Description
For 820 years he had slumbered with no knowledge of mankind's advancement and scientific progress. The land which he once knew has become an unfamiliar place with new technology, attitudes, and lifestyles. Upon awakening, Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (called Rai), seeks to familiarize himself with this era. He locates a loyal servant of his, Frankenstein, who is currently the principal of a high school in South Korea. Rai decides that this school is the perfect place to help him learn about the modern world, enrolls, and begins associating with a group of good-natured students in order to 'blend in.' But this new world is no safer than the old; and the dignified, bewildered, technologically inept Rai finds himself embroiled in adventures both ridiculous and dangerous.

SOOO MEDIOCRE

I have no idea why people are giving this a 10. If you like repetitive and predictable plots, then this is the manga for you. The characters are slightly interesting, but aren't given much development unfortunately. As the series progresses, they just become bland and two-dimensional. The villains are boring with terrible motivations. They don't feel like people at all. This story is extremely shallow and uninspired. Also, I fell in love with the art in the initial chapters and it is understandable that the quality of the drawing would decline since it is a weekly series, BUTTTT, the current level of art is just way too lazy. After you've read the first two arcs, I suggest you move on to another series.

Must Read Manhwa

At first glance, Noblesse doesn't look any different when compared to other typical Shounen manga but that is certainly not true. The Manhwa itself is filled with deeps morals and integrity of humanity along with what true friendship and companionship should really be. Though the story may not be perfect, Noblesse is still a work of extraordinary virtue and valor.

Though many people tends to compare the characters of Noblesse to existing characters of other manga, I for one believe that the characters in Noblesse are quite unique in their rightful aspects. Unlike other Shounen manga Noblesse doesn't always discern with just Good v.s Evil, nor does it try to make the audience hate a character only to have them loved later on. Noblesse does a great job with the grey area between good and evil and would place that aspect into many of the characters. Good who choose to walk evil's path and evil that choose to do good.

As for the story, I won't say that it is perfect but it is definitely better than average. A lot of people say that it is repetitive but I like to see it as character growth. It is not just about the weak getting beat by the strong and evil getting conquer by good. With each battle, the past of those who are involve gets revealed to the audience. And has these past are revealed, we get closer and closer to the bigger picture. That is what I like about Noblesse. It is predictable in its nature yet unpredictable because of its uniqueness.

7/10. The highest rating that I've ever gave to a manga/Manhwa. Noblesse is not perfect and so I won't give it a 10 but it is definitely a "Must Read" in my list.

..The webtoon started out so well and had so much potential...... Even now, it's still pretty damn awesome...

but, IT IS SO REPETETIVE! The fighting element is the same thing over and over again!

weak beat strong, then loses, gets power up, beat opponent, a new opponent appears.

The story became repetitive and predictable , the art did change and the plot is the same over and over , bad guys appear they kidnap the innocent children and our heroes defeats them in all the 6 seasons , and the annoying thing is the kidnapping the children , it became a habit that maybe the authors don't know another reason to make our heroes and villains to clash .

season 6 ended and the last battle was again another kidnapping , but the thing that was different this time was
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it was Seira ,Regis and Rael in the place of the children this time lol, but still they're children too in the eyes of our heroes .

Have you ever encountered a story that you like and don't even know why? Well Noblesse falls into that category.
If anybody were to ask why you like it, or even to explain the plot, it sounds weak. "It's about this mysterious organization that experiments on people, and a really powerful guy who keeps defeating members of said organization..."
People would probably look at you weird and probably give the story a pass.
Yet, at least in my case, once I began reading it, I marathoned through it, and to be honest, if it ever becomes available in English, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
I can't truly say what is it that makes this manwha so great, but it has something that pulls you in. The characters are interesting, my favorites are pretty much the main cast of enhanced humans plus Rai.
I passed on this story so many times, but now it's one of my favorites.

My Favourite Manga!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Noblesse is my favourite manga of all time but that doesn't means it is flawless. It has flaws but then we shouldn't forget that no story is flawless. Allow me to describe its good and bad points ~

First of all, there are two types of stories. One which focuses more on plot then characte. In such stories plot is good but sadly most of the time characters are prety generic & dull.In second type of stories, characters are the main focus point rather than plot. The result being that the characters are more original & enjoyable. There is plot but not that great. Of course every story has both plot and characters but they focus on one point more than the other.

Noblesse main strength is its characters. The main protagonist is totally different from the standard shonen protagonist. He is cool, smart strong & silent. He doesn:t preaches the villains or anyone, and most of time he remains silent. You might think what's so great in this, right? Well, it's the way authors presented him. The second main character is a devoted servant who is a sadist in heart, and during the fight you would wonder who is the good guy. There are other unique & lovable characters as well. You see Noblesse focus much on the characters, their interactions, etc...

Noblesse has good action (in case of Rai it's plain massacre). There is witty humor in the fights which are serious.

The negative point of Noblesse is its somewhat repetiveness. But before you complain about this, let us remember that most of the mangas follow a certain loop to deliver plot. Let's see One Piece where the good guys arrive on an island for adventure, they find people in distress, then they sae them fron villains, and their name spreads... this pattern repeats like ten times. Most of the stories has a pattern. Nblesse is same, and its pattern being " Villains come to investigate in Korea, meets good guys, fight a battle on rooftops,... It focuses on this pattern to deliver its plot. So nothing exceptionally bad.

My only big complain is that many of the villains (not all) are generic. They boost about themselves like idiots & then die. We don't see much of their background info as well.

I recommened Noblesse to everyone who likes good characters, action and drama.

The reason I started to read this webtoon was because of it's popularity and rating..
At first, I found it really entertaining and I kept reading for many chapters..There were few characters that I really liked, but as I kept reading..it felt like....same...villains appear, the characters fight with them, they are defeated and in the next chapter/arc.. the same...It was like a repetitive cycle.. It felt like watching team rocket from Pokemon..It also felt like it was dragging for too long that I have decided to drop it because I got tired with it and it became so...boring..

It's got a little something for everyone - pretty protagonists, superhuman fighting, detailed world setup, and a sense of humor that makes me snort every time. Art has gotten more sparse and minimalist (due to artist's declining health?), but still has enough detail to hold my attention. Storyline is better when they aren't introducing random bad guys that are there just to get beaten down/show protagonist power-up (looking at you season 4).

I personally like the flashbacks, they introduce more depth to the characters, especially the baddies. Of course most of the main characters have a tragic past, but they don't beat you over the head too much with it (yet - it's getting heavier-handed in this recent arc). The human kids have receded into the background of the storyline because they're basically useless except for humanizing the superbeings, but still provide some funny moments (kind of like Bleach).

My only peeve is the fight formula is rather repetitive - someone gets into trouble (humans kids/enhanced humans), lesser nobles show up, if they can't do the trick Frankenstein shows up, if even he can't take care of it Raizel cleans the whole thing up as the super-noble. Finally in this last arc they're mixing it up and there is actually some risk for the main characters (also like Bleach!).

What really makes this stand out for me is the insertion of random gags amidst super serious plot points - nothing too obvious or crass, or out of character - always making me giggle out loud.

i don't care if some say the drawing is getting bad or that it's not detailed enough. But this webtoon is being updated every dammit week, and the mangaka has been showing time and consideration through out the all story, and you guys are bad mouthing about it!!! do you guys know how hard is it to be a mangaka? and yet most of us read it weakly for FREE and YET not being at least a bit GREATFUL? OR are you saying that you can come up with a better story well draw and that's also getting updated weekly for free? if so i take what i said BACK!

extreme pacing problems   
Rating: 7.8 / 10.0
by Jeshua
December 3rd, 2013, 6:00am
This series is weekly but I only read it once every trimester, so there is enough content to keep me happy for more than one hour. Yes, it's that devoid of content, and the infinite flashbacks (to explain things that were made crystal clear many chapters before and didn't really need to be shown/drawn), sometimes flashbacks inside flashbacks... 10+ chapters flashbacks to explain why character X behaves in Y fashion towards character Z... ...

... It's interesting after you put up with all the "let's make it longer without really adding content / advancing the plot, so that we can milk our fans a bit more and do other RL stuffs" that the creators pull on you, so I'll give it a good rating.
