    A mixed bag! Enjoy at your own risk!!
    This series has a lot going for it. It gets off to a great start, establishing a very neat and unique setting, and not to mention some flashy and compelling characters. Has an excellent comedic sense.

    HOWEVER, it's not all sunshine and roses for Soul Eater.

    This anime abandons its core premise midway through for no reason. I can't explain more without spoilers, but it was very ...

    This anime will surpass the gods!!!
    This anime is one of my very first couple of anime of the modern age that got me to where I am today! The anime/manga loving, cosplay, and con going person I am! Its dark and has great action with an amazing story. The ending can be off putting and as always I'd recommend you to go read the manga, but through and through this anime is a gem for me and I watched it many times and it never fails to ...

    Probably The Most Disappointing Ending Yet
    This show started out REALLY great. I loved the characters and the bonds--like the friendship between Kid and Black★Star, the friendship between Black★Star and Soul, and of course the bond between Soul and Maka. It was fun--until the end. I mean, I've seen shows with corny or weak endings, but never have I watched one that fell so hard, so fast, with no falling action / down time to recover ...

    One of the Best anime
    Great story only a few small flaws, deep characters with a good amount of development, not overly short like most of the good anime.

    Only big flaw is the first episode, which feels like very much pilot episode and does not mesh with the rest of the series all that well.

    Classic Anime.......
    Great visual's even better characters lots of action it focuses mainly on three groups of weapons and Meister's with Maka and Soul being the two within that group being the main characters in this very imaginative anime has good story arcs and isn't overly violent or bloody. Having said that its not perfect the bit with Excalibur was kind of silly and this anime would have been better without it ...

    A Perfect Blend of Comedy and Action
    I was introduced to this show around the 7th grade and till this day holds up as a top 5 anime in my book. Soul Eater is a great blend of Over the Top characters, a rather simple story, and incredible animation by Studio Bones. The rather dark Halloween theme is a nice foil to the vibrant characters. Very solid show with a GOD AWFUL final episode

    One word to describe this anime: UNFULFILLED.
    Lets get something straight. Not every anime is for every person. My interests align most with compelling stories and interesting action. Even then, if the action is very good, then story details matter less. I'm a big fan of usual shonen like One Piece and Naruto from more recent years. That being said, I was expecting something closer to those series in quality but shorter. This anime is one ...

    Not perfect but very enjoyable
    Soul Eater is a great show. It'd easily be a 5-star to me if the story were a bit more intriguing (it starts feeling pretty lost around the end). The characters are good if occasionally annoying, the art is good, the humor was a bit hit and miss with me, but overall pretty solid, but the show in general oozes with a lot of unique style, and to me that is a big point. Taku Iwasaki shows up BIG on ...

    Objectively it's a 4, subjectively it's a 3
    Note: I did not read the manga. I liked the character designs and the world setting. I liked the concept of meisters and weapons partnering up to fight the good fight. I loved the background designs and the fictional settings. This series follows the shounen epic formula while avoiding most of the clichés that plague the genre. For one, it’s coed, something I really look for in anime these days. ...
