5 Anime Like Noblesse
5. Vampire Knight
1. One Punch-Man
5. Vampire Knight
Synopsis – Cross Academy is an elite boarding school with two separate, isolated classes: the Day Class and the Night Class. On the surface, Yuuki Cross and Zero Kiryuu are prefects of the academy and attempt to keep order between the students as classes rotate in the evenings. As the Night Class is full of utterly gorgeous elites, this can sometimes prove to be a bit difficult. It is completely necessary, however, as those “elites” are actually vampires. Yuuki and Zero act as guardians, protecting the secrets of the Night Class and the safety of their ignorant morning counterparts.
As the adopted daughter of the academy’s chairman, Yuuki takes her job with a serious and energetic attitude. It also allows her to interact with her secret crush and savior, the president of the Night students’ dorm, Kaname Kuran. Zero, on the other hand, has a deep-rooted hatred against vampires, and at times, does not hesitate to kill.
Can vampires and humans co-exist, even in the strict setup of the Cross Academy? Only time will tell.
Similarity – This is probably the best recommendation I can make for Noblesse at the moment, but by no means is it the best recommendation I can make for Vampire Knight. To be blunt, Vampire Knight is a shoujo-Noblesse (and likewise, Noblesse is a shounen-Vampire Knight). Noblesse is like Vampire Knight took to the extreme (without romance). Regardless, at the core of their stories, they’re essentially the same. In both Noblesse and Vampire Knight, there are two central “factions” that are co-operating with each other but seeking to overthrow each other at the same time. In Vampire Knight, this is the Hunter’s Association and the Senior Council of Vampires; in Noblesse, this is the Union and the Nobles. Both main characters (Kaname in Vampire Knight and Rai in Noblesse) are put in difficult positions because of events that happen before the beginning of the series and forced to fight against both sides. Luckily, they’re both insanely strong vampires, so they always manage to fend off their foes and protect their friends
Synopsis – Jin is a strange kid with an angel mark on his hand. He lives a poor but peaceful life with his grandfather, along with the other destitute and abandoned vagabonds near the river. One day, his peaceful life changes when a strange monster named “player” appears, chopping off heads and killing everyone who appears in front of it.
Similarity – Both have amazing art, though Noblesse is a Korean Webtoon, so it is in a long, scrolling format and in color, while Zetman is a Japanese manga, so it’s black and white and in page format.
What these two have in common is fantastic sci-fi action, a shadowy organization that creates grotesque experimental monsters to make more and more powerful beings, and mature storytelling. Noblesse has it’s light-hearted moments between the seriousness and verges on fantasy, while Zetman is more or less dark the whole way through and has strongly-rated content. Both are incredible reads.
Synopsis – For as long as he can remember, high school student Ichigo Kurosaki has been able to see the spirits of the dead, but that has not stopped him from leading an ordinary life. One day, Ichigo returns home to find an intruder in his room who introduces herself as Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper tasked with helping souls pass over. Suddenly, the two are jolted from their conversation when a Hollow—an evil spirit is known for consuming souls—attacks. As Ichigo makes a brash attempt to stop the Hollow, Rukia steps in and shields him from a counterattack. Injured and unable to keep fighting, Rukia suggests a risky plan—transfer half of her Soul Reaper powers to Ichigo. He accepts and, to Rukia’s surprise, ends up absorbing her powers entirely, allowing him to easily dispatch the Hollow.
Now a Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo must take up Rukia’s duties of exterminating Hollows and protecting spirits, both living and dead. Along with his friends Orihime Inoue and Yasutora Sado—who later discover spiritual abilities of their own—Ichigo soon learns that the consequences of becoming a Soul Reaper and dealing with the world of spirits are far greater than he ever imagined.
Similarity – Both have extremely similar art styles and are urban fantasy series with humorous moments and epic fight scenes, though Noblesse is a Korean Webtoon, so it is in a long, scrolling format and in color, while Bleach is a Japanese manga, so it’s black and white and in page format.
If in Bleach you replace spirits, shinigami and hollows with vampires, werewolves and experimentally enhanced humans, you essentially get something like Noblesse and visa versa. While both are different in many ways, including the elements of science-fiction in Noblesse, and the focus on a (more-or-less) human protagonist in Bleach, fans of both series will recognize things they love in the other.
Synopsis – Tucked away in the English countryside lies the ominous manor of the Phantomhives, a family which has established itself as the cold and ruthless “Queen’s Watchdog” as well as the head of London’s criminal underground. After a tragedy leaves the Earl and his wife dead, many are shocked when their son, a young boy named Ciel, claims his place as the new Earl of the Phantomhive house. At first, many perceive him only as a child surrounded by a few eccentric servants. But they soon begin to realize that it is foolish to meddle with Ciel and his demonic butler Sebastian.
Taking place at the end of the 19th century, Kuroshitsuji follows these two as they face countless mysteries and dangers that plague England and threaten the Queen, uncovering the truth about what really happened to Ciel’s parents in the process.
Similarity – -Master + Servant protagonist duo where one is human and one is a supernatural being

*Noblesse: (Master)(Vampire) Cadis Etrama di Raize, aka Rai (Servant) Frankenstein
-Duo face the Supernatural as they unravel a mystery relating to the MC
*Kuroshitsuji: Face Shinigami to find out who murdered Ciel’s parents

-MC has a go-to party of people to aid him
-Both servants are:

1. One Punch-Man
Synopsis – After rigorously training for three years, the ordinary Saitama has gained immense strength which allows him to take out anyone and anything with just one punch. He decides to put his new skill to good use by becoming a hero. However, he quickly becomes bored with easily defeating monsters, and wants someone to give him the challenge to bring back the spark of being a hero.
Upon bearing witness to Saitama’s amazing power, Genos, a cyborg, is determined to become Saitama’s apprentice. During this time, Saitama realizes he is neither getting the recognition that he deserves nor known by the people due to him not being a part of the Hero Association. Wanting to boost his reputation, Saitama decides to have Genos register with him, in exchange for taking him in as a pupil. Together, the two begin working their way up toward becoming true heroes, hoping to find strong enemies and earn respect in the process.
Similarity – The main characters are overpowered, and both have a faithful disciple or servant. Both are also often the cause of the comic scenes. They can be really hilarious.
If you find yourself laughing at the unexpected, pleasantly interrupting comedy in One Punch Man, I bet you’ll also love the same kind of comedy in Noblesse.
As for the action, both MCs fight various stereotypical villains. However, fights are taken more seriously in Noblesse. There’s also more drama in Noblesse.
Noblesse has a more linear and solid plot, and every happening/development follows a precedent happening. In One Punch Man, the happenings, which are mostly new villains, are often random and cannot be predicted.
In One Punch Man, we see parodies of the well-known villains of anime. In Noblesse, we see reinventions of the common monsters in Western fiction, such as vampires, werewolves, Frankenstein. One Punch Man also presents us with a wide set of supporting characters or heroes with interesting abilities and cockiness XD/personalities of their own. Noblesse slowly adds new supporting characters with different backgrounds and bishieness XD/personalities of their own.
