Description
When the Wischtech threatened to invade the fiefs of Szaalanden, the Emperor dispatched fourteen youths. Of these, the Seven Heroes halted the invasion to herald a time of prosperity while the four Lances of Betrayal were supposedly defeated.

Two decades later, the Lances of Betrayal have reappeared and formed a bandit militia near the frontier fief Gormbark. A man with a black sword and a scar over his left eye slays an entire troop of that militia. He is identified as the boy, Koinzell, and becomes as much an object of fear as of hope even as his own past, motivations, and purpose are a mystery to those he meets on his journey.

Volume 0 encompasses a plot arc which leads directly into the main plot of Übel Blatt in Volume 1. It also introduces and develops the attitudes and motives of a few other characters aside from Koinzell.

As a series that has had countless ups and downs, it's current direction is plummeting. The characters have gone haywire and the world that they inhabit makes less sense with each passing chapter.

- - - - -

In regards to the comparison between Berserk and Ubel Blatt...

There is NO comparison. They are two different series with two different flavors.

The whole idea behind the whole "4 lances of betrayal" and the "7 heroes" is very cool. The art is fun and pretty good. However, the story keeps tripping over itself by throwing in typical anime fetishes like all the lolis and shotas running all around the place. Plus it tries too hard to be "dark" and mature with the random raping or the random sex scenes. I have no problem with nudity or sex or a story that contains rape as long as it serves a purpose beyond just throwing it in there or acting as fan-service for readers. Plus, some of the characters become so ridiculously evil that its a caricature. The author needed an excuse for the main character besides revenge, so all the bad guys end up going crazy with scenes where their raping women or just being abusive just in case the reader wasn't aware that they have it coming. This is just...clumsy. Someone said this was better than Berserk? No its not. Berserk is not perfect mind you, but its story of betrayal is better and harsher than Ubel Blatt. It all comes down to, as another reviewer pointed out, how the story is told. In Ubel Blatt sometimes the story flows, sometimes it glosses over things, more often its choppy with things lacking explanation or weak transitions. Its not awful, but I expected better from all the praise it gets. To me its just average at about a 5.

The series started out great, but as others have mentioned it quickly abandoned its implied moral ambiguity and anti-hero protagonist for a tediously black and white world where the bad guys are almost comically so and the protagonist's minor sins are washed away in the sea of innocent blood the aforementioned bad guys spill. It's sort of amusing seeing the chapter blurbs billing it as dark fantasy when really the only thing that would categorise it as such is the gore and the (thankfully less frequent shotacon looking) nudity and sex.

Everyone's free to like or dislike what they want and I dont want to cheerlead any particular series but it is funny seeing some of the comments decrying Berserk for crimes that Ubel Blatt is much more guilty off e.g. "More believable villains (with purpose/logic/justification vs. "they went crazy, teh end")." Amusing as it applies to at least half of the major villains we've seen in Ubel Blatt so far and basically none of the major villains in Berserk. "Soooo much better art. Especially physiology/proportion/perspective/movement " Come on, just look at Koinzell or any of his harem (lolis or super top heavy combat strippers). Berserk's artwork has considerably more verisimilitude.

Anyhow to drag this back on track, its not terrible, actually its fairly above average. Its just unfortunate that it squandered (and continues to squander) its potential.

The antihero concept was truly interesting at first. Unfortunately, the opponents all turn out to be so evil and shallow that the series loses all moral ambiguity. It ends up as nothing more than justice porn (and the occasional outright porn).

More addictive. Better atmosphere & conveyed better. More believable feelings. More believable villains (with purpose/logic/justification vs. "they went crazy, teh end").

Soooo much better art. Especially physiology/proportion/perspective/movement - kinda important in an action.

Faaaaar better cast. You sympathize with them. You understand them. They're alive here, and not just sword targets.

Better world design: it HAS one. None of that fast-travel in unstated random direction & arrive in new generic evil town/enemy castle crap. Location DOES have consequence, places are visited and revisited, topography matters, political geography changes.

And, heck, it's even grittier.

...all the while also having better swordplay. Technical finesse fighters over big dumb brutes, any day.

unnecessary hentai and harem cliche

obviously without the action i would say this is one of the most cliche hentai with harem.
it's just sad with the good idea of heroes gone bad and revenge.
still read it though when i remember.

This manga start out great and a page turner. Such a shame really that there was several element that take me away from this manga.

random sex scene (very annoying) would be better without this and the volume 0 works reverse to put people off than make people read it due to that.

it was good at first after the sex scene decrease and it became more serious,but more problem. It's too fast paced, like how it just time skip the whole war not telling us how it progressed slowly. I often have problem digesting what's going on and was disappointed


I couldn't believe I loved this manga before despite the sex scene, but now..i just pick this up when I am out of manga to read.

This manga started of OK, got good after a few volumes than got boring and tame around volume 8 or so. Than it went on a hiatus, came back and now it is just again just OK.
The the art is pretty good but the "world building" is sub par. So after 12 Volumes i had enough.
By the way. How many mangas is he writing at once ? Does he want to one up LIM Dall-Young ?
Instead i suggest Berserk, Wolfsmund, Vinland Saga and so on.

The plan is pretty cool; personal revenge turn out to be a group quest, which along the way take up valuable lessons and friends. However, its execution is nothing to speak of. I trace some intention of putting main characters in cool position in the middle of urgent situation. For example, giving command calmly from a bathub while intercepting an attacking army. Or walking slowly with contentment of own accomplishment while riot is still underway. I have to go here to check up if this manga intended for teenage reader or this is author first piece because, well, they're ridiculous. Add non-protective armour, skimpy clothing, useless knights, irrelevant sex scene; if this piece were to made a movie, it wouldn't even made a decent B-rate.

Turns out, this manga is for mature audience. I don't know which mature audience, but I refuse to be entertained by piece that are put together haphazardly. I guess that's okay if we read it when we're in 'the hell of it, I just want to read some story' mood, because indeed this is a page turner. But believe me, after all pages are turned, you won't say 'what an inspiring story,' but closer to 'son, I'm disappointed.'

Good art, interesting character design, but crowded with useless character and lame placement.

Despite what some the reviews below say, I really enjoy reading this manga. The plot is set up very well, the characters are likable, and artwork is top-notch. I don't think that it's got anything above Berserk quality; but then again Berserk is really just incomparable seeing as it has a fan base that streches back 30 somepin' years ago. On it's own, It's a great manga that has definitely got into my top 10.
