Production I.G Makes Anime of Korean Vampire Comic Noblesse
The digital comic publisher Line Webtoon announced on Thursday that Production I.G (Psycho-Pass, Ghost in the Shell) animated a 30-minute short of the online Korean comic Noblesse by Jeho Son and Kwangsu Lee. Shunsuke Tada (Kuroko's Basketball, Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations, STARMYU) and Kazuto Nakazawa (animation director on Kill Bill, Samurai Champloo) directed Noblesse: Awakening animation, which is debuting on the Crunchyroll streaming service and Webtoon's own website on Thursday.
Son and Lee launched the comic in Line Webtoon in Korean in 2007, and it now has almost 400 chapters which have garnered over 2 billion page views. The first chaper of its first comic spinoff, Noblesse: Rai's Adventure, is also debuting on Thursday alongside the animated short. The 10-episode spinoff will be available for a limited time within the Line Webtoon website and app (via iOS or Android).
Noblesse: Awakening will be available to Crunchyroll members worldwide beginning today and LINE Webtoon will launch a 10-episode limited edition spin-off series titled Noblesse: Rai's Adventure, with the first episode currently avaiable on the platform.
Ok i will certainly watch this, i am reading the manhwa as it comes out and while the progress in chapters isn't too fast (they'd need to squeeze at least 5 chapters into a single episode) what i see is that this is pretty rushed however only when i see it can i make a decent ordeal since a lot of the beginning of the manhwa wasn't that interesting. So in all honesty the OVA won't cover a lot, though still iirc it covers about 60 chapters. From the PV the art-style seems to be caught rather well although a bit more detailed than i can remember.
I myself tbh am more interested in when the other OVA of Noblesse gets translated, which is what happens prior to the series' beginning and is more of an extension to the story itself, a bit which hasn't been shown in the manhwa although it's got a different artsyle and i doubt it can be considered canon though my guess is most likely not. It fits perfectly within the story though.
I watched the OVA today. 2 notable things: handsome vampire (well only 2 guys. One was named Frankenstein. I could mistake him for one) and gorgeous animation.
It's really an eye candy in this show.
I see it what others have said, the OVA is bit rushed. The three kids, we barely get much on them. Noblesse is still a mystery. We just learn more about the 2 guys who look for Noblesse; albeit one guy died trying to save his friend.
Ok i watched it a few days ago and i have to say the OVA was quite rushed. That were about 60 chapters iirc crammed into one half-hour OVA. The animation also felt slightly out of place and odd at times although i didn't dislike it for it was quite detailed and beautiful.
Taka Well about all of the early chapters were 6 page chapters, but i checked again and it were 77 and a bit chapter. The pacing early was almost daily releases or once per two days, but they changed it to about 30 page chapters when they started to release weekly which is what the pacing is now. They skipped a big part of those chapters though, which is why it felt rushed.
Taka I guess about daily releases were just too troublesome so he went over to weekly ones. Right now we're in the 7th volume of the manhwa at nearly 400 chapters, of which the last 200 are all weekly releases. The series has been going for quite some time.
Dream: Spice and Wolf's the next title I'm rewatching. Stay tuned.

Taka: My favorite episode in Samurai Champloo was probably Ep 22.

Dream: The one with zombies excavating for treasure? Think that one's the most out there of episodes in the series. Mine's probably the one involving Mugen busting a counterfeit coin ring while trying to get nookie from a ninja girl disguised as a prostitute.

Master Menos: Updates complete. As for a life update, I'm quitting my fast food job soon. Was good for my very first job, but things are getting FAR too chaotic for my tastes.
Feb 6, 2020 22:06:13 GMT
Dream: Far as job front goes on my end, still waiting on projects to start up with my freelance job. Beyond that, nothing new for other work in my search.

Dream: Just completed Spice and Wolf. Plan to work on a review for it sometime tomorrow. Too late to have any inhibition to get one done from my end.

Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.
Feb 9, 2020 3:24:18 GMT
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!
Feb 11, 2020 6:31:08 GMT
Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
