Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

Both series are great series that nail down that very childish sense of humor with passing marks. I laughed my way through both series while still getting good action and good stories.

The term that comes to mind for both of these Anime is 'chaotic comedy'. Viewers will immediately recognise the similarities between the two groups of main characters - many personalities, but the ones that show through the most are the brash, opinionated and yet occasionally still shy characters of Laharl and Etna in Disgaea, and Soul, Black Star and Kid in Soul Eater. Indeed, Kid and Laharl share another trait in that they are both the sons of immensely powerful and well respected figures.

The style of both Anime is also comparable - both studios are obviously comfortable in using different delivery methods within the same scenes to emphasise and exaggerate the story and the character's emotions - and the fantasy worlds in which the stories unfold are comparable too for their strange dark undertones that are represented in imaginative and colourful ways.

Chrono Crusade

Chrono Crusade

It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.

Demons and Angels working together is a mad concept but both of these great animes pull it off in there own unique ways. So if you like all that heaven and hell stuff these two quench the craving enjoy!!

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Besides Laharl and Naota having the same voice actors, Both stories start out with an ignorant kid that learns to grow up as the show goes on.One with no heart. One with no enthusasm.

If you enjoy anime with a chibi-filled art style and a light and funny storyline that involves demons/angels, then you might want to check Disgaea and Pita Ten out.

Scrapped Princess

Disgaea and Scrapped Princes have somewhat similar plot an there is something more, but I can't quite name it, so lets call it a gut fell. While Disgaea is less serious then Scrapped Princess, both of them get serious at the end. Anyway, if you liked one, you should give the other a try.
