Within an abandoned building in South Korea lies a white coffin, from which rises Cadis Etrama Di Raizel "Rai"—an unimaginably beautiful, dignified, and noble man. Awakening in this unknown time, Rai must seek out someone he can trust—his loyal companion, Frankenstein. To begin with, Rai attempts to blend into human society by transforming his old-fashioned clothing into the pristine blazer of the nearby Ye Ran High School. As it turns out, the principal of the school is his servant Frankenstein.

After slumbering for the past 820 years, Rai requires Frankenstein's help to adapt to the current age, so Frankenstein enrolls him as a new student in order to help him understand modern society and experience a normal life. Frankenstein's plans, however, soon go awry not only because of the problems stemming from modern society, but also unresolved conflicts from him and his master's troubled past. Left with no other choice, Rai must resort to using his mysterious power to protect those he holds dear.

No explicit story spoilers, but story and character structure

If i had to condense my review in one sentence: Huge wasted potential.

The plot usually goes like this: Strong enemies appear -> non-important Heroes losen - > Boss Heroes appear -> win -> research data found -> now we are stronger! -> Rinse and repeat 500 times.

It has the Dragonball Z element into it without an equally likeable cast or story structure. The reason are the two Characters Frankenstein and Raizel. They are always so on top of things, like extremely on top, there is no real danger or any lasting consequence. They just walk through things. read more

The Overall feel of this manwha (Korean manga) is amazing. When I first started reading this series years back, I thought the artwork was a bit off in the beginning. Be patient and the artwork will vastly improve. The comedy found within Noblesse is in a league of its own. You will find yourself literally Lol'ing with the humor that Rai brings to the series as he tries to cope with his new surroundings. The action sequences are pure win, leaving chills and goosebumps for avid readers.

The story revolves around a vampire theme, and (without spoiling it for you) I find that although it read more

Noblesse- is it because its a manhwa? Since its not from japan, its not what you would expect? Honestly? I have absolutely no idea. All I know is that this manhwa is unlike any other vampire story Ive ever read, novels, manga, manhwa- this is definitely original, and great at that!

Story-10: Like I expressed before, the plot is most definitely not-your-average-bloodsucking-vampire-story. It actually took me a while to pick up this manhwa and read it. I had so many recommendations to read it already, but it just really wasn't piquing my interest. Then finally I picked it up. My first thought? "Umm, really?" I almost read more

Honestly... Noblesse despite being Korean (and i seriously don't care) is just amazing~... the characters in it are great, both in serious ways and in humour and the humour present sort of makes you feel like one of those facepalm moments where you can't help but laugh...
the story line itself is filled with twists and turns and it's great as you have no idea where the story leads which is great for a break from the predictable storylines that can be found. It is honestly a great read... and is unusual in it's art which is surprisingly in colour, that was a surprise to me read more
