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.

Popularity not surprising

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.

Exact same formula for every single arc

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!

A manga with ELEGANCE.

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.

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.

Good 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.

Since this was getting so much attention, and me being a Korean, I decided to give it a shot, and I ended up catching up to the latest chapter in two sittings, not without a couple of sleep deprivations. Everything about this is just so great, the characters, plot, action, humor, and so on. There are so many facepalm moments (in a good way) that keeps you holding your gut, and the epic strength of the protagonists just keeps you on the toes, making you wonder just how long the enemies will last until their realization of powerlessness and impending doom.

So, this is one of the best things I've ever read. When you first have entered this epic story, it is absolute impossible to escape again. The charecters is some of the best I've ever read about, through the plot isn't the best. It is kinda strange, because it's real torture to wait for the next chapter, but still, sometimes, you feel strangly disappinted when you finished the chapter, while you also feel sad that it already ended.
The actual plot seems to worsen in the latest chapters(180), even trought it still gets better. I really don't know how to eksplain it, read it and maybe you'll understand what I mean.
Definitely worth a read. (sorry for my english)

There were fights, friendship etc, the usual thing in a shonen series but the gag, about Rai and the other characters is just sooo funny!! They were fighting and all serious at one scene and then I suddenly found myself laughing!! Just totally awesome!!

@Johnjimco review is pretty accurate. Worth a read for the first two arcs. It's had me in stitches then it just kept recycling the same formula. Had great potential but lets you down. The humour is what keeps it going.

Few things the rub me the wrong way. The good guys are super handsome while many of the bad guys are "ugly" or just look plain evil looking.
