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.
Anime series have some very exciting and creative weapons.
I particularly like the 3D Maneuver Gear from Attack on Titan. It’s a very effective tool to use against titans and is so fun to watch the Scouts fly from tree to tree, do spins and more!
Death Scythes from Soul Eater are also such as interesting concept already with how someone is a ‘weapon.’ I also just like the shape of scythes and they swing around nicely when used.
Another weapon I like is Aizawa’s capture weapon because it’s innovative and complements his fighting style with his Erasure Quirk well. It’s fun to watch and interesting to see how versatile it is.
I also like Maki’s Cursed Tools. She’s so impressive to watch because she’s so talented with them. It’s fun to watch her make Panda carrying some too or use Megumi’s Shadow Storing Technique to store more weapons for her to effortless swap between.
Is there any weapons you’ve seen in an anime that’s your favourite?
“I hate, hate, hate everyone… but that’s alright. I can use my screams to blow them all away. I bet dead people are a lot easier to get along with”
One of Crona’s hobbies is writing morbid poetry
In Chapter 87, it’s revealed that Crona’s favourite food is pasta
Crona’s sex is unknown. The Soul Eater creator Atushi Okubo has stated that they do not know Crona’s sex, which is why in the Japanese manga text Crona is referred to with non-gender specific pronouns. However, Funimation and Yen Press decided to use male pronouns in the English translation of the anime and manga. This is because they didn’t want to use ‘it’ as they felt it would be too demeaning
The first three characters of the katakana that make up Ragnarok’s name actually spell ‘crona’
Black Sword is actually a Scandinavian broadsword, which is more commonly known as a Viking sword. In norse mythology, it’s interesting to then note that Ragnarok is actually the name given to a series of future events where it’s believed that there will be a great battle which will result in the death of a number of major Norse gods such as Odin, Thor and Loki. There will also be natural disasters that cause the world to be submerged under water
Crona’s English voice actor, Maxey Whitehead, has said that her favourite role so far in her career has been Crona
Crona’s main catchphrase is, “I don’t know how to deal with…” They use another phrase though when they’re in their maddened state, which is when they tell their opponent that their blood is black
