Welcome to the Soul Eater Not! discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Slice of Life, Comedy
Produced by: Bones

Plot: Tsugumi Harudori is a halberd and a new student at Death Weapon Meister Academy. She is a part of the NOT class and is there to learn how to control her powers, not to fight or become a Death Scythe. Tsugumi must learn about and adapt to the quirks of DWMA, as well as select a meister.

Soul eater not is what you get when you combine both K-on and Soul eater.

Maka, Soul, Blackstar, Kid, and Tsubaki all make appearances.

Maka helps Tsugumi and then she along with soul do a demonstration for the freshmen class.

The other main heroines are Meme and Anya, both meisters in training who want Tsugumi as there partner.

so far this is a nice little spin-off so I think I will continue to follow it.

I wasn't sure about the time line of the series. It seems to take place during Soul Eater like Valkyria Chronices 1 and 3. The art style is cute, and I find it better than Soul Eater because of the nose. The nose part turn me off a bit. It's strange to see a weapon with 2 Meisters. How would that work? It gives off the slice of life with love triangle territory here.

Actually it takes place before the events of Soul Eater. Don't know where it'll go from here, but the 1 Weapon 2 Meisters thing is the main quirk of the the series. Not sure if I like it, but it is an interesting twist on the usual Soul Eater action.

@DocHaus:

That explains Sid being human. When they said nurse Medusa, I was thrown off. That's why I thought it took place during the main storyline.

Hmm... Interesting did not no it was going to be a prequel with a slice of life approch, Not sure what to think yet, I'm still interested in checking it out, I loved the original show, however the manga had a far better story, Bones should have took there time with that one, the manga's ending pretty amazing, I thought the anime's ending was exetremely disapointing.

@takashichea:

I think it going to follow Soul Eater story, through the point and view of Tsugumi.

I like Soul Eater better, cause I'm an action kind of guy

@Destinyheroknight:

Yeah, I think so, too. I'm not a big fan of slice of shows. I'm pretty much in it to see Maka and the old gang.

I will watch this just for the Yuri undertone.

Hulu finally uploaded episode 2 of Soul Eater Not! The episodes come in Japan on April 15, and this one came on Hulu, April 18. I guess I have to wait 3 days for the 3rd episode.

Episode 2 was a cool trip to the dorms. Reminds me when I was working as a waiter and going to school except we don't have the waitresses dress in maid outs. America doesn't share the maid outfit in their culture.

Eyecatches:

HULU's image quality is a bit poorer than Crunchyroll. The first eyecatch came from Random Curiosity, so it's a hi res image. I did the snapshot for HULU, thank god they don't subbed the eyecatch. I can't turn off the subs.

If anyone knows a good source, let me know.

Watched episode 3. It had a lot of action which I craved. It also shows more of Kim, the pinked hair girl, which you don't see spotlighted in the original Soul Eater anime series.

It's weird the girls are calling each other pervert when they haven't done anything perverted. The slice of life aspect of sports and romance problems were the main things in this episode. Akane and Clay's scene with Tsugumi was hilarious. Nice to see more of Maka and Soul Eater's cameo.

@phantomrant:

I haven't read the manga. So far in the anime, it has been a slow but enjoyable slice of life with a lot of yuri undertone.

Episode 5 was all about Kim and Jacqueline. Didn't know that Jacqueline had romantic affection for Kim. Also, for folks who didn't read Soul Eater manga, the original series, there is a big spoiler here. They revealed Kim's witch status.

Ha, need to catch up to the manga. I'm like 5 chapters behind.

@DBZ_universe:

You should watch the anime. It's pretty fun.

Now, to put my comment on the last episode. By now, I think I realized what I truly missed Soul Eater. What Soul Eater Not lacks was the crazy, over the top characters. Soul Eater Not has some normal, quirky girls and it's a cute slice of life. Since I'm more of a fan of Soul Eater, I missed the crazy characters like Stein, Kid, and the fights. At the end of the episode, looks like we going to get some action.
