Based on the manga by Atsushi Ookubo, the fantasy-adventure Soul Eater (2008) takes place at the Death Weapon Meister Academy, a school run by the Grim Reaper to create pairs of fighters, one of whom transforms into a weapon wielded by a partner called a "Meister." Soul, who always wants to look cool, turns into a scythe that the diligent Maka uses; infinitely patient Tsubaki becomes a variety of weapons for motor-mouth assassin Black Star. They're joined by the Grim Reaper's powerful but addled son Death the Kid, who has a neurotic fixation on the principle of symmetry, and his twin guns, the Thompson Sisters. Despite their many foibles, all three partnerships command impressive powers. Assigned to capture the souls of evil beings who could foster the creation of a terrible demon known as the Kishin, they battle witches, golems, and other evil creatures. Having created an appealing and engagingly nutty cast, the filmmakers can't always figure out what to do with them. At times, the tone feels too silly, then it suddenly becomes needlessly violent. The witch Medusa's abuse of her neurotic son Crona is disturbing, but her menace is undercut by Eruka, the idiotic frog-witch who serves her. The mixture of freewheeling slapstick, imaginative designs, and supernatural adventures in Soul Eater may remind viewers of Fairy Tail and Gurren Lagann, but the artists push the visuals even further. The designs of Soul and Black Star are essentially jagged collections of angles; the lumpy-looking sun and moon leer woozily from the sky, as if they just lurched back from a prolonged binge. Professor Franken Stein, who constantly adjusts the large screw in his skull, looks like he was haphazardly sewn together from spare parts, as do all his accessories, including his bento box. Soul Eater builds to a suitably flamboyant if very talky climax, as the main characters face off against the reborn Kishin. Maka discovers that, like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, she has always had powers she was unaware of. It's a very entertaining series, but the viewer is left with the nagging suspicion that stronger writing could have made it even better. (Rated TV 14: violence, violence against women and children, grotesque imagery, brief nudity, risqué humor, potentially offensive religious imagery, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

Maka is a Meister and Soul is her Weapon. As students at the Grim Reaper's Death Weapon Meister Academy, their study habits couldn't be more different. But in battle against the supernatural forces of evil, they're a freakin' lethal team.That's when Soul transforms - literally - into a razor-sharp scythe, and every defeated wicked soul he sucks down makes him more deadly. That's when Maka unleashes the merciless slayer within, wielding her partner and dropping monsters. Seriously. Monsters. Like the witches, werewolves, and zombies that lurk in the shadows and feed on the souls of the innocent. Every freakish ghoul Maka and Soul take out strengthens their bond, and fighting alongside their fellow Meister/Weapon classmates, Maka and Soul are the world's last line of defense against evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Price December 26, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The last time I have watched Soul Eater was in 2010 on Hulu and FUNimation's Youtube channel, and I found it to be extremely entertaining. But this review isn't about the show itself. It's about the prices. FUNimation so far has released three versions of this series. The first releases were in four parts (Part 1-3 contains 13 episodes and Part 4 contains the remaining 12 episodes),the second release were in two parts, Meister & Weapon (The Meister Collection contained the first 26 episodes and The Weapon Collection contained the remaining 25 episodes), and this release is the Complete series with all 51 episodes. I find it strange that the DVD version of this is $44.99 yet the Blu-Ray version (which is superior to DVD) only cost $20.99! That's an insane price for a complete series box set with all the episodes in BLU-RAY! This is cheaper than any Soul Eater release you will find on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold on to your soul! March 16, 2011
Format:DVD
The DWMA (Death Weapon Meister Academy) is a school that trains weapons and meisters to fight together to defeat kishin. A weapon must consume 99 kishin souls and one witch's soul in order to become a Death Scythe, one of Lord Death's own weapons. The series follows three student pairs - Maka and her scythe Soul, Black Star and his ninja weapon Tsubaki, and Death the Kid, with twin pistols Liz and Patty. Each pair has their own little quirks and strengths. Soul places great emphasis on "coolness", Black Star is extremely narcissistic, and Kid is OCD and obsessed with "symmetry". When these students aren't out battling evil, they are dealing with problems at school - teachers raising from the dead, mad scientists trying to dissect them, and the surprisingly short quest to find the legendary sword Excalibur. Plus a whole lot more, but you don't want me to ruin it for you, do you?

The art and design for this series is of the hate it or love it style. It is very creative, a bit cartoonish, and occasionally freakish. The moon has eyes and a mouth and drips blood. That kind of thing. I felt that it set the tone of the series perfectly. The music is also surprisingly well done. Lots of anime I've seen have had good scores, but I mostly don't remember them once the show is over. I can't say that I'd go out and buy the soundtrack for this show, but it was memorable enough to stick in my mind. I was also very impressed with the English dub. I normally prefer to watch anime in Japanese (with subtitles) but when a dub is really good I watch it in English. The dub for Soul Eater was very well done and the voice actors for Kid and Crona were especially good.

When I first started this series I wasn't impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Characters Make This Show February 9, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Soul Eater has a unique art style that gets some getting used to but once you do...you realize how awesome it is. It's hard to describe but I really love it, when I read the first chapter of Soul Eater manga I was actually wishing for the art to look more like its anime counterpart. Also the opening song...is completely addicting I am in LOVE with this opening! This song is stuck in my head night and day and the accompanying animation really suits it.

Why did I start watching this series? There was a lot of hype around it as the `next hit shonen series' and in all honesty I've never been a part of any of the hit shonen series from episode 1 so I thought I'd follow this one right from the start. The first 3 introductory episodes were ok...I felt a lot of fanatic fans that were raving about it at that point were prematurely excited. But after that point things started picking up fast and now I'm completely involved with the plot. It's a great combination of action/comedy, my ideal anime is one with addicting action and humor that makes me laugh out loud a lot...and so far Soul Eater is only the 2nd series to accomplish this. The author has also wet my curiosity as to how strong these defective characters really are when they momentarily overcome their (usually) incapacitating personality flaws.

This series is overflowing with ridiculously awesome characters and completely random humor, I love it! A random aspect that I really admire is that the author dared to make a female the protagonist as a girl that enjoys Shonen I really enjoy this change. The only other series that I've read/watched (thats considered Shonen) that has a female protagonist is Claymore.

4.0 out of 5 stars Your soul is mine! February 1, 2011
Format:DVD
"A sound soul dwells within a sound mind and a sound body." If a soul becomes evil, it has the potential to turn into a demonic kishin -- which is when the meisters and their shapeshifting weapon/partners come in. "Soul Eater Parts 1 and 2" is a solid beginning to a well-written, deliciously Halloweeny fantasy series, with solid writing and a twisty-turny subplot that promises to get even better with time.

The meisters of the DWMA work for Lord Death to keep the world from being overrun with kishin -- they get rid of evil souls, kill monsters, battle witches, and try to collect souls so that their weapon/partners can become Death Scythes. Among their number are Maka and her scythe Soul Eater, narcissistic ninja Black Star and Tsubaki, and Death's OCD son Death the Kid and his twin pistols Patty and Liz.

But nabbing the right combination of evil souls isn't their only problem: they have to grapple with zombies, mad scientists, the legendary sword Excalibur, a vengeful werewolf, and the demon blade Masamune (who also happens to be Tsubaki's brother). Even worse, the meisters must battle the evil witch Medusa, who has infected Soul Eater with the madness-inducing black blood. Btu this little group may be the world's only hope when Medusa seals away Death and his meisters, so she can unleash the ultimate horror on the world.

"Soul Eater" is a series that looks kind of... well, cartoonish. Think bug-eyed trees, big grinning sun and moon, cats in pointy hats, and an academy apparently built out of skulls and candles. All it needs is some vampires. Fortunately, there's substance under all the Halloween kitsch -- "Soul Eater Parts 1 and 2" is a solid dark fantasy story that becomes outright brilliant in its second half.

Does it get any better?
It gets a lot better. After the weak first 3 episodes, the series starts kicking it into gear, and the actual plot starts coming into play in episode 7 which introduces a villain. So like most shows, stick with it, it gets better!
