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.

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.

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.

My Favourite Manga!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Noblesse is my favourite manga of all time but that doesn't means it is flawless. It has flaws but then we shouldn't forget that no story is flawless. Allow me to describe its good and bad points ~

First of all, there are two types of stories. One which focuses more on plot then characte. In such stories plot is good but sadly most of the time characters are prety generic & dull.In second type of stories, characters are the main focus point rather than plot. The result being that the characters are more original & enjoyable. There is plot but not that great. Of course every story has both plot and characters but they focus on one point more than the other.

Noblesse main strength is its characters. The main protagonist is totally different from the standard shonen protagonist. He is cool, smart strong & silent. He doesn:t preaches the villains or anyone, and most of time he remains silent. You might think what's so great in this, right? Well, it's the way authors presented him. The second main character is a devoted servant who is a sadist in heart, and during the fight you would wonder who is the good guy. There are other unique & lovable characters as well. You see Noblesse focus much on the characters, their interactions, etc...

Noblesse has good action (in case of Rai it's plain massacre). There is witty humor in the fights which are serious.

The negative point of Noblesse is its somewhat repetiveness. But before you complain about this, let us remember that most of the mangas follow a certain loop to deliver plot. Let's see One Piece where the good guys arrive on an island for adventure, they find people in distress, then they sae them fron villains, and their name spreads... this pattern repeats like ten times. Most of the stories has a pattern. Nblesse is same, and its pattern being " Villains come to investigate in Korea, meets good guys, fight a battle on rooftops,... It focuses on this pattern to deliver its plot. So nothing exceptionally bad.

My only big complain is that many of the villains (not all) are generic. They boost about themselves like idiots & then die. We don't see much of their background info as well.

I recommened Noblesse to everyone who likes good characters, action and drama.

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.

Must Read Manhwa   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

At first glance, Noblesse doesn't look any different when compared to other typical Shounen manga but that is certainly not true. The Manhwa itself is filled with deeps morals and integrity of humanity along with what true friendship and companionship should really be. Though the story may not be perfect, Noblesse is still a work of extraordinary virtue and valor.

Though many people tends to compare the characters of Noblesse to existing characters of other manga, I for one believe that the characters in Noblesse are quite unique in their rightful aspects. Unlike other Shounen manga Noblesse doesn't always discern with just Good v.s Evil, nor does it try to make the audience hate a character only to have them loved later on. Noblesse does a great job with the grey area between good and evil and would place that aspect into many of the characters. Good who choose to walk evil's path and evil that choose to do good.

As for the story, I won't say that it is perfect but it is definitely better than average. A lot of people say that it is repetitive but I like to see it as character growth. It is not just about the weak getting beat by the strong and evil getting conquer by good. With each battle, the past of those who are involve gets revealed to the audience. And has these past are revealed, we get closer and closer to the bigger picture. That is what I like about Noblesse. It is predictable in its nature yet unpredictable because of its uniqueness.

7/10. The highest rating that I've ever gave to a manga/Manhwa. Noblesse is not perfect and so I won't give it a 10 but it is definitely a "Must Read" in my list.

I have no idea why people are giving this a 10. If you like repetitive and predictable plots, then this is the manga for you. The characters are slightly interesting, but aren't given much development unfortunately. As the series progresses, they just become bland and two-dimensional. The villains are boring with terrible motivations. They don't feel like people at all. This story is extremely shallow and uninspired. Also, I fell in love with the art in the initial chapters and it is understandable that the quality of the drawing would decline since it is a weekly series, BUTTTT, the current level of art is just way too lazy. After you've read the first two arcs, I suggest you move on to another series.

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.
