Soul Eater Not! 01 – If one is Good, then Two Must Be better and the Threesomething Awesome ^_^

Awe!! Pein here yet again, and with the Soul Eater Spin of Breakdown ^_^ Soul Eater not? I am kinda confused by it too. They say its not about eating Souls but then that is the point of the manga O_O but that aside…. I was really excited for this chapter and to see what Oku had instore for this new spin off. Though I had hoped for a time period more around the time of Stein, Spirit etc being Students, this chapter was very informative of how exactly DWMA works and how they all put together.

This manga I think will be more like Vantage Point the movie, it will show the current story from a whole new perspective. While not actually retelling the story, but there will be points throughout hinting to the original but again from a new perspective…

Soul Eater No T ? O_O

So we know now that Death City is in Nevada somewhere, only in a America O_o I guess, I liked how Soul Eater uses real locations and building designs etc seems to corrolate with their locations and we knew the Spirit was North America’s Death Sythe but I wasn’t really expecting Nevada but I guess that explains where Spirit could go for a good time and how he lost his wife @_@ and all you gotta do is climb a lot of stairs till you almost die and then you are there (11 Pages Worth if you add Adverts)… It reminds me of a scene in Ace Ventura 2,

 

Couldn’t embedd for some reason, meh…

"Turn Around" ?

So we get a bit of a background on the new hero and her main “thing” is she is inlove with love…. Now that sounds thrilling right there, I mean lets throw away power and revenge and well anything actually cool and say we love love, that is kinda like Hating Hate. So at first I was not really that excited about this manga,but as I read it I saw that in the overall universe of Soul Eater this could be an awesome Manga.

The Background it gives is pretty good if you think that Uko probably wants some info to be saved for Soul Eater itself but with some fan asking to gain more knowledge of the smaller details this new manga is the perfect opportunity instead of wasting time in the Oringinal this one can deal with it in a light and pleasant way, while SE becomes more dark. It can be easily seen as a new database on all the things we skipped in SE with new characters.

I laughed at Black Star’s entrance into the manga and I truly hope there are more moments like that, it was the true turning point in this chapter and my interest in this manga, I must say, increased from that point onwards.

What also interests me is the “New Timeline” created by this manga.

Sid – Not yet a Zombie (maybe we find out how he dies? )

Medusa – Still the School Nurse.

but Soul – Maka – Star – etc = Seniors? Which would mean its close to the beginning of SE.

Step one - Pretend to fall... Step 2 - Reach out... Step 3 - Enjoy 😉

The best description I have heard for this new Manga is:

Soul Eater Meets Yuri is the feeling i got from this. but then whats wrong with that, nothing thats what.” Mangaseeker88

Its pretty much getting back some of Soul Eaters old qualities that seem to have been lacking in recent weeks, humor and well perviness, plus I think I mentioned something about information too.

We are then introduced to the next two major characters

Meme – The forgetful girl with a big chest heart. She seems to suffer from short term memory loss and because of that also seems quiet Naive, which in a female supporting character is kinda normal… (Hinata, orange haired girl in Bleach etc)

Anya – Princess type character, she seems to just be bored most of the time looking for something different to do, but out of the two Meisters she seems the more cunning and able fighter, whereas Meme still seems unable to do much, maybe she forgets… She is more the Ryukia or maybe Temari type Character.

.... I couldn't stop laughing at the bottom panel... that is just the funniest expression

The other two male characters also seem interesting, but as now there is too little to say about them.

Overall I like the new series and the addition of the back story as to how DWMA works and of course the Humor makes this Manga something to read if you a Soul Eater fan if not some jokes etc will fly over your head, I would actually like to find someone that hasn’t read or seen Soul Eater Original and see how they enjoy this manga. It should be released every month with or close to the Original.

Hope you all enjoyed the breakdown of the new Series about an old one.

  1. FIRST!!!

  2. really neat spinoff i rofled at the guy who transformed everything but his head. and the last page was too cute ❤

    xD

  3. Hinata’s not really naive. The trope for Meme and Orihime would be cuckoo clock lander.
    Also the proper term would be Tsundere for Anya.

  4. Cool chapter.

    I liked it, but it will get better once all the characters have been introduced and the plot starts developing. 🙂

    Third!

  5. I’m liking it so far but it’s just the beginning chapter so it can either go up or downhill from here.

    I would like for it to be explained how you find out if your a meister or a weapon. The students seem to have that knowledge even before they reach the academy.

  6. @super they’re similar to X-men in a way. Well, the weapons anyway. For example this is when Soul discovered he was a weapon. I’m not sure about the meisters though.

  7. Lol, so your arm spontaneously turns into a lethal object and it’s the norm I guess in the world of Soul Eater. Nice to know there are things more surprising out there.

    I have a feeling Soul discovered he was a weapon before that and was just showing it to his older brother for the first time. I think Soul would be more surprised if this was happening to him for the first time.

  8. @ Super/Kanton – Also if you look at this chapter, it shows that the transformation doesn’t just happen, the girl in this chapter only turn into a weapon for the first time after knowing she is a weapon and going to DWMA. So I do not think it happens just like X Men then

  9. @Pein True, but I think this was the first time Harudori tried to transform into her weapon form for the first time.

  10. @ Kanton – That can be true but it is not mentioned that she had transformed before that. Though we can only guess from that, maybe when she got angry before she became partly sword or weapon, but it could also be in ones blood, as a heritage thing and rarely appearing in people without that blood line, look at Maka, Star, but then Soul would be the 1/1000 for example.

    Its out

  12. This whole second manga concept is genius.
    Lol at Kim taking Harudori money.
