(by goodreads.com)Witch Hunter is an all new shonen fantasy manga series in the vein of Soul Eater and Full Metal Alchemist, presented in two-volumes-in-one omnibus format. Seven Seas will release the entire action-packed series across six low-priced omnibus editions.
In a world where witches have declared war against humanity, the surviving human population has gathered specialists with the power to hunt and destroy witches.
Tasha Godspell, also known as the “Magic Marksman,” is one of the best Witch Hunters there is. Along with his sword-wielding Jack-o’-Lantern partner known as Halloween, Tasha puts his magical training and weaponry to good use, in his constant battles against witches. And yet, he cannot bring himself to fully hate the very witches he is tasked to destroy
My Review: To be fair to the review, I see the similarity to Soul Eater (which is the most amaze-ball series ever) but to FMA? (Full Metal Alchemist which is also phenomenal) no way. I’m sorry I just don’t see the connection to FMA at all. I have to admit I thought this was the more boring version a soul eater until the second half of the omnibus so lol basically volume 2. I really like how not all witches are evil in this Manga or Manhwa. The characters are interesting and I did grow to like the story more and more I just wish it hadn’t tried so hard to be funny in the first volume because it didn’t need to. Once the story line got series (aka when Tasha and his sister reconnect) things get waaaaaay better.
Overall Review: 5/7 5 because the second half saved it
