SOUL EATER NOT! – 03
「女子寮の魔女!」 (Jyoshi Rou no Majyo!)
“The Witch of the Girl’s Dorm”
While I would love to see a bit more action, I can appreciate just how well Soul Eater NOT is handling its position as a side story that’s focused on the majority of the student body at the DWMA. That said, I wouldn’t mind if we got to see Meme kick some ass with Tsugumi in halberd mode.
Friendships and Misunderstandings
After this week’s episode, how can you not love Anya? The princess tsundere who left her life of lavish riches in order to discover a new way of life, she’s the embodiment of acceptance and change I wish all rich kids would adopt. At the same time she can hold her own in a street fight all the while understanding that when things start looking bad, you do whatever you have to do to stay alive. Plus she’s learning things at the speed of light (like shushing others), all of which makes her so well rounded compared to a lot of other ojou-sama types.
Which is why its really starting to hurt me when I watch her get so frustrated when she sees Meme getting a lot closer to Tsugumi than she is. While I wouldn’t say she’s inept at maintaining a relationship, it’s pretty clear she has a bad case of the deredere when it comes to getting close with others — something that I think Tsugumi and Meme can totally see and try their best to work around. So while I don’t fault them for letting their cutesy side flow free, I think they could probably try to nudge Anya a bit harder to escape that shell of hers.
But it’s not like any misunderstandings last too long — especially when you have the genius idea to do awesome things like this just for your friends.
Not such a bad person
Just like every other character before her, I’m glad to see that Kim isn’t the cold-hearted witch she was introduced at. While I could live without her constantly ending every single one of her sentences with “if you pay me”, I’m really curious about what happened in the past to have her have a stark change in her appearance and personality. While the easy answer would be that she might have financial issues, the dream she had with her previous personality attacking her makes me think it stems a lot further than just money problems.
With a villain lurking in the shadows, it seems that we finally have the final piece that’s necessary for having a successful story. While we have no idea who they are or what they want, it looks like they’re only targeting DWMA students. Either ways, I’m really hoping that this opens up the possibilities of getting some more awesome fighting scenes.
- I can’t remember if we saw these two in the original Death Eater, but its pretty cool to know that students that were previously part of the EAT class are hiding undercover.
- Tsugumi totally has the hots for the owner of Deathbucks. If I were her, I totally would.
- Also, I’m glad that Tsugumi didn’t just become a master at transforming
