13+ Best Manhwa Like NOBLESSE (Recommendations)

We all have, at some point, had the realization that there is more to manga and anime than what we have previously been led to believe. My realization came last year with the release of Kami no Tou (also Tower of God) and God of High School. The successful adaptation of these two sparked my interest in the vast world of Manhwa, and the release of Noblesse.

Noblesse revolves around a vampire, Rai or Raizel, who awakens after being asleep for over 800 years. To learn more about the world, our protagonist seeks the help of his loyal servant Frankenstein. He ends up being enrolled at a high school where he makes new human friends.

 The story follows Rai’s adventure as he tries to adapt to the new world. Like in any other vampire story, there are other vampires, monsters, and secret evil organizations to face. In Rai’s case, the secret organization is known as The Union.

For Noblesse fans out there, and new to the Manhwa genre, here are some of the best Webtoons/Manhwa like Noblesse that you ought to read.

What would you do if you lived in a world where people had different powers and abilities? That does sound pretty cool. Now imagine you were the only one in this world who was just “ordinary”.

John is an ordinary boy, with no powers or abilities to show off as his schoolmates. For this reason, he gets bullied around. However, he has a dark secret. His father left him a copy of a very mysterious book, a book that could change the world.

Reason To Read:

Back in 2014, an unknown substance, SDE01, was discovered by some Russians. Many argued that the energy was supernatural, transcending the laws of nature themselves. The discovery marked the beginning of a new world

As expected, the use of this “mana” was restricted by governments around the world. However, there is a red hooded person out there with access to forbidden spells and he uses them to kill criminals. Nobody knows who this vigilante is nor what his motives are.

Will detective Kim manage to catch the vigilante, or will he adopt the vigilante’s sense of justice? What connection does he have with the target?

10/10
29/40

Status: 284 Chapters

Reason To Read:

If you had the power to see ghosts, would you help them pass on to the next world? Or would you just stay oblivious to it all? The manhwa establishes early that ghosts exist, arising from people and can be trapped by people.

As a child, Simoon Lee, our protagonist, had the ability to see and interact with ghosts. But his grandmother, a shaman, intervened and sealed this innate ability passed through the family. His powers begin to awaken while investigating one of the cases as a homicide detective.

The manhwa’s artwork is excellent, the fights are exciting and made to feel realistic. The characters, including the funny exorcist Tenka, and the ghosts are well developed, likable, and have unique personalities.

Don’t get me started on the ghosts.

29/40

Status: 177 Chapters

Reason To Read:

Thirty years have passed since the appearance of “troubles”, monsters that attacked humans ruthlessly. Around the same time, another group called “Traces” showed up to oppose the troubles. However, there is prejudice against “Traces” since they are not considered to be human

Humans live in fear of the two, leading to the creation of facilities (ideally prisons) that admit traces. The story follows a young boy, Sa Ghang-gwon, born a Trace with the power to manipulate ice. He ends up living on the streets after his parents discover his newfound powers.

Like any capable protagonist, Sa Ghong-gwon gains experience by fighting troubles and scavenging dumpsters to survive. One day, he is nearly killed by a trouble and ends up in the care of a human family. They are unaware of Sa Ghong-gwon’s powers but for how long can he keep this secret hidden?

Similarities With Noblesse:

  • MC hides their powers from those close to them

29/40

Status: 115 Chapters

Reason To Read:

In a not-so-distant future, there was an apocalypse. Before the apocalypse, a human was sent back to try and prevent the end from happening. But unforeseen circumstances led to the hero’s death

Fortunately, a seed of hope was left behind. This seed took the form of an app, Warble, that transported people into the underworld. The story focuses on two protagonists, Jude Park, a human, and Sarah Lee, a zombie.

What is Warble you might want to ask? Warble represents a divide between the Underworld, where the demons and monsters reside, and the Overworld, the home to humans. Warble forces people to play the game as it is the only way out of the underworld. 

The storyline is unique and the characters are quite likable, especially after Sarah realizes she is a zombie. Who wouldn’t possibly want their own zombie familiar?

Similarities With Noblesse:

  • Supernatural
  • Fantasy
  • Action

  • Mystery

 

9. Hellper

11/20
9/10
10/10
30/40

Status: 188 Chapters

Reason To Read:

Hellper is not like any manhwa or manga for that matter, you have ever come across. Even though the artwork designs are colored, the manhwa remains mostly black and white with the occasional red highlighting points of interest.

Hellper explores the concept of life and death through the view of a biker who doesn’t accept that he is to be sent to hell. Through his adventure, he encounters others like him in search of 100 black bands that can be exchanged for one white one. Apparently, white wristbands lead to rebirth or heaven.

The fights are super fun to read, super well thought and fast-paced, something that’s hard to achieve in such a format. The exploration of the dark side of humanity is what makes it a fun read. Behind all the fun and action, lies a dark secret to the biker’s life.

Similarities With Noblesse:

  • The MC has OP powers from the very beginning and in a new changed world.
  • Supernatural
  • Action
  • Horror
  • Mystery

 

8. I’m The Grim Reaper

Similarity Dark Fantasy Art Total
12/20

31/40

Status: Ongoing

Reason To Read:

In the afterlife, Satan is responsible for creating Grim Reapers. Grim Reapers are souls of sinners who through a contract offer their services to Satan. Their sole task is to kill one sinner a day or they are sent back to the different levels of hell.

This is the story of one such sinner, Scarlet. Due to the uniqueness of her sin, which I still do not know, she gets chosen by Satan. However, in her quest to fulfill her daily quota of sinners, she befriends Chase and a sinner. Scarlet keeps him in the dark about her identity (like always) as the two try to uncover the truth about her past.

Grim Reaper’s artwork is visually stunning, where it does not shy away from gore and death. The manhwa’s illustration of the worst aspects of humanity complements its dark and violent vibe. Further, it explores morality from a different perspective where the protagonist has to look for people who are more deserving of death than others.

Similarities With Noblesse:

  • MC hides their powers from those close to them.
  • Supernatural
  • Fantasy
  • Horror
  • Action

 

7. Covenant

Status: Ongoing

Reason To Read:

The world has changed, demons roam the world. People from the church are tasked with defeating these demons. These chosen people get their power by praying to various angels and God for various powers and abilities.

And then there is Ezra. I’ll have to admit, Ezra might just be an idiot. This perception of our protagonist is established in the first few chapters. He seems not to take things seriously, forgetting the most important aspects of his Christian faith, and this is what is likable about him.

The artwork is among the best I’ve seen so far. You just have to see it for yourself. I was hooked in the first chapter after seeing animation as Ezra activates his tattoos, and pulls a whip out of his body.

Lemme not give out too much right now.

Similarities With Noblesse:

  • Fantasy

6. Under Prin

14/20

10/10
32/40

Status: 325 Chapters

Reason To Read:

Lord Perdien or Jin-Ryu, a really powerful demon, is hiding out in the human world as a musician. Imagine that! The story follows Jin’s journey and attempts to make sure his son Miryu lives a peaceful life. However, the sudden arrival of a new guest, an elite succubus, disrupts the demon’s simple lifestyle.  

The manhwa’s story is original, compared to most vampire stories I’ve read. The writer has explored the father and son relationship in a funny way, an aspect that makes it quite memorable. However, the development of the story is slow and can get frustrating sometimes to read (the comic has 326 episodes).

Similarities With Noblesse:

  • The protagonist is overpowered and trying to hide in a human world
  • Supernatural
  • Fantasy
  • Action

Status: 253 Chapters

Reason To Read:

Unfortunately, the manhwa has been discontinued after the release of its 253rd chapter in October 2016. The project began back in 2011 on Naver. The manhwa became so popular that it led to a complete redesign of the storyline and artwork.

Lark is not like other children his age, or any human at all. His red eyes, a defining feature among vampires, have led others to brand him as a “monster”. In such an oppressive world, Lark meets another kid with red eyes by the name Setz.

Until then, Setz is the only other person who doesn’t see him as a monster. The two hit it off, becoming friends almost immediately. Tragedy strikes where there is the possibility that Lark might be sent back to the orphanage.

Setz responds by inviting Lark to go with him to his home. I know, it does sound like Lark is the perfect friend. The story explores the budding friendship, and their adventures once in the world of vampires.

4. Spirit Hunter

10/10
34/40

Status: Ongoing

Reason To Read:

I’m not sure if I should include this manhwa here. It’s quite new, with only ten chapters. It starts with a clear description that depictions of violence in it might be upsetting to some readers. And I am one to never back down from a challenge.

A man with a dark past, is in search of more spirits to kill for energy. One day, he encounters a young girl, a ghost, with enough energy to rival his own. However, she has no recollection of who or what she is and the two embark on an adventure to find out.

Even though it is quite short at the moment, Spirit Hunter is quite interesting. The fights between the MC and monsters are OP, especially when he shows off his powers. The dialogue and interactions with the ghost girl leave with a sense of curiosity as to why she is so valuable. And by the way, the King’s men and other spirit hunters are after her.

Similarities With Noblesse:

  • An OP protagonist
  • Fantasy
  • Supernatural.
  • Action
  • Horror
  • Mystery

Status: Ongoing

Reason To Read:

I bet it does sound like another story about people with abilities, and of course, hunting vampires. The plot of the story is exactly as it sounds. But there are a few twists that do make it to be an interesting read and unique from others.

For example, in this, the people hunting vampires belong to a secret organization made up of one family, The Kims’. The story follows the adventure of their youngest brother Choncuc Kim, who gets enrolled in a school that is more than what it seems. He soon learns about his true past before getting entangled in the family business.

Reason To Read:

In the beginning, a door was opened, releasing demons into the human world. These actions set a peaceful world into chaos. A certain king begged the gods for a power that would help them fight the evil demons.

In response, the gods marked certain people, granting them access to special powers and abilities. They came to be referred to as Magicians as people worshipped them for fighting away the demons. However, nobody questioned if it really was a god who granted them these powers.

Black Haze revolves around an overpowered MC, Rood Chrishi, with a very mysterious past. Rood is famous for being The Black Magician, the strongest of all magicians.  His only connection to the world seems to be with his master who comes up with the weirdest missions and even bullies him.

In one of these missions, Rood is forced to attend a high school to investigate why one of the students is being called a “monster”. Rood soon learns that there is more to the school, with demons lurking on the school grounds. How hard can his mission get as Rood tries to save other students while protecting his identity?
