The premise of the manga is really original and an interesting take on the traditional story of heros and villains. Ignoring the random sex scenes, the first chapters up until
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
glenn dies
were great and engaging to read. After the hiatus, the quality of the story and characters plummeted. Before, a certain point, the motivations of the protagonist and antagonists were relatable and almost justified, but as the manga dragged on, the depth of the characters were replaced with shallow shounen stereotypes. The characters are now a shadow of their former selves. As the series progresses, the moral ambiguity at the beginning is forgotten, and a slew of shallow villains that are evil for the sake of being evil appear. This wipes yet another layer of depth the story once had. It's still a story about corruption, but as it is now, the story is only a husk of what it once was. The drawing is also not a strong point and often times, characters can be foreshortened awkwardly when drawn in different angles. The style takes some getting used to and is not for everyone. While not considered aesthetically pleasing in the conventional sense, the drawing is able to convey a good range of emotions which is better than the average shounen manga style, therefore it actually adds to the story at times. Also, the quality of the drawings has stayed pretty consistent, if not improving a bit from the beginning to its current chapters. Before I would give it an 8. At the current chapters, it is no more than a 5. Therefore, I would give it an in-between score of 6.

The antihero concept was truly interesting at first. Unfortunately, the opponents all turn out to be so evil and shallow that the series loses all moral ambiguity. It ends up as nothing more than justice porn (and the occasional outright porn).

It simply has some of the best artwork around the story is all right but people tell me berserk is way better . I have seen some samples of berserk and the art of Blatt is definitely better so I think it has to do with the story ,but this is decent stuff and has great artists working on it.

I think the comparison with berserk is totaly wrong (whether your blatt-Fan of Berserk-Fan)
because their soo different
i liked the idea of a corrupte empire with a false history and false heroes and plus i liked that in the begining the main char doesn't pretend to be a hero and admit that he selfishly wish for vengeance
what with berserk is over ********* better ??
to tell the truth i started reading berserk long ago and as awed by everything about it but the last arc was such a let down i dropped it
i think berserk is being watered down recently (since the white hawk arc and the witch and isuduro joining the party)

First off, let me start by saying that I am a Beserk fan, a HUGE Beserk fan. The only manga that has ever come close to its dark appeal is Claymore. But I will be the first to say that this manga is NOT a rip off of Beserk. Sure they're from the same genre, but when have we started reading manga based on it being similar or not similar ENOUGH to a particular manga. I mean if we want to talk about similarities, then sure there are some. Both have faeries, both are set during an medieval time period. Both use swords and magic and both of the protagonist were betrayed by people close to them. That's it! But give me a break if that is the reason people are scoring it low, that's a pretty crappy reason. Every work written today, whether good or bad, was inspired by other works! There is no such thing in this day and age as an original idea. There is an such thing as an original "take" on an idea. That being said, who cares if this work was inspired by Beserk in the end Ubel Blatt is Ubel Blatt and Beserk is Beserk.

To the people griping about underage sex. Uh...did any of you bother to read the really did you? Because if you had, you would know that the kid that your so put off with engaging with older women is NOT a kid at all. He states over and over again, that he has been seeking revenge for 20yrs. Do the math people, if he was first betrayed when he was oh...15 and has been seeking revenge since that time, how old would that make him? Yes, the body he now inhabits is child like...12 to 15 in age, but he is a 30something yr old man people!

Now to my review. The manga isn't the best I've read. It's not as dark as say Claymore or Beserk IMHO but it does alright for the genre. It's definitely not the worst written manga either. It has it share of action and gore. The fight scenes are easily discernible. The art is just above average. There is a element of shota, but "only" because of the leads appearance, not age. The main protagonist is likable. Basically its interesting enough to fill in when your faves haven't been updated.

Likes I said its not the best and not the worst, so I gave the series an 8.

Oh and this would seriously rock as an anime!

I'm rating this without berserk in mind(I couldn't rate it if compared to Berserk anyways. I haven't read Berserk) I like this manga so far. The plot is simple, and I really do like the artwork. It's very good for a Mangaka's first try at this sort of genre. And it's a lot more shounen than seinen so I can read it more easily.

This is quite a good manga, to bad everyone is trying to put it in the same mindset as Berserk. I agree with some of the people who are saying that the comparison is ridiculous since they are both two totally different stories. The only similarities that you can really put them on with is that they are both dark fantasies. Well with that aside I have to say I was pretty pleased on what I read. The story seems to be building up in an interesting way, and the artwork is pretty great too. The characters were pretty intriguing as well, the history of a good amount of them would probably prove to be a very interesting read as well.

lol i don't mind the nudity of the characters (even though it's too much for the eyes sometimes) but the art and the story are epic! i have fallen in love with the manga and i just hate waiting for the next series 'cause it takes too long, i get so impatience. but i really really like this one. i'm one of those people who just loves actions and heroic episodes (never mind the blood and stuff--i don't care about that lol), and i love my main character being a humble but strong/powerful hero and Koinzell/Ascheriit is such an addicting character that i don't wanna let go! i can't wait for the next series! it just keeps getting better and better.......thanks, Shiono, for creating this one, you're one of my favorite mangakas! the art is incredible and the story is amazing! you're one of the bests. :->
-i'm one of your #1 fans---so keep doing a great job!!!

p.s. -- i would give it a full 10+ score, but i still need to see how it ends, but then it deserves a much much higher score than that. smile

There's fanservice. Tons of it. For those guys out there who love seeing tit-pics or naked butts, you'll enjoy the peeks. For the ladies, the angtsy bishounen main character will tide you over the fanservice that is CLEARLY for the male sex. Each volume delivers.

Although it gets annoying when the main character starts tearing up everytime he kills someone, it still tugs at my heartstrings every time. The art is quite nice and the storyline is dramatically bloody. Although I'm not a gory manga kind of person, the blood was bearable. Some parts are very OUT THERE, with the protagnist having a good old time with some older/younger/no clue who he is but still has sex with him.

Oh, I do appreciate the fact that the mangaka does not draw young girls with boobs bulging out of their tops. Very nice. With all the ecchi manga nowadays, girl's proportions are grossly exaggerated.

OVERALL, those who like action, angst, a good story, tons of time to read 10 volumes, and beautifully drawn people will enjoy this. Plus, the translated manga scans have memorable quoted. Oh yes, and who knew Koinzell looked so dang elegant whilst fighting a battle with blood splattered on his face? Pure fangirl material.

Men, there is a sex scene in the first few chapters. If that doesn't make you interested, you must be strange.

love it, a great blend of story and action and its epic!!! guys that are saying there's too much sex are exaggerating as there's only a few in the first few volumes after that there hardly any at all. all manga fans should read this.
