Hey there. I was looking for new manhwa for a while and found "Ability". It was pretty... decent. First thing I noticed was that it's similar to Noblesse. Very. Evil aura drawn the same. Similar faces and their expressions. Overally, style was the same. I checked the authors. The same. Art is done by the same person, just as story.
And now, my question is: Is Noblesse going to end soon? Why bother starting new (very good so far) manhwa, if they have second successful work?
That, I don't know. I don't have Korean skill and I don't know where I can find such information from... If we take a look at the current arc of Noblesse, it does have the aura of being "final". In this arc we see nobles and humans from Union interacting and fighting more with each other. However I don't see it ending so soon yet, feels like there can be more going from this.
My random guess will be that the authors are preparing for a new hits after Noblesse ends. This way they can take time with the introduction chapters of Ability, keeping readers ready for more when they have time to write for it.
Considering how many Elders are left in the Union, and that the Traitors haven't even really emerged yet. I have to think that Noblesse has, at the least, 150 chapters left and that's assuming the story is back-loaded to tie everything off with a short war between Lukedonia and the Union and the the story will end with Raizel's death. Which I think to be unlikely.
I could be wrong but I suspect Raizel will die (most likely when the first of the traitors shows up), pass on the his power or soul weapon. Then the series will refocus on a new Noblesse for the remainder of the story. If that's the way it goes we'd be looking at 200 more chapters, minimum.
As for Ability.
I don't know why authors split their attention between multiple projects but it's not uncommon. My favorite novelist has done it... twice now(which drives me insane.) Maybe the variety helps their creative process or something.
i dont think it will end soon . i mean there r 10 elder remaining and we haven't seen 1 real werewolf so i think it will have 200+ chapter remaining
Well, the pay for web artists is pretty low compared to manga/manhwa artists. Ability was started to support authors.
No one would end a manga when its popularity is at its peak. Also, I think the main plot of Noblesse have just started.
The end is too far away......
Oh cool, I didn't know they were working on another series, too! I guess there's another series I need to read now.
But yeah, like strixflash said, I think one motivation could be getting another project for some income. Or maybe they just wanted to do something different. Regardless, I'd be surprised if Noblesse ends soon. It doesn't feel like it should end yet, but maybe it's wishful thinking.
