Now this is how you write a series . Just a chapter but so many questions answered and plot development was excellent. What a befitting and awesome humor, as usual. I wish we had flashbacks of the Lord and Franky's interaction in the past.
Previous Lord : This is really the first time he has this much airtime. You have to love him, right. You wont expect a lord to behave the way he did. To me, he was someone who was not drunk in his power. I wish we have more leaders like him .
Current Lord : I am glad she now knows the reason why her father never wanted her to be a lord. It was not that he found her incapable rather, he loved her so much that he didn't want her to bear the burden of being a lord.
Rai : Who ever thought he couldn't be more EPIC. Seriously, I love him . He chose the role of Noblesse because the path is darker and more lonesome. But with Franky around, I am sure it will not be as bad.
Franky : It makes me wonder what happened in the past that the previous lord recognized him, even though he was a human. Is it me or anyone else think, the long life span of Franky is either Rai's or Lord's doing?
Deducing from what Lord said, it seems to me that the series will focus on Humanity and Nobels and how their roles are changing. It is quite beautifully done. It may be the Nobels, with greater power but not changing, who have to survive in the world of change----->human beings.

Ok this has been bugging me for some time. It has been stated that the rebelion happened 500 years ago. Regis's unknown father was killed in this rebellion, Yet Regis himself is only 199 or something like that. What the hell man. Its one thing to miss a few years off in a loop hole, not 300!! haha my brain is on the fritz.
Ugh what a sudden turning point.
For now, let me mull over this chapter a little. All I am capable of right now is a simple
Mind = Blown.
there is something else that bothers me
they just talk about fathers and so but what about the other part?? i mean the mother
because gejutel said 'my son died' but anyone talks about his wife or the lord's wife
Hahahhaa this chapter really was awesome. I LOL'd so hard.
I hope that all of them will come to Korea and start living with Rai and Frankenstein. This way Rai can show off...I can already imagine it everyone assembled around Rai and he is 'teaching' them how to open Franky's door with a blush on his face and the Nobles with their eyes open.
Kaye would make a good sport teacher, Rozaria could be the history/literature teacher, Karias music/philosophy teacher and the Lord as Franky's secretary. That's all I came up with so far.
Sooner or later, I think that Rai will get laid. With the Lord. For some reasons, I find that scene similar to Luffy-Hancock meeting, where she basically fell in love out of respect. Well, Luffy is an asexual being and so he ignored her, but I have the feeling Rai is as much as asexual as Luffy is. Oh boy, poor women!
That aside, great chapter as always. Now we're left with no clues at all about the next. I love it!
Those type of thoughts might be good for the Nobles thread. Please post your ideas over there.
What a chapter! I went through various expressions >> from expectation, then "wow" feeling upon discovering some truth, then "lol" face for the previous lord's crazy jokes, then back to "wow" feeling after finished reading this chapter. This is pure awesomeness, everyone there on that chapter. ^__^
Right, I wouldn't mind to know her name as well. It's too much trouble to call her the current Lord or the Lord. Can't we just mention her name? XD But I think we'll get to know it later on.
This is what I'm sure of: the nobles and the Lord will accompany Rai in his next quest: find the truth about the Union. As he seems to be returning to the human world, that should be the main issue there. The previous Lord might say something like "do we still need to protect the humans?", but the Union's power is not something other human can take care of, so they'll have to play in it. :3
The previous lord is such a joker, but that brings a bright side to the 'dark, steady state of the nobles', in my opinion. He brought something fresh, and try to do something different to change the mindset of the nobles. What a desire. I respect him for that. And I wonder what would happen if him, Frank, and Shinwoo have to live together. That must be sweet. Frank would definitely be mad.
About the current lord too. I think she learned something important that even though Rai refused to take her position as a lord, she is not entirely alone like what her father and she herself might be afraid of. It will take time to adjust to the new situation and for her to think deeply about what her father wanted from her, but it's clear that the other clan leaders are not merely her 'minions' or something like that; they are her friends as well. It's shown through their choices to serve the lord no matter what. It's a very heart-warming scene.
And LOL at your spoiler. Nice imagination there, although I would definitely go if it really happened.
wow, that's one hell of a post you made there phio-chin XD I'm too lazy now to go into details but I completely agree with your points! Still I would like to see a few Nobles at school or at least at Franky's house. Rael would definitely need some education but I'm sure the other Nobles could learn quite a bit too + I can imagine a lot of funny scenes with them being in the human world
The laid-back, funny days are a very strong point in Noblesse and I'm really looking forward to them!
The chapter was as great as ever, the previous Lord is very likeable/funny and I hope that wasn't the last we saw of him. Only thing I wonder about is why he didn't told his daughter any of those reasons before he went into eternal sleep. The doubts and questions must have been really hard on her and it was heart-warming to see how much she relaxed after she heard his words
- They might not have been able to accept the previous Lord's view on humans. They have lived, possibly for millennia, with the idea that they are basically the shepherds of humanity; accepting that role was no longer needed had to be difficult.
- They would have all had to give up their lives, on what must have seemed like the previous Lord's whim. Which is no small thing.
- They also might not have wanted to throw everything on the shoulders of the younger generation. Perhaps they just didn't think the young ones were up to the task.
But i also think there might also be an element of "those who refuse to change". Nobles who view humanity as sheep or vermin. Seeing them as not something to learn from, but something to be controlled or exterminated.
I suppose it's possible that vanilla mortals could be the answer. I mean, if nobles and mortals got together the noble parent would outlive the mortal by like a billion years, Which would explain why there are so many single parents around.
Haha, yeah, Rael definitely need some education, though I think it won't be the normal kind of education, considering how.. wild.. he is. XD Yeah, the comedy is one of Noblesse strong points. They can even put comedy in the middle of serious moments like what happened in this chapter. ^^ And about why the previous lord didn't tell this to his daughter... I think he wanted to show her first the 'unchanging' nobles. I don't think she would be able to grow further as a lord if she didn't have to go through such situation. Maybe. :3
For a long time, I had this theory that Nobles found human partners. I can't imagine how they could prevent inbreeding with such a small population. Also, humans die fast, so they won't have a strong influence upon the child. But Rael not only proposed to Seira, he was described as a pure-bred Noble, and that suggests that the 'elite' does not mix with humans.
Lord also realized that Nobels were too bound to their responsibilities and this fact also barred them from changing. With humans like Franky, gaining the strength equivalent to a clan leader or perhaps more, Nobles did not need to continue to hold their old traditions.
Where the idea of being less bound by the old ways seem to appeal to most of the new nobles, for him that's probably a nightmare. He's the type that wants to use power to force others to do what he wants. I'd imagine the last thing in the universe he wants to do is treat those around him like peers. Just look at the way he wanted to strong arm Siera into a marriage for the sake of elevating his own influence.
My guess is that humanity is going to be that point of contention. If any of the former traitors are still around they will probably want to control humanity and rule over them(as seemed to be the old way) If that's the case the current nobles and the current lord can't let that stand. So conflict would be inevitable between the two factions.
