-This manga was one of my all time favorite when it first started to come out
-It has a strong start all the way until the hiatus
-After the hiatus, the degree in story/plot was not up to its usually standard
-Art is still amazing through out any volume
-I would like to see more flash backs of the time when there was war
-Even so it has not been great as of late, I believe it was a worth while read and hope it will get better again

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.

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.

geez ppl. stop comparing it to beserk. if u wanna comment about how berserk is god or sumthin, go to the berserk thread. n for those complaining about how horrible Ubel Blatt is, at least read the first 3 chaps. itz pretty awesum if u dun jus read the first few pages n say, berserk ripoff, next. besides, the fight scenes being fast are a GOOD thing. i mean, do we really wanna read a manga that has ONE fight scene that lasts like several sumthin chapters (cough cough Bleach cough cough).

besides, koinzell is a character w/ depth. i mean srsly, his motives, his lack of support, etc. he seems omnipotent, but u c his limits later on. besides, koinzell got style. XD

The story has been pretty entertaining so far and the art is very nice. This is authors' first attempt in this genre, so the plot seems to be simple so far, but couple of events hint that it might get more complicated in the future volumes. Never less it's a good read. I really liked the art, it's refreshing to see a more "cute" art in a story that mostly focus on battles and the author has good grasp of costume design. Plenty of lolis running around in tiny panties too.

As for people complaining about it being (or not being) berserk.. wtf?! Fantasy setting+antihero doesn't equals "berserk". The author doesn't attempt to imitate berserk at all, so it is beyond me, why people compare it to "berserk" at all. You can compare apples with oranges, but the comparison will go as far as that they are both fruits, same here.

I don't get why everyone is comparing Beserk to Ubel Blatt. Nearly every series has some connections to another manga, either by influencing another, or being influenced. Take for example, 666Satan w/ Naruto: Funny characters, major timeskip, kaballah/demon-abosrbing thingy.... (granted the authors are twin brothers)
Overall the characters are coming along nicely, though i think that v0 might've been better off not revealing Koinzell's true identity & purpose (though you can already guess why even only reading like, the first chapter~)

My only question/complaint is that i can only find v0 and the first 6 chaps of v1. Normally, i'd wait for the next scanlations to come out, but i heard that the scanlators (sushi counter?) isn't active anymore. Even if it was, I don't know where to read it... TT_TT

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.

Even if it doesn't give me that feeling of "I will be something special" I do not judge it harshly because I just read the opening and the first Volume so I do not read much to judge.

There is some poster in here that says that this manga is a copy of Berserk and that it doesn't worth the 9s and 10s people gave it. I say he can't even understand a storyline difference even if it hits him on the head. To say this manga is even close to Berserk is probably one of the .. ummmm silliest ,cause I can;t say anything else, things I ever heard. Berzerk has tons or gore and splatter and it gives you a heavy aura that feels like pulling you down. Ubel Blatt is more light and its drawings can a calmer feeling and they are unable to give you the same feelings or even close to that Berzerk does. Also I will not comment the difference of the "explicit violence and sexual scenes" as he said they contain because Ubel just gives me the feeling its an anime with a boy cutting off people and letting them die and being a bit naughty while Gutts cuts thousands of monsters and enemies to pieces covering himself with blood.
[edit by mod, Warning: Berserk related spoiler]
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Also Gutts fights first because he wants revenge from the man he thought friend, second to protect the girl he loves and third to prevent his "fate" which means him dying while
(if you haven't read the Volume 0 then this is a spoiler but its not major but still a spoiler)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the boy hero here just wants to take revenge on the people that killed him and decided to call themselves the "7 heroes"
Finally I want to say that just because both use the same sources to create the manga it doesn't mean they are the same. If its like that then Ares, Claymore, Berserk, Lodoss Wars, this one and who knows how many other manga are the same so lets give all except Berserk a 5 and ignore them.

This manga has a very good storyline, actually much better than I expected and I am glad that while I was visiting KMT I decided to check what their releases are. Its very easy to read and their drawings are pretty clear unlike Berserk and that makes it even more light. It seems pretty fast paced but it doesn't seem in fast forward like some that make you feel a year passed just by reading a chapter.

Pretty good job and I recommend it. At least read Volume 0 and after that decide. Well sadly its pretty early since it has been translated up to the middle or a bit further of Volume 2 but I am hoping it will change its slow release pace not of the translations but the actual releases. Almost 4 years for only 6 releases isn;t the best thing. I guess it will be slow like Berserk so they will be 2 of my manga that I will love and wait a whole life to see the ending ^^;

Hehe Finally the second volume was translated! I can't be more happy. I am already reading it and I am happy to see whats going on next. Well not much to add it still cool and the story progress slowly as always.

Also I wanted to comment on the ***** people that instead of putting here a decent rating they argue and i am talking both about the ones that accuse haters and the ones that accuse lovers. If you do not like it just post why you do not like it and believe it worths below 0. If you love it just put a 10 and write with joy why you did that too. For the ******** that comment on the comments and likes or dislikes of other people. Ger a life.

well i agree that this is indeed different from berserk, and sad to say i find berserk better..i'm not really into lolicon and i find the use of sexuality in this manga a bit tasteless or perverted even..and like what some other people said it is more of a shounenish than a seininish in terms of maturity(well maybe except the sex part). initially the story doesnt have much punch in it or a bit immature, but it gets better along the way...

characters-wise i dont really have a favorite at this moment and i dont think it will change soon, since noone seems likable, and in terms of character dev't, i dont see any, yet..

on the possitive side, the story gets better along the way, the art is quite good, and the action scenes are exciting enough..
