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 ...

Mixed Feelings
So happy to see this, I absolutely love the web comic, have read it more than once even while waiting for updates, but already disappointed. They skipped scenes, and sadly it was noticeable.
It felt like they rushed this episode and tried to fit way to much of the story in 30 min, this should have been at least two episodes, if not three.

Honestly, theres some others who are calling this an "introduction" to the web comic, and does not fair to well on its own.

This should not be used to supplement the first part of the web comic either, absolutely not, as this is already ...

I honestly don't know how you can enjoy this. As a fan of noblesse they butchered so much character development ( imo the complex characters are one of the main reading points) and added nothing. The story makes no sense as a fan of the manhwa, it especially makes no sense if you've never read it. The animation is clean but the fight scenes aren't even as good as something as old as yu yu hakusho, which is like 10 years old. Nice animations but story is awful, character devolpment is awful (contradictory in ways to the manhwa but even worse if you don't know ...
