I wanted to wait until all the character debuts were done with before i judged. So as it turns out, all the good animation was in the first episode. Blackstar still sucks. And i see this thing being plagued with lazy artist syndrome to the very end. The story, i cant find it. Other then the style being colorful i cant see any reason to watch this.
>>
The story hasn't actually started yet.
>>
Yeh Blackstar annoys the fuck out of me.
>>
When the story actually starts you realize it's just a boring Harry Potter ripoff with Bleach instead of wizards.

1st ep Full animation of attacks cause you to shit bricks

2nd ep + (Attack starts, FLASH, attack has finished style) kicks in and gives you diarrhea.

How would you know? if you havent watched ep 4 then you have no room to talk.

I agree with that one. . . he reminds me too much of Naruto and the only thing I can do is say "at least he's not wearing yellow"

Harry Potter sucks cock. I'm enjoying this more than some woman's writing where I found myself wanting to read the fanfiction over the actual crap
>>
>>11355082
I would have been happier if they did it like this from ep one just to avoid getting my hopes up. Bunch of lieing fagots.
>>
I liked Blackstar, self confidence is something we can all use a little of. Or in his case, a massively overinflated ego; same difference.
>>
>>11355172
Ohh and BTW i hate everything mainstream because it helps inflate my ego. I hate it regardless of if i read or watch it. I am so awesome.

yeah i think im going to have to agree. This show would have been better with no Blackstar or DtK. They take screen time away from the ONE good character. Now that the animation has truly shows its colors and the plot isnt worth the time. The Characters arnt people who i want to see develop. You all have convinced me that im not going to download anymore of this boring show.

Soul Eater is worst then One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach. Honestly, I don't see what people see in it. The first episode was hype. The side characters are stupid and the fights (without the flashy camera movement) is lame. This show will never be the next big thing (popularity-wise) seeing as it doesn't have what it takes to be popular. I wouldn't be surprised if 12 year old Narutards give Soul Eater 2 thumbs down when they watch it. Not even Studio bones and the (legendary composer) Taku Iwasaki couldn't save this train wreck.

Soul Eater = Lucky Star all over again. This is the last time that I give into /a/'s hype.

>>11355172

IF you hate HP, you're gonna loooove SOul Eater.
I mean, come on. The three main characters are the normal (girl), the serious guy, and the dumbass. They're apprentice [shinigami] in a school of [shinigami], and the headmaster is one of the most powerful [shinigami] in the world. But there's this evil faction that want to ressurrect the most EVIL [shinigami] ever. They successfully infiltrate the school and manage to awaken the EVIL [shinigami], who flees. His influence is having an adverse effect on the evil people, witches and monsters in the world.

tl;dr: shitsucks.
>>
It's well animated but that's it's only redeeming point. It's the same as every other generic shonen out there.

Anyone else notice how Shinigami's voice sounded like shit in this episode too.

It would be so simple and easy without costing more money. Here is what you do. Take all the people who are animating the shows two shithead faggots and have them animate more of Maka/Soul special moves. Then you can fire two voice actors and save money in the end. Sell more DVD and commercial slots. Its perfect.

This Soul Eater show is too melodramatic. One Piece for fucks sake takes itself more seriously then Soul Eater. Where's the sad music. Where's the plot? The first 4 episodes of Naruto and Bleach was much better than this. Not that that is saying much. I just wish this show was not being done by Bones. Bones has more important things to be working on. They should have handed the Soul Eater project to a shitty studio like Kyoanimation.

You are both retarded. Since ep 1 everyone has agreed that the shows only saving grace was the quality of the animation. Now that its been debunked the show is shit. The more characters they add the worse it gets. The further along we get the more the story looses interest. Now that we clearly see that we will not be getting any more animation like what was in ep 1 there is no reason to watch this show any longer. But still ill miss Maka, good character stuck in a shit show.
>>
It's too bad every other show this season sucks

Kyoanimation is a slutty studio fixed. Kyo just wants money. They keep making generic shows with tsundre main characters. You weeaboos really love tsundre characters.

The following is a typical conversation at kyoanimation:

Guy A:Hey lets make another show in the high school genre with copypasted faces and character design.
Guy B:Yeah, and the main character is a female with blue hair!
Guy A:But who's gonna be the generic tsundre character?
Guy C:Um guys, what the plot?
Guy A: Shut the fuck up moron. We don't need a plot.

I'm not the type of idiot who goes along with mainstream opinion and says every season is worse then the last. But in the case of this season, I'll make an exception. Code Geass for example is the most popular show of this season, but it's been really mediocre. I'm still waiting for it to stop sucking. At this rate it'll reach Gundam Seed Destiny level of fail.
>>
>>11356414
And only one of them is good.
>>
>>11356502

Code Geass is being really good at being Code Geass. You either like that or you don't.

Best show of the season is Kurenai.

And Soul Eater's post episode 1 animation is STILL better than the animation in 90% of other shows.

An awesome, overconfident, character who is apparently a genius in utilizing his soul wavelength.
According to Stein it's his confidence that keeps himself pushing forward to becoming better and better, I kinda respect that.

Never an emo shit like Naruto.
Attention driven but sorta has reason to be so. Whole family & clan eradicated by the shibusen as an infant he was taken in.
Watched over Tsubaki when it was her time to shine.
Is a better combatant than Maka & Soul.

Lesson learned for the 5th time. Do not, I repeat, do not hype a mediocre show. After the hype fades down there's going to be a bunch of butthurt fags who are pissed that you tricked them into watching it. People kept telling me that Lucky Star would get better so I ended up watching 16 episode of it. I've been saging Lucky Star threads ever since.

The op is probably one of the people who was hyping Soul Eater (claiming that "it's the next big thing"). And now he's surprised when he sees people saging his thread. We sage because we're pissed that you wasted 2 hours of our lives.

While it's true that Naruto was an emo faggot. Naruto was revolutionary because he was the first shounen main character who was weaker then 95% of the other characters. Unlike generic shows like Bleach where the main character always ends up saving the day at the last second. I don't even know why One Piece and Bleach has side characters. Just count the Mary Sue main characters of all of the popular shonens:

Dragonball
Dragonball Z
Yu Yu Hakusho
Rurouni Kenshin
One Piece
Bleach

Naruto being the weakest (like it or hate) was the first of its kind. Blackstar is just a shitty ripoff.

Yeah, it was the first of its kind. Because it's a fucking stupid idea in a fucking stupid comic. Who the hell wants to read about a little pissant loser fighting d-level battles when there's other characters who are 100 times stronger, yet we never see them fight?

Imagine DBZ if every storyline was Yamcha fighting some high school kid with a power level of 5, while Goku and co. are off saving the universe but we never actually get to see it. Throw in some BAAAAW and you've got Naruto.

Beacause it was original.

I don't know about you next generation One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto kids. But I grew up with DBZ, Rurouni Kenshin, and Yu Yu Hakusho. I was sick and tired of seeing the main character save the day. Or the side characters being useless. Naruto was a breath of fresh air for me. But I could see why it might have bothered you. Naruto should only be watched after you get sick and tired of seeing the Mary Sue main characters of the other 5 shounens.
>>
>>11357175
Or maybe you should watch other anime than shitty shounen fightan?

It might be a good idea for a main character to be less than perfect, but Naruto is a fucking shitty character. Good concept, bad execution. Perhaps the same could be said of the whole series.

The side characters in Naruto are useless if we never get to see them DO ANYTHING AT ALL. I'd love to see Lee, Ten Ten, Hinata, Ino, Anko, or anyone besides Sasuke or Naruto do SOMETHING just sitting there.

Remember [Insert Side Character from Naruto]?

Neither FUCKING do I
>>
One question, does Soul Eater have any Sasuke type characters. Or does Soul Eater follow the conservative blueprint where the side characters are only there for show. I thought that kid with the guns was going to be the next sasuke. I guess not.

Annoying third episode was annoying. I felt like I was watching an American show at one point. What the fuck is that kid's problem? That had to be one of the worst, cheesy, and idiotic concepts I have ever seen.
