Soul Eater NOT! is a spin-off and side story that takes place one year prior to the events of the original Soul Eater. At the Death Weapon Meister Academy, humans born with the power to transform into weapons and those with the power to wield these weapons (Meisters) train to hone their natural talent. The characters of the main series are enrolled in the Especially Advantaged Talent class, where they train to become warriors of justice capable of defeating what threats prey on innocent lives—or even the entire world.

Other students at the DWMA are less talented. Members of the Normally Overcome Target class focus less on being warriors of justice and more on controlling their powers so they don't hurt themselves or anyone around them. Tsugumi Harudori, a new halberd-transforming student, meets Meisters Meme Tatane and Anya Hepburn and quickly grows indecisive about which of the two new friends should be her partner. As they learn to use these powers and settle in, their lives as everyday students will be far from normal.

It's literally a slice of life in the Soul Eater universe.
So, if you like Slice of Life and Soul Eater you probably will also enjoy this anime. (i don't see why not)
Actually i wish there were more animes "like that", slice of life in some specific universes... :P
And... As the title says Soul Eater NOT! it's NOT Soul Eater or kinda like Soul Eater at all, but it's pretty decent for a slice of life.
But of course, it would be better if the title was something like "MORE Soul Eater!" and it was more of Soul Eater, damn, i really miss that anime and i ...

Mixed Feelings
In short, for me, this is like if someone had a fever dream of the original Soul Eater anime and decided to write a fan fiction of it on Wattpad. Don't know why but it just gives me that feeling. It can appeal to a newer audience but I personally don't like it like how I love the original Soul Eater anime. Reasons as to why is because the rugged art style of the original art style isn't present in the Soul Eater NOT anime. Yeah it's cutesy but it doesn't give me the same raw feeling that the original one gives me. Yes I ...

Soul Eater NOT is NOT good and it is NOT a good spin-off to Soul Eater.

This is one of those things where you watch it for hints of already established characters but you end up watching a sorta yuri anime.

Now says I need to write a longer review but there isn't much else to say unless I waste more time than I already have dissecting this non-expanding Facade.


I just read some reviews with the plan to counteract them but I ended up noticing the same arguments I made being used (also I wasn't standing out with my jab at the NOT title)
