Soul Eater Review
Would you like to fall into the madness?
Despite being a Shonen series, Soul Eater subverts a number of standard Shonen tropes. For a start, the protagonist is a female, every member of the seven-strong main cast gets equal screentime, and one of the main villains never even fights the main protagonist. However, none of these ever detract from the enjoyment of watching this show.
|His legend began in the 12th century.|
|Bromance: You're doing it right.|
|Don't worry Free, everyone has off days.|
|Lord Death wants you!|
To be honest, it's quite difficult to find any major flaws with Soul Eater. There are a few minor problems, but they're never big enough to spoil the experience. If you want to see what Soul Eater is all about, then avoid the manga, and instead watch the anime. Sure, the ending may seem the slightest bit rushed, but the anime still handled it better than the manga did.
Good Things: Multiple well-developed characters.
Good uses of humour.
Interesting theme of madness.
A better ending than the manga.
Bad Things: Black☆Star - both his personality and voice.
Background music could be a little better.
