Synopsis (from mangaupdates)
When the Wischtech threatened to invade the fiefs of Szaalanden, the Emperor dispatched fourteen youths. Of these, the Seven Heroes halted the invasion to herald a time of prosperity while the four Lances of Betrayal were supposedly defeated.

Two decades later, the Lances of Betrayal have reappeared and formed a bandit militia near the frontier fief Gormbark. A man with a black sword and a scar over his left eye slays an entire troop of that militia. He is identified as the boy, Kóinzell, and becomes as much an object of fear as of hope even as his own past, motivations, and purpose are a mystery to those he meets on his journey.

I rarely find myself this interested in a manga, but Übel Blatt has whatever it is that makes me love manga. The story while not wholly original has some nice touches to it to make it a truly interesting and ultimately unpredictable affair.

The characters I find are quite straight forward, you love the good guys (the females especially ;D) you really really really really hate the baddies, and the stupid masses you damn to hell.

So overall like I said, I find this story really enjoyable, partially because of the story and characters and partially because sometimes the scanlation process can be slow (but if it means having Übel Blatt in good quality who am I to say anything negative) and I really do hope many more people read this.

Oh and a small warning for anyone who is wary of this kind of thing but there is a moderate level of nudity in this manga (you don't expect them to do it with their clothes on now do you?) so if you're at work or school or amongst others reading Übel Blatt, you've been warned.
