What Is Good About Witch Hunter (위치헌터)
Oh my goodness, the art style of the author! I really love how realistic the weaponry always looks, the character designs are very consistent and I always find myself looking forward to future Volume releases just to see the artwork in colour.
The Main Character
Let’s talk about Tasha.
For me, he is the most enjoyable part of this manhwa. I love the fact he’s an extremely flawed character with a lot of qualities to him that make him very likeable. While he IS a kind person, he does have a bad attitude and is incredible stingy, with many moments showing him scamming people out of their money. While I know a lot of people may not like this kind of character, I sometimes find myself enjoying a character with these traits.
What Is Bad About Witch Hunter (위치헌터)
Oh boy, this is probably going to make some people raise a brow. But please remember this is solely MY opinion; I am not a fan of fanservice. At all. I also happen to share this grip about the popular manga Fairy Tail too, as much as I also love that series.
Before I found this manhwa, I scoured internet forums for manga, comics and anime that were similar to D.Gray-man. I was recommended Witch Hunter by so many people so when I finally checked it out, I was extremely surprised. Although it shares SOME similarities, the story is actually quite different and VERY interesting.
If you like the fantasy-themed genre with lots of action and a fun main character to follow, then this is a must-read for you!
