It's like a terrible fanfic gone horrible right.

I liked Soul eater initially because I found the premises of the universe to be quite appealing, but the highly disjointed story severely lowered teh overall quality of the manga. Chapter 73 made me stop caring about any of that and laugh myself silly. Traveling through Eibon's book seems to be an excuse to explore every fanfic scenario and absurd situation possible.

I'll leave you with a few scenes to ponder. (oh yeah, they've swapped genders btw...)

Yeah, the last two chapters were hilarious. I mostly liked how their way of behaving was actually swapped, too.

Overall, Soul Eater's story is pretty good with plenty of humorous scenes. The art needs to appeal to you, though. It's not very easy to pick up but it's definitely worth giving a chance. I'm surprised it hasn't been brought up before on here, although I haven't exactly checked for a topic on this before.

It doesn't happen very often but Soul Eater is one of the very few anime I have seen that is better than the manga.

The anime was great, I just hated the ending. And not because it was so well thought out and unpredictable.

I expect that they ended that way so they could make a sequel. I wouldn't be surprised if later in 2011 there is a second season or something.

I think it's being published by the same people that published Full Metal Alchemist (Square-Enix). So, here's hoping they do reboot the series at some point in time.

It's actually being done by a studio called Bones. SE just "sponsored" it. Although typically the sponsor gets a cut of the profits as well as merchandising rights if they were the main sponsor, not to mention free advertising. So it works out well for SE. There is usually more than one sponsor though... I am trying to remember who their other sponsors were, but my **** is all packed up to move today so I unfortunately am not digging up my external hard drive to check.
