Noblesse: Awakening Review:
At 30 minutes, Noblesse Awakening doesn’t really have time for anything complex. Or really do much of anything. Then again, even when Noblesse is given a whole series to play with it doesn’t really accomplish much.
Noblesse Awakening gives you a text-based introduction about the setup and then we are pretty much straight into coffin opening and then vampire goes to school.
At times I wondered if this OVA was paid for by Japan’s education system given how many plugs going to school got in the 30 minute run time. That said, I give the human characters credit for knowing when to run away unlike in most shows where they would see the weird creepy thing and run toward it.
I’ll also point out it is very unfair that they weren’t rewarded for their actual and credible survival skills. I sometimes feel smart characters are unfairly punished in these types of stories where as it is remarkable how often morons survive.
Overall Noblesse: Awakening was enjoyable enough but it doesn’t have enough time to really make you care about anything that is happening and then it is over but feels like it really is just starting so unless we get something else you just kind of wonder what the point was.
Fans of vampire anything will enjoy this, if you like an okay action story you will enjoy this, and if you are just looking for a way to kill 30 minutes, there are worse ways to do it than Noblesse: Awakening. But that’s about as far as I can recommend it.
Nobless: Awakening is available on Crunchyroll.
Thank-you for reading 100 Word Anime.
