Soul Eater started out as a manga series. The anime is an adaptation of that manga. For the first 34 episodes or so, the anime was pretty damn faithful to the manga. Of course, the anime studio noticed a bit beforehand that they were running out of manga to adapt, and they only had a 51-episode budget, so they did the best possible choice: they diverged from the original manga's plot and took their own spin on the duration of the season, tying up as many of the remaining plot points as they could for a premature ending. If you ask me, they picked a wise point in the story to split off from the anime. Otherwise they'd have to add more plot points that would risk being unresolved in the end.
As we speak, the manga is still being released, with no foreseeable end currently in sight. The characters and a few major events are all developed quite differently. If you can find any copies, I definitely recommend you read them.
Now, as for the second season:
The animation studio responsible for producing the original anime is "Bones", the same studio that brought us Fullmetal Alchemist, which was a very loose adaptation that ends up being developed differently has requested by the creator of the series. Now Bones has made Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, a new adaptation that follows the original manga more closely.
What does this have to do with Soul Eater, you might ask?
Well, word has it that the producers of the anime are considering waiting for the Soul Eater manga to play out for a bit longer. Maybe when it's close to finished, then a new season, or perhaps more appropriately, a whole new Soul Eater anime will be produced.
It's just a rumor best taken with a pinch of salt, and you can find it in this video:
hhmmm, well there should be, they could be more information on things, like makas weapon blood and kids lines (<3 kid!) connecting and stuff. the manga is still on-going, and i know people have said things like 'but its so different from the manga now' hayate no gotoku had the same thing, but they sorta went back in time to create he next series. but they should make a second series... ive heard rumors that they will too! this one dude even sent me a link to the next soundtrack (but i couldnt download it because i have low memory space) in any case, im eing a bad girl and keeping my hopes up.
i also just wanna see more kid. cuz i love him and hes mine X333
and... and... maka and soul could become a couple!
and... and... in the latest chapter of the manga, it said ' to be continued... so... so KID KUN!!! =P
i've been in japan for 2 month! i just checked the website. You know, i read everyone's posts here and it's simple. everyone wants somthing more from soul eater. there is some evidence for soul eater season 2. if you have seen the soul eater repeat show, the op doesn't make sense. In the beginning, crona was on the other side. There are characters that didn't come out before. Death City didn't have a amusement park or a giant monster coming out of the ground. that's because it was actually meant for the season 2.if you want proof go type in soul eater season 2 in 2012 in google.kr( i'm half korean, half japanese, you see)the producers apperently wanted a second season, but Bones wanted to wait until the manga was nearing it's end and they were short of funds for it.it might come out in 2012-2013. however, this is certain. soul eater will have a second season some time sonner or later. Anyway, there is nothing we can do right now. stay optimistic and wait.
The creators of the Anime really want to make a second season,but they want to see how the series plays out. Here is a quote from where I got the info: "Masahiko Minami of Bones, Koji Taguchi of Square Enix, and Ryo Ohyama of Aniplex mentioned that they want to create a second Soul Eater anime after waiting and seeing how the story progresses."
I also heard that they are making a second season because allot of fans were demanding it.
No i looked it up, it was a 51 episode series...I know its a major bummer. I really wished they would have shown more of soul though i mean the name of the show was his name so he should have been in it more.
there HAS to be a 2nd season. 51 episodes is way too short and there's still so many things that are yet to be revealed, e.g.: maka being a weapon. everyone's curious about that. they can't just finish the series without telling the viewers more about it.
well, the point is i'm gonna go crazy if there isnt a 2nd season (and i'm pretty sure other people would too)
Yes, but it said anywhere that BONES can't make another projet like that, and any other things like that...I know, everybody want another season, and think another should appear..but I'd like evedence(s). i'm more than worry about this, and i had to be fixed on anything (sorry for this english, but i'm french)
there shuld be i mean makka's mom still hant shown her self.and after the first 5 episodes they ditch there first goal of being the altament weapon plus black star has to surpas god and maka and soul need to become more then weapon and master :D
There are going to be mre. check the funimation youtube list for soul eater and they are translating and subbing more episodes. they have 51 available right now but they own up to 71 right now so keep checking.
I'm guessing not. First, the manga and anime ended up really different. During the end the whole battle with the kishin was very different then what's going on the manga.
But then again:
I heard on youtube somewhere that Full Metal Alchemist was never supposed to have another season a few years ago. Then recently they decided to make more.
So who really knows.
But let's all cross our fingers that they'll decide this show is too good to end :D
i'd like a second one the mnaga is more ecchi than i can handle so it'd be nice to have an ending with the biggest questions answered in an anime... since i don't know the differences between anime and manga, i couldn't be outraged by extreme deviances
Yes, they will have a second season to Soul Eater, but it is a manga(a comic) It will be called Soul Eater Not! It began serialization in Monthly Shōnen Gangan on January 12, 2011. It will probably be turned into an anime later on(hopefully. They don't know right now).
definitly cuz way too many ppl want to see wat happens to soulxmaka and deth the kid lol so ya unless they have a big fanaly where makaxsoul makeout and deth finds a gf as semetricl as him so most likly 2 sesons
Since I have nothing to do and Soul Eater is my FAVORITE show EVER! (As of about 1 month ago because that's when I discovered it) I have been researching like Professor Stein would on dissecting something xD anyways I found out a lot about Soul Eater and many people have there own
theories on when it will have a 2nd season IF there is a 2nd season at all. And I have run into a couple websites and read the forums and they say that the creator of Soul Eater (they didn't leave sources to prove if this is true or not so I don't even know if its true but I sure hope it is) wants to create another season AFTER the manga comes to an end which nobody knows when that will happen so it could be a while but most people say at some point in 2012 or 2013 or even longer but the point is a lot of people believe that Soul Eater WILL RETURN but in the future. If you find out any information other wise please comment! And feel free to comment anyways if you feel the need to! (=
Yes, it's called Soul Eater Reapeat Show. It'll be like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, same thing but more along the lines of the manga. They already have two openings for it.
There is also a spinoff manga called Soul Eater Not!, which is about a different team (I forgot their names XD) but the original cast will make cameo appearances. So far, Soul Eater Not! has only been released in Japan and I'm not sure if or when it will be released in America.
I think they will becuz ppl r demanding it and there were alot of unanswered questions in the show soul eater, so it would be a good idea if they made another season so they can answer them:)
1. who is maka's mother?
2. where did maka get her weapon blood?
and many more!
but all we can do is hope that they will make a 2 season:3 Because i really want to c death the kid!!!!!
soul eater will have another season. the creators have already announced it. the Japanese episodes will come in november 2011. and the english dubbed episodes should come shortly after. good enough answer for ya :)
Well, there's Noah,Gopher,The Clown,Griko is still out there..maybe Arachne,Kim's 'witch' secret, Maka's mom, Soul's parents, or even Wes =DD. They could just add them. Even the people from the video game Montone Princess :\ They should add Noah and Gopher (I love his :<!)...What about the 'genderbend' one =) that would be funny O_O!
It didn't end right, like there's too many questions, like is Soul gonna be a deathscythe in the anime, will anyone..? Where's Free, Eruka, and Mizune? Like so many... D: I hope the rumor is true about the new season in 2012 <<<3333 I miss Kiddo :DD
there you are!
don t'you know that who created full metal
alchemist is the gangan comics?
now you are gonna say
what the hell are you talking about?
now i will answer you
read my theory
i m'sure that ll'be the second season of soul eater but soul eater too was created by gangan
comics the same thing to full metal alchemist
then, who have watched full metal alchemist and
it's a fan must remember that the second season
coming up after the manga............
don'ya think that the gangan comics use the same
system with soul eater?????????????????
yes, think about it.
pokemon lasted years and is still going so soul eater which me and my mates say is more epic then pokemon, has got to have a seson 2,
plus if so many people want a seson 2 then they will have to make it.
I've read a lot of negative comments about this show, about how they totally ruined it half way through the season. I just want to say they either aren't true anime fans or they are just so close minded they can't appreciate an awesome thing. This is the first anime show that I really got into, not only was it entertaining with all the fighting but it sent out a lot of positive messages and words of wisdom. I really hope they make another season because this show has so much potential to keep going and I will support it because there is not one negative thing I have to say about it! Never a dull moment and always keeps you guessing!
Well if you think about it they left ALOT out of the manga... i've only been able to read random part of it but ... what about when kid is under the madness? and what about maka and kids mother? and souls parents! wil liz and patty also i know we've seen about the loving on the streets and stuff but how did they get there? will soul and maka aver be a couple and with all the fanfictions about kid and liz getting to gether? there are so many un answered things even thought most are only small things! and if they end up making a live action movie they'll leave even more things out and well... i might be a bit rubbish. seriously if they dont make a second season i will scream and i dont care if they cant understang english i'll be writing a letter complaining!!!
I just finished watching soul eater an I want more... MORE!!!!
So many questions I need answers for, like how did make become a Weapon when she was a Meister and her mom
And what will happen to chrona and that chainsaw guy and Justin... So many questions, need new better series
I've watched all 51 episodes of Soul Eater. I'm not doubting one bit that they'll add a second half to the series. It'll probably have a sub-title like other Anime's. For example, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Naruto: Shippuden, are both two series that have two different halves.
I've been told that they're waiting for the Manga to finish before they continue the Anime.
