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.

If, no matter what, you need a good plot to enjoy a story, Noblesse is not for you. The plot's cliche, repetitive and sometimes I even doubt it has been thought out at all. BUT it has its strengths. The characters are very well-rounded and jump off the page, each of them has their own unique personality and quirks, and their interactions with each other feel natural and fluid. The comedy is excellent as well, and is the reason I keep reading. Noblesse offers its own brand of humor that bursts my stitches everytime, and that is relatively hard to find (for me). So, if you're planning to try it, I'd suggest you at least read it till the ramen joke, as that was what sealed the deal for me.

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.

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

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.

4 pictures per page, but it doesn't lack anything comparing to manhwa. The art is good, and the story is packed with action and comedic moments. The characters are interesting and the plot(although a bit cliche) is well thought out.

I read all comments first, so had pretty low expectation. Johnjimco's review below is (hilariously) spot-on. i guess anyone will get annoyed after following such repititive plot for 8 years. But I was only looking for a couple hours of fun reading now and then, and I jumped back and forth from volume 1 to 7 without any difficulties in understanding the plots (they are practically the same). That was enough for me.

It's got a little something for everyone - pretty protagonists, superhuman fighting, detailed world setup, and a sense of humor that makes me snort every time. Art has gotten more sparse and minimalist (due to artist's declining health?), but still has enough detail to hold my attention. Storyline is better when they aren't introducing random bad guys that are there just to get beaten down/show protagonist power-up (looking at you season 4).

I personally like the flashbacks, they introduce more depth to the characters, especially the baddies. Of course most of the main characters have a tragic past, but they don't beat you over the head too much with it (yet - it's getting heavier-handed in this recent arc). The human kids have receded into the background of the storyline because they're basically useless except for humanizing the superbeings, but still provide some funny moments (kind of like Bleach).

My only peeve is the fight formula is rather repetitive - someone gets into trouble (humans kids/enhanced humans), lesser nobles show up, if they can't do the trick Frankenstein shows up, if even he can't take care of it Raizel cleans the whole thing up as the super-noble. Finally in this last arc they're mixing it up and there is actually some risk for the main characters (also like Bleach!).

What really makes this stand out for me is the insertion of random gags amidst super serious plot points - nothing too obvious or crass, or out of character - always making me giggle out loud.

Noblesse is definitely one of the best manga/manhwa/web comic ever. It has great plot with just right, not too fast not too slow pace. There is just the right amount of humor and the right amount of action. The characters are entertaining and there are lots of good looking ones hahaha. Oh, and the art is awesome too. This is definitely a MUST READ.

when i first read this i thought the drawings are a bit odd and nothing happens much, so i thought its dull . But after some time the drawing gets better and the story...? do i have to say the obvious? it is superb. I'm glad that i decided to give this manhwa a chance even though at first i find it boring.

So for those who haven't read it yet, bare for with it for a little while, at least until you get to the part where Rai meets the head master. Then prepare yourself for a total turn of events. Don't worry it is going to be worth it. ^^
