Soul Eater NOT!
Volume 1


Ding-dong! Dead-dong! Class is about to begin, and you don't want to be late on your first day of school! Join Tsugumi Harudori in the "NOT" class at Death Weapon Meister Academy, a school dedicated to training transforming weapons like Tsugumi and the meisters who will wield them. Many "NOT" (Normally Overcome Target) students aspire to join the elite "EAT" (Especially Advantaged Talent) class. But it may take Tsugumi some time to find her confidence—and a partner—at this crazy school!

First of all, if you are reading this and haven't checked out the original Soul Eater yet, then I recommend that you stop right there and check out the original Soul Eater first.

The beginning of this ...

If you are frequent reader to Soul Eater, this spin-off is what you should look for. The recent chapters of Soul Eater storyline has a serious tone. Its nice to read the spin-off that takes you back to the past to a much lighter comedic time. Introduced certain characters in different respective. (Minor characters have more back stories. Hooray!)
You also learn more about Shibusen School. Chapter one (Instantly hooked!) The EAT and NOT classes clever puns.
The characters and their personalities make the storyline so far as they are still slowly building up, eventually I know though soon Atushi Okubo is definitely going to make ...
