The good news just keeps on coming! At this weekend’s Comiket in Japan, fans were allowed to have their first glimpse at Studio BONES’ upcoming anime adaptation of Soul Eater NOT!, Atsushi Ohkubo’s spin-off of his highly popular Soul Eater Monthly Shonen Gangan manga series. Do you remember Soul Eater? Well, of course you can! This spin-off is set in the exact same school – the DWMA, but kicks of a little while before the adventures of Maka and Soul, this time focusing on Tsugumi Harudori, a weapon who is “in love with love” who is a student of the DWMA’s NOT! (Not Overcome Target) classes which are focused more about teaching non-combatants to be able to live with their powers. Only three volumes of the manga have been released so far (two in English), but so far, the series has carried a more slice-of-life feel compared to the main Soul Eater series.
The teaser trailer can be viewed below:
I am personally really looking forward to Soul Eater NOT! as I’ve been enjoying the manga so far (especially with Yen Press’ glossy covers that are ever so pretty).
