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.

Good Read Manhwa   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

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.

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.

The story is simple, which isn't a terrible thing, but don't expect anything particularly deep. Typical tropes abound, making enemies into friends, etc. For most of its run its been pretty much monster of the week fighting stronger and stronger opponents. Shounen action junkies should love it. I think it took the authors a bit of time to figure out where they wanted to take this story and actually develop one. Once we started to get close to the 200 chapter mark things started to develop, still it was a long wait. The art has its problems. For example, some of the characters have shadows on them, but they cast no shadows themselves. This is basic stuff. When you only have some of the panels colored, but lets say not the floor and of course no shadows the characters will look like they are floating. Someone seems to have discovered the blur tool in their image software and lost control. Everything in a background should not be blurred. Also some backgrounds jut into the foreground and if you blur that the result is that you have a sharp character that looks flat against a blurry background and some blurry foreground as well. Please use some restraint with that blur tool, you are overpowering your art with it. I could go on and on about weaknesses in the art. Their primary strength seems drawing bishies, which I must admit looks good. Some of the humor is entertaining, but very light which is a good way to describe the series. I think its a work in progress and the artists will undoubtedly get better considering how much work they are putting into it. Its light entertainment and fun entertainment, but nothing that deserves a 10. That's way overrating it. Right now its average maybe 6 to 7.

So Awesome.

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.

Why you must read Noblesse?

Its Good but ....

1. Its awesomeness is wearing off, when they started again after the one month break the story background was awesome, to come back to present day with a different angle was too soon.

2. The same cliche battles, I want Rai to be beaten or someone to power up or something dramatic to happen.

Its still an awesome webtoon, but.... its like at 8.93 on a scale of awesomness out of 10.

Both better and worse

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!!

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.

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 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..

This is the best mahnwa I've ever read the story will keep you hooked from chapter 1. You should definitely give this a chance but be ready absolutely freak out whenever the author has one of his notorious cliff hangers
