Taishi Ichimiya is supposed to train them, but he has no idea how to do it, even though he has been working there for eight years.

Proud of his career, Takato regards the title as a fitting indicator of his success. But when his reign is cut short by rookie Junta Azumaya, who debuted just three years ago, Takato’s initial surprise gives way to jealous hostility. Even in the new drama he’s been cast into, Junta seems to have suddenly outgrown him; Taking his usual lead role from Takato, Junta continually manages to get on his nerves. Most infuriating of all is the bright smile and kind words that accompany everything Junta does.

Putting his own public image in jeopardy, Takato confronts the young actor with harsh words and angry comments, an opportunity that Junta makes the most of. With famous actor Takato Saijou now on video getting into a fight with a co-star, Junta has the perfect medium to blackmail him.

Soul Eater NOT!

Synopsis: «Soul Eater NOT! is a spin-off and side story that takes place a year before the events of the original Soul Eater.

Other DWMA students are less talented. Members of the Normally Exceeded Target class focus less on being warriors for justice and more on controlling their powers so as not to harm themselves or anyone around them. Tsugumi Harudori, a new student who transforms into a halberd, meets teachers Meme Tatane and Anya Hepburn and is quickly undecided about which of the two new friends should be her partner. As they learn to use these powers and adapt, their lives as everyday students will become far from normal.».
