Soul Eater: The Perfect Edition

Soul Eater has two different book versions of the manga. There is the paperback Soul Eater volumes (25 in total), but from 2020 the English version of Soul Eater: The Perfect Edition has begun to be released. Soul Eater: The Perfect Edition is pretty much what it’s name suggests – a ‘perfect’ edition of Soul Eater. The Perfect Edition volumes contain the all 25 volumes, with reworked coloured images, colourful lettering and an updated translation. The Perfect Edition is also a hardcover book, being about 1.5x bigger than the paper back volumes.

For those interested in seeing what these beautiful books look like, Sauve Reads has filmed a product showcase! I enjoyed seeing how well-contrasted the volumes are, and the coloured pages contained within each volume.

1. When Black☆Star writes an autograph, he writes his name in full caps and uses the ‘A’ in ‘BLACK’ to draw the top point of the star symbol instead of writing ‘STAR’ out. To then make the bottom left points of the star he draws it out from the ‘R’

3. Black☆Star is considered to be based upon the character Shotaro from B Ichi (another series written by Atshushi Ohkubo, who created Soul Eater). Black☆Star has quite a similar personality to B Ichi, they both have spiked hair and they both have the same favourite superhero (Charisma Justice)
