Soul Eater chapter 112 : The Dark Side of the Moon IX [read here]

Second to last chapter already?

I was about to go on about how cheesy and confusing this last chapter was, but if you think about the rest of the series, there has never been a stable logic to anything.

So Maka’s goal was one: destroy Kishin, and two: save Crona.

Poor Crona. Her speech to Maka sure hit an emotional chord in me. Especially this scene:

SE 112

Dangit. Why can’t Sasuke be like this? He too, needs to understand the weight of his sins and realize he can’t just jump in and be the hero!

And from what I understand, Kishin absorbed the Book of Eibon for plot convenience. Crona also being able to use the Brew stored in the Book of Eigon also due to plot convenience. Ehh…?

And Kishin exploded and consumed the moon. I’m sad. I always loved the moon. I even have a key chain of the Soul Eater moon.

Now the people currently standing on the moon:

SE 112 0

Group hug for the end. D’aaawwwww. T_TSE 112 1

T_T

What a sport… Good sacrifices were made in this battle.

Next chapter is the end! I’ve enjoyed this series very much mostly due to their constant breaking of logic and reality. I loved the anime of this series much more due to the animation, but I feel like the manga is gives such high standards that the anime would never be able to stay at that level of quality of animation forever.

See you next chapter for the end!

#213 Change in Symmetry

Soul Eater chapter 99 : Roger!!

I haven’t reviewed Soul Eater in a while. The last chapter I reviewed was 96, 3 months ago!

Where we last left off, Shinigami-sama wanted to join up with the witches to defeat the Kishin with the soul protect spell… whatever. I don’t exactly understand what our heroes want to use with the witches’ Soul Protect. I’ve probably forgotten over the last 3 months.

In short, the witches agree, but sentenced all the Death City ambassadors to death a few thousand times, Kid gets on his hands and knees and begs for an alliance with the witches. Grandmother witch says ‘Nyamu!’ and Kid somehow understands? Anyway, Kid plans to change the world so the witches could no longer live in hiding.

Later on the moon, Sid’s team and Noah’s team meet up deep in the moon’s nose (that sounds really nasty). Sid says how much of a problem it is with Noah and Gopher there and Akane agrees. Clay tries to devise a plan to use them, but then there’s a copy pasta of the previous panel but now Akane says it’s a problem and Sid agrees. Is the author trying to say that Clay is a useless character?

Madness hallucination time! I personally believe these hallucinations are awesome. I like to go back to the first Kishin battle to watch everybody hallucinate again. It gives a good thrill.

Shinigami and Tezca started talking about the origins of the war between them and the witches and then 2nd page in!!

What the what what?!

Page 19 if this chapter has been left untranslated. AND it’s filled with Excalibur. I WANT TO KNOW HOW EXCALIBUR HAS TO DO WITH ALL THIS. Page 20 continues their conversation without the mention of Excalibur. What?

What we do know is Shinigami(Death), Eibon, and Arachne created research to create a human/weapon hybrid with a human soul and the shape-shifting witch soul. Arachne was the one to carry out the experiments and Shinigami was the one to create Shibusen(DWMA) to collect the human/weapon hybrids to train them. We got some cameo’s from the Not! series, too! Tsugumi and Eternal Feather are in one of the visuals. We also learn that the weapons are incomplete without a witch’s soul so that is why they hunt them to become DeathScythe.

Joining Kid on the way to the moon is Kilik and his Pots. Kilik hands the new headbands to Liz and Patty. He hands one to Kid, but apologizing for not bringing 2 because of Kid’s symmetry habits. But then…!

*Gaaaasp*!

Betcha didn’t see that coming.

Crona has reached the moon’s nose! Interesting how she/he says to die the moon “black” instead of “red” since his/her blood is black!
