Balgo Ywain Parks is certain that his cute dog Osushi-chan is the perfect bait to get closer to Noel "Niiha" Niihashi, the object of his desires. Unfortunately for him, Noel is used to dealing with creatures far worse than hormone-fueled boys. As a member of the Wing Bind agency, she is highly experienced in facing dragons—mythical beasts that thrive only in the hidden underground world of Reverse London. So when a dark dragon suddenly appears in front of Balgo, Noel and her partner, Ninny Spangcole, are sent to exterminate it before it unleashes its destructive fury upon the unsuspecting London populace.

The Burn the Witch oneshot is a special pilot chapter published on July 14, 2018 before the release of the manga series. Viz Media simultaneously published its English release in the Weekly Shounen Jump on July 16, 2018.

Just kill the dude who is talking about panties all the time and it's perfect.

Honestly, he was disgusting. We don't need, or want, another Mel*odas and etc. We don't need these less-than-trash men. We're tired of it, actually.

Why can't they(mangakas) understand it? Wake up. It wasn't funny. It never was. Can you please do a character who respect women? Men can be badass and/or funny AND respect woman.
Come on Tite, you has the skills, you don't need this shit.

Reading this was so nostalgic. Everything is sooo Tite Kubo and sooooo BLEACH.
It was a good balance between Bleach's world and the one which read more

Since nobody will bother to make a fair review of this literal ONE SHOT series (emphasis on the fact that its only a single chapter).

Story: Not the most original in comparison with the rest of Bleach. Just plain fun and interesting. But I like it that way to be honest. Things synch up well and it's an interesting read. Instead of Zanpakutos the British branch has guns. I feel like this could have used in a more creative way with the pistols changing form based on the commands their given like morphing into Shotguns or LMG's.

Art: Great as ever

Characters: I liked Noel's attitude and thought read more

Where to begin with this.

First off the characters are all pretty much rehashes of Bleach characters with a new layer of paint on them. Balgo is Kon but more stupid, Spangle Ninii is a worse Tatsuki. The only good character in this is the main protagonist, and even then it's mostly subjective, because I have a soft spot for kuudere characters.

The story is set in London's Soul Society West Branch, which is similar to it's eastern counterpart, except instead of reapers you have witches and instead of hollows you have dragons. However there are some differences between the branches that I cannot say it's just read more

This was very fun to read & I like that it feels like it's own thing and doesn't build off of "Bleach" too much. What I mean is that It's a different part of the Soul Society & they are witches & not Soul Reapers. They also don't Reference Bleach a lot which is good because I hate spin-offs that corporate too much of the show it's adapted from. So from my standpoint, this was pretty good due to the art style, lively characters, fun aspects, and it's a casual story. As far as I can tell this will be very interesting to see once read more
