Soul Eater | Episode 38 Mini-Review | Soul Eater Summer


Back to Earth.

Quick Thoughts

Soul Eater

Trials and tribulations have a way of piling up, when it comes to some characters. And it’s usually fascinating to see what happens when they reach their breaking point. This is no exception.

Favorite Screen Grab

Soul Eater

…it was funny. And so very random.

Favorite Line

Soul Eater

Ain’t that the truth. The horrible tragedy of life. The unfair paradox of older and younger generations each longing for what the other has. It’s just such a good line and very much suits Black☆Star’s “always forward” mentality, of the moment.

MVP: Black☆Star

The idiot’s development is a real treat to watch unfold, to be honest. He’s a raging egomaniac and a moron, but he’s entertaining and a genuinely compelling character. And seeing him finally confronting his insecurities is something I’ve long thought was a great moment. Even faced with an insurmountable opponent, he’s just so driven. A character who doesn’t allow himself to be held back and fulfills all of the typical criteria for a Shounen Protagonist, but slotted into a side role isn’t especially new (or, rather, it wasn’t new even when Soul Eater came out). But there’s a reason the character type works.

Wrap-Up

Another solid episode with some great character development, far as I’m concerned. But what did you think? Let me know, down below. Keep up the Awesome!

Take Care,
