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!
In a dark and dreary dimension, the mysterious Black Rock Shooter roams the desolate landscape with her gigantic gun, pausing only to battle against other mysterious super-powered girls. Elsewhere, a teenage girl is excitedly preparing for her very first day of junior high, eager to begin her new life of attending a basketball club and befriending the elegant new girl. But what exactly is the connection between these two worlds?
Both offer nice fight scenes but also have a story of the characters' relationships. At first I was bummed that this was only a single hour long OVA and that was that. The characters were easy to get attached to and an hour was more than enough time to grow to love the story which accounts for my initial reaction. If you were offered one bite of the best food in the world, would you take it for what it's worth or pass it up completely?
I didn't know what it was about BRS that reminded me of Soul Eater until I thought about it for a few mintues afterwords. Both Soul Eater and Black Rock Shooter take advatange of a "fish-eye lens"ish directorial device, and overall share similar animation styles. If you liked one, you may appreciate the other.
Some things in life are so bad that you'd like to pretend they're just a dream. Unfortunately for Kazuki, trying to save a strange girl from being brutally killed by monsters (and ending up dying instead) is an unfortunate reality. Out of pity, the girl replaces Kazuki's heart with an alchemy-based artifact known as Kakugane, so that he may live on. With this strange device, Kazuki gains the power of Busou Renkin -- Arms Alchemy; a power that will come in handy when monsters (and worse) begin to plague his town! Kazuki soon meets the girl from his “dream” (named Tokiko) in reality, and she tells Kazuki to get on with his life; but with his sister and friends in danger, that might not be possible. Besides, if Kazuki gives up the chance to show off just how manly he can be, how can he hope to win the heart of the alluring older-sister-like Tokiko?!
Both Busou Renkin and Soul Eater are battle series with magical/enchanted style weapons and superpowered enemies. Busou Renkin has the alchemic warriors using their Busou Renkins to fight off the homonculous, and Soul Eater has Meisters and Weapons fighting together to defeat the evil Kiishin souls and witches. Both series have a lot of action, with some comedy mixed in for good measure. And as a minor correlation, both series involve a school setting. Busou Renkin has Kazuki Muto and Tokiko Tsumura spening a good portion of their time at the local high school, while Soul Eater has it's cast spending a large amount of time at the Death Weapon Meister Academy (or DWMA) where Meisters and Weapons study and train hard to fight Kiishin souls, Witches, and ultimately for Meisters to turn their Weapon partner into a powerful weapon. I have a strong feeling that if you liked one, you'll like the other.
(: Trust me ... Busou Renkin involves the partnerships and all of the drama or fighting like soul eater
In the future, a man roams through the desolate wastelands. His enemies whisper his name with fear and awe: the "Demon of the Sands". Using his skills and ingenuity, as well as having a mind for tricks, he has a perfect record as a bounty hunter. Yet, he is still a man, and may have finally met his match in the beautiful and very well endowed Asagiri Junko. Now, he must learn to deal with the the harsh climate, hapless outlaws, and his complete weakness for the opposite sex!
Both of these anime will make you laugh. They both have great action. If you like anime that make you laugh and at the same time in the grip of suspense I would choose desert punk or soul eater. Both of these anime are completely random and filled with slapstick humor.
LOVED both shows have great action and drama, although Desert Punk does have echii ness involed, I would recommend either full of LMFAO humor, an keep you entertained throught out all the episodes enjoy!!!
Enter the world of devils! Laharl, the prince of the Netherworld, awakens after a two-year-long slumber to find the land thrown into chaos. His father, King Krichevskoy, has died and the land has no ruler. Laharl decides that he is the only one worthy to replace his father, so he sets out on a journey back to his castle to claim the throne before another rogue devil tries to take what is rightfully his. Aided by the unlikely and unfortunate Flonne the angel and the deceiving former assistant to the King, Etna, what kind of hardships, misadventures, and bizarre encounters will they inevitably run into along the 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.
As an orphan whose life is in the hands of space pirates, Coud has had no choice but to survive on bravado alone. He has nothing to live for until he finds Ren entombed amongst the treasures in the pirate ship's hold, and awakens her. In addition to being mysterious and beautiful, Ren can transform into a battle sword to help Coud fight and prove his strength -- but with this strength comes the bitter realization that power alone is not enough. Now, in a race against time, Coud must endure betrayals and fierce battles as he struggles to return Ren to her home, before it's too late...
both series are about of fights of young people and the main point in common is the use on both series of the concept of weapons that are actually beings who talk and feel and are alive. Also you can see the relationship beetween the weapons and their users and how they protect each other. Awesome fights, nice humor, and great relationships of friendship and/or love, you'll surely like elemental gelade if you like soul eater and also the other way around.
So if you like comedy and action with a bit of romance thrown in then you will love both Soul Eater and Elemental Gelade. In both, the protagonist (Maka in Soul Eater and Coud in Elemental Gelade) fight with a partner who just so happens to also be their weapon and best friend (Soul and Ren). As they fight together, you also see bits of romance developing between the two, moreso in Elemental Gelade than Soul Eater. Both are really, really great watches! If you'd like one, you should definitely give the other a shot!
