A 51 episode anime adaptation was directed by Takuya Igarashi, and produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory, and TV Tokyo; Bones and Aniplex were responsible for the animation and music production respectively.[1][2] The anime's scenario writer was Akatsuki Yamatoya who based the anime's story on Atsushi Okubo's original concept. Character design was headed by Yoshiyuki Ito, with overall art direction by Norifumi Nakamura.[1] The anime's conceptual design was done by Shinji Aramaki. Soul Eater is Bones' third anime series to run with 50-51 episodes, after 2003's Fullmetal Alchemist and 2005's Eureka Seven.

The anime was regularly broadcast Mondays at 6:00 pm on TV Tokyo. The official Japanese website of the Soul Eater anime series announced that each episode will air in two different versions: the regular Monday 6:00 p.m. version and a late-night "Soul Eater Late Show" version. Special footage was added at the start and end of the commercial break; the next episode preview was also different from the regular version. The dual broadcast of this supernatural action series was being billed as the "world's first evening and late-night resonance broadcast". The "resonance" term refers to a story concept in which the characters, such as the heroine Maka and her living weapon partner Soul Eater, achieve maximum power by synchronizing their souls.[3] 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.[4]

The episodes started airing on April 7, 2008 on TV Tokyo, and two animated specials aired on May 29 and June 1, 2008.[5] The episodes also aired at later dates on TV Aichi, TV Hokkaido, TV Osaka, TV Setouchi, and TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting Co.[1] The final episode aired on March 30, 2009. The first DVD compilation volume was released on August 22, 2008 with the first three episodes. The second DVD compilation volume was released on September 25, 2008 with episodes four through seven. Each DVD volume will be released in monthly intervals.[6]

In the United States, the anime was licensed by Funimation, which released the series in four half-season DVD box sets starting with the first volume in February 2010.[7] On November 20, 2012, the complete series dub with all 51 episodes was released on DVD in the United States. A Blu Ray set was also released. On March 16, 2015, Funimation announced that a new Blu Ray Premium Edition with a 64-page full-color artbook would be released on June 30, 2015, the same day when Funimation would release Limited Edition Blu Ray set of Soul Eater NOT![8] All 51 subtitled episodes are available on Funimation's website, along with the first twenty-six episodes dubbed in English.

Differences between Anime and Manga

Main article: List of differences between Soul Eater anime and manga

In Soul Eater, the anime and manga deviate, though the anime does follow the manga closely for some time with some detail change. However, these detail changes range from minor to introducing completely new concepts such as the Kishin-egg concept, in which replaces the Shinigami's List concept done within the manga. Some scenes in the anime are present whereas in the manga, it's never taken place. Because of this, various inconsistencies have taken place within the series and is not consider "official" to the manga. Instead, it is considered it's own story.
