The recent announcement of Soul Eater Not! being made into an anime series has been met with much approval. Details were slim to start and we just got word a couple of days ago that Bones would be coming back on as the animation studio for it, which is good for those wanting a bit of visual continuity. Now we’re getting out first look at the character designs for the show through the first key visual being released to celebrate the announcement of the production.
Soul Eater had its anime release done here by FUNimation while Yen Press has been releasing both Soul Eater and Soul Eater Not!.
Plot concept: Ding-dong! DEAD-dong! Class is about to begin, and you don’t want to be late on your first day of school! Join Tsugumi Harudori in the NOT class at Death Weapon Meister Academy, a school dedicated to training transforming Weapons like Tsugumi and the Meisters who will wield them. Many NOT (Normally Overcome Target) students aspire to join the elite EAT (Especially Advantaged Talent) class, but it may take Tsugumi some time to find her confidence – and a partner – at this crazy school!
Featuring an all-new cast as well as a few familiar faces, Soul Eater NOT! offers an exciting peek at the lives of incoming DWMA students!
