    Re: Noblesse Chapter 258 Review

    Maybe 10th already saw a soul weapon in action, so he just remembered the "feeling" of its aura and since Frankenstein's power base is "evil", the whole appearance of Dark Spear and its vibes are much more intimidating and menancing in the terms of feelings, than any other soul weapon.
    Or so I think

    That's a possibility. When Frankenstein first used it against Rael even Regis thought it was a soul weapon and was corrected by Seira. Its probably not Roctis but maybe those two have a relationship or serve under another traitor like the 9th and 12th elders seem to serve under Roctis even if they aren't contracted.

Considering the fact that he thinks Rai is a clan leader, knows the Seira is a clan leader and is watching Frankenstein slap the 11th around he must think very highly of himself. Its Unfortunate that he doesn't know about Tao and Takeo or he might have used that to his advantage. Poor Bonerre, he has the info that can save his life but if he reveals it before the elders are finished off they might kill him for witholding it.
    That could be And I hope it is, if only for the sake of giving Seira a more even opponent. I'll be pretty bummed if she just cuts him to ribbons with a wave of her scythe.

    And about the artwork, in general its was not that great, but there was some fucking gorgeous panels, like seira's eyes in the end
    Sorry, Boss I had no choice; mainly because of this panel...


    This panel is... pretty terrible.

    I'm of the same opinion.

    Very true, but I see it as more intentional than that in Noblesse.

    Noblesse has often had an overriding theme of the nature and the obligations of nobility(or positions of power). Raizel and characters like him believe that the power they have obligates them to protect and serve the weak. The Union people thus far seem to believe that their power gives them the right to make the weak serve them.

    Often conflicts in Noblesse have come down to this difference between philosophies and, I suspect, at the heart of it all are the Traitors. A group of Nobles useing their power to exploit humanity instead of protect them. I think this basic philosophy is something we can expect to see in all the Union people, human and otherwise.

    Wow, Noblesse kicks so much ass. Chapters like this are great because we get to see Franky let loose a bit and have some fun. It didn't feel slow to me at all, I'm enjoying this pace actually.

    I think exact opposite: They didn't believe, thak Franky's gang (or to say Franky + Rai) will stand a chance against the elder, and now, there are two elders higher, than the one before, and on top of that Bonerre, who is (unmistakably) known as good as Yuryi in the worst meaning of the word.
    And they doesn't see, what's happening above, only sounds of the battle ... no wonder, if they think "Oh God, our allies are probably turning into the minced heap of meat right now!" since they doesn't have a chance to think opposite (they doesn't know the extend of Raizel's and Frankenstein's powers).

    I hope they will be pretty fascinated by the outcome

    Franky and Rai-nim together can only lead to fascination xD Plus we have Seira and her bloodish eyes too

    Its kind of hard to wait for the chapter - thinking of the possible outcomes.

    Oh I didn't mean it like that, I was talking about M-24 drama with M-21.
    But I'm eager to know what crombell will do when he discovers who franky is ^^

    The plot decision to put a bit of soap opera in there was a bit hard to understand.

    I guess M-21 is probably pretty popular but really the places where I think the Noblesse story really thrives is when the story focuses on the Nobles or School kids. The enhanced humans (Tao, M-21, and Takeo) do a better job in a supporting role. I like them but if there is to be a series of chapters focusing on a single character I'd much rather it be Seira or Regis or even Shin Woo.

    Unless of course, it's a pairing arc (In which case I'd give it a pass)
