Truthfully it feels like its been a bloody long age, since Noblesse finally began progressing; not that that is what happened in these chapters. 324 was more cliffhanger than full blown story development, and 323 was all about action, not bad combinations for a Manhwa chapter.
But I am starting to get impatient.
M-21’s battle with the elder is short lived, his new powers quickly fading at a crucial moment. The Lord makes her intentions for visiting known.
That was almost annoying, watching M-21 go down almost easily, after coming so close to finally achieving a modicum of victory for his group. Well, he didn’t really go down easily, and truth be told it was fun finally watching a member of Rai’s knights finally go toe to toe (or as close to it as possible) with a powerful foe.
But that ended too quickly. It is quite odd, that Noblesse has a tendency to remind me of Bleach. Few other series that I have come across waste as much time as Bleach, whose chapters feel so short as to never have mattered. And it wouldn’t be completely accurate to compare Bleach and Noblesse.
Because Noblesse does have considerably more content per chapter; only it would help if more happened. M-21 more or less loses his battle with the elder, only to be saved by Gegutel. The Lord makes what might seem like a threatening move against Rai.
Not a whole lot. Not for two whole chapters. Admittedly, Noblesse does more to feel out its chapters than Bleach, with chapter 323 using a good chunk of its pages to allow the M21 battle to play out in full; and it was mildly entertaining, watching the two werewolves go at it.
But we have spent so many chapters without actual story progression that I am literally on the edge of my seat, waiting for something interesting to happen, something more than great fights.
RATING: 6/10, as would be expected both chapter still entertain, just not on the same level I was expecting. And there is little suspense in the way the last chapter ended. Most people will agree that The Lord’s visit is purposed to assist rather than harm Rai
