Manga Review: BURN THE WITCH

Burn the Witch is the latest creation from the creator of Bleach, Tite Kubo. Here in this one shot, we follow Noel Niihashi, one of the many people that are fighting to protect dragons in the street of London.

The first thing that makes Burn the Witch rather different to Bleach is the tone. Yes, the manga has some funny moments, but it’s closer to Attack on Titan than Dragon Ball in tone. Burn the Witch, on the other hand, is the reverse. It was a nice change of pace, considering what Kubo previously made.

If you are a fan of Kubo's earlier work, you will recognize it right away. Unlike a certain another manga creator, however, it is not to the point where you want to facepalm due to the laziness. The dragons that he showed had some interesting and unique designs which is nice considering how many times Dragon has been used in any form of entertainment.

The story was entertaining, and I found (for the most part) interesting enough that I would like to continue returning to their adventures.

I find myself enjoying it. It was a nice change of pace (for the most part). I liked the main character well enough that I would like to see this one-shot turning into a full-fledged manga. Especially after a specific reveal. If it does get greenlit, please kill a certain character off in the most brutal way possible.

I give this one-shot 6/10.
