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.

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.

Agree with Tokkun and lilbro. Of course it's a matter of tastes, but well, this manga is predictable and somehow childish. The art is ok but has nothing new to it, the plot is very simple so far and the characters are pretty stereotypical. Anyhoe, i'll give it some time before dropping it...

Incredibly out of character sex scenes

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.

Berserk isn't a good manga, anymore it's classic. So I don't compare each and every fantasy action work with the MIURA Kentaro work. But that's not a reason to like other fantasy action work. Sure, there are sexy and standard event too much. I like the story but it keeps going fastly ( Bersek's,too is very slow). I think anymore the manga must be added some event that didn't guess before now.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sure. there is very much similarity between Berserk and Übel Blatt. But tastes are different. Some years ago, i saw a manga. It mixed Berserk and One Piece. You think Guts wear Hawk-eye's clothes and carry his blade and Guts's woman (i forgot her name ?sad ) is there same face and same body. Do you think Übel Blatt is very better than it. İn my opinion its rating may not be 10 but not 5 or down.

The plan is pretty cool; personal revenge turn out to be a group quest, which along the way take up valuable lessons and friends. However, its execution is nothing to speak of. I trace some intention of putting main characters in cool position in the middle of urgent situation. For example, giving command calmly from a bathub while intercepting an attacking army. Or walking slowly with contentment of own accomplishment while riot is still underway. I have to go here to check up if this manga intended for teenage reader or this is author first piece because, well, they're ridiculous. Add non-protective armour, skimpy clothing, useless knights, irrelevant sex scene; if this piece were to made a movie, it wouldn't even made a decent B-rate.

Turns out, this manga is for mature audience. I don't know which mature audience, but I refuse to be entertained by piece that are put together haphazardly. I guess that's okay if we read it when we're in 'the hell of it, I just want to read some story' mood, because indeed this is a page turner. But believe me, after all pages are turned, you won't say 'what an inspiring story,' but closer to 'son, I'm disappointed.'

Good art, interesting character design, but crowded with useless character and lame placement.
