In this world, witches actually exist, and they have real magic powers! Magic powers... that can be used as a productive force! The witches must be saved. Their powers must be liberated! We must open our map, fight off demons, solve the conspiracy, and climb the tree of technology!
I have read until around chapter 400, but I have read the novel until near the end, where I dropped because it was clearly going to be rushed, and there were a lot of things I didn't like. Before I say what I like about this story, I'd really like to address why I dropped the manga much earlier than the novel (which has 1500 and I've read more than 1400). There reason is something they did around said chapter 400. I'll have to spoil a little bit about the middle and end of the story, but it wasn't a plot twist actually and things naturally went that route, so you have been warned. The main villain is god. Around chapter 400 Roland hears about the War of Divine Will which is the one the humans are fighting the demons, and discovers that this war was made by god so that only one species remains. See, there is no description of god until this point in the novel, but in the manga, they decided to make an illustration of god instigating the war, with god appearing in the sky while people fight on the land. You could be thinking, "what's the problem?", the problem is the representation of god. They could choose a god of war like Ares, they could choose a trickster god like Loki, or maybe a Chinese god, but nope, this wouldn't be China's Communist Party land if they went with something so neutral. Nope, they choose Jesus. I'm not even Christian anymore and even I see it as anti-christian propaganda. And I like MGQ, which has a similar premise, with a centralized church based on the catholic church, and an evil god, along with many Christian symbols, like angels. But, it's clearly only BASED on Christian Mythology, not REPRESENTING it. So much so, that despite having female versions of Miguel and Lucifer, there's no depiction or mention of Jesus, nor Jeova. Ilias, the evil god, is actually depicted as an angel. It's very different than simply choosing the mere image of Jesus to represent an evil god, something that came out of nowhere, and has no narrative purpose. If this thing really wants to attract people in the west, they will have to censor that, because Christian gonna be pissed. That's what made me drop, but there are many things I don't like, beginning with the worst showdown ever. Seriously, Roland vs Zero is the worst showdown ever. They hinted it for so long and made that... I understand there are copyrights to keep in mind, but c'mon, that's the best they can do in that situation. And Roland does even less in the manga than in the novel, which made it even worse. There's also the bad romance, and the best girl Nightingale being left out until the end of the story. Seriously, Anna may be the first witch, but her personality is so bland, and her intelligence doesn't really convince considering her upbringing. And let's not forget the CCP influence, with populist policies being portrayed as good, and the masses being portrayed as stupid, or evil, unless they are controlled by the protagonist. The story of Hero is simply unbelievable. There's more I don't like, for example, the Dream World, and the limit of technology being WW2 instead of WW1 which would be more plausible, but this is already too long. I seriously wanted to like this manga, it has a great premise and some very good graphics... sometimes. Sometimes they don't even draw the faces, and the male characters are usually ugly. But there are so many things I don't like, that it makes it one more example of the rule "You can't make art under the CCP". Read it if you want it, but try to ignore the propaganda.
**This review only goes for chapter 1 to 80** I'll start of with my opinion about this manhwa. I have read about 3-5 manhwa's about witches but this one is a bit more unique because of the fact that the MC is actually from another world which makes it entirely different from the one's that i have read so far. There are also some common scenes but most of them are more simillar to Fantasy isekai politics and not to witches manhwa's Now I'll talk about the story (spoiler) The story is about a man that got reincarnated as a spoiled prince at a medieval age period. I know a lot of Manhwa's that has this plot, but what makes this one different is because of the situation of the MC when he got reincarnated.He was in a terrible situation and also at a huge disadvantage against his enemies.But because of the knowledge of the MC's past life he started to arise and challenge his enemies with the help of the witches. The art The art of this manhwa is really good because; first of all, it is full colored and the building's,Item's and characters are properly designed. I can say without a doubt that you would like the art style of this manhwa. Characters The character development of this story is good as it goes on. The MC starts to understand about the world he is currently in, and the witches starts to know the MC as a harmless and intsead discovers hat he is a kind Person. Overall this Manhwa is above average and I recommend this to people who likes politics in fantasy world.
Story: Surprisingly a good and unique one despite the fact that it's an Isekai. Art: I personally don't like it and find it average but I can see someone liking it. Characters: Despite a good amount of characters, all of them are pretty unique and thus easy to remember. Conclusion: Now you be wondering "If Story, Art, and Characters have good score, why is the overall lower?". The simple answer is nothing is explained. I don't mean the story the story itself is fine what i mean is the inventions. He suddenly makes something new without atleast a hint of him needing or atleast wanting it to be done. The process itself is pretty forgettable as it's literally "oh yeah we built that". Most of them doesn't even answer "Why did they build that?" Much less "How and when did they build that?", It's like it just happened which is a pretty bad thing in terms of progression.
