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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
