Japanese Bilingual ‘Soul Eater’ Blu-ray Anime Box Set Coming
With Soul Eater Not! in production, it’s not a surprise that the original series would surface once more in Japan to build interest and grab a few more sales. Media Factory and Kadokawa are coming together to bring the two previous Blu-ray box sets together into one box set that will debut on February 26th, 2014 and will retail for 31,500 yen. The release is using the previously created materials which means that in addition to the Japanese language track, we also get the English language dub and English subtitles on it.
Extras include a good bit of material as all the late show extras are included with the 51 episode box set, clean opening and closings, commentaries, commercials and promotional videos.
Plot concept: Maka is a Meister and Soul is her Weapon. As students at the Grim Reaper’s Death Weapon Meister Academy, their study habits couldn’t be more different. But in battle against the supernatural forces of evil, they’re a freakin’ lethal team.
That’s when Soul transforms – literally – into a razor-sharp scythe, and every defeated wicked soul he sucks down makes him more deadly. That’s when Maka unleashes the merciless slayer within, wielding her partner and dropping monsters. Seriously. Monsters. Like the witches, werewolves, and zombies that lurk in the shadows and feed on the souls of the innocent.
Every freakish ghoul Maka and Soul take out strengthens their bond, and fighting alongside their fellow Meister/Weapon classmates, Maka and Soul are the world’s last line of defense against evil.
