The Witch and the Beast
Volume 1


In a fantasy world, there exist witches capable of curses nearly impossible to remove except by very few methods: receive a loving kiss from a prince, hope the wrathful witch has a change of heart, or attempt a third possibility.

Guideau and Ashaf are an unusual duo working for the Order of Magical Resonance, an organization that deals with any case related to magic. Guideau, a young woman with the eyes of a beast and a knack for rushing into things head-on, has a deeply personal grudge against witches. Ashaf, a refined yet enigmatic man who carries a coffin on his back, keeps his partner in check with a calm manner and presence of mind. Together, they investigate magical mysteries and crimes, all while looking for the witch who cursed Guideau.

The pair arrive in a city where they have heard a witch resides; however, much to their surprise, the people of the city consider the witch to be a hero protecting them. Both Guideau and Ashaf believe that only trouble follows a witch wherever she goes—but that remains to be seen here.

I will no longer be ablé to read subpar stories. The art, the story, the characters, the world, all 10/10. One of the best stories I have ever read. Truly a masterpiece. It would be a mistake not to read this, but if you do just know you will never be able to enjoy mid manga ever again as your expectations will rise for quality with this work. Once your eyes have gazed on this beautiful art, they will bleed at the average drawings in most mangas. You will thirst for epic action scenes so crazy to ...

Preliminary (58/58 eps)
Sad example when the author has no idea where he wants to go with a story. Or does not communicate this to the reader at all. It is sad because the arcs themselves are pretty good. But the lack of any logical connection between them and negligible interaction between main antagonist and protagonist leave you with a meaningless aftertaste after reading the story.

First we had an actual witch hunt with flashy battles (the anime adapted it pretty well). Then, out of nowhere, the story teleports to vampire lands with loredump justifications as to how this is possible. The protagonist's powers are effectively sealed from that ...
