On Monday October 17, Manga Entertainment will release the 12-part series Soul Eater Not! Funimation has previously described the anime:
'Get ready to meet the newest class at Death Weapon Meister Academy! Tsugumi Harudori and her outrageous friends make up the NOT class at this stylish school dedicated to training living, breathing weapons and uniting them with the Meisters who'll wield them! Soul Eater fanatics will be psyched to meet these epic new characters – and catch up with all their favorites from the original series. Don't miss a minute of the adventure as Tsugumi and her pals weave their own exciting tale of deadly life at DWMA!'
Atsushi Ohkubo launched the Soul Eater Not! manga in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine in 2011 as a spinoff of his original Soul Eater manga.
Manga Entertainment is also releasing Studio Gainax's 11-part series Wish Upon the Pleiades as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The story centers around an afterschool club of magical girls who help recover fragments so that an alien from Pleiades can return home. The Pleiades is the English name for the star cluster that the Japanese call "Subaru" — the origin of the car maker's name and six-star logo.
Manga Entertainment's third release this month is the twenty-sixth box-set of Naruto Shippuden, containing episodes 323 to 335.
