Sorry if this is off topic but do I need to watch the original Soul Eater before watching Soul Eater Not! ?


It's helpful, but no, you don't. It focuses on a completely new set of characters and only involves a few previously established SE characters in more peripheral or supportive roles at most. At least, that's the impression I got from the first eight or so chapters. Haven't read anything past that.

I already got a premonition that Sora no Otoshimono will be ending soon based on the content and quality of the recent chapters they released. It's really a shame. I really enjoyed the series. Goodbye Tomoki and your pervy ways.

How do you guys feel about PVs/TV ads being added to the weekly news post? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

WOW Hitsugi no Chaika will be animated. I am currently reading the manga. Well the pv doesn't show anything I want to see. :(
Nisekoi is not what I'm anticipating for but after watching the pv, I'm really excited to watch the anime. Guess that's the charms of SHAFT.
DAL2 and D-Frag is what I'm really waiting for.

I like the idea. It helps give exposure to people who don't know about a given series yet.
