Well, that was a good punch line. I forgot about contracts, considering they have only been brought up a few times but never shown or elaborated on.

Noblesse chapter 232
LOL... The author seems to indulge my whim... Franky being the devil... While Rai is the source of all Noble's power...

The very basic that Rai and Franky exist for each other

Where are contracts mentioned in the first place? I must have glossed over that. Clearly Rai has a contract with Frankenstein (or so it seems to me anyway) but do we know any of the details about what this means?

Wait, where has it ever been said/implied that Rai is the source of all the Nobles' power?

M-21 mentioned it after Rai enabled him to go full werewolf. I think it might have come up in passing a couple other times, but I can't think of any specific examples.

"Yeh've forged a magnificent sword."

"This one's only practice. The real sword I intend to forge will be three times longer."

"Can there really be a sword as monstrous as that in this world?"

"Yes. I can see that sword... Somewhere out there..."


Tower of God (Batoto, since the Batoto link on the scanlator's page is wrong) and Girls of the Wilds updated. Both are pretty okay.

ToG: Viole's near-immunity levels of magic resistance continue to be amusing. I'm a little tired of Prisoner's Dilemma variants after all the ones I've seen in fiction, but I'm sure I'll like it more when I see more of the game in action.

GotW: The end-of-chapter revelation is underwhelming. Jae Gu already came to that conclusion himself on-camera, as it were. It's only been like five chapters. In that time, he already decided to fight and stormed into a school to beat someone senseless for hurting his siblings. His reaction to that should be "okay, I'll do that."

Honestly, I was successfully convinced it was an unfortunate accident and the situation was now tragedy instead of villainy, so I was surprised.

I guess from now on I'll trust that that people with red hair are the devil incarnate.

The Breaker New Waves: 68

I hope they interrupted him in the middle of self-training so he is full of Wonderdrug™. It's been far too long since he hosed somebody up in public.

I really doubt Shi-oon would be able to do anything to this guy in a fight. In the spirit training that prodigy was destroying him with a glance and even he's intimidated by the new guy.

The fan-service in this one actually made me laugh. Song's face at the end was terrifying

This comic is so derivative but somehow so entertaining, I don't entirely understand how. Also not everyone with red hair is evil- boxer girl isn't.

Says you. Personally, I can't see how you can say that this isn't the face of pure unadulterated evil.



On another note, anyone know of other manga/manwha that are like GotW?

The publisher apparently went under in 2008, so the manhwa was discontinued. The novels it is based on are still ongoing; there are around 26 and the manhwa covers only maybe 2.

Oh definitely but if he has been working on his foot techniques he really only has to dodge him for a split second before the Elder stomps him. There's also the other retainer standing near him who is pretty bad rear end. Of course this probably means he won't avoid him because if he does I don't see how these guys make it out alive.

I really just want Shioon to be fully recovered, trained by the Sunwoo/Nine Arts Dragon's videos, and said Nine Arts Dragon to show back up already.

No, partly since I just marathoned it, but it's also in the midst of yet another biggest fight yet. Even better, someone besides Id has to fight.

The art in Id has gotten a lot better for the last 40 chapters or so. In the beginning I could never tell what the hell was going on in any action scene. It might be easier to discern on a hardcopy than on a computer screen though.

Well now this thread has introduced me to a lot of good poo poo. I read through annarasomething and my heart is beating recently and enjoyed both of those. Would definitely recommend these to others. Don't know how I didn't know about Noblesse til now cuz that poo poo is incredible.

Mura posted:

Pretty much all of the manhwa and webtoons that I read have already been posted except for Orange Marmalade.

It's a romance comic featuring a vampire (it's not nearly as bad as you think) where the romance part moves at a snails pace, but has other elements that help tie it all together. Outside of pacing issues, I quite like it. Then again, I'm a sucker for shoujo tropes and all that poo poo, so YMMV.

Ended up reading this and enjoying it too . Anyway, the pace is pretty drat slow which is just painful for romancy poo poo. New chapter out today

Everything going on is making it seem like the love interest is about to find out about the vampire thing pretty soon. I'm hoping she'll tell him herself instead of having pretty much no choice in the matter like what happened with the other girl, but it looks like she's starting to get backed into a corner so that might not happen.
