Soul Eater NOT! is a spin-off and side story that takes place one year prior to the events of the original Soul Eater. At the Death Weapon Meister Academy, humans born with the power to transform into weapons and those with the power to wield these weapons (Meisters) train to hone their natural talent. The characters of the main series are enrolled in the Especially Advantaged Talent class, where they train to become warriors of justice capable of defeating what threats prey on innocent lives—or even the entire world.
Other students at the DWMA are less talented. Members of the Normally Overcome Target class focus less on being warriors of justice and more on controlling their powers so they don’t hurt themselves or anyone around them. Tsugumi Harudori, a new halberd-transforming student, meets Meisters Meme Tatane and Anya Hepburn and quickly grows indecisive about which of the two new friends should be her partner. As they learn to use these powers and settle in, their lives as everyday students will be far from normal.
Well this is the only thing to do with soul eater I’ve ever seen and I do like this one. This was my first slice of life show and it was so strange to witness for the first time how nothing could happen in an episode yet still be interesting. I was brought into the calm world of the academy and it was really nice to see. Some SOL shows bore me to tears but I think this is a great one. I don’t think fans of soul eater would like this because I get the impression that this ruins a lot of the main show but it might be worth seeing.
