Kim Jae-joong will perform the anime's theme song "BREAKING DAWN." K-pop group OH MY GIRL will perform the ending theme song "Etoile."

Crunchyroll describes the anime's story:

Raizel awakens from his 820-year slumber.

He holds the special title of Noblesse, a pure-blooded Noble and protector of all other Nobles. In an attempt to protect Raizel, his servant Frankenstein enrolls him at Ye Ran High School, where Raizel learns the simple and quotidian routines of the human world through his classmates.

However, the Union, a secret society plotting to take over the world, dispatches modified humans and gradually encroaches on Raizel's life, causing him to wield his mighty power to protect those around him…

After 820 years of intrigue, the secrets behind his slumber are finally revealed, and Raizel's absolute protection as the Noblesse begins!

WEBTOONS started publishing the manhwa in English in July 2014, and published the epilogue in January 2019. WEBTOONS also published a spinoff title Noblesse: Rai's Adventure in 2016.

Production I.G previously produced a 30-minute anime based on the manhwa in 2016 titled Noblesse: Awakening. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime.
