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.

It's been a while since a new manga came out that was this interesting and addictive. There are very few mangas that I will rate a 10 out of 10, e.g. Berserk, but this one thoroughly surprised me especially with the most recent chapters which have added a great deal of depth to the story. The style that the manhwa presents is new and fresh, and although the storyline might seem like it's been done before by other authors this is one of the more interesting vampire stories.

I am trying to figure out what the whole appeal is to this series...it truly is very simple.


The plot isn't really intriguing; it also felt too familiar, not entirely unique enough.


The male leads are painfully bishounen. Maybe I am just too old (Who knows, maybe I would have liked it back when I was 16?) but it wasn't for me. These guys are very sparkly emo pretty with eyeliner and piercings.

I will say that the art can feel quite fresh, much dibs to that, it's not like others. But sometimes the scenes can be tiresome or too "empty", and there are plenty of them. I agree with Ibleda about the webcomicy feel about the whole thing too.

I wonder if maybe the series was created to dip into a hype - offerring prettyness and a cliched storyline, thinking this was enough for a particular type of general audience. In a sense, dumbing down on purpose thinking it is for a dumbdowned group of readers. Which, in context, should feel a bit insulting.


If you do want a light, temporary and colourful read, then go for it, there is no harm in that. But if you are more interested in more a intricate, original, mature, and detailed plot with truly complex characters, reach for another series.

Additionally, if you are also a grown adult, reach for another series.

I'm sorry, but it is a bit overrated. I know some folks will likely feel all heated, defensive, throwing the usual silly "Haters" line, but have to say it like it is. (Funny how some people can get all fussy because others have legit opinions on why they don't like something. People who have read and disliked Noblesse have moved on with their lives, surely the fans can do the same thing instead of complaining or insulting)

BEST EVER!! + 5 years later revisit   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

10/10 Just started reading it the other day and it's so addicting! It starts out a little slow, i mean all that happened in the first chapter was him getting out of a coffin but the story picks up and never loses its grip. Its unique for an action series to have all the fights so one sided, but I don't think it detracts from the story because it doesn't rely so much on the fights to tell the story. (And personally I don't usually care about the battle scenes anyway.)
The art is amazing and even though its in a weird format, i think it actually helps the story telling because if you can only see one panel at a time, it shows the passage of time better.

=====================================================================
5 years later revisit: Okay, so I dropped this series several years ago because it was getting boring and the other day I noticed I had listed it as a 10. Well this needs to be fixed. So I tried re-reading it just to make sure I could update accurately. It's worse than I remembered.

God, what happened in the past 5 years? Was it me or the series but it's really just average. Full of tired cliches, repeating elements that got old after the first time. What did I see here?

I wrote my initial review shortly after starting the series and it seemed to have a pretty solid foundation, but neither the plot nor the characters get any deeper. It seems to suffer from "the publisher won't let me cancel" syndrome or something.

If you want something similar but actually has plot and character development, I'd go read Lessa. It's long since filled the void in my heart left by this hot mess.

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.

This is by far the best shonen currently on air, the main character Rai fascinates me, I've always wanted a manga where the protagonist was the strongest since the very beginning, but even if he is the strongest you'll be hooked by a magnific plot and the awesome characters so as by the funniest scenes that you have and will ever see. If I had to say something bad about noblesse would be that you will die waiting for the weekly release since the author likes cliff hangers too much, well actually the only bad thing is that noblesse causes a very high addiction and dependence.

Anyways, I definitely recommend this manhwa as it is one of the best that I have come across.
Awesome art and plot. 10/10. ^o^

I honestly love this manhwa. It's interesting, funny, mysterious, has a bit of a nostalgic comic book feel to it at parts, has beautiful, "elegant" artwork, and is of course chock full of bishie heroes and side characters. It has some drawbacks (for example sometimes you want to look at something in between the achingly beautiful and grotesquely deformed from too much power--and other times you wish the main character would stop sipping tea and do something, or at least say something) but in my opinion the positives far outweigh these things. The art and style change a whole lot through the course of its very many many chapters (some like the change, some don't--I like it) and the plot has its high action parts and much slower humor mini-arcs where Rai gets lost, sips tea, and he and Frankie watch lively high schoolers play board games and mess up their clean home. It breaks up the action nicely and gives a chance to be lighthearted in between all the sciency supernatural plot thickness.

If you come at this manhwa for the fight's, you'll pleased, but I think the best thing about this manga is that there isn't any question of who's going to lose. Rai (the presumed "Dracula") and his servant are so much more powerful than their foes that it isn't a matter of "are they gonna win?" but rather, "I wonder what they're going to do now?" It's a story of a man/creature that knows he's the strongest, and is simply taking his time adjusting to his new surroundings. It's amusing to watch their leisurely attitudes, even in the dangerous moments. You'll be sure to check plenty of chuckles out of this one.

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.
