anime:
awesome graphic and effects
but awesomely screwed up the story plot...


manga:
graphic isnt that good compared to the anime one
but at least the story plot makes more sense and not rushed...

stoopid bones screwed up th story plot.
good think i read the manga 1st b4 watchin the anime or i'd lose interest w/ SE if it was the other way around...
maybe they'll do better with SE's story plot if they dont hafta animate other animes...
i'd rather have zillions of fillers [like SC!] rather than a disappointing n rushed ending T_T

watched all 51 episodes to see an invincible Kishin get killed by a "courage punch"
>_< ..sigh...

Manga > Anime (even though I didn't read the manga)

Anime was good until episode 30-something... But seriously, how the hell do you open with "collecting 99 souls and 1 witch soul" in the first episode and NOT end with Maka/Soul getting it in the end (of the anime)?!?!?

The end of the anime was a big fat WTF moment. I mean, come on now! courage punch?!?!?!?

I too don't like the ending in the anime.
Not too sure whether the Shinigami really died...i mean is Death the Kid in charge now? How can Maka be more powerful than Kid?
Haven't read the manga...probably will give it a try soon. I still have plenty of other anime and mangas to watch and read

I'd have to say the manga, though I haven't watched much of the anime, for the same reason as the ones posted above.

All you noobs posting "cc-c-ccourage punch? " Obviously didnt read subtitles properly throughout the whole anime. Yes, I went trough manga to see if there is any difference. And frankly, what you will get in manga is the same thing about the bleach- unwinding perpetual story. For you kids who can't read-senseless plot continuation. What don't you get people? If you go back to Soul eater anime and START reading for a change you will notice that in several scenes Shinigami-sama explain Asura as a powerful but easily frightened entity, and I quote "He is powerful, but he is also a coward" What you saw in anime wasn't powered-up version of falcon punch. In case you didn't realize it, Asura's head was madness incarnate. When Maka stood up, and showed him no fear, and the belief in her on powers and power of Soul, Asura went berserk. he couldn't get why she isn't scared, and he was scared back. As he started to break down, her face punch broke his limit to digest what is happening. His mind broke completely. It was a psychological punch, not physical one. Just like Death the Kid, who is powerful when everything is perfect symmetry, he losses his grip upon losing symmetry.
And now, final summation. I liked the anime better. It features the battle between the good and the bad guys. It features the reason why Shibusen is made. Characters like Ox Ford etc are used as supporters rather then main roles, witch is great for me. Manga keeps adding chars like that and it will lose its center plot easy (read Bleach syndrome) Although the gore in manga is on a far greater level(and on pair with partial nudity) i liked how they concealed it in manga while keeping viewers on the edge. Manga is good, but it will suffer in the long run. Anime took every inch of energy and splashed it in our face. I was "wtfing" everything something new happened.
I enjoyed to puns Shinigami-sama made. Actually, I watched 1st Asura battle around 20 times, cus of his personality change... "Osu oisu!
10 mins later "KUSOTARE!" For me, anime works perfect. ALSO ROBOT DEATH CITY! (a little overboard but it worked with something mentioned in previous episodes)

The manga is waaay better than the anime now. I really liked the fact that Maka got her weapon blood and all but that punch was a big womp in my face when i suddenly heard the credits rolling in. I'm like WTF?!! I was dissapointed at the ending but over all i loved the way how it all came out It's still one of my fAV.s both anime &Nd manga...

And this dUde above me is soo Right! Like right on the money Right! Coolness

i go for the manga. i mean like wat the heck we discover dat maka has weapon blood then beat the kishin with a single punch bout bravery. The End...... bad such a sucky ending tell us more if the others find out bout her weapon blood. it kinda made the manga look bad, no offense to those who loves the anime but i like the anime too. its just the sucky ending still they ended it too fast they shouldve just went along with d manga. who agrees with me?

I have to admit I liked the anime better. Even though I didn't like the ending, I thought it was a little easier to undertsand than the manga. Y'know what I mean?
