I have lent my copy of the soul eater series to my friend, he hasn't made it to any of the Excalibur episodes yet but he says he can't stand Black*Star (Honestly I don't blame him)
To me Soul Eater is a really unusual anime as some of the characters are really great, and some a done really bad.
I wanted to do a diagnosis of some of the Soul Eater characters and see what you guys think :3
First is my Personal Favorite, Stein <3
Even though he is a per-established character I think he is done so well, one of the best Mad Scientist Characters ever made, his name is a little annoying but I can deal with that, and because Shinigami is so weird he serves as a better role model for all the main characters, also there is his own separate story that involves him and Medusa as well as his descent into Madness.
The character that I personally relate to the most, he is basically the image of depression, he is always being tormented by the demon sword and is forced to do his mothers bidding no matter the cost, Although I personally prefer Stein I think Crona is the stronger character, mainly because he has the most character development in the entire anime, however for him it is always a struggle between the past and the future.
Death the Kid.
Ok, you can hate me for this but Kid is by far my least favorite character in the entire anime (and possibly the most overrated anime character ever) His only flaw is that god awful and annoying obsession with symmetry. He is stuck up, obnoxious and has no credible character development throughout the entire series. I will admit that as the show progresses he does become somewhat bearable as his role in the story improves, but other then that I personally can't stand him
Ok, I think I will wrap up my rant here with some quick opinions.
The Villains in the show are all brilliantly written.
I love the drawing style and the concepts which helps create a very surreal feeling about the settings.
I don't hate Excalibur, his entire character is written to be annoying, in which case he achieves his goal, and deserves points for that xD
Ok, Rant Over <3
