"Soul Eater" Anime Joins Toonami Block

Adaptation of Atsushi Ōkubo's manga to replace "Samurai 7"

After being spoiled in a listing on TV Guide, both the Toonami tumblr and Jason DeMarco's Twitter confirmed the addition of Soul Eater to the late-night anime block.


Soul Eater will replace Samurai 7 once it ends, with a 1:30 a.m. premiere set for February 17. Toonami will run a promo for the series next week.


Soul Eater is based on the manga by Atsushi Ōkubo, which has been running since 2003. The Bones anime adaptation, released on home video by FUNimation, ran for 51 episodes from 2008-2009.
