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.

This series is not bad--in fact, it starts out pretty well: there's just the right balance of humor and fan service (for girls), along with some decent action sequences. The main character is mysterious, and everyone is generally likable.

BUT, soon, everything becomes the same thing repeated without an end. @Moonmystery describes it pretty well. So, this manga is not that great, but it's not that bad either. Give it a try if you're bored, but don't have high expectations.

Noblesse has never been known to have a story with much depth. However, the simplicity of it, along with the great art and awesome displays of power, is what makes it such an enjoyable read. Unfortunately, the simple formula that they use repeatedly in every arc, although entertaining at first, gets old. I don't think I need to elaborate because anyone that reads this webtoon knows what I am talking about. It is still definitely worth a read, but do so with low expectations in plot and depth. Be ready to see some repitition!

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. ^^

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.

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.
