Soul Eater Not! is a spinoff of Soul Eater. Its about a new weapon named Tsugumi Harudori, who join DWMA to become a hero.

Story

The story take place before Soul Eater, so canon should not be a problem. I always wonder how the other Meisters and Weapons met, this new story give me a good look at how it is done. I laugh a couple of times, It a good change of paste from the dark story now.
 

Characters

The new characters are pretty good, their is about three new characters. The female protagonist Tsugumi is a weapon, who don't know how to change into a weapon.

Tsugumi is pretty interesting character, I wonder how she'll grow. Meme is a Meister, who isn't that bright. I have a feeling that she smart, I guess I have to wait and see. Anya is a Meister, who come from a rich family.  She kinda looks like Soul as a girl from the lust chapter in

Eibon's book, I have a strong feeling that Anya might be a relative of Soul. Maka, Black Star, and Sid have all make a cameo in the first chapter. Sid is alive, I so use to him being dead. Maka give a helping hand to the new girl and Black Star is Black Star. I hoping to see more side characters in the future.
 
 

Overall

This new story is great, if you are a Soul Eater fan. It's really refreshing to get some understanding of how Meisters and Weapon get partnered up and the school life at 
DWMA
4/5    
What are your guys thoughts about this spinoff?

The Good


 
Characters: Yeah, the character's are awesome. This series is pretty cool as it tends to focus on them and their relationships with eachother, rather than OMGAWESOMEFIGHTSCENEs. It explores just about every kind of relationship; from Maka with her absent mother and father, Medusa's abusive relationship with her daughter Crona, Black Star and Tsubaki's odd friendship, and Tsubaki and her older brother. There's a ton more that I can't be bothered to write about.
 
Art Style: Ho-lee shit do I love the art style. Everything from the character designs to the look of the godamn moon is incredibly appealing to me, though this is obviously a matter of taste. The bright, colourful, almost Burton-esque art is fascinating to me.
 
Maka's Voice Actor: Goddamn, this girl knows how to scream. I couldn't help but tense up at her screams of "MEDUSAAAAA" or "SOLUUUUUU"

Black Star: Nuff said.
 

The Bad


 
Plot Holes: Erm, Medusa frees Asura, then has nothing to do with him? So, what was the point of doing that then? Just to spread his insanity? Why? She's just gonna let Arachne reap the benefits of her work? Huh? But that's really the only negative thing I have to say about the series.
 
Death is Meaningless: So, both Crona and Death get killed... then are back up in a few scenes? Pretty much removes any sense of danger for our characters. I was a big, HUGE Crona fan, but I felt the story and her growth would have been better had she died.
 

Verdict : 7/10
