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.

i don't care if some say the drawing is getting bad or that it's not detailed enough. But this webtoon is being updated every dammit week, and the mangaka has been showing time and consideration through out the all story, and you guys are bad mouthing about it!!! do you guys know how hard is it to be a mangaka? and yet most of us read it weakly for FREE and YET not being at least a bit GREATFUL? OR are you saying that you can come up with a better story well draw and that's also getting updated weekly for free? if so i take what i said BACK!

I am trying to figure out what the whole appeal is to this series...it truly is very simple.


The plot isn't really intriguing; it also felt too familiar, not entirely unique enough.


The male leads are painfully bishounen. Maybe I am just too old (Who knows, maybe I would have liked it back when I was 16?) but it wasn't for me. These guys are very sparkly emo pretty with eyeliner and piercings.

I will say that the art can feel quite fresh, much dibs to that, it's not like others. But sometimes the scenes can be tiresome or too "empty", and there are plenty of them. I agree with Ibleda about the webcomicy feel about the whole thing too.

I wonder if maybe the series was created to dip into a hype - offerring prettyness and a cliched storyline, thinking this was enough for a particular type of general audience. In a sense, dumbing down on purpose thinking it is for a dumbdowned group of readers. Which, in context, should feel a bit insulting.


If you do want a light, temporary and colourful read, then go for it, there is no harm in that. But if you are more interested in more a intricate, original, mature, and detailed plot with truly complex characters, reach for another series.

Additionally, if you are also a grown adult, reach for another series.

I'm sorry, but it is a bit overrated. I know some folks will likely feel all heated, defensive, throwing the usual silly "Haters" line, but have to say it like it is. (Funny how some people can get all fussy because others have legit opinions on why they don't like something. People who have read and disliked Noblesse have moved on with their lives, surely the fans can do the same thing instead of complaining or insulting)

This is the second best series I've ever read, (I love One Piece more still).

It starts out a bit slow with alot of questions arounds and it keeps interesting and fun all the time up to the action starts. I love how when you see the action you still don't know exactly how strong they are and it keeps up all the time. As the series goes along it progress faster and faster and I'm getting goosebumps every time I read a new chapter now.

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. ^^

Not everyone might want to read this story. It has good points and bad, much like the others stated.

This story has a long start, that was boring at first. It began to get better as the story went, with it's plot thickening. At first the art was awesome with detailed male leads (which are a lot of them), but around chapter 210, the artwork began to get less detailed. This might because it's updated weekly so there a shortage of time, or the lack of work. I don't really care much now than it first started since I'm used to it.
As well the art lacking around 200 chapters, that where the back story shows. At first, there wasn't much back story into this, but after reading many chapters, there was.
The main lead began as the strongest; but unlike others, he doesn't show it till it's needed. He gives the others a chose wherever he interferes with the others. He lets others have their own path, and doesn't bother unless it's harming someone that isn't him. Rai is one of my favorite characters because of these facts. He doesn't interact much, but watches from afar.
Franky, or Frankstein, is another one. He has a mix personally that shines wherever he's in a fight. He's loyal to Rai, it shows throughout the story.
The jokes aren't the adult type, it's well placed and new than other stories. It's mostly about the characters' peeves, rules, and knowledge (Franky being mad because his house is ruin). It's funny that will make you giggle throughout the story.
All I can say, this story is different to everyone who reads it. This story is long, so you better have patient (which I don't have much of but I still read it). I almost dropped it two times, but it was short and I began again.

What makes this manhwa special and draws me to love it (and maybe most reader) is Cadis Etrama Di Raizel and Frankenstain's personality. As for the plot and story, there are a lot manga/manhwa like this. It really is the two main chara are the charm in this manhwa.

hey first of all i put that as my title because it is the reason ive stayed away from this manga and to clear things up with others so they dont stay away for the same reason is that i thought it was a yaoi (gay) manga and im not into that. Even though it didnt say yaoi, with all the "good looking" main male characters that out number female i thought it would end up that way but im glad to say it didnt (no offense to yaoi readers) . any way my review:

This manga is one word amazing, the art is spectacular and is really cool in fight scenes. the art does change a little later on but its nothing to complain about its probably good to give the artist time to make more chapters faster. the story is really good even though it does some times take time to develop and the characters are made really way (i ignore the kids because there irrelevant to me) all the nobles have cool abilities and appearance, there are a lot of unique enemies and in particular the best characters of course are rai and Frankenstein (but i really like Regis and Seira too) Rai is immensely powerful and is really funny when hes viewing the world and Frankenstein is powerful too and i love when he puts people in their place. all in all i recommend this 100% and my only problem is i want a little more chick characters for the guy character but any way worth the read and keep reading even though the beginning is kinda slow

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.

I recently started reading Noblesse and I must say I am addicted. The art definitely gets better as the manhwa progresses and the story is developing nicely, though I must say at a slow rate. I agree with many of the reviewers that comment on Noblesse's slow pace. Even though I finished 238 chapters worth of the manhwa I feel that the story has just started to pick up. Character development also seems to be lacking now that I think about it, but I guess more than the main character developing, his already complex character is slowly being revealed? Though it has some faults there is just something about this manhwa that compels you to continue reading.
Also, the jokes in this manhwa are truly funny. I definitely had a good laugh throughout my time reading Noblesse.
