The ending was a little too over hyped. The main character was given all these new powers at the last minute that weren't even mentioned or used during the series and the "villain being beaten with a punch to the face" thing was incredibly unbelievable. Hopefully this anime can redeem itself with a proper ending.


If they do do a new ending im all for it. I hated the way the first ended, it was so unbelievable. The show was amazing, until then, when it felt like they just started making crap up about the characters to make them more powerful to give them a fighting chance, since they needed to end. It all felt kinda fake to me. So I hope they will do a remake.

Shounen being what it is and working how it usually does - the good guys will win, even if it means pulling powers out of nowhere - I could suspend my disbelief far enough for 'courage' to be the answer. What bothered me was that I had hoped for something more. Namely that the cooperation and team effort that was emphasised so much early on (and is still consistently present in the manga, thankfully) was dispensed with for the special powers of one person, Maka. As though no-one else's efforts had mattered, no-one else was good enough or even acknowledged.

Having said that, I'd like someone not to use the common tropes of shounen to get away with such neat and happy endings. Just because it's an action/adventure series for a younger audience doesn't mean it needs to be simplistic (Fullmetal Alchemist, anyone? I'm sure there are others, that's just the obvious example, any suggestions for alternative shounen?).

While granted the manga does not escape the cliches entirely (the most recent arc had many failings IMO but it still did the tried and tested shounen thing of pointing out Maka's apparently superior abilities), it at least spends time on other characters and not making everything quite as focussed on one person as the anime did. Or at least Okubo has managed it in the past - Black Star and Mifune in particular was extremely well done under the circumstances and decidedly not your usual shounen fare (find it, read it, it's...something different). In particular, if he doesn't do something with the Lovecraftian stuff he pulled with Kid's 'insanity' he'd be missing a trick. Use it right, and that would be out of the ordinary. Not expecting much, though.

Hmmm...I really hope this happens, because I love the manga, and I would love to see it animated!
Besides, the Soul Eater anime ending really pissed me off.

Actually, it already aired sometime in 2010. The only thing that changed is the opening and ending songs.
You can eat your keyboard now.

probably going for something like in hayate the combat butler season 2 or full metal alchemist brother hood, just an alternative re-telling of the story with the same characters and different end. I have soul eater part season 1 part 1, 2 , 3 on dvd it's a fun show but hmm I don't know how it ends.
