Soul Eater | Episode 47 Mini-Review | Soul Eater Summer

A rising star overshadowed by the rise of the machines?

Quick Thoughts

Soul Eater

Only in this show can an epic Ninja v. Samurai duel be topped by a gigantic mecha clash in the same episode.

How can I not choose the reveal of this monstrosity?

Favorite Line

Soul Eater

Wise words from Lord Death, yet again.

MVP: Black☆Star

Soul Eater

As much as I want to give this to Lord Death for the friggin’ mecha battle, I’d be lying if I said Black☆Star didn’t have an excellent showing in this episode, putting on full display how he’s developed beyond the arrogant brat from before into something much nobler and more admirable. Sort of taking the typical Shounen archetype and dissecting certain aspects of it – particularly the confident boisterousness that’s so exuded by many of those stock Shounen protagonists. The series did an excellent job of just cracking that wide open and exploring it with this (admittedly heavily exaggerated) character. If I have any criticisms of the arc at all, it’s how little Tsubaki ultimately factors into the resolution of it.


So this episode was definitely… a thing. What do you think was more exciting? Seeing Black☆Star’s final duel with Mifune or seeing Death City throw down with Baba Yaga’s Castle? Let me know, down below. Catch ya next time. Keep up the awesome!

Take Care,
