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.

My Favourite Manga!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
by strixflash

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.

..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.

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.

This manhwa is truly enjoyable when you just want to see light, but fun, humor and some utter humiliation for despicable characters, but at no point it deserves an ideal rating.

Main problem with this manhwa is that it is repetitiveness in every way.
Most of the first half is spent introducing new characters in completely identical ways
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the introductions of the white haired vampire pair and the pair from Korean national security was almost identical, and even before that it had already been used
, though I did enjoy it, but it is a cheat to reuse the same introduction method like an old joke even when keeping periods between them.
Speaking about jokes, they are repeated over and over again with the same formula “said something silly”+ “awkward silence”=laugh.

Characters are very varied, but too often they receive the same old Naruto & Co treatment. They are introduced, colored and showed aside. Really, there are human kids who leave more of impression of pets that are kept for enjoyment and nothing else, they show up to entertain everyone and then get lost. They play utterly no role of importance in the story other then entertaining the godly vampire.

As I said in the beginning this is light manhwa with predictable plot twists, but the story because of its lightness is very enjoyable, but at no point it is perfect and at no point it deserves a 10.

Long but Awesome

Not everyone might want to read this story. It has good points and bad, much like the others stated.

This story has a long start, that was boring at first. It began to get better as the story went, with it's plot thickening. At first the art was awesome with detailed male leads (which are a lot of them), but around chapter 210, the artwork began to get less detailed. This might because it's updated weekly so there a shortage of time, or the lack of work. I don't really care much now than it first started since I'm used to it.
As well the art lacking around 200 chapters, that where the back story shows. At first, there wasn't much back story into this, but after reading many chapters, there was.
The main lead began as the strongest; but unlike others, he doesn't show it till it's needed. He gives the others a chose wherever he interferes with the others. He lets others have their own path, and doesn't bother unless it's harming someone that isn't him. Rai is one of my favorite characters because of these facts. He doesn't interact much, but watches from afar.
Franky, or Frankstein, is another one. He has a mix personally that shines wherever he's in a fight. He's loyal to Rai, it shows throughout the story.
The jokes aren't the adult type, it's well placed and new than other stories. It's mostly about the characters' peeves, rules, and knowledge (Franky being mad because his house is ruin). It's funny that will make you giggle throughout the story.
All I can say, this story is different to everyone who reads it. This story is long, so you better have patient (which I don't have much of but I still read it). I almost dropped it two times, but it was short and I began again.

From Hilarious to Interesting to Draggy

Noblesse started out funny and interesting with an intriguing plot that showed a lot of promise. I liked that the main character was strong from the start. His interactions with Frankenstein, the students and how the enemy always underestimated him was amusing. The art in the beginning was really pretty and detailed...now not so much. It was one of the great things about this webtoon, what happened? Noblesse has become repetitive and boring, with dragged out fighting scenes and lack of character growth.
