Noblesse Awakening Episode 0 Review

Noblesse Awakening – That was unbelievably surprising for me, I didn’t expect that my most favorite Manwha Noblesse would get an Anime  adaption. So today i got the honors of watching the “Episode 0” of Noblesse Awakening and it was pure epic and that too in every way, whether its story, animation, art and the quality. Everything was way off the charts.

Noblesse Awakening Synopsis

Cadis E. di Raizel, the noblest of all vampires, who wakes up from 820-years long sleep and starts a new life as a high school student. His peaceful days as a student are soon interrupted by a group of attackers known as the “Unions.” Noblesse follows Raizel and his loyal servant, Frankenstein, as they constantly protect and save Raizel’s new human friends from the mysterious threats.

Noblesse Awakening Review

Cadis E. di Raizel, as mentioned in the synopsis is a vampire that woke up from his 820 years long sleep, The world has changed a lot from the time when he was awake and active. In order to start a new life Raizel visits his servant Frankenstein, who is a school principal now. Raizel asks Frankenstein to enroll him (Raizel) as a high school student so that he can start a new life.

Raizel starts his new life peacefully and makes a few good friends he starts loving it, but his peaceful life doesn’t last longer. A group of people are in search for Raizel because of which Raizel’s friends become target, and eventually his friends are caught up in an incident. Now its upto Raizel and Frankenstein to protect their human friends.

So in short this was the short summary of episode zero or to be more accurate this is actually what happened in the episode itself. Since this was first episode there is nothing to talk about when it comes to the story because for the story to progress it almost take a complete season, as a result its hard to predict anything or give any opinion when it comes to story and that’s same for the development for characters too.

Art Character design and Animation

Noblesse Awakening
Noblesse Awakening – Characters

Its been such a long time since we got such mature character design, regarding the art, its a blend of Shoujo and Shounen style. But the Main character red eyes or the Main character himself reminds me of Sebastian from the Anime Black Butler. Although Sebastian is demon and Raizel is Vampire.

Also we should not neglect the fact the Animation is also one of the few things because of which the Anime is off the charts, especially when it comes to fight scenes the Animation is something that will give you goosebumps all the way till the ending. Which also makes you realize that how epic and badass the main character really is.

Fight scenes

When it comes to Vampire and Supernatural Anime which has the art style which is blend of Shoujo and Shounen style, You can’t expect much from the fight scenes, since they are not that epic, the story of the Anime helps to fill that empty part of epicness. You can take “Vampire Knight” as an example. But Noblesse is completely different. The character design and art is a blend of Shoujo and Shounen style but it also makes the characters epic and dominating when it comes to fight scenes.

The level of sophistication and grace is especially high in fights which give characters a feel that you would get from Nobles. I guess that’s why the title is Noblesse. At the same time it perfectly shows the extreme level of brutality you can ever see. Sophistication, grace and brutality, the combination of these three factors increases the epicness of fights which makes this Anime a must watch.

Background Music

I especially liked the background music behind every scene because of which you get epic feel, Its the same with opening and ending. There are no vocals in opening and ending but music without vocal can also give you the feeling of excitement and awesomeness.

Wrapping the review

My reaction on this episode was – So epic and amazing, So beautiful, So badass and so funny, especially the Main character during a funny moment shows gracefulness makes the scene more funny!! the episode left me wanting more and more but after digging some information i found that this episode is like “Oneshot” meaning there won’t be a continuation. Although i really want this Anime to be continued. Though the Manwha is epic the Anime can make it more epic! Who knows maybe they can continue if the popularity of this oneshot goes beyond their expectations.
