Anime Review: Soul Eater Not!



Soul Eater NOT! is a side-story to the main series, focusing on a freshman halberd named Tsugumi Harudori, who befriends two other meisters, Meme Tatane and Anya Hepburn. All three take part in the NOT (Normally Overcome Target) class at DWMA and learn to control their powers in order to overcome their difficulties to have a normal life, as opposed to the battle-oriented EAT (Especially Advanced Talent) class taken by Maka, Soul, and their companions.

Unlike Soul Eater, Soul Eater Not! is very light in comparison. I’m going to try my best not to compare the two anime too much. Soul Eater Not! is very Moe and very funny. The anime had a huge amount of yuri subtexts (which I enjoyed very much). There were also a verity of characters and almost all the characters that were there in Soul Eater appeared in Soul Eater Not!. Oh, and if you’re planning to watch the anime, you should know that the events that happen in Soul Eater Not! are before the events that happen in Soul Eater. Though you can watch them in any order since the stories are not relevant to each other aka not a prequel.

Since its Soul Eater the anime did get dark, and was surprisingly deep. I was surprised because its very Moe. The ending of the anime was a bit annoying for me. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the anime. I very much did so. If you like Moe or a fan of Soul Eater check it out.

Overall Rate: 8/10
