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.

What is Soul Eater Not supposed to be? Is it a yuri slice-of-life made to appeal to people unfamiliar with the original Soul Eater, or is it a necessary part of the Soul Eater canon, aimed at those who enjoyed the action and drama of the original series? The answer to that question remains a mystery. I'm not even convinced the author of the manga understands what he's working on.

Soul Eater Not is an exercise in mediocrity. It is a gust of wind with no particular destination. By jumping from genre to genre and trying to appeal to both the slice-of-life crowd and fans read more

Soul Eater was an okay show. Soul Eater NOT!, however, is NOT an okay show at all. Hell, even the title is a good indicator. You see the word NOT? Honestly I see it as a sign. Do NOT watch this show. It's NOT worth your time. It's NOT Soul Eater. Okay, let's just move on to the review.

Story: 5/10
The story is just complete... meh. This girl discovers that she's a weapon, so she goes to this academy so she can sort herself out. She meets some friends and they have adventures together inside of the school.

Okay, that's pretty bland. It pretty much read more

The title "Soul Eater NOT!" should give you a warning if you're coming to this show expecting an action shonen like Soul Eater. It's exactly as it says it is, for the most part, its NOT Soul Eater. But does it NOT being Soul Eater make it automatically bad? Not at all. This is a fun experience and definitely a worthy prequel to Soul Eater, even if its not quite the same.


If you didn't already know, the whole concept of Soul Eater is about these kids that to go a school where they learn to basically fight witches and other evil. Every living person read more

Alright so first let me get rid of the fact that this is taking place as a Soul Eater spin-off and that Soul Eater is even apart of the title because honestly, to be fair the title does say "Soul Eater NOT" so the thing you should expect is for it to be NOT soul eater. However I'm not gonna judge it based on that fact, I'm gonna be judging it as an anime as a whole and not some side series to an awesome shounen anime. I'll probably spoil a lot by the way. Grab some popcorn and sit down because I have a read more

Anime: Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya
Everything starts off cute and girly, then an accident happens where the main character discovers that she's a special person related to supernatural and non-human events, but makes new friends and starts to live their new lives as normal, and then the dark plot twist happens

Anime: Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?
Both are comedies about cute girls doing cute things, friendship etc. While Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu Ka is slice of life, Soul Eater NOT is more action.

Anime: Absolute Duo
Both anime contains exceptional animation.
Both anime features the main characters being able to turn part of their bodies into weapons.

Anime: K-On!
It is basically the same thing just without a soul eater flare to it. There is no over arcing plot. Just a group of cute moe girls doing whatever each episode. If Soul Eater Not was made the same time K-ON was made, it would have been very popular but it's not. And to be honest it feels out of place with the rest of line in the spring season. But as I digress, if you really like Soul Eater Not then K-On is right for you and vice versa

Anime: Kantai Collection: KanColle
I get the same feeling watching both even though the settings and plots are different. They both have cute girls enrolled in a special school who are making friends and being carefree (for the most part). And both shows have a few serious/sad moments but overall they are lighthearted, fun, and easy to watch.

Anime: Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei!
Both are spin-offs of parent anime (Fate/stay night/Soul Eater) with cute girls doing cute things...and fighting. While Soul Eater Not have girls changing into weapons, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei is mahou-shoujo.
