Genre: Action, Adventure, Shounen, Supernatural
Author:Son Jae-ho
Artist:Lee Gwang-Su
Description: Under the backdrop of a city with a mysterious killer on the loose, we are introduced to an exceptional young Cafe owner; possessing the rapidly to healing along with heightened physical abilities. When he goes out for a evening grocery run he encounters a strange looking little girl who asks to borrow his phone. He gladly obliges but, as he is appreciating the evening breeze, the girl's hat is blown off and she chases it out into traffic. He dives in front of the child and is hit by a truck. Some distance away we see a jewel crack and a shadowy figure celebrate finding "something".

What does it all mean? I guess we'll have to read to find out.

My thoughts: It definitely looks interesting. Seems like kind of an "X-Men" meets "Inuyasha" so far. Not sure if that impression is at all accurate but that's what I got from it. It's written and drawn by the same people who brought us Noblesse so it's bound to be a worthwhile read.

The fact that it's optimized for smartphones is...not ideal. For one thing that's always going to hurt image quality for PC viewers, like me; but I can understand why they'd want to try that format.

I still don't really get why they make this "specifically" for mobile phones. Most of online readers are still PC/laptop-user anyway. Does it mean so that the comic can still be read when you're on mobile phone or what? >.<

Either way, first chapter is an introduction as usual. A kind-hearted person with special ability. Looking forward to the complications. I also hope the art will stay as good as it is now. :mono

You can't upscale it. Which kinda shafts those of use who use larger screens. Then again I'm old fashioned with my desktop computer and comfy computer chair.

I also hope the art will stay as good as it is now. :mono The plot seems solid but I suppose it's pretty early to judge. Whatever direction the story takes, I'm hoping for plenty of that quirky humor that Noblesse does so well.

Heh, waiting for a late Noblesse raw, I found some spare time to read Ability =)

I'm absolutely sure we'll get lots of good humor knowing the authors, the blondie seems to know how to reply in certain situations (I had a good laugh at "How are you feeling?" "I feel... bad" "..."). I like it so far, I'll continue to follow it.

I'm just a little worried for Noblesse, running two weekly series isn't a very good idea IMO. It might sound terrible but I'd rather hear that they had a minor accident or their graphic tablet broke or something than that they couldn't finish this week's Noblesse because of having two weeklies.

It's up to chapter 4 so far and I still haven't felt any "spark" with the series. I think it's pretty similar to how I started Noblesse so probably it's like that too this time? :p

The action was quite fun, although it decreased a bit since of the involved party is quickly healed from his wounds. That destroyed the balance a bit. I'm a bit curious about the bad guys and what exactly this "ability" is, so I'll stick around for more.

Though in Noblesse's case the beginning was funnier. It's not that the series is bad or anything it's just that none of the characters really distinguished themselves to me so far. The main guy seems likable, which is a fine foundation, but I feel like that's just not "enough". I'm hoping for some supporting cast to bring a little bit more to the table.

Please tell me the new person with the long hair in chapter 8, is actually a girl but flat chested, please...:crying

Just look at "Ability" manhwa, chapter 8:

http://readonline.egscans.com/mangas/Ability/Chapter%20008/Ability_ch008_p17.jpg


That person's face reminds me of one of the hottest/sexy girls with perfect temparament according to my taste. Her name is Moka from "Rosario + Vampire", after she transforms into a "true vampire" !!!
But, sadly, despite the fact that the art is amaizing in "Rosario + Vampire" (I have only watched anime but dropped manga !!!), I must say that the true story is pushed behind and fan service given more priority, what I hate there. Oh and also it's similar to "Fairy tale", because good guys always(no matter how many fights they have) win against no matter who.

Now back on the subject, look at "Moka's true form" that I was referring too, and I so adore:

And when "this", not yet sealed Moka, was still young:

To sum it all, I'm in love with "the true vampire Moka's design"...:love

PS: I'm also in love with "Erza Scarlet" from "Fary Tale", just look why:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8l88u27HOX0

[hr]

But although, I hate it when there are man with design that would be otherwise fit for girls, I am crossing fingers / I hope that there would be at least one person of the same/similar caliber but with boobs and a girl in this manhwa...:derp

I say: "hope is gona die last"...:cheez

So untill that happenes, I am not going to drop this series no matter what...:XD

The storyline also looks really interesting to me, so this is additional plus for me. But a strawberry on top of the cake, and what I also love in "Ability", is how well presented supernatural effects are !!!



PS: Because those are creators from Noblesse, I know they might surprise me some day, when I will expect it "the least"...:)

Eyes changing! :zomg

We've seen the crystal for a while now. Now it finally arises to the surface. C'mon, give me some explanatiooon~
Is the last page intended to be a joke? I thought it was going to be an attack, but does it cause healing to the monster because the boy's ability is also a healing ability? Or what? Since it feels very strange. As if I'm looking into the other side of Raizel using his power to healing instead of attacking. :|

I'm with you in spirit Monster Guy. I'm really hoping for this character to be a girl but... I don't at all trust that this won't be "king of the bishis"


Ability is certainly not a fast developing series. When I made this thread I remember feeling tempted to write "????" under description. Eight chapters later, I don't feel like I know anything more now than I did back then.-_-;

Looks like we all share one feeling about the series here. :nod

I'm not sure what I've been reading so far. I don't really mind the art, the humor is sometimes funny, but the whole plot is not yet very inviting. I think Noblesse was a bit better when it started (Noblesse was my first manhwa and first webtoon so I was probably a bit biased, but still...). But I don't think I'd give up now, I'll stick around for more, hoping that it will improve.

I believe the new character is a girl, honestly. :s

My expectations for this series are steadily dropping. I don't want to be too negative here, as there is still time for the story to take a turn for the better, but my hope seems more distant. Right now the series only really has one and a half characters; the protagonist and the little girl (who is almost certainly not a little girl). That's just not enough.

In Noblesse we had Frankenstien, Raizel, and Shin Woo along with all his friends by this point. When you have characters that... fun you can get away with a weak plot(which Noblesse kinda did for a while), Ability has a decent protagonist but nothing else to keep it going; something which the "super serious transsexual" didn't help.:s

I didn't know it was bi-weekly. Was it not? :o I wonder if they decided to turn Ability into a bi-weekly series because they want to focus on Noblesse.

We're up to chapter 11 now and why am I still not very pumped at the end of each chapter? >,< It's getting quite interesting as Yu Hwa's power is starting to awaken. It seems like there's another being or consciousness inside of him, giving him power to fight and to heal as well. The fight with the monster was rather funny with all the comments and style. Indeed from Noblesse authors, lol. I'm not very pumped yet but we'll see. It's still a small universe anyway so we're waiting to see more coming from it. <3

You mean Yu Hwa? Well, they seem to have the same humor, LOL~ Aside from that, yeah, I can see some traits similar to Frank. Mainly about how he cares about people and seem to be the good guy. I'm wondering about his background at this point, but there's no way we'll get it so fast. XD

Sorry. I meant to say it gets better every other week (i.e. chapter) not that the Manhwa is released every other week. I have updated my post for clarification.

Ahh, it looks like at chapter 17 we're finally getting somewhere!

Took long enough but the cast seems to be expanding, which is good, and things are seeming a little less centric on the "It". Which is good thing for me because no matter what Ability does I don't think I'm ever going to be able to take the mega-bishi seriously. I just....can't.

Chap 21 was scanned few days back and its getting really awesomeI suspect a big reason for that is how slow the beginning was. In the first 10 chapter not a lot happens and for me the mega-bishi was nearly the coffin nail. It really took until about chapter 17 before I saw any signs of life. Now we got characters, we got humor, the plot is moving.


I follow this Manhwa, but the artwork is fairly poor compared to all the other big named Manhwa's.It's made especially for smartphones. That's why the art seems so funky at normal pc resolutions. It probably looks pretty good on an iphone.

I just noticed something that i didn't notice before : If you guys take a look at the anothers that just showed up and M24 at the very beggining of Noblesse, there's a huge ressemblance :

http://images.wikia.com/noblesse/images/5/5f/M-21_and_24_charging.JPG
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110110010428/noblesse/images/thumb/8/8a/C%27s.png/300px-C%27s.png

First, we had Mase who completely looked like M21 but when i saw that, i simply got shocked. The author should have tried to make Ability completely different than Noblesse artwise or at least a bit different because he seems to recycle some characters in different colors and outfits.

As for the plot going slow, i completely agree and this is one of the biggest weakness of this webtoon. I think that if i didn't know about Noblesse, i might have been even more harsh on Ability. But i still keep in mind that Son Jae-ho always keeps getting better.

Don't get me wrong, the concept of the story is original but there's something missing, something that should make me impatient to read the newest chapter every week.

Authors have created some good plot elements in nearly 25 chapters unlike Noblesse where the real plot begain to start after 60-70 chapters. While I am not expecting anything too big, the amount of story elements shown far are impressive and promising.

We have the crystal mystery, then Sa-Ryun and the people chasing him, Hon, Salamanders and their leader, and now the new boy who has stolen something from Hon.

Any guess on what that object is? We would probably get the answer tomorrow. Maybe it's another crystal?

Also what do you guys think is the real ability of Yu-Hwa? I mean the title of series is Ability so certainly there is some meaning behind it, right?

hmm i wonder what his deep power is really. So far he almost got killed in chap 24 but it didnt do much(by power i mean that special gauntlet thing the healing is like a passive thing for him). I like him this way without associating with HON or any other organization.
Also that cop seems to be a decent chara too

The point of his power is that there'll always be the "almost" - he won't get killed, just trashed all around the place, but then still emerges from the rubble walking like a zombie :D

Unfortunately for Yu-Hwa, relying on Sa-Ryun's power is the only way he can keep up at this point. I'm wondering what Hon's counterparts for Atran's Hunters would be, if such individuals exist.

The last three chapters of Ability has been really good. We saw a lot of potential development both in characters and plot. It was touching to see the love (read friendship) between Yu-Hwa and Un when they decided to save each other :super The real good part was how Yu-Hwa used his potential while making sure he doesn't heal his enemies... Poor them... he injured them to a point where Sa-Ryun can easily kill them :hee

I think the guy who is like a butler to the young girl will be really powerful. But judging by atrans reaction to Hons name it seems Hon is not as powerful as they are though

September 21, 2013, 08:18 AM
Atran told Reapers that they need to be concerned about Mase... so he is bound to be super strong. If Un can give a decent fight to two Reapers then I believe Ye-Rin can easily hold all of them or maybe three of them at least... I believe they look down on Hon as Hon doesn't show off its power and only protects Anothers... A peaceful organization is always considered to be weak no matter how powerful it is even in the real world.

September 25, 2013, 12:47 PM
It seems as though we might get to some high-level action in the next few chapters or so. We might get to see just how Ye-Rin would compare to someone of Sa-Ryun's quality.

Things got really interesting. Now Yu-Hwa will be KIND A betrayed by Hon by using him as a bait and i really wonder what effect will it have on him, hopefully both him and sa ryun will escape and the chaps will take us to Yu Hwa learning combat more from Sa ryun in their sort of exile.

Ability 47 (http://mngacow.com/Ability/47/?all) An excellent chapter! :^_^

Ch. 47 answered some important things about Sa-Ryun. He suffered some serious injury while killing Atran's heir. He also stole something... probably a crystal. I guess it makes sense on why Sa-Ryun is so much obessed with Yu-Hwa's healing abilities.

So now he is on the same level as Sa-Ryun and Mais?

i think he already had a power somewhat close to their levels ,the problem was that he didnt know how to use it . it will be the same ,he has more raw power now but he still doesnt know how to handle it

he had greater raw powers than sa ryun and Mais thats for sure hinted all through the manhwa. Now who knows what will happen to him LOL this was an epic turn over. Sa ryun would be mad and Yu hwa may leave Hon for real. As for me i would really like if he was a one man army rather than some organizations lackie

hmm my thought exactly prolly that was some seriously powerful another and thereby made Yu hwa a special kind of guy. The impressive thing is that the power that is in yu hwa keeps getting stronger faced threat, so its more than just power rather it seems more complex than that

I think the Orb Yu-Hwa has is of different type. That orb has its own will as we have already seen..Maybe that orb gives him power dependng on the danger level Yu-Hwa faces.

We already saw a skeleton near the place where Yu-Hwa got his orb so there is a high possibility that the orb is the power of that dead Another... but the main part is that the orb is similar to the "Stone of Healing" we saw in last season. So there is a possibility that the orb is something similar to a special artifact rather than some dead another's power. Perhaps it's a mix of those two?

Nothing much revealed about the box to be speculative yet, but regarding the chap i am a bit disappointed. I was hoping for some major plot twist to take place like say Yu hwa leaving Hon or sth rather this looks as if even though something surprising happened they are happy about it without a tad of worry, weird.
More surprisingly after absorbing such an existence all yu hwa feels is a head ache, no power up showdowns or any thing. It was a let down seriously

Don't worry, it will show. It's quite understandable that there are no apparent signs of a powerup yet, since the battle was over already.

Yuhwa leaving Hon would be a bad plot twist. He just joined a few chapters ago, what would it all be for if he just left now. I'm sure he'll get into a conflict with Hon so major that there'll be no other choice in the future (since he never listens to what they tell him :D), but this is just too early.

Going by Sa-Ryun's reaction previously on the power orb I expect it to have more than 10% of Lector's power. Well, Yu-Hwa is probably lot stronger than Maise, Sa-Ryun & others even without Lector's power... He just doesn't knows how to use it.

November 13, 2013, 05:44 PM
i think for his case there will be a difference ie usually people get a portion of the orb power but in his case it will be a giant part of it or full. Ne way i am loving Rin and Yu hwa moments, the last interaction between them ws awesome with him mistaking her going out for a date for someone else when it was him she came to date. I hope Yu Hwa gets more trained by sa ryun though if you ask me. Some how it feels that its more effective (a gut feeling)

November 20, 2013, 05:03 PM
Yu hwa's current power level might already be too big that the orb does not provide any significant increase in power. The orb might contain a pail in terms of power compared to just cups from a normal another but Yu hwa might already have a bathtub of power or even the size of a small pool so adding a pail of water won't make any difference.

I rather liked the outcome. Sure Yu-Hwa could have defeated him easily has he lost his consciousness, but I believe that would be too repetitive. Istead Yu-Hwa has started learning to use his powers... And the current development gives rise to many potentially good developments. We now have Tar as his rival and soon the outcome of this fight would spread... And Jacra has always shown interest in Yu-Hwa.

Excellent chapter. I like that Yuhwa didn't use the unconsciousness trick, and also that he didn't curbstomp Tar suddenly after powering up - since Tar wasn't being serious before at all, it made for a nice fight after he got serious. Tar seems to be just reasonably stronger than Yuhwa, and he's still incredibly hyped, which shows that Yuhwa not actually beating him is not a proof of weakness, but of prowess in comparison to before. Plus Jacra's teacher mode and promise of further rivalry between Yuhwa and Tar, it gives me sort of a HxH vibe :super

Yu-Hwa looks like he was able to tap into his hidden strength once again after getting his ass tossed around for several minutes. However, his facial expression looks the same as any other time he's awakened his immeasurable power. Anger filled and out of control. I doubt if he'll be able to defeat his opponent during this blind fit of rage. Anyway, the real fight starts next chapter, and I don't believe his opponent is going to pull anymore more punches. He looks heated and bewildered by Yu-Hwa's sudden increase of power. Nice chapter. Plenty of action and solid dialogue.

However, Yu-Hwa's involvement with Hon will only complicate matters. Also, Yu-Hwa just proved himself to be a invaluable asset to Hon by protecting the princess once again, so Mais should trust him more from this point onward. Anyway, the first of many battles between Hon and Atrant is over, and things will only get increasingly difficult for Yu-Hwa here on out.

I liked how she kept showing concern for Yu-Hwa while she was beating his behind in the training facility. Anyway, I hope those two grow closer as the story progresses. They seem like a good fit.

Heck, I'd say we have no idea of what Yu-Hwa is capable of doing. He continues to get stronger, but what exactly is his power? Anyway, I have a feeling Hon might start preforming tests on Yu-Hwa to determine if he's really a human or not. He was able to adsorb that orb several chapters ago.

Possibly. Atran severely underestimated Hon's forces because of intel, so it's comprehensible they wouldn't send out their strongest fighters to capture the princess. However, they won't make the same mistake again after being soundly beaten and embarrassed.
