Aside from the fact that Tasha Godspell screams Allen Walker, these two shounen series share a similar feel in a sense that both contain a considerable amount of badassery, humor, and an interesting gothic storyline.
To be honest, the reason why I picked up Witch Hunter was because the main character, Tasha Godspell, reminded me of Allen so much. I later learned that he was in fact designed after him.
Witch Hunter, like D.Gray-Man, focuses on an organization that aims to get rid of an evil. The character designs are very similar as are the ideas of unique weaponry for each person. While reading the series, you feel like you are reading another version of D.Gray-Man, only with a greedy, more selfish version of Allen Walker.
Naive yet fiercely loyal and moral boy is fighting against "evil," yet can't truly bring himself to hate this "evil," as he soon comes to find that there is good and bad no matter which side he is fighting for, and that it all ultimately boils down to the fact that we are all still human.
Expect to find good development of side characters, shonen-esque art, classic (though sometimes a bit mary-sue) fights, and struggles to become stronger for one's friends.
The main character of "Witch Hunter" (Tasha Godspell) is in certain ways similar to the main character of "D.Gray-man" (Allen Walker).
Both Allen and Tasha are swindlers and they are whited haired. They both work for a certain organisation, Allen for the "Dark order" (Established in order to hunt down demons) and Tasha for "WH" (Witch Hunters). Allen does not seem to hate the demons so he only tries to free their souls and Tasha, unlike most other witch hunters never kills a witch because he dislikes the idea of murdering them.
In later chapters in D.Gray-man it would appear the "Dark order" is using the powers of demons for assistance and the "WH" organisation has some witches working for them from the very first chapters. I can easily say that who ever likes "Witch Hunter" will without a doubt enjoy reading "D.Gray-man" and the other way around. read more
The concept behind Soul Eater and Witch Hunter has a similar theme involving an organization of people with special talents along with their partners. Such, expect some character dynamics and relationships being explored throughout both series.
There is action for both series in which the world functions quite different when compared to our own in terms of battles/wars. Rather than having advanced technologies though, their settings plays on a more fantasy theme.
Comedy is also present throughout both series accompanied by humorous dialogues in the form of character interactions.
Both involve the concept of witches, but witch hunter is more of superpower'd humans vs witches while soul eater is shinigamis vs witches. They both have multiple protagonists and show their own perspective in each chapter. Also Death the kid in soul eater resembles Tasha in witch hunter , as they both use guns and have "partners".
North, South, East, West. In both mangas, there are four big shot bad guys that dominate each of the four sides of the globe, and they all act independent of each other. There is also one organization whose primary focus is to take down these big shot bad guys, as well as their loyal yet powerful subordinates, and protect the ordinary people at the same time. In Claymore, the bad guys are Yoma. In Witch Hunter, the bad guys are witches. Also, both mangas seem to make a significance in gender in that it is relevant to the premise of power. In Witch Hunter, obviously, only women become witches. Similarly, in Claymore, generally only women can become claymore. Claymore are also known as the "Silver Eyed Witches". Although this is a vague comparison, it does imply certain gender limitations on the male side, primarily in that men cannot directly use the witches' power. In either case, both claymore and witches are regarded as a stigma in society and are shunned by normal people. read more
From the surface, both manga doesn't seem too similar. However, both Claymore and Witch Hunter shares many similarities.
In fact, both series takes place in a fantasy like setting where technology doesn't seem to be modern but instead gives off that feeling of natural fantasy. Claymore follows more of a dark fantasy like setting though with more violence and gore. Witch Hunter on the other hand keeps up with its more traditional tone.
From both series, there's a background involving various battles from factions. Each faction controls their own domain and hopes to gain the upper edge throughout their series.
The main female protagonist from both series are also tough. Then, there's the aspect of a race existent in both series that serves as the primary factors that drives the story. The female character also plays more of a dominant role and there's plenty of action delivered throughout the volumes. read more
Two of the main-story related characters, Tasha and Natsu relate with very similar characteristics and personalities, especially their ability to grow stronger through their emotions, and they both have a partner whom they share a close relationship, like a close family.
The main teams consist of a group that have known each other for a long period of time, at times being quite crude and violent with one another (Almost everytime, this is for comedic purposes), but in each group, the team are as close as family, willing to protect each other with their lives.
[PS: If you haven't read Fairy Tail, then I would recommend that you read Witch Hunter first. It's better to start off with the serious/moderately comedy, then heading for epic/highly comedic.] read more
Taking place in a fantasy world, Fairy Tail and Witch Hunter uses concept of magic as a prominent theme. The main characters possesses supernatural abilities that enables them to fight their foes. And throughout both series, the main characters encounter dangerous adversaries. There are various guilds/teams in both series with a large cast of characters. Some of the featured arcs/story elements also pits these teams together in battle. Witch Hunter has more of a war-time like atmosphere while Fairy Tail crafts an adventurous story. But despite this, I'd recommend both if you're a fan of fantasy fiction.
The concept of witches become a pivotal point for both series. In fact, magic is a major form of art that is practiced as a way to fight both offensively and defensively. Witch Craft Works and Witch Hunter revolves around a story with supernatural elements. The main character get into conflict with the witches as they learn more about them while discovering untold secrets in their worlds. Although their settings contrast, both series provides insight on the MC's development over the course through experience in battle. Relationships are also fleshed out that concentrates on a variety of emotions for both series.
Both are about witches as the clue is in the titles, both mangas are about the struggle for world power or domination between the different groups of witches and how the male protagonists come in to play in all this. Both protagonists harbour great powers which helps to make them the most dangerous/deadliest which is why some witches will support them and others will oppose them.
These two manga actually belong to very different categories. But I feel like that in both manga the protagonist try to fight against impossible fate under a certain belief. Both manga have epic fighting scenes (and both have really slow updates ~).
Both have similar main characters, because they are both boys that are accompanied by a crow in Cavalier of the Abyss and in Witch Hunter a pumpkin doll.
Both want their childhood friend, that also is a girl, and is on the enemy's side and play a big part like main character also due.
Even though Witch Hunter and Naruto are about two completely different supernatural entities, the themes presented in both mangas are similar. They deal with the value of relationships, the mental frailty presented in humans, the unbiased cruelty people can present, and the ambiguous nature of an enemy. The death of humans become a prominent tragedy in the protagonists of both mangas but they are both forced to get past this and become better people as a result of this. Both of the manga focus much of the character development on the central characters, but it doesn't make the mangas any less good. Witch Hunter and Naruto deals with the sense of duty a person must make to its village/government even with the hidden darkness. The characters are often forced into situations that force them to choose between themselves or a person close to them.  read more
Witch Hunter is kind of similar to Tactics due to the characters.
The main Character loves money, and they worry alot about expenses (Tasha/Kantarou) but both chooses not to kill what they meant to kill (Tasha - Witches, Kantarou - Youkais) They don't kill them but instead try to help. both main characters always goes around with a guardian at their side (Tasha - Halloween, Kantarou - Haruka) The main character partly has the same personailty traits. Their guardians (Haruka and Halloween) both consider to have a past they dont remember of know. Also both of them consider their master's well...yea. But they end up thinking that they arent that bad...Also they somewhat has a certain person liking them or just friends, (Halloween - Lancelot, Haruka - Sugino)The main characters gets scowled at by someone (Tasha - pretty much alot of the ppl in WH, Kantarou - Youko) The main characters have an advisor...(Tasha - Linda, Kantarou - Reiko) not to mention they both tend to give off a really dark related aura to people... read more
Both main characters go on a journey to find someone while fighting with guns of power (magic). In both stories the main characters have a type of cute fighting assistant. The drawings have some similarity. The plots are both interesting; in Letter Bee he fights monsters as he journeys to find his lost friend, in Witch Hunter he fights witches as he tries to hunt down his witch-turned sister. Both characters posses unique powers that they grow into as the story moves forward.
Both main characters are similar as they are both quite short and easily get on peoples nerves.There personalitys are quite similar also with the way they act and talk. They are both organisations fighting against something (withches for Witch Hunter and monsters in Dragon Eye) they both have a similar feel to them.
Both of these great manga include good art and illustrations and an interesting story and plot.
Both Heroines are trying to protect their sister from a harsh life. While Tasha in Witch Hunter is trying to save his sister, from the clutches of the evil witches. In Mother Keeper it is a fantasy like WH, involving guns and death, where they strive to be together, but fighting a world against them.
They're are various things in common in the story if you look deep enough, however Mother Keeper only has bout 6 chapters out.
Both mangas are action oriented and take place in a magical world setting. The main character in each series controls and fights along side of a puppet/supporter that was given to them by someone else.
