Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Soul Eater is aimed at teenaged boys, with lots of animated action and fighting with exaggerated weapons. While the violence can be cartoonish and silly, there is some gore, as well as some serious themes and dark imagery. Expect some implied nudity, sensual characters, and recurring references to sexual arousal, prostitution, and other sexual themes.
Although no private parts are shown in the series, there is some implied nudity and many of the female characters are drawn with exaggerated large busts and boys are constantly getting nosebleeds, which is an anime convention that infers sexual arousal. Soul makes fun of Maka by pointing out her small chest as one of the reasons why he would never be attracted to her. Maka's father is a playboy who attends a bar where there are escorts. Blair, the black witch cat, first appears nude in a bathtub (though nothing sensitive is visible) and later tries to seduce Soul.
Lots of fantasy violence throughout the series with some gore. For example, while a woman is hunted and killed by a demon, her death is shown in a shadow on the wall, but her body is later shown torn apart in a pool of blood. Characters must battle 99 demons and one witch, which sets up the series for lots of fighting. There is also a fair amount of slapstick fighting between the main characters. Weapons include guns, a giant scythe, and many other futuristic and old-fashioned tools.
Occasional "damn," "hell," and "ass" in subtitles.
The benefits of supporting your teammate are reinforced throughout the series. The three main DMWA teams and teammates do not always get along, but almost always come together to complete their shared goals.
