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.
Crunchyroll revealed on Sunday at a panel at the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo event that it will debut the the Crunchyroll Original anime of Jeho Son and Kwangsu Lee's Noblesse manhwa on October 6 at 9:00 a.m. EDT, with the stream available in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and the CIS. Crunchyroll also unveiled a new visual for the anime.
Additionally, Crunchyroll announced that Jeho Son and Kwangsu Lee are "preparing another story and an extension."

Old Man Dream: Before jumping into Cinderella, found a means to see Make Mine Music. Did have to literally jump around between several different streaming sites to see all its segments. But nearly done. Not sure if I'll get around to reviewing it tonight. But...

Taka: That's interesting. Some sites list Attack on Titan Final Season as Winter 2021 or Fall 2020 due to it being aired in Dec 7, 2020.
