    Soul Eater is about:
    Shinigami that have living weapons that can tranform into more powerful weapons. Their job is to fight monsters that try to eat human souls.

    Sound Familiar? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleach_anime

    I stopped watching around episode 25

    early bleach may have been good, but god did it go to shit later.


    at least soul eater remained consistent (even with the non manga/filler ending)

    Shit, I didn't even make it to 80, iirc. Bleach turned to shit in a hurry. It's just plain sad now.

    I promised to stop reading this thread....but here goes.

    I remember how many of the people who are on this thread a lot were creaming their jeans about Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood. I finally broke down and started watching it today......and I am really disappointed. I am 6 episodes in and it is bad. I will admit I didn't expect it to be better than the original like so many claimed, but this is not acceptable. The emotion and visceral nature of it is gone. Many of the characters have been turned into shallow cartoonish forms of themselves (I have been trying my best to watch it like I never saw the original, but it is hard). The pacing is terrible. There are not several verbal inconsistence in dubbed and subbed version. It seems to have a bad case of Bones syndrome as quality of the art will random turn to crap for no reason.

    At this point I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Someone please tell me this crap gets better at some point. Or should I just drop it now and save myself the time?

    Same feeling about first 10 or 15 episode were they recap the first anime at fast forward, it improves with time, but i still believe the original was better...
    TheLaughingMan says thanks.

    Since it's a re-make, i was not motivated to watch Brotherhood.

    It started slow with nothing really new, still it wasn't bad. I got it all downloaded, but i didn't watch it right away.... It took me a few months to finish watching all the EPs.

    The anime offers a clearly point and a more believable/convincing plot (IMO). The ending is better, it feels more real.

    Overall it's a better version of FMA.

    I doubt that, but I guess I will find out.

    Thanks for the input. I guess I will just have to wait til 16 - 20 to see what I really think of this series.

    Bleach is getting better now.

    I know what you guys mean about the similarities between Bleach and DBZ... this is because they are both Shounen Anime intended for younger audiences.

    Shounen = young boy
    Seinen = older male (18-30)

    I admit though, some of my favorite anime series have been shounen. I like the complexity, maturity, and animation of seinen anime though. Cowboy bebop (the manga) was actually targeted towards young girls (10-18), which is odd, but I still think it's one of the best series, and to me should be considered seinen... but in Japan children obviously have a higher maturity level when it comes to stuff like this.

    BTW, Bleach 302 is fucking awesome. I can't wait for 303.

    His dad came back into the series(as a shinigami), and he's a beast. Now he's trying to teach Ichigo the final Getsuga move.

    It really didn't get good till around 20... Before that it was a let down.. I just was gitty over the fact that they were going to do it different.. Wasn't going to make it a fan type anime...

    As for Bleach, I'll still try and get up to 303.. I'm at 270 now..

    The 720p of Star Driver got delayed by a day (it just got subbed now) because a boxing match aired instead of the anime (Kameda-Munoz in Saitama) LOL
