It’s laborious to consider, however Soul Eater? It has been greater than 13 years for the reason that anime ended. After going dwell in April 2008, the Studio Bones anime was a fast hit with followers, nevertheless it was gone far too quickly. The sequence ended properly earlier than sequence creator Atsushi Ohkubo might end the manga. And at this level, the anime business owes Soul Eater the anime it at all times deserved.

If you happen to weren’t within the anime fandom again within the day, Soul Eater was certainly one of shonen’s largest hits throughout its first season. It went dwell simply as Soul Eater’s manga was coming into its personal, and the chemistry between its heroes was second to none. To this present day, Maka Albarn and Soul are seen as legends within the fandom, however their relevance has waned over time.

The Historical past of Soul Eater

Sadly, Soul Eater is changing into dated to new followers, and older audiences aren’t wanting to revisit the anime understanding the way it ends. In spite of everything, the show started diverging from Ohkubo’s manga at episode 35, and it went off the tracks from there. A rushed authentic ending left a foul style in everybody’s mouth. So whereas the anime could begin sturdy, its finale leaves a lot to be desired.

After all, this isn’t the case for the manga. Ohkubo continued to work on the manga by means of 2013. The print sequence carried on for 5 years longer than the anime, and rather a lot goes down within the manga that anime followers do not find out about. And actually, we imply rather a lot, lots of stuff.

From Asura to Dying the Child and Crona, the top of Soul Eater in Ohkubo’s manga is night time and day from what the anime did with its authentic ending. The chemistry between its meisters and weapons modifications dramatically. And on the very least, a reboot is warranted for Franken Stein’s development alone.

Because the anime closes on its fifteenth anniversary, Soul Eater deserves one other shot at life, and this opportunity should end the imaginative and prescient Ohkubo set in place years in the past. The supernatural sequence was hardly given the highlight it deserved, and within the wake of Ohkubo’s success with Fireplace Power, curiosity in Soul Eater is rising slowly but certainly. So should you miss the classes at Dying Weapon Meister Academy, here is to hoping Studio Bones will contemplate revisiting the campus ASAP.
