could even consider him a swindler. A swindler of the rich and his fellow Witch Hunters, that is. Money is his second priority, just after hunting down a certain witch. Unlike what has been mentioned before, the main character isn't an orphan because he still has a mother. And naturally he has a rival in the form of an earlier student of his teacher. It's "shounen" after all.

What's really intriguing isn't his background, because that's all pretty much explained. What keeps me reading is finding out the extent of his powers as well as the purposes of the witches following his actions, combined with the shocking revelation of what his supporter possibly is. The manhwa isn't too complicated, seeing as it IS a Shounen type and not a Seinen.

He isn't a super character by any means. To date, he's technically lost 4 out of 6 battles, and nearly died an even greater amount of times, usually saved by a certain witch or his faithful supporter. I think the author purposely gave him glaring faults as a compromise for his overall strength in comparison to his peers (A Desert Eagle >.>wink. Sometimes these faults are exaggerated and then forgotten later (Such as his greed).

Overall, this is a good manhwa. While I wouldn't say it's a must-read, I would recommend it, mostly to other people like me who can read the RAWs. Meep works a bit slow on this, with 11 chapters released in a few years, when there are over 7 volumes out.

Love this manhwa.
Its creativity of combining the Arthurian times along with the Wizard of Oz, witch hunters and witches had made this manhwa very interesting as well as the psychological aspects and personal life of each characters. Very unique, very entertaining~

Their past is not shown how
the protagonist sister became a witch
but it creates a mystery effect!

the comedy is nice
specially the facial expression
abilities of the character were
well varied and their techniques
were kinda cool!

This is one nice manga
read it and enjoy!

Characters: 8/10 They're likable and original enough to not feel cliched. Tasha is smarter and more mature than your average shounen lead, and Halloween is a bit of a tsudere character yet still makes for a very likeable female lead.

Art: 9/10 Clean, bold, stylized, and modern. Lots of textures and movement; you can tell that the artist really loves what he does.

Story: 6/10 Very shounen. Teenage boy travels places and fights people in search of something. I'm still hoping that there'll be a little more depth but... Well if you like that kind of thing (which I happen to *sigh*) than you'll love it.

All and all I'm really enjoying it, though it's got it's downfalls, it's really a fun read. If you like manga like D.Gray-man, Soul Eater, or Hitman Reborn than you'll probably like this. The good humor, interesting art, and appealing characters make up for the lack of a totally original storyline. Overall I recommend it.

After reading these comments I believe most people here don't know the difference between plagiarism and parodies/allusions/homage.
A shame really. Despite the fact that the author is quite open about the influences of other works too. Please think about it. This manwha starts with a trio that does a Jet Stream Attack (Gundam reference). And there are so many other references as correctly pointed out by others. But do you really think the author would plagiarise some of the most famous fictional works so blatantly and think he would get away with it and that nobody would ever notice? NAY. He never had any intention whatsoever to do that.
If you call this plagiarism then you might as well say Simpsons plagiarises too. Please don't be so ignorant. And claims like that won't do justice to this exciting manwha.

Alright so this was being printed in english as Witch Hunter and I bought each as they were published but then it suddenly stopped. Apparently they will begin a completely new printing under the name Witch Buster just curious if anyone knows the reason for the change. This series is absolutely amazing with all the right intense and hilarious moments to always keep you coming back. This reprinting is totally setting back my collection.

People criticizing have an incorrect definition of what plagiarism is. If you are looking for character development that is poorly executed then read something else. Someone here also said that it is too much like Naruto. That is an utter lie. It is not saturated with useless and meaningless conversation in battle like Naruto. It does not deviate from the storyline as previously stated, since all you are given is that the protagonist is trying to find his sister and their is a conflict going on. The depth given to the protagonist comrade is amazing. It does not let you feel what Naruto does, and that is that the majority of the characters are fill-ins, it makes them feel as important as the protagonist all in all it is beautifully crafted.

I like how in this manhwa is quite honest and doesn't make the characters perfect and gives them flaws, like others have said it is alot like D.Gray-man, but not as good (I think). It moves very fast and often needs abit of rereading to grasp the plot and it has twists ect. But all together it's quite good.

What's original these days, anyway? Everything's been done, and Witch Hunter is no exception - it's unoriginal material at its best, though.

I genuinely enjoyed Witch Hunter. It has its laugh-out-loud moments, and I think the writing is excellent. It's reminiscent of the writing of Joss Whedon with its combination of drama, humor, and strong characters.

In fact, the characters might be the best thing about this series. Despite the fact that they're usually introduced humorously, the characters are always well-established and deal with drama with realistic gravity. We discover very quickly that they certainly aren't paragons of heroism. Many of them are selfish, but you don't dislike them for it. The characters aren't clear about their feelings or each other's; they lose their temper with each other and themselves - despite their strength, they become frustrated with their weakness in the face of crisis. I very much like these kind of developments. The plot itself may waver sometimes, but for the most part, it's solid thanks to the characters.

WH's greatest strength may be its greatest weakness, though. I personally don't see why you wouldn't like to see minor characters fleshed out. I certainly enjoyed the three brothers' story. But I guess that's the problem with WH - when audiences are motivated to pick up a series solely for its characters, audiences usually pick ONE character. And so when the plot moves away from that one character, you lose interest in the series until Tasha, I mean, that character comes back.
