Long ago lived the "nobles," an ancient race of immortal supernatural beings. They were revered as rulers and gods. Among the nobles was the "Noblesse," a powerful individual shrouded in mystery named Cadis Etrama di Raizel, or "Rai." Upon awakening in South Korea after an 820-year-long sleep, Rai sets to find his loyal and devoted servant, Frankenstein, whom he discovers to be the current director of Ye Ran High School. In his wish to learn more about modern civilization, Rai enrolls as a student to better experience life in the modern world.

Noblesse: Awakening details the beginning of Rai's new life as a high school student as he spends time with friends and fights threats both human and supernatural in order to prevent their schemes from harming Korea.

There are several words that come in mind when trying to describe this ONA, and the most suitable one would be that it is hilarious, even with the underlying, or rather, main theme of this work: vampires and Frakenstein. Yes, you read right, Frankenstein and his very master that awoke after his long slumber. It must be noted that is has its share of action as well. Noblesse: Awakening is an adaptation of the of the korean manhwa Noblesse.

The story surrounding vampires is nothing new, yet the fact that it incorporates both Frankenstein and his master, Cadis Etrama di Raizel, is something I have read more

This is an adaptation for one of the best manhwa out there, Noblesse.
Let me give u a head start if you want to watch this OVA. dont expect that it will cover up most of the manhwa since this is only a 30 minute adaptation and there'll be some fast pacing in the story but still for me I find it enjoyable to watch.

STORY: 8/10

forgive me if I only scored it 8 but the OVA has made me crave for more. the ending was not that bad. I JUST wished they made it longer lol. I also gave it an 8 since the OVA hasnt read more

if you want the short version: Id say this is more enjoyable to people who are fans of and have read the manhwa than people new to the series, so if you havent read that already then you definitely should, but maybe hold of on watching this till then.

I just wanted to make this review so that people dont get the wrong idea about this series, whilst i did very much enjoy this ova i think the pacing was ridiculous and kind of ruined would could of been an even better experience. Its been a couple of years since i read the section of the read more

I think that anime adaptions of manhwa and manhua are greatly encouraged due to a lot of them having really great stories to tell. One of these is noblesse which is a brilliant manhwa that uses something as generic as vampires and creates something extraordinary with these vampires. However, Noblesse Awakening while being an enjoyable watch, it does not capture the integrity of the source material.

Of course I can't be too harsh, this ONA is only 30 minutes or so and its hard to pack the first 80 chapters of a manga into 30 minutes. Obviously I knew they were going cut out read more
