Yeah sure, this manhwa is pretty interesting. The only big fault with it I can think of, is that i focuses toooooooo much on minor characters like the 3 brothers. It help building the universe, and sets the story, but there are so many meaningless fights... I liked the flash backs, but when they started to fight again and used over 10 chapters on a single fight that was only "I yell at you for X reason" "its all your fault because Y happend". I get frustrated everytime the story goes away from the main character and his supporter, and you can feel a lot of the chapters after the Britain arc are just filler chapters with meaningless fights. If you like meaningless dragged out fights this is the series for you.

I've heard a lot about this manwha "stealing" content from other mangas etc, but thats just stupid yeah sure alot of it look alike. BUT that doesn't make it plagiarism, how many series these days have 100% pure original content? the answer is close to zero.

I think my view will change over the course of the manwha, but as of this moment I'm frustrated on the pace of the story. If you can look past all my critic, this manwha is pretty OK. The story is interesting, the world is ok, and the MC is good. If you like shounen series set in the "Middle Ages" type of world with magic and shit, you should try this. It migth start out as boring, but after a while it starts to get better, then it deviates from it's main path and oh well.

ps: as of today when I write this the current chapter is 73.

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.

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.

Plagerism?

you cant really call a story line plagiarised cause after such a history of story telling, every story has already been done pretty much. youd be considered a prodigy if you can think of a story line which has not been done before. the quality of a plot, especially for mangas/manwha's is the development of character

I like this story, definetly not my favorite though.

Im not mad at tthis author for plagarisizing.... I think that most stories borrow something from something else, just because It looks the same doesnt mean anything. I think those scenes that were pointed out have been done in many other mangas, stories, and novels in general.
I think we should lay off a littlle... at least we have another manga to read that we enjoy.

Sooo. . . I thought how much this was like D. Gray man, cause of the whole organization hunting down people who are out to destroy the world. . . and so I went and googled witch hunter manwha plagiarism (exact words) and what I found shocked me.

Fullmetal Alchemist, Star Wars, Lord of the Ring, D. Gray Man, Berserk, DOGS, and Bleach were all victim to Witch Hunter's plagiarism. There were scenes taken from EACH (including Star Wars and Lord of the Ring) and put into Witch Hunter. Of course they were changed, but not by much.

If you don't believe me so far, how about when Tasha was unable to use his gun during battle? What happened to Ed in FMA while fighting Envy in lab 5? Or perhaps when Aria left Tasha to go with Varete? Did Rukia leave dying Ichigo to go with her brother? Keep reading.

I have read FMA and Bleach, and I have also watched Star Wars and Lord of the Ring. I was appalled at not noticing it myself.

I found this at http://forum.onemanga.com/showthread.php?t=91178
It was very. . . convincing. . . I am now going to cry. . . second good book this year to be found out to be plagiarized (both have Star Wars elements).

Too much like naruto

The whole shounen genre is plagued with some serious problems. The lack of a coherent story and the focusing on the side characters to flesh out a storyline. It also has the problem of having long drawn out battles and the whole calling out names of moves issue. Some few shounen series do it right and avoid these problems but this one is not one of them.
First this story does have a decent storyline but it always gets sidetracked and changes the direction of the flow so as to add in more interesting little things that can be used to help the author to figure out where he is going with it. Many of the characters are interesting and are fun to see, but then in an effort to draw out the story more he adds more characters and more side issues into the mix so as to make it possible for him to keep writing. The story really has a problem making sense, and that creates more problems in the future.
I guess you could call this manga a battle manga and there are only so many new ultimate moves that you can pull out before your characters start becoming absurd. Of course like any of the other battle mangas example being Naruto, Bleach, ect... we have an issue of long drawn out battles that detract from the actual story. I guess if I was looking for an actual story in a manga I should probably look elsewhere then in a shounen manga, but I have been lucky before to find a good storyline in shounen. Oh well, guess I will try some other genre out again.

Multiple odd cases of plagirism.   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

It's odd I tell you. In one of the early chapters (around vol 2 I think) there's one page of a castle/citadel drawn that looks ridiculously similar to Cirith Ungol from Peter Jackson's lord of the rings...even the angle of the picture looks exactly like the camera shot in the film! An another odd case is in chapter 9 pg 44...who do those three guards remind you of? (hint: Star wars universe) what's up with these out-of-place refrences?

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.
