My senses are tingling. Are we to expect an anime version of Noblesse?
A marvelous creation of Jeho Son and Kwangsu Lee, the Noblesse is a manhwa published by Naver Comics/Line Webtoon. As of February 2, 2016, the Noblesse manhwa has reached Chapter 391. Publication of chapters are once a week every Tuesday.
I have already made a review of Noblesse, since it’s my first manhwa. Anyway, to give a short background, manhwas are Korean comics. What I love about manhwas is that most of them are colored, that’s why reading them is more exciting.
I started reading Noblesse way back, I think, two years ago. That was when Manga Traders was still active and in operation. Then, the creators of Noblesse took a vacation due to health issues. It took them a long time before they continued the publication of Noblesse. Before they came back, the illustration were not a bit good and the story was fast paced. However, I think they had to employ another illustrator. The change was drastic, because the graphics were really amazing. However, the story is dragging. Waiting for one chapter every week makes time seem to tick slowly. And just now, I chanced upon a YouTube video published by Line Webtoon last February 4, 2016.
The video is entitled “Noblesse: Awakening animation.” On the description box, it says:
Production I.G, the legendary producers of “Ghost in the Shell” and “Psycho-Pass” are bringing you the epic LINE Webtoon series, Noblesse.
It covers the beginning of Noblesse manwha. The looks of the characters stay true to the manhwa. However, I think that M-21 looks more handsome in the animation. Haha. The video is roughly 31 minutes and worth watching. Will there be more Noblesse Animations that we should expect soon?
