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.

You must read it. That is all. Girls should provide earplugs to neighbours and relatives/flatmates as you WILL be constantly squeeing over all the bishonens. Guys may have to provide the same things due to their yells of "OH SHIT!", "AWWWW YEEEAAAH", "BADASS" and "OH THAT F**KER IS GOING DOWN".

EDIT: Ok as some other's have noted this series is getting draggy. After more exposure to manhwas I realize that Korean authors love their cliffhangers like I love my coffee: As many as I can get in as little amount of time as possible. This makes the series go rapidly from enjoyable to downright frustrating as you never feel sated with the one chapter you're given. There is a fine line between teasing your readers with what is to come and giving them nothing but crumbs. 16 pages per chap on average and you can count those that don't end on a cliffhanger with one hand. My rating will stay above "average" out of respect for the fun times I had with the series, but it surely isn't nearly as entertaining as it was before.

Why wasn't this the first series for me to leave a comment on?
I need to take a breath...

Noblesse is, to sum it up in one word, 'SOOMFGOODNESSAWESOMEZ'.
Never is there a boring arc, it has the good cliches instead of the bad ones, the characters aren't boring, and my god... THE ART. The art is probably my favorite webtoon art (minus Annarasumanara). At times it reminds me of the kind of stuff you see in western action comics (well only at the beginning, because of
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Jake's and M-23's transformations
). But don't let that turn you away, it's actually a mix done right. It's nothing like the failed attempts you see in the graphic novel section of a library (look up the manga version of X-Men to see what I mean). Then it becomes more and more sparkly bishounen/bishoujo stuff. Still very pleasing to look at.

And the characters, I love them. The females are capable of things, the guys have distict personalities, and my god they're all hot (fanservice for all sides). I wish there were more females, but hey... it is a shounen manhwa.
Rai is in a whole dimension of his own. Yes, he does seem perfect on the outside and has godly powers, but his actions have made me laugh so many times. He get pwned by Math, he can't figure out how to use a door, and what the hell... Banana? xD
Plus, it's refreshing to see a lead who's strong and stays strong.

Anyways, to end my ramble about how much I love this series, I must say I reccomend it to anyone who wants a break from the standard 'OMgesh I BE uberstrong power... FRIENDSHIPz... gurls cant fight durr' kind of shounen manga. smile

Absolutely hooked until the most recent chapter; which is sadly at a huge climax right now. sad The story is fascinating, and the cute actions of Rai are funny. (: If you haven't picked it up yet, you should get to it! Don't let the daunting 200 chapters faze you!

This is by far the best shonen currently on air, the main character Rai fascinates me, I've always wanted a manga where the protagonist was the strongest since the very beginning, but even if he is the strongest you'll be hooked by a magnific plot and the awesome characters so as by the funniest scenes that you have and will ever see. If I had to say something bad about noblesse would be that you will die waiting for the weekly release since the author likes cliff hangers too much, well actually the only bad thing is that noblesse causes a very high addiction and dependence.

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

A spectacular shounen. Sure, it may not be revolutionary in terms of plot development and twists - but it's executed flawlessly...with wonderfully spontaneously unintentional snippets of comedy from Rai biggrin...and some seriously badass fights lol.

But I love it ! it is a mystery even for me, but i read all the chapters available in one go and it was just awesome. Might be because it is the only manga I ever read where the most powerful person is the hero from the start, and because of the clean art. Anyway don't hesitate to read it, it is way better than most of the popular mangas like bleach

So, this is one of the best things I've ever read. When you first have entered this epic story, it is absolute impossible to escape again. The charecters is some of the best I've ever read about, through the plot isn't the best. It is kinda strange, because it's real torture to wait for the next chapter, but still, sometimes, you feel strangly disappinted when you finished the chapter, while you also feel sad that it already ended.
The actual plot seems to worsen in the latest chapters(180), even trought it still gets better. I really don't know how to eksplain it, read it and maybe you'll understand what I mean.
Definitely worth a read. (sorry for my english)
