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.

If you've played The Witcher, you'll know some of the *cough* distinct characteristics of this manga.
This woeful tale could certainly have been so much darker. But seems like the author decided to keep it pretty light-hearted.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Absurdly strong protagonist, corrupt officials, plainly evil enemies, innocent bystanders...

Frankly, I was expecting a cast full of morally questionable characters and the protagonist crossing the Moral Event Horizon every time (well, the premise was kinda begging for it).

But don't let my rants disappoint you, this is a brilliant fantasy adventure, the actions are good, large-scale battles are plentiful, dungeons and dragons are the norm, oh, and the whole world is against you. Bring it on.

Don't judge the begining laden with fan service, author was stupid.

Don't judge the beginning. The author was stupid and felt a need to get readers through fan service.

If this is your first look at Ubel Blatt and you're unsure as to whether to read it, I recommend that you do. The 200 votes for a 10 is not a lie. This is a captivating story with a variety of characters on opposite sides and good art also—which includes cute female characters. I'm warning you in the beginning the mangaka seemed to tried to get viewers through fan service for whatever reason. There are some ludicrous moments in the beginning but it phases out as the author ushers in a captivating story.

If this is your first perusal at the manga, don't judge it by it's cover picture with an elf. I assure you that not everyone is an angry-looking elf. This manga is one of those fantasy mangas with multiple races. To my knowledge,the sentient ones are elves and humans. The world of Ubel Blatt is set in a medieval-esque world (so that means swords, castles, arrows, ect) but also with magic and fantasy. There are dragons and griffin-like beasts—which can be used as steeds—, magic wielders, and also magic-based technology reminiscent of early modern tech which are blimps and giant-laser-canons-of-doom-that-resembles-a-giant-mounted-serrated-knife. There are at least two empires in the Ubel Blatt world, one with a sinister-looking culture (summoning, employs scary-looking beasts) and the other that is more righteous in appearance (no scary summoning/beasts). Whether or not one is evil is impossible to tell for sure as the story is set in the righteous-looking country. The other country is only referenced when quoting history and as of yet has no connection with the plot except for stuff that happened in the past.

Ubel Blatt is told from the viewpoint of Koinzell who goes against the empire. In the eyes of the people he is evil. However, you'll find that there's some truth behind his goal. It is an adventure so the main character travels with a group of friends. All of them are people who he's helped and are devoted to his cause not b/c of their debt. However, the story does not only center on Koinzell and friends but seems to be branching another viewpoint—which won't be spoiled here. Koizel is still the main lead however.

The main character possesses great powers but so do some other people (officers in the army). This isn't like Dragon Ball Z where there is a huge power disparity. A contingent of troops actually has a chance (depending on the tactic) against an officer. It is, however, a small chance against the more elite.

There's a chance that Ubel Blatt is heading towards a romance. If it does, the romance will remain as a side story along the main quest. I do hope it does however.

You must've been really intrigued to read through all so instead of delaying it, pick up a volume and start reading!

I give this a 9 b/c it's unfinished

The manga is entertaining due to its fast pace and pretty good art, but the characters are extremely shallow and annoying in comparison to other seinen manga(I'm not gonna list them here as they've been mentioned countless times already by other commenters).

Great art, lots of violence, moral dilemmas, ecchi, a few sex scenes that are tastefully done (Köinzell being the piece of shota that makes women fawn over him), and decent characters. A good read! The only drawback is that we need more!

Personally, it's surprising, since I'm a big shoujo fanatic. I read very few shounen and have barely ever touched a seinen, especially one like Ubel Blatt. However, since I heard good things about it, I decided to give it a try. And jeez, was I ever surprised.

It's not like I don't read shounen or seinen because I don't like the genre, it's just because I haven't been able to find a story that captivates me. Even with shoujo, I hate magical girl and fantasy ones. Why was I drawn to Ubel Blatt? Well, first off, the art is incredible. Second off? There was no second off until I started reading it ^^;;

First off, I wouldn't just dump this series because of all the random sex in the first few chapters of the story. It seriously tones down later on, and it's seinen, so I was kind of expecting lots of blood and meaningless fanservice anyway. However, what really captivates me is the story. I love this antihero thing the mangaka has going on, with society not really understanding anything behind his intentions. The greed, betrayal, I feel such strong hatred and happiness when reading Ubel Blatt. It gives me such mixed emotions as I go through the chapters. I'm simply in love with what's been presented.

Overall I'm extremely impressed with what I've read so far. The only problem I have I guess is the repetition of crying, the baddies literally on the floor pleading for forgiveness every chapter, and the hope that one day Ato will put on some frikking pants...I'm sick of looking at what can't even be classified as underwear or a thong. If you're going to wear armor, wear something decent that can actually PROTECT you, jesus. Oh, and Koinzell is the best!

i think that in recent months, there has been a whole lot of ubel blatt scanlations coming out. keep up the good work, even though i only read raws. and consequently, the number of user reviews has increased
i wanna begin with saying that whoever thinks this is a berserk clone better go back and reread both series. they are nothing alike. honestly, i even like this one better. im not gonna knock off any points for my single criticism either. and that is that most of the time, i gotta go back and reread the chapters because i cant remember who is who and what the last thing that happened was. the characters (well most of them) are well developed and realistic, even in a fantasy world. the plot is straightforward but not brutally obvious and there are plot twists. the action is fluid and there is plenty of blood. i could do without some of the sex scenes, but i dont care so much. ive read enough berserk to get used to them. that is their only real similarity. anyway, if you have a day and nothing to do, read this. if you have a day and stuff to do read this anyway. its very very good
