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.

Exact same formula for every single arc   
Rating: 9.3 / 10.0

Noblesse has never been known to have a story with much depth. However, the simplicity of it, along with the great art and awesome displays of power, is what makes it such an enjoyable read. Unfortunately, the simple formula that they use repeatedly in every arc, although entertaining at first, gets old. I don't think I need to elaborate because anyone that reads this webtoon knows what I am talking about. It is still definitely worth a read, but do so with low expectations in plot and depth. Be ready to see some repitition!

This series is not bad--in fact, it starts out pretty well: there's just the right balance of humor and fan service (for girls), along with some decent action sequences. The main character is mysterious, and everyone is generally likable.

BUT, soon, everything becomes the same thing repeated without an end. @Moonmystery describes it pretty well. So, this manga is not that great, but it's not that bad either. Give it a try if you're bored, but don't have high expectations.

I dropped this at chapter 120. I did try very hard to keep reading cause I dont like doing things halfway, but the characters, story, art... are just mediocre at best and plot holes all over the place that makes me think this is a webtoon for children or housewives somehow. I dont even find it that funny, like sure it made you laugh a little the first time the joke was shown, but after being repeated a thousand times, how can you still find that funny? I just dont understand.

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.

That repetitive kidnapping should stop.

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.
