Humans live their lives driven by ambition and greed, prepared to kill their own kind with no hesitation. Since the beginning of humanity, wars have raged on throughout the human world, with the other races watching on.

A victim of one war and orphaned, Ashleen was saved by the lord of the werewolves, Muzaka. Muzaka had abandoned his duties as lord and left the werewolf clan, travelling with Ashleen to secure her happiness. However, during his absence, members of Muzaka's species began orchestrating further wars on humans, disgusted by Muzaka's compassion. A secret and powerful organization established itself in the human realm, intending to manipulate Muzaka. When he is misinformed by the Union, Muzaka starts directing his rage toward the humans. Can his only friend, Cadis Etrama Di Raizel, the Noblesse, stop Muzuka's madness?

Set 820 years before the events of Noblesse, Noblesse: Pamyeol-ui Sija depicts the tragic history of Muzaka, and how it led to the Noblesse's indefinite slumber.

Okay, it's pretty hard to review one episode, but let's still try.

Was it worth the wait? The answer is surely yes. Except for an interesting story of its own, it also gives background to the manwha (Later on they mention it, but not much. Guess they thought this one is enough). Things that aren't really explained suddenly get clearer. Unforunately, there are some question marks.

We didn't learn much about Rai (Except for how he got to the 820 years sleep), but we surely learned a lot about Muzaka and the reason for why all the story in the manwha actually started.

I've heard this series was good but never read the manwha, and so speaking as someone coming in with literally zero idea of what to expect, it was not well portrayed. I think they set it up for something good, but then it just stopped after one episode. It wasn't enough to make me want to watch more, and it wasn't all that great in terms of animation.

Soundtrack was awesome, definitely will check that out on YouTube later, but everything else was just a bit meh if you don't know about the story at all.

As far as characters go, they seemed like they could be read more

Ok let's review this OVA before the actual series is airing, so we can build the hype first.

Note that I've finished reading the manhwa and actually I'm so hyped for the story and action. And I'm kinda curious what actually happened to Rai before his slumber begun.

Story: 8/10

Noblesse's story is the key why it is one of the most popular manhwa out there aside the flawless art. It brings curiosity every time Rai moves, especially in this OVA which it tells the background story of Raizel. The background story is about Rai when he still lives in his hometown with his friend werewolf friend Muzaka. read more

Noblesse: The Beginning of Destruction is the first ever animated adaptation of the manhwa titled Noblesse, that very recently received an anime adaptation by one of the most renowned anime studios called Production I.G, which is why I became inclined to watch the OVA.

First of all, I think that watching this OVA, and then the ONA, is kinda essential prior to watching the TV anime adaptation of Noblesse (which I didn't do), as it gives more backstory to some of the characters and a bit more explanation to how the world works.

Noblesse: The Beginning of Destruction primarily focuses on Muzaka, the lord of the werewolves, read more
