Ubel Blatt, Put This on Your Radar

Key points for Put This on Your Radar – Ubel Blatt:

  • Ubel Blatt, a dark fantasy manga by Shiono Etorouji, is set to receive an anime adaptation. The story follows Koinzell, a former member of the 4 Lances of Betrayal, who returns after 20 years with mysterious motives.
  • Described as “Berserk but with Link as the protagonist,” Ubel Blatt combines dark themes with an adventurous protagonist. The manga’s unique blend has garnered attention, and fans are curious to see how the anime adaptation will capture its essence.
  • The content’s similarity to Berserk raises concerns about potential censorship in the anime adaptation. I acknowledge the necessity of some censorship but hope it won’t overshadow the story’s impact, expressing excitement for the upcoming adaptation.

Oh, I know how down-bad the community is for Ubel from Frieren. But this series has nothing to do with Frieren. It is a pretty old series. Now, I don’t know German but I have been told that Ubel means evil so checks out in both cases, I guess. Anyway though, Ubel Blatt is a dark fantasy manga. An anime adaptation of it was announced recently. I checked out the manga out of curiosity and I quite like it. I saw someone describe it as “Berserk but with Link as the protagonist” and I can’t disagree with that assessment lol.

So welcome back to another edition of Put This on Your Radar – the series where I highlight upcoming anime that caught my eye. This once, we are talking about Ubel Blatt. There isn’t a lot of news for the anime adaptation yet. But I will still cover everything we know about it. And give an introduction to the series for those who don’t know about it. So let’s get started right away.

What do we know about Ubel Blatt?

Let’s start with the introduction. Of course, the anime will be based on the dark fantasy manga of the same name by Shiono Etorouji. It was serialized in the Big Gangan magazine from December 2004 to March 2019. It also had a 2-year hiatus period between 2009 and 2011. Aside from that, it also has a one-shot prequel and a sequel series that started serialization this year.

As for the plot, the manga follows Koinzell. He was one of the 4 Lances of Betrayal who were defeated by the 7 heroes to bring in peaceful times. But 20 years after his defeat, he returned and started a bandit militia. His objectives are unknown as even those who he travels with don’t know much about him.

As for the anime, we don’t know much. The recent issue of the Big Gangan magazine announced that this manga will be getting an anime soon. And Pony Canyon also opened an official website for it. So it looks like the anime will be produced by Pony Canyon. They revealed a teaser visual and that is all we have for now.

My Thoughts

As I mentioned, I we through the manga a little. I read a few chapters and.. oh boy, the Berserk comparison is certainly apt. I am pretty sure that a lot of things in the anime adaptation will be censored. So my only hope is that the story and impact aren’t lost because of all the censoring. I understand that some amount of censorship will be necessary, I just hope that they don’t go overboard with it. That one minor qualm aside, I am quite excited about this adaptation. It has the potential to be really good and I look forward to it.

That is all for now!

Ubel Blatt should be a fun anime whenever it comes out. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
