Soul Eater ReviewSoul Eater Review by SpikeJet2736
I have problems being an anime fan sometimes and it's not social thing (I don't care what the outside world thinks of me liking anime) but because there's alot of aspects I can't stand about anime, one of them is the shonen genre, I despise shonen (at least what everyone typically thinks of when they think shonen) so why do I like Soul Eater so much?

sayings I like to go by:
A story is only as good as the person who tells it
I'm not against people disagreeing with me, I'm against idiots disagreeing with me

I judge things based on how they are, NOT how I remember them.
You have the right to an opinion, not to have it respected
