Soul Eater: Late Night version and other Spring Updates

sel0101.jpg

For those who haven’t heard already (or didn’t read the tiny hint I gave in my previous Soul Eater post), Soul Eater is set to air on two different days each week. On Mondays, the regular daytime version is released, and on Thursdays a “Late Night” (LN) version will be released. Although everyone kept calling it an “unedited” version (which has been pissing me off soooo bad), this is not the case. The LN version features additional content. Now you’ve all read what I thought about Soul Eater episode one (it’s was awesome!), and I just finished watching the RAW of the LN version. So how do the two add up and what differences are there? As of right now, not many.

As I watched the episode I only found two major differences. One, there was a very breif clip where Shinigami said a few words and then it showed a close-up of Blair’s well-endowed rack. Two, at the end of the episode there was a much longer preview that showed scenes from what I believe should be the next 2-4 episodes. Now, there could be differences in some of the dialogue, but as I’ve stated many times, I’m not fluent enough in Japanese to pick up the differences without paying very close attention.

So is the LN version anything to get super-excited about? Not really, but I have to admit, I did get kind of excited about that extended preview…nice shots of action from Black Star, Death the Kid, Maka, and several others. The LN version itself wasn’t all I’d hoped it be, but it has managed to get me even more excited about the next episode…screw H2O, Soul Eater rocks your soul! (as for what version I’ll be following…it’ll be whatever the best sub group is following)


In other news, just thought I’d update our readers on what’s going on around THAT behind the scenes:All series that have already aired are being picked up by there respective bloggers. This means that 90% of the coverage here is going to be sub-based. Just because To Love-Ru airs on Thursdays doesn’t mean subs are out on Thursdays. Good news is, you don’t have to listen to me and Impz so much anymore as Calawain, Crusader, Extrange, Shokkeru and all the writers here start chipping in.

There are only a few shows that have yet to premiere (or that don’t have RAWs yet), those being: Kaiba, Junjou Romantica, Golgo 13, Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, and Nijuu Menzou Musume. I doubt we’ll be covering Golgo 13 extensively, but the rest of those shows should have a decently sized entry committed to them.

Some shows have aired and we haven’t written anything on them yet. For the most part this is because they were either horrible, or the first episodes just didn’t catch us in a way that made us want to put in the extra effort to write about them on top of all the work we’ve been doing for the shows we are interested in. 30+ shows is a LOT. We are working on a “Spring 2008: Leftovers” post though, in which we we’ll briefly touch on those series we have missed. Look for it sometime Saturday/Sunday.

Library Wars was the hawtness and there will be a post on it later tonight when Impzie wakes up. Go watch it and be ready to rant about it with us!

Thanks for reading and I want you all to be ready to post some massive feedback come Saturday. I’m planning on posting a small questionnaire to our readers about the new season, ideas you may have, things you want and don’t want, etc…so start brainstorming (don’t post here…wait until Saturday!!)!

    I didn’t like it. Too much of garblob bullshiting about how much they should be manly & cool. Too similar too GL.
    I hate shows like this. Hope we won’t see any more ego-based shows in the future.
    Also, I would really love it if some girl would have beat the crap out of those garblobs.

    @Leviahan DarklyCute: Heh, it’s just the initial impressions. Go see episode 2 and 3 and you will check that the other characters have different attitudes

    This isn’t GL. And trust me that the women in Soul Eater are the ones with the balls :-p

    When I was a little kid I used to think it was really cool that megatron turned into a gun, but as an adult I kind of feel that a character turning into someone else’s weapon is a really, really stupid concept. That aside, the animation for the fights was very nice. So soul eater has bones making its anime and Square making its game – I wish my favorite mangas had gotten such lucky treatment.

    I agree with Levihan that there is a kind of Gurren Lagany feel to it, though I can’t quite put my finger on why, its quite subtle and theres obviously a lot more frames of animation in the action scenes of soul eater than GL, I guess its more about the style.

    @Leviahan DarklyCute

    GAR hate much? ego based? Manly and cool? FUCK YEAH. If you don’t like it, I kindly show you the exit door.

    Really, I don’t think Gurren Lagann comparison is not a bad one. I never understood the unnecessary Gurren Lagann hate either.

    So the show is GAR, has tons of great action, lots of boobs, what more can a viewer want? It’s going to be a love it or hate it deal for some. But I wish those who keep hating on it drop it instead of watching it whole then pretending they hate the show.

    I’ve heard about SOUL EATER from a friend and i thought it would be just like other shounen shows but i was wrong. Out of curiosity, i watched the first ep and was completely blown away! I like the action scenes, the fight was pretty decent, and i like the fact that Maka fought only with the weapon with no magic and still kicked ass. I’m definitely going to stick around and watch this series^_^
