Snapshots: Soul Eater

Crazy shounen action comedy with dazzling animation in Soul Eater (ソウルイーター), TV Tokyo’s new Monday show at 18:00 JST.

Starting with three short arcs in 2003 to preface the main storyline that went into weekly publication in 2004, Ookubo Atsushi’s shounen manga is currently at 11 volumes. Bones‘ animated production will be led by Igarashi Takuya, who’s already directed their popular Ouran High School Host Club. Slightly more worrisome is the inclusion of Yamatoya Akatsuki on screenplay duty, because we all loathe his abysmal To Love-ru, but he’s also fiddled with Konjiki no Gash Bell, so maybe it’ll be alright.

In order to battle evil Kishin (fierce gods), Shinigami-sama (aka Grim Reaper) has founded the Shinigami Buki Shokunin Senmon Gakkou (Grim Reaper Weapon and Artisan Vocational School) – Shibusen for short – in the middle of his hometown Death City in Nevada, USA. Er. Its purpose is to produce mighty Death Scythe weapons for Shinigama’s use, which is done through a process of feeding the weapon 99 evil souls plus one witch soul, which transforms it into something much more powerful. These Weapons, however, are a somewhat modified race of humanoids, who can morph into lethal shapes at will. To help them fight, they (mostly) need the help of an Artisan to wield them, and the show’s plot follows three such pairs. The first episode introduces us to the first couple, the Weapon Soul (Eater) and his Artisan ladyfriend Maka (Albahn), and they’re having a bit of trouble getting that final witch soul. Subsequent episodes seem to deal with the Nakatsukasa Tsubaki (Weapon) / Black Star (Artisan) pair, while the third and final couple isn’t so much a couple as a threesome, with sisters Liz and Patty Thompson (Weapons) and Death The Kid (Artisan).

I’m always wrong, but this really looks like HD to me, and the animation is so good I nearly swooned. Especially the OP, which is just awe-inspiring. The design is also so distinct that it will paint your entire room with its blazing style, simply bursting out of the TV. The music is similarly impressive, composed by master craftsman Iwasaki Taku, whom you already know from Gurren-Lagann. So far, so good! And this is where it all comes crumbling down: voice talent. For some baffling reason, they picked a complete debutant to play the main character Maka, someone named Omigawa Chiaki. I hate to say it, but her acting is just so poor that it makes me want to mute the TV; quite possibly the worst voicework I’ve ever heard. I’d link her profile, but both her blog and agency seem to have gone up in flames, so maybe I’m not the only one disappointed. Luckily, her co-star Uchiyama Kouki as Soul sounds decent, having dubbed several movies and played Roxas in Kingdom Hearts before moving on to make this his proper debut in anime. The rest of the cast is top-notch, with Koyama Rikiya (Takamura in Hajime no Ippo) making a very unusual performance as Shinigami-sama, and other characters are voiced by Nazuka Kaori (Hiromi in True Tears), Miyano Mamoru (Setsuna in Gundam 00), and Ookawa Tooru (Roy Mustang in Fullmetal Alchemist), to name a few.

I’m left with a split impression after watching this first episode of Soul Eater. Partly, I’m stunned by the fantastic visuals and music, but at the same time, I’m not entirely overwhelmed by the plot and setting. It could certainly turn out to be an entertaining ride, but I’ll need some more time with the characters to make my final decision. Then there’s that atrocious voice actress for Maka – if she figures extensively in later episodes, without showing noticeable improvement, I’d rather wait for an English dub, despite despising them so much.

In a strange move by the companies involved, Soul Eater will be broadcast twice every week, first this regular version on Monday evenings, and then a late show version on Thursday nights at 26:15 JST. There’s not too much information on what the difference will be, but I remember seeing something about additional content, which I presume means more blood/gore, and possibly less censorship in the form of floating soap dispensers covering breasts and buttocks.

Edit: For those of you who asked about the OP/ED, here’s the OP and here’s the ED, MediaFire links.

Edit 2: It turns out the late show is exactly the same, with nothing interesting added at all. It just has a few repeated scenes (exactly the same as the Monday evening version), and a longer next episode preview after the ED sequence. Don’t bother.

    I thought she sounded ok but Soul and black star sounded a little weird though :P

    also its Airing again at 2am, anyone know if there is gonna be any differance between the 6pm one and the 2am one?

  • April 7, 2008 at 3:01 pmTaihi

    i find nothing wrong with the voices. too much wax in your ears?

    anyways, i love the OP song. T.M.R ftw!

  • April 7, 2008 at 3:03 pmMaccaSvenne

    The official Soul Eater anime website has previously announced that there will be extra/special footage in the later airing. I don’t know anything about the extent and content of the extra material though.

  • April 7, 2008 at 3:13 pmE_I

    I don’t think the voice is that bad. There are much worse, like the trap in H20–that voice can slice steel. *shudders*

  • April 7, 2008 at 3:17 pmKanna

    My ears… my ears…

    But to be fair, the show is great if muted at the right spots.

  • April 7, 2008 at 3:31 pmtako

    I’ll wait for the s..s but has Tsubaki already appeared?

  • April 7, 2008 at 3:34 pmShinSenshi

    Better than Hentai VAs that sometimes get like 60 year old women voicing high school age girls…

  • April 7, 2008 at 3:56 pmAnotheronebitesthedust

    souleater => onepiece/bleachkiller

    maincharvoice => Earbleeding – i dont need sound – i just read the lip-syn ^^ (no not really)

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:04 pmIvy

    I’m guessing Omni isn’t picking this up then?

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:07 pmReikalover

    Is this the “normal” broadcast version or the “special” broadcast version that adds new scenes and is practically uncut?
    This shot is very ambiguous to know whether is censored or mildly censored: http://randomc.net/image/Snapshots/soul-eater-1h.jpg

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:09 pmdarkkosmos

    The voice acting isn’t half bad but English dubs will be worse.

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:13 pmrandom Dude

    Honestly, Omni should fire this Patrik guy. I’m starting to dislike RandomC cause of this dumbass of a so called blogger.

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:14 pmdrgnwing0

    Reminds me of Shamen King for some reason.

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:17 pmJin

    I think Maka’s voice is just one of those voices you’ll get used to after awhile. Her acting will progress and get better throughout the rest of the series. Personally, I think it’s kind of cute. As for the actual show, I’m impressed with the animation. The fighting scenes are awesome.

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:28 pmAnonymous

    or she could just stay bad.

    that having been said, i don’t see whats so ear bleeding about her. she can’t convey emotion worth crap and generally wasn’t good, but she wasn’t ear bleeding.
    frankly her perf was just dull, if i had to find a descriptor.

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:34 pmSadmask

    Character designs?

  • April 7, 2008 at 4:34 pmaz0k

    Everyone, go easy on the new guy.

  • April 7, 2008 at 5:02 pmPatrik

    Wait, what? Now you’re grumpy because I’m posting a perfectly valid complaint about poor acting? It’s obvious to anyone with ears.

    Anyway, I’m not “the new guy”. I’ve been posting these snapshots for nearly a year. Most people seem to have misunderstood the concept of “snapshots”, however, as they’re just here to cover the very first episode of any new anime show that Omni is too busy to handle on his own. I never blog more episodes, and all I’m looking to do is raise awareness of what’s on TV in Japan at the moment.

    Since this is a blog, and I have no intention of being a faceless robot, I also include my impressions, which means the posts will be biased in whichever direction I find fitting for the series in question. Enjoy!

    random Dude at 4:13 pm on April 7th, 2008

    Honestly, Omni should fire this Patrik guy. I’m starting to dislike RandomC cause of this dumbass of a so called blogger.”

    Dumbass? more like you are sir, with comments like that we won’t miss you, it would be great if you leaved i don’t really think RandomC want ppl like you visitng this site.

    And what Patrik is saying is so true, i watched some of the raw just to see how horrible it was and wow… it sure was like Patrik said, it was annoyin and really over done. And also this is a shounen anime ofc. based on the first ep one can’t really tell much about either plot or how fun it will be. So you guys whining about that point, can leave right away imo. i can totally agree with Patrik on this one.

    Patrik is a good blogger and usually say’s stuff that is spot on and if you guys don’t like it, bugger off.

    Good as always Snapshot Patrik!

  • April 7, 2008 at 5:10 pmSadmask

    So… any idea how many episodes?

  • April 7, 2008 at 5:13 pmAznSoulBoy

    Everybody has their own opinion. Just be glad that he posted something. That’s it.

  • April 7, 2008 at 5:17 pmtokko

    Wow this one look cool

  • April 7, 2008 at 5:31 pmstrawberryheaven

    I agreed with AznSoulBoy.

    However, I’m taking my chances with Soul Eater since some parts of the series got my attention.

  • April 7, 2008 at 5:49 pmLithium17

    Will definitely catch this one.

    The art style reminds me of works by Studio 4C. Manga is still ongoing, so I wonder if there’ll be a decent ending.

    If you’ve read the manga, you’re probably wondering the same things as I am.

  • April 7, 2008 at 6:22 pmGhOsTeDgE

    I didn’t have any problems with Maka’s VA. It actually sounded natural to me. And as for not conveying any emotions on her voice, I was assuming that that’s her character.

  • April 7, 2008 at 6:27 pmLunarEclipse

    I don’t find her that annoying. I thought it fit her tsuntsun personality. As long as Soul Eater is getting animated this well, I dont care how bad Maka’s VA sounds as long its not screeching horrible that it makes me want to pause every few minutes to pull myself together.

  • April 7, 2008 at 6:43 pmbanzemanga

    I did not find anything anoying. Rather i loved the action in the anime. Specially the first fight. I told myself that is how a fight should be animated.

  • April 7, 2008 at 6:56 pmMH

    the drawing looks like funky cartoon version of D.gray-man

  • April 7, 2008 at 7:02 pmGStrike-

    amazing animation

  • April 7, 2008 at 7:17 pmsenefen

    I like the colour scheme. Nice and bright XD

  • April 7, 2008 at 7:28 pmmelchior

    I got the impression that Maka being emotionless is just her character.

    I say give the poor girl a break, lots of VAs are terrible when they start. I remember Kawasumi Ayako’s debut role (Melfina in Outlaw Star), wasn’t very polished and came off flat for a number of episodes before she got good.

  • April 7, 2008 at 7:28 pmk0na-yume

    aww so your not going to blog this anime? man.. i hope you will blog it
    since this is olny my source in comes to my fav. anime episode reviews…
    but i guess it depends to the people’s taste and maybe in next episode
    it can change your mind..buy hey! this anime gots some amazing animation + bgm!
    they’re really cool! also the fighting scenes! i should say they got a cool action scenes and i dont think Maka’s VA does really hurt becoz she’s still a newbie and hey its her debut afterall.. i’m sure you guys can get over with.

  • April 7, 2008 at 7:31 pmgame8910

    Omni def needs to blog this one

  • April 7, 2008 at 8:03 pmPYROtechnic

    It looks like a cross between Bleach and D.Gray-man so I’m pretty interested in watching this. Hopefully the subbed version comes out soon. The Animation looks a lot like Gurren Lagann as well xD! Here’s hoping it lives up to expectations.

  • April 7, 2008 at 8:19 pmv1cious

    i thought that kicked ass. the first fight scene in particular was awe-inspiring. i personally didn’t see anything wrong with the acting, but maybe it’s cause i don’t know much about Japanese voices.

  • April 7, 2008 at 8:27 pmBerry-kun

    Yes, 720p HD… cant wait for subs!!!!!

  • April 7, 2008 at 8:29 pmBerry-kun

    oh, and… pleeeeeze blog this series!!!

  • April 7, 2008 at 8:30 pmyanipheonu

    might be fun, the animation looked good from the preview.

  • April 7, 2008 at 8:36 pmGStrike-

  • April 7, 2008 at 8:55 pmGintama

    This looks like the most interesting new anime of the season.
    Finally, a shonen show with great animation and a unique style. It kinda reminds me of shows like bleach, d. gray man, and even shaman king but the plot isnt very important to the shonen genre anyway.

    As for Maka’s VA, i thinks it suits the character just fine. I really like her unusual voice but maybe that’s just me.

  • April 7, 2008 at 9:00 pmkirinfang

    Hey Patrik, is there anyway you can upload the OP & ED for download, please?

  • April 7, 2008 at 10:01 pmwillowywicca

    Being a big fan of the manga I thought this was awesome, but do agree that the voice acting choices are a bit odd. Maaka’s voice was fine for normal dialogue, but rather lacking for the more strained moments during battle, hopefully this will improve since there’s gonna be a fair old bit of it to come. Soul sounds waaaaay older than he looks, so was a bit surprising, but it didn’t take long to get used to, and actually does suit him pretty well I think. Blackstar’s voice (what little we heard) seemed surprisingly feminine… not sure what to make of that lol, will reserve judgement on that til after ep2!

  • April 7, 2008 at 10:51 pmkirinfang

    Thanks Patrik =)

  • April 7, 2008 at 11:28 pmAnonymous

    “I got the impression that Maka being emotionless is just her character.”

    i don’t know, she seemed rather animated to me. far too animated to be an emotionless character.

  • April 8, 2008 at 12:49 amGod~knows

    Looks really amazing and for once, I think patrik is serious about what he’s writing.

  • April 8, 2008 at 2:51 amJing

    Thanks for the OP/ED. I’m kinda disappointed that Omni isn’t blogging this series, unless Patrik is willing to continue blogging this series, I have no problem with that.

  • April 8, 2008 at 3:30 amgame8910

    after seeing this episode I can say this show is really something, could become a new fav if done right

  • April 8, 2008 at 3:51 amSora no Kaze

    The voices… aren’t really what i had in mind for some of the charactesr. But lets see how the VA do.

  • April 8, 2008 at 4:48 amAnime fan

    I loved the animation style of this one, looked pretty unusual. Besides, I have faith in Bones, they are a good studio so I’ll be following Soul Eater for sure.

  • April 8, 2008 at 6:46 amJayars

    The animation is top notched… Haven’t seen animation this great and funky in a long time. It’s like… Mahou Shoujo Alice’s graphics… with tons more animation and action!!

    Unfortunately, Maka’s voice was a HUGE turn off. First, she needs to emote MORE. Second, she needs to have more variations in her tone. And third, she needs another voice. She may be a new seiyuu, but this is like… hiring a 6th grader to write Microsoft Windows. no wait… I mean, like hiring a RTS gamer to run the national security and defense. So far, the rest of the cast is amazing. But I just wish Maka had a better voice.

    Now to finish watching the 2nd half of the episode.

  • April 8, 2008 at 9:51 amTom

    Just saw the first episode, the characters are approaching dullness, without much help from their voice talent, however the plot setting and mood are positively unique, especially the funky urban-dreamworld atmosphere that reminds me of “Subarashiki Kono Sekai”.

  • April 8, 2008 at 10:10 amSora no Kaze

    ………. Most character tend to be dull at the beginning usually @@. Btw, I’m taking to account that Patrik is blogging from a non-manga reader point of view. It makes a difference sometimes when it comes to deciding whether you continue watching a show or not.

    Either way, go easy on the the new VA. It’s not top notch, but she’s relatively new I think and I’m sure that, well I presume that the Manga Artist decides on the voice. Also, dont’ expect the plot to rock right away. The manga certainly didn’t until like Chapter 14ish. Then the arcs begin. If your’e going to be disapointed over the uneasyness where the story will go, just stop watching it for a few weeks. I’m guessing around Episode 5-7ish is where the plot will come in hopefully. Then I could be long and it’ll be at like episode 11 -_-.

  • April 8, 2008 at 11:21 amE_I

    Sadmask: It’s going for full year, so around 50 episodes of this awesomeness.

  • April 8, 2008 at 12:59 pmo_o

    Quoted from Patrik : “I never blog more episodes, and all I’m looking to do is raise awareness of what’s on TV in Japan at the moment.

    Since this is a blog, and I have no intention of being a faceless robot, I also include my impressions, which means the posts will be biased in whichever direction I find fitting for the series in question.”

    Not trying to start anything, but if you’re just trying to raise awareness about the new series, shouldn’t you refrain from being so biased? All that’s needed to raise awareness is a simple summary and maybe a few comments about what’s good or bad about the series. Most of your posts are valid, but in some of them (TLR for example) you go as far as attacking every aspect of the anime relentlessly by saying everything was bad…you could’ve at least said the voice acting was decent. In that one example, it was more like you forced your values onto others.

  • April 8, 2008 at 1:07 pmPatrik

    o_o – Yeah, I suppose that’s true, but I also try to vary my writing a bit so as to make it less predictable and boring to read. In 4/5 cases I’ll do a fairly objective summary, but in extreme cases I’ve decided to let my fingers go, and just type the irritation off. TLR was simply too poor a production to bother viewers with. The exact same thing has been done so many times before (just look at Girls Bravo).

    I can enjoy fanservice shows, make no mistake, and I’m very fond of Tenchi Muyou, not to mention that I actually watched and enjoyed (most of) Rosario + Vampire. But to satisfy my fanservice show needs, two demands must be met: erection and laughter. TLR provided neither, so it failed completely, and thus seemed a fitting target for my ire.

    If you have constructive criticism and suggestions for how I should alter my writing, especially if you really do find the writing to be poor (rather than the opinion it expresses), I’d be happy to read it.

  • April 8, 2008 at 5:46 pmdx

    Pat: how come you didn’t blog ROSARIO if you enjoyed it as well? Unfortunately, Rosario was my “guilty pleasure” of the last season, being a manga reader of the series.

    On Soul Eater’, I’ll be DLing’ it if someone manages to sub it alongside keepers like Macross F, Kurenai, Vampire Knight, Druaga. It actually looks glossy and it would be shame to keep it in avi.

  • April 8, 2008 at 9:20 pmrandomperson

    she isnt horrible…but not the best. she should improve though since this is her first series…i guess. i dont mind her voice to much. but omg the op is hot

  • April 9, 2008 at 5:18 amevildeeds

    Quality animation, but no one still wants to sub this show at this point in time.

  • April 9, 2008 at 12:04 pmHei

    it looks like the next gurren lagann to me

  • April 9, 2008 at 5:15 pmBiki

    Maka’s voice is spot on, the acting is freaking terrible though

  • April 9, 2008 at 8:18 pmArh

    Somehow, this cartoony-abstract screen shot reminds me of D. Gray-Man.

  • April 10, 2008 at 10:47 amGod~knows

    oookay after actually watching it I found nothing wrong with Maka’s voice.What were you expecting?Some cutesy high voice?It could be that Maka’s voice was intended to be that way.Nobody knows.As if we can hear voices from manga we read(T.T)…As for me I was too blinded by everything other than Maka’s voice to care.

  • April 10, 2008 at 6:52 pmBROOKLYN otaku

    those few peeps are bugging, the voice is fine. and the show ROCKED!! love the style. NO ONE WANTS TO BLOG THIS!!?!?!? i know how to encode, sure wish i could translate though, ohh well at least some one put the first ep out, FEENING for the next ep

    ps= smashing pumkin’s??. . .pumkin scissor song?? hahahah dat was cute

  • April 10, 2008 at 9:04 pmKurudesu

    Loved the animation of the fight scenes, they seemed smooth. But yes i hate Maka’s seiyu. Hopefully she can improve as the course of the anime continues. She is new, everyone starts out somewhere.

  • April 11, 2008 at 3:32 amname

    wow, i can’t believe people are complaining about the voice acting. After watching that episode, i love it, the style, the op and the ed, everything. not once did i think twice about voices, but then again, i recite the name of top voice actresses every night before i go to bed…. seriously, who cares…

  • April 11, 2008 at 7:08 amPYROtechnic

    Well iono people, I found the voice okay until the scenes where she gets “mock-angry” or when she’s fighting. In those scenes, her voice definitely lacks emotion and really makes the show less funny. Just my opinion though.

  • April 11, 2008 at 1:42 pmklinc

    yea same here XD and btw its gonna be a 51 episode series…1 episode less than hayate…and anyone noticed the camera angle rotation thingy in the middle of the fight???

  • April 11, 2008 at 6:22 pmdanter

    i don’t think maka’s VA is so bad or annoying… this seems a really good show, so i’ll continue watching anyway

  • April 11, 2008 at 8:13 pmCyph

    I love the voices…
    The gal saying “Soul Eater” i found amazing, truely loved em

  • April 11, 2008 at 9:35 pmKev015

    At first Maka’s voice surprised and scared me. I thought “OMG, all the girl voice acting are those with squeamish high voices. BLASMEPHER!”

    And then I got over it. It’s okay. I prefer Maka’s voice over some of the voices in other names (I’m not going to point fingers). It’s just a bit different, hearing it after a while makes it normal.

  • April 12, 2008 at 1:05 amChristine N

    Maka’s voice really does seems to grow on you. I can’t picture her with any other voice now.

  • April 12, 2008 at 3:09 amExile

    Does anyone know that song that plays during black star’s intro type of thing the English song that plays i really want to know xD

  • April 12, 2008 at 3:45 amLYRAELX


  • April 12, 2008 at 6:37 pmNewbfy

    Maka’s voice may grow on me, but i find it really monotone. It is a little annoying. Soul’s voice doesn’t fit, but it didn’t really bother me much. Otherwise the show was nice. I loved Blair – she was great fan service. I was pissed because I thought she would end up dying. I don’t know about the story. It seems to be just a fun anime.

  • April 12, 2008 at 6:54 pmNewbfy

    and i love the opener. I loved the one those guys did for d gray man.

  • April 13, 2008 at 12:08 amsealouse

    I also thought the voice was a tad on the annoying side, but I’ll give it another episode before I decide for sure.

  • April 14, 2008 at 2:37 amSarreq Teryx

    I can’t hear your problem with Maka’s voice at all, she’s a little flat for the expressions drawn, but that’s about it. not the best, but far from the worst I’ve ever heard.

  • April 16, 2008 at 8:45 pmDukeTheGold

    Umm, to be honest, I found nothing particularly uncomfortable on the regard of Maka’s voice acting. Sure, her voice acting isn’t quite one of excellencies. However, it is my personal opinion that flat voice of hers suits Maka’s character almost perfectly.

    I suppose that in the end, it is a matter of individual tastes.

  • April 17, 2008 at 6:20 amWenzhen

    do u have the full version of op and ed mp3?

  • April 17, 2008 at 8:42 pmSyke

    Hmm, I don’t know Patrik; I think I’ll have to disagree with you.. Excellent review, by the way; spot on, except for the voice actress business.. Maybe it’s different if you understand japanese.. maybe she’s speaking horrible gaijin-like japanese and my ear just can’t hear it.. But if it’s a matter of personal preference, then to tell the truth, I actually ‘love’ her voice..
    It reminds of that girl ‘Itsuki’ (-I think.?) from I”s Pure.. Which just had this natural feel to it and sounds kind of cute.. Maybe you don’t like that slightly raspy tinge in her voice, and if you don’t then that kinda sucks, cause I have a feeling that’s how the voice actress is trying to add character and you’ll probably find it really annoying.. but this is an amazing anime, as you’ve doubtlessly noted and I’m totally lovin’ her voice (but not ‘lovin’ like a McDonalds hamburger, lol) so, no qualms here!

  • April 17, 2008 at 8:55 pmI-Hate-Self-Proclaimed-Experts

    I hate people who claim to be experts on Anime like it’s a fucking trade or something.
    Get a clue and realize that the only things you can critique is the voice acting, the story, and the art.
    Just because it looks like something you’ve watched before, doesn’t mean the show is bad. This show is pretty fun to watch with it’s comedy and action scenes.

    Also, cocks.

  • April 17, 2008 at 8:57 pmI-Hate-Self-Proclaimed-Experts

    Oh and the OP sucks. The music is terrible…do you people have any taste at all?
    …and you complain about generic shit? Give me a break. I really hope many of you die in real life.

    Why the hate on English dubs? There are some good dubs out there; there’s Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex series (first and 2nd Gig season), Bleach, and…. and…. Oh now I see… most english dubs DO suck…:P

    i’ve started to watch soul eater..but i was just wondering abt the manga..even though the anime is complete with 51 episodes, the manga is still ongoing..may i know, is the manga storyline different from the anime adaptation?? or is it like D.Gray-Man, whereby the anime leaves the story hanging and it is continued in the manga [stating the fact that the manga is also showing the same storyline as the anime]?? can anyone tell me?? cuz i dont wanna be watching the entire anime series and then have to start all over again in the manga if the story plot is different.. =S
