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.

Took me a while to give it a shot...but when I did, I loved it!

At first, when I read the first few chapters, I dropped it.
But a few months afterwards I gave it another try, because so many people loved it. And this manga completely surpassed my expectations!
Even though Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (Rai) is like the strongest being on earth, he doesn't go around just killing all his enemies, if he did, this story would be over long ago. I just love stoic characters like his that say some funny things (without realising themselves) with a serious tone (It's hilarious and cute...).
I Love all the main characters, even like a few of the antagonists.
I usually HATE misunderstandings in a manga (Manhua, Webcomic, etc.), but for this story it just added to it's charm.

If you're the kind of person who decides not to read a manga if it's not interesting in the beginning, then break that rule for this awesome webcomic, You won't be disappointed, I'm sure.

What makes this manhwa special and draws me to love it (and maybe most reader) is Cadis Etrama Di Raizel and Frankenstain's personality. As for the plot and story, there are a lot manga/manhwa like this. It really is the two main chara are the charm in this manhwa.

The Elegance of the Noblesse

The number one reason I read Noblesse: Cadis Etrama Di Raizel.

Never, in all my years of reading all genres of fiction novels, short stories, epic poems, mangas, etc, or in all the movies or shows I've watched, have I ever seen such a self-sacrificing, loyal, and absolutely astounding show of character as I've seen in Noblesse. Here you've got the most powerful being on the whole planet from the get-go, who only uses his power at the last minute to protect those who care for him, and also to punish those who abuse their power even when it pains him to do so.

I can't write enough praise about Rai so... Frankenstein, his servant, is the second reason I read this. His devotion to Rai is awesome, and he's super powerful and wonderfully sadistic... really the opposite of his master.

The other characters are great too, even the "regular" human kids. I love the story and the plot. There's the traditional nobles on the 'good' side and the up-and-coming Union on the 'bad' side, though neither are really good nor bad.

It's not a mainstream shounen, but it is a shounen. Again, the MC is the most powerful guy on the planet, so he easily destroys those in his way. But he doesn't want to, he doesn't scream and yell about it, and it hurts him.

There are some flashbacks, but what makes them so great is they're just long enough for the reader to understand more about the present but yet not get bored with and stuck in the past. Some even only last a few panels, but much is told with just those few.

And the last bit of why this is my absolute favorite manga/manwha/etc is the humor. It's original, all of the characters show a bit of it, and it's fairly clean. It also comes at unexpected moments. Humor is a must for me and Noblesse does a fantastic job of delivering it.

Also... this is the ONLY manga/manwha I have completely read more than once. ^^

A fun ride

I first tried reading very soon after it came out, the impression that it left wasn't very good, so I dropped it for awhile. It was after it built up to about a hundred or so chapters when I got bored, and decided to give this another go. Frankly, I got hooked, and have been following this series devotedly ever since.

The one thing that I can never-pin point with this manwha is why like it. If you asked me: Is the plot deep and original. I'd say: no. Is the characters original I'd also say: no. But I would say that there is a certain charm. Character stereotypes are put into situations and places where they normally wouldn't be. Humour is dropped when you'd least expect it. All in all it's fun, and difficult to get bored off.

A note to latest chapters:
I agree with comments saying that artwork has gone down hill since the beginning. It's high point was in the second and third seasons (imo). It might have something to do with the artist and author taking short breaks between seasons and starting a new series called "Ability". However I maintain a hope the art will go back to it's golden days.

I normally avoid manga made for guys, being a girl, it simply isn't targeted at me and I often find them slightly offensive due to how female characters are almost always portrayed. However, I was bored, had nothing to read and needed to get out of the real world. And Noblesse showed itself to me. I love how it takes the piss, and how unbelievably bad-ass some of the characters are, (it makes me feel like a fan girl.) I love how funnily insane other characters are and that no matter how serious the story is at the time is always manages to slip something in there that makes you grin. It is also exciting and something I cnan re-read. I love how the baddies they meet aren't always all that evil and that although it is predictable, it has so many redeeming qualities that it is still a good read. I wish it was an anime as well, because now I have to wait for the chapters to update and I have to find something else to read.

Like others have said before me, this web toon isn't for everyone. The majority do enjoy it though, as I am one of them. The people who rate Noblesse so high are obviously enchanted by it's charm but again not for everyone. If it's not for you, it's fine if you stop reading, just don't be that guy who ruins everyone's fun by critiquing something that is for pure entertainment.

this is the first time comment here but i´ve been a reader of almost every genre for 10+ years and never felt this extreme joy of reading manga. the plot and the buildup every time gets just better and better and it always leaves an impression of much more deep plots with great fighting scenes as well as looking beautiful.

this is NOT a YAOI (GAY) mahwa lol

hey first of all i put that as my title because it is the reason ive stayed away from this manga and to clear things up with others so they dont stay away for the same reason is that i thought it was a yaoi (gay) manga and im not into that. Even though it didnt say yaoi, with all the "good looking" main male characters that out number female i thought it would end up that way but im glad to say it didnt (no offense to yaoi readers) . any way my review:

This manga is one word amazing, the art is spectacular and is really cool in fight scenes. the art does change a little later on but its nothing to complain about its probably good to give the artist time to make more chapters faster. the story is really good even though it does some times take time to develop and the characters are made really way (i ignore the kids because there irrelevant to me) all the nobles have cool abilities and appearance, there are a lot of unique enemies and in particular the best characters of course are rai and Frankenstein (but i really like Regis and Seira too) Rai is immensely powerful and is really funny when hes viewing the world and Frankenstein is powerful too and i love when he puts people in their place. all in all i recommend this 100% and my only problem is i want a little more chick characters for the guy character but any way worth the read and keep reading even though the beginning is kinda slow

A manga with ELEGANCE.   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

This is the first time I've rated a manhwa/manga with a perfect score 10. I've been reading mangas/manhwas for years now and been giving them a rating here in mangaupdates and to other sites and I never gave and even seldom rate some 9. But when I started to read Noblesse, I felt enlightened. I've found a manhwa with a story that I felt the same with the story I used to create in my mind. I'm very delighted! I love everything in this manhwa! It's perfect! Especially, Rai. HE'S THE MOST ELEGANT PERSON I'VE EVER KNOWN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! Ugh, I think I'm in love with him.

Anyway, this manhwa is so amazing and I won't get tired of reading it over and over again.

Still love the plot and the characters, but I really hope the art returns to its previous glory >.> Before the 1-month break it seemed the artist acknowledged the complaints about artwork, but nothing has changed sad
