Description
Witches suddenly declare war against humans, causing two-thirds of the world to fall apart.

They summon monsters called "Supporters" and devastate human residences but why?

Problems with this series:

- The history drags on;
- The chapters were downsized from 60 pages to 13 (?!); *
- One of the "extra" characters got "author's pet" status for more than 40 (!!!) chapters;
- The objectives / focus of all the characters seem to go back and forth all the time;
- Style over content (there is good content, but it is "trope heavy" and volatile);
- Everyone is "snarky" (well, thats a trope on Korean fiction, so... yeah);
- You will get tired of the same contrived smiles over and over again, even if they are well drawn.

EDIT:
* One kind soul explained to me that the chapter size changed because the translation group went from volume scans to magazine scans; seems that some chapter cliff-hangers don't actually exist on the "final product", too.

Even with a load of bad points, some concepts are pretty darn interesting (even if borrowed from other places) and well worth a look, for they end up being well developed. The main character is extremely likeable too, even if the same can't be said about his sideckick and even if he ends up getting less screen time than some uninteresting or even forcefully mysterious characters from the support cast.

tl;dr - This series is flawed, but extremely entertaining.

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.

if you dont know or dont care manhwa is Korean manga and i gotta say there are many manhwa that rival and might be better that most manga and this is one of them. this manhwa has amazing art that still improves overtime, the story is really interesting and will keep you hooked and out of every thing the best things are the characters design and the fights. a lot of the main characters have a really unqiue design with a really funny personality trait, this manga really has to be one of the top (to me) in Korean manhwas. plus if you are interested in reading this please just read the first few chapters and dont listen to most of these comments, some of them can find an issue with anything (although im not saying any manga/manhwa is perfect) but this one deserves a chance as a manhwa of its own so people need to stop comparing it to other stuff

As the title says this has some decent art with some rather voluptuous drawn women. That's about it.

The plot well it's just so so. I mean it's understandable that the baddies are powerful i.e the bad witches. Although they are so ridiculously overpowered that the only way I see the good guys winning is how they've been winning so far. They let them win. Sure you get a low rung bug baddie that will get beaten but it takes almost the entire cast to beat that one bug of a bad guy. Yeah, yeah it's shounen and we can expect some out of left field insane power-ups, but still as it is now it's not clicking.

Also have to agree with the reviewer below. The author is extremely slow when telling his story. We had to painfully sit through how many chapters of the Yue clan charade? I think the author is buddies with The Breaker's author because he has the same story telling drag problem.

One of the best manga I've read. Awesome plot, nice art, good character building ^^. And I don't care about the plagarism thing. It's still a good -to-read manga.
It deserves a 10 biggrin

Another great manga i have found and read. I think it's totally awesome except for one thing: why do korean artists always have to create female characters with such huge breasts, that's really annoying

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.

to all WH fan and haters.
You see, why each of you forced every single manga or manhwa or webtoons you like must be original?
In Bakuman they say there are no manga is original, they all somehow consiously or subconsiously copy other manga (sorry i don't remember what chap is it). SO NEVER ASK ANY COMIC TO BE ORIGINAL YOU *beep*ker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ~(>3<)~

Issue of Plagarism   
Rating: N/A
by DrGullinbursti
March 31st, 2012, 1:30pm
Hi people,
so from what I can see a lot of people are bandying around the term plagarism recently in connection with this manwha. Now I bothered to look at the examples of the "plagarism" and noticed a few things that apparently a lot of you guys haven't. Okay firstly, and to me most tellingly, the "same composition" pages are faked. Someones grabbed individual panels from various pages in the manwha are realigned them so that they look like page for page copies of stuff that was done in other works. Just have a look yourself, you can see that the bottom of pages are at the top of the example pages (look at where the page number is, also just look at the different scan quality of the panels). Secondly, if the artist/author had been found to be plagerising he'd have been dropped ages ago, the original post with the "proof" is from 2008.
Lastly, there will be some definate similarities between FMA, D-Grayman, various otehr examples and Witch Hunter. They all have a psuedo european kinda medieval magical world with angsty protagonists doing similar things. Beating up monsters and doing good etc.
Oh, and honestly for the final time, some of the drawing claimed to be copies are of things that are so generic that you would find examples of them in pretty much any artistic work featuring a medieval period. Ask e to draw a castle and my castle is going to look pretty much the same as anyone drawing a "Castle"on the planet.
