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.

Noblesse is a dramatic story piece with a hidden agenda. A compelling story meshed with vivid and interesting characters. Please do not let the early art put you off for even a second. By the time it's gotten exponentially better, you'll be hundreds of chapters deep and won't have even realized.

Characters: 9/10 - We are first introduced to Cadis Etrama di Raizel "Rai", a man of few words and even fewer facial expressions. Rai's character recieves the least amount of growth and for good reason. He's been alive for thousands of years. He's done plenty of growing. Immediately ...

Minor spoilers review - completed 2021

Story- a manwha with so much premise but ultimately ruined by the writer wanting to be done with it. It started off so great, Rai and shinwoon especially, seeing Rai interact with society - then just went downhill with repetative arcs. A quick summary of the story is werewolves , vampires ( nobles) and humans fighting essentially over centuries in secret, with Rai being 'the noble' and just wants a normal life. Eventually the union ( a mixture of all three with evil purposes ) start to do things and things escalate. Its not a bad concept at all right? ...

Mixed Feelings
Plot is a bit strange and not held together well, lots of filler fight scenes especially in the later arcs. Lots of plot armor too, however it’s a pretty good concept and I enjoyed reading it very much.

Characters were very funny and realistic with the way they behaved, getting to see everyone become friends and build relationships really helped bring the story together.

The art is a bit weird at the beginning. (Almost reminds me of yaoi art that everyone makes fun of for some reason lol.) However it greatly improves throughout the series and is incredibly good at the end of the manga.

Overall, ...
