Not as good as rumors say

This manga has all the right elements, but those elements, action, drama, friendship, betrayal, fear, courage, consistency. . .etc., are not done very well. It's just a case of a good story told badly. No matter how good the song, joke, story, whatever, it needs to be sung/told well. Otherwise it fails. This story teller failed.

I think I read up to about chapter 83, and I can honestly say that I remember almost nothing about this manga except that the MC has pointy ears and red swords that come out of his back.

Very well drawn, but very convoluted

Make no mistake this is a great read, but the story slowly but surely becomes complicated and complex with political maneuvering, betrayals, rogue military units, a fracturing military empire and a 500 ton elephant in the room that the story has yet to address. Thats not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be disjointing when you consider the fact that the story starts off as a mere badass-returned-from-the-grave, revenge story.

In short, this is a Berserk knockoff with more focus on larger scaled battles and political dealing/backstabbing.

It simply has some of the best artwork around the story is all right but people tell me berserk is way better . I have seen some samples of berserk and the art of Blatt is definitely better so I think it has to do with the story ,but this is decent stuff and has great artists working on it.

Nothing new

Its like hunter by hunter with medieval revenge in it, the sex is almost inexistent like all claim. There are more sex in romantic comedies. The history so far is boring like The vision of escaflowne, but the draws are well done and the character are kinda nice but ofc the uncoherent things is part of this shonen mangas. The reason is popular in my guest is becasue the gore and the obvious things that attract people like in this typical mangas.
Mayou Maou Yusha is a lot better read than this but ofc that one is only popular with middle age persons that dont need a rain of blood to be entertainment. But the political background is decent.

In overall I give a 5 to this manga, Its a good manga and good read but nothing new and too focus in shonen seinen typical manga.

Incredibly out of character sex scenes

When i first started reading this i was completely taken off guard when the main character who looks extremely young started fingering an older woman. This series does start off with a few very out of character sex scenes that do not fit in the story at all and don't really have a set up, its just some older woman who shoes up and says, "oh! hello little boy, for some reason i find children attractive, and if i were a man and this wasn't manga i would be in jail for child molestation". Its like pedo bear shows up wearing a skirt and it does't phase Koinzell at all. I understand that he is a warrior back from the dead after 20 years but that doesn't change the fact that he has the body of a 12 year old.
I kept reading in hopes that the sex scenes would disappear as the story matured and focused more on the plot.

Thank goodness i kept reading because the sex scenes that should be left only to doujinshi for the people who like that sort of thing do eventually become nearly nonexistent.

Don't get me wrong i don't dislike Ubel Blatt because overall this manga really is worth reading, the beginning of the series may have a few graphic sex scenes that don't fit but once you get past them the series does take off on an epic adventure. The story is really good, some might say its cliche but that isn't a bad thing. And when i say that there are out of place sex scenes its pretty much like someone hid a few pages of playboy in Naruto so that their mom wouldn't find it.

I have to give this series an 8/10 because the few sex scenes in the beginning really do devalue the story. if not for that i'd give it a higher score depending on how it ends when and if the series comes out of hiatus.

This one starts out very ecchi, with a lot of nudity that seems to be just for the sheer sake of having naked girls scampering about the pages. If you can trudge through this, the writing does improve greatly as the rampant nudity gets turned down to almost nonexistence. Koinzell still remains a blatantly overpowered character that can take out almost anyone with little to no difficulty. However just when things start to get interesting as he's finally facing an opponent that has more than a decent shot of taking him out, the manga goes into hiatus on a cliffhanger.

It has been in hiatus now since 2009. While the mangaka apparently does intend to pick it up again, I think our hopes of seeing that happen are going to diminish with each passing year. If you're reading this and having started reading Übel Blatt yet, don't do it. Maybe download the manga and just sit on it while you read other things.

I really liked this series, read it until c84. Reminds me a lot of Berserk. Great action sequences. Wonderful artwork.

I just can't get over how girly the main character is (though the sword's from that hair is pretty cool). I'll probably pick it up again once I lose my immaturity. bigrazz

Seriously, for a real seinen, just read Berserk. This manga has got nothing on Berserk. Typical shonen main character and some ecchi at the start for all the perverts out there. Otherwise the only thing this manga actually pulls off is being a complete and total letdown. Don't waste your time on this when there's good seinen like Berserk still on-going.

A real fantasy masterpiece

If there was ever a fantasy manga that impressed me more than Ubel Blatt, I don't remember it. Hell, I'll lay it to you straight, I'm downright BORED of the fantasy genre. When I started off reading Ubel Blatt, I fully expected to discard it to the reject pile within the first 3 chapters or so.

But I din't. The manga has a lot going against it - blatant fanservice (although I suppose its a plus to some), senseless violence, no shortage of bishounens (I'm sure the ladies would love that. Then again, how many ladies actually read this?). But despite that (or because of it?) Ubel Blatt is a real good piece of work.

In spite of the impression some might have from reading the first few chapters, this is not a cliched "kid sticking it up to the man and teaching his fellows the values of cooperation and friendship" kinda tale. That "Antihero" tag is there for a reason, and one that I will not spoil for those who have yet to read the story. Suffice to say, there is no clear cut "good side" or "bad side" in this tale. There are protagonists and antagonists, yes, but many stereotypically "good" characters work with the antagonists, and the protagonist himself does not always fit the description of what you'd call a "hero".

For me, a good manga must have either an interesting story/background, or interesting characters. Ubel Blatt has both.

As I said before, Koinzell is no typical shounen action hero. He can be, and often will be, exceedingly brutal to his foes, even while acknowledging that his actions may cause more harm than good. On the other hand, he is also not a heartless monster, and he gathers an interesting cast of supporting characters over the course of the manga.

As for the story, it has a fast paced and hectic flow to it. From simple shounen action stock, to the rich background of both the characters and the world itself, and to high strung scenes of betrayal and camaraderie - the mangaka pulls of all of these things with a golden touch. Its especially interesting to see how the relationship of various characters to Koinzell change over the series - former companions turned enemies, former foes becoming allies, etc.

And for those who fear reading "on hold" titles - fear no more! Ubel Blatt is apparently recommencing from February 2011 onwards, and the mangaka plans to have the series go on for another 10 volumes or so! So for those who haven't already given this manga a shot, read up so that you can catch up with the series when it comes back from its long break. wink
