Release That Witch (放开那个女巫) Manhua Review

anime nomi release that witch featured image

A review of Release That Witch which is also known as Fang Kai Na Ge Nu Wu. It is an Isekai manhua created by author Er Mu and illustrated by artist Yuewen Manhua. It is definitely not what I expected it to be, however, it is still pretty good and while I am not too much of a fan of harem graphic novels… this one gets a pass! Anna is best girl and you can’t change my mind!

This manhua has some pretty interesting characters and the storyline itself quite reminds me of the Solo Glitch Player minus the fact the protagonist is in a virtual MMO. The art style is also pretty good and the way the panels sit is very nice.

What Is Good About Release That Witch (放开那个女巫)


So far the storyline has been fairly good and I like the jokey side of things. However, it’s clear the main protagonist has the best intentions when it comes to what he is doing. I cannot wait to read further and see how this progresses.

Art Style

I have to say, the art style is really good. I cannot wait to see more of it down the line as it’s bound to only improve!


So far the main protagonist and Anna are my favourite characters, I can definitely see them having a good relationship down the line. But time will tell!

What Is Bad About Release That Witch (放开那个女巫)


So from the initial prologue that I read… it seemed like this manhua was fairly harem orientated, reading on it – it definitely looks to be that way. I personally am not that much of a fan of harems and find it more annoying than the actual isekai genre… does that mean I won’t read on? No, but I hope it doesn’t turn into a Sword Art Online harem!

Overall Conclusion

Overall everything is great besides the harem, I am looking forwards to reading some more!
