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.

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

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.

Have you ever encountered a story that you like and don't even know why? Well Noblesse falls into that category.
If anybody were to ask why you like it, or even to explain the plot, it sounds weak. "It's about this mysterious organization that experiments on people, and a really powerful guy who keeps defeating members of said organization..."
People would probably look at you weird and probably give the story a pass.
Yet, at least in my case, once I began reading it, I marathoned through it, and to be honest, if it ever becomes available in English, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
I can't truly say what is it that makes this manwha so great, but it has something that pulls you in. The characters are interesting, my favorites are pretty much the main cast of enhanced humans plus Rai.
I passed on this story so many times, but now it's one of my favorites.

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 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.

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.
