Description
When the Wischtech threatened to invade the fiefs of Szaalanden, the Emperor dispatched fourteen youths. Of these, the Seven Heroes halted the invasion to herald a time of prosperity while the four Lances of Betrayal were supposedly defeated.

Two decades later, the Lances of Betrayal have reappeared and formed a bandit militia near the frontier fief Gormbark. A man with a black sword and a scar over his left eye slays an entire troop of that militia. He is identified as the boy, Koinzell, and becomes as much an object of fear as of hope even as his own past, motivations, and purpose are a mystery to those he meets on his journey.

Volume 0 encompasses a plot arc which leads directly into the main plot of Übel Blatt in Volume 1. It also introduces and develops the attitudes and motives of a few other characters aside from Koinzell.

Very good, i have seen the raws up to chapter 35 (was a good manga by the looks of it), and a few minutes ago i finished reading v0 and v1ch1 translated (I changed my mind, It's an excellent manga). A must read!.

Strong start, losing it on the long stretch

The series started out great, but as others have mentioned it quickly abandoned its implied moral ambiguity and anti-hero protagonist for a tediously black and white world where the bad guys are almost comically so and the protagonist's minor sins are washed away in the sea of innocent blood the aforementioned bad guys spill. It's sort of amusing seeing the chapter blurbs billing it as dark fantasy when really the only thing that would categorise it as such is the gore and the (thankfully less frequent shotacon looking) nudity and sex.

Everyone's free to like or dislike what they want and I dont want to cheerlead any particular series but it is funny seeing some of the comments decrying Berserk for crimes that Ubel Blatt is much more guilty off e.g. "More believable villains (with purpose/logic/justification vs. "they went crazy, teh end")." Amusing as it applies to at least half of the major villains we've seen in Ubel Blatt so far and basically none of the major villains in Berserk. "Soooo much better art. Especially physiology/proportion/perspective/movement " Come on, just look at Koinzell or any of his harem (lolis or super top heavy combat strippers). Berserk's artwork has considerably more verisimilitude.

Anyhow to drag this back on track, its not terrible, actually its fairly above average. Its just unfortunate that it squandered (and continues to squander) its potential.

I really liked this series, read it until c84. Reminds me a lot of Berserk. Great action sequences. Wonderful artwork.

I just can't get over how girly the main character is (though the sword's from that hair is pretty cool). I'll probably pick it up again once I lose my immaturity. bigrazz

Aw,,,! It's like Berserk with cute shonen art!! (The sex scenes are like Shotacon though... awkward! And don't chew me out for saying that cause I've barely started reading and that's the only sex scene I've seen!) but it's interesting. And awesome. I really like it so far.

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.

I really like this manga. I'm giving it an 8.5. I really like where it's going in revenge. I don't like it on how people compare mangas. I also see those of you who rated this manga really low when you only read like what, 5 chapters. I mean come on this is only the first volume and you hate it. Give it time and then give a real review. I just finished the second volume and I like where this manga is going.

Incredibly out of character sex scenes   
Rating: N/A

When i first started reading this i was completely taken off guard when the main character who looks extremely young started fingering an older woman. This series does start off with a few very out of character sex scenes that do not fit in the story at all and don't really have a set up, its just some older woman who shoes up and says, "oh! hello little boy, for some reason i find children attractive, and if i were a man and this wasn't manga i would be in jail for child molestation". Its like pedo bear shows up wearing a skirt and it does't phase Koinzell at all. I understand that he is a warrior back from the dead after 20 years but that doesn't change the fact that he has the body of a 12 year old.
I kept reading in hopes that the sex scenes would disappear as the story matured and focused more on the plot.

Thank goodness i kept reading because the sex scenes that should be left only to doujinshi for the people who like that sort of thing do eventually become nearly nonexistent.

Don't get me wrong i don't dislike Ubel Blatt because overall this manga really is worth reading, the beginning of the series may have a few graphic sex scenes that don't fit but once you get past them the series does take off on an epic adventure. The story is really good, some might say its cliche but that isn't a bad thing. And when i say that there are out of place sex scenes its pretty much like someone hid a few pages of playboy in Naruto so that their mom wouldn't find it.

I have to give this series an 8/10 because the few sex scenes in the beginning really do devalue the story. if not for that i'd give it a higher score depending on how it ends when and if the series comes out of hiatus.
