Ponera - Ishidzuka Sayori
Grimoire - Kirii Daisuke

This just came to my mind -- Are all weapons named 'demon weapon' or just those who eats human souls?

They are all listed as Demon Weapons If I am not mistaken.

What color are Black Star's eyes? For some reason I cannot find a good picture where his eye color is visible.

Has the question of Crona's gender been answered?
In the fansubs I watched Medusa said Crona was her daughter but someone else told me in the subs they saw, they never clearly state Crona's gender EVER.
Can someone clear this up for me!?
THANX!

No. Any fansubs or translations pinning a gender on Chrona are incorrect. Officially, Chrona's gender is simply 'unknown.' It has never been stated explicitly anywhere.

Is this show popular in Japan?
How is it doing, ratings-wise?

Are we ever told when exactly Soul Eater takes place? It seems fairly modern...

Well, obviously it takes place in a fairly modern fantasy-ish version of our world. However, I would hesitate to link it to any actual year or history. I mean, look at the sun. People turn into weapons, witches exist, and gods take an active role in history. Linking it to a place in real history would be almost nonsensical. They use a phonograph to play records at a party, while Justin uses those tiny kind of headphones...

Considering it's set in Nevada, and there are no Native America,s slaves or pilgrims, it's pretty fair to say it's set in modern day. Just a fantasy version of modern day.

I decide to start watching this series, so I wanna know: Is it something like Bleach or Death Note? Can I expect a dark feel from this anime?

It's more comparable to Bleach than Death Note, since it has a good balance of light and dark moments. I'd say its dark moments do get a tad darker and freakier than those in Bleach though...

It's darker than Bleach but it has a whimsical art style and comedic style akin to something like one Piece. It's like OP if Tim Burton directed it basically.

I'm starting to wonder. If the manga is monthly, but the anime is weekly. That would mean that the anime will eventually catch up to the manga's story. It seems like one manga chapter equals to about one anime episode, but that creates a problem with time. In one month the anime gets four episodes, on average out, but the manga only gets one out. I wonder what they plan to do to prevent that? Filler arc to give the manga some lead way?
Unlike FMA, Soul Eater follows the manga almost to the letter. It does shave some of the fan service though. (i.e. Sid's pantie flash interrogation, all of Maka's pantie shots, some Blair scenes, and Mizune's breasts.)

The whole mood anf feel of this series always made me think, "If Tim Burton made an anime. This is probably what it would look like.". It's touches like the sun and moon that give me that feel. Also characters like Sid, Stein, and Shinigami-sama.
Hell, Dean Koontz has a manga out. That was surprising when I saw it at the book store. I thought someone put one of his books in the wrong section.

Unlike most series with filler, this is not meant to go on indefinitely. It's got a 52 (51? something like that) episode run and then that's it. Some other show will take its slot. So there's very little motivation to pad things out. At this rate, it'll basically end at where the manga is now. They'll either end it on a cliffhanger and maybe start it up again in a few years or they'll just make up an ending. Considering that they've recently been squashing things rather than drawing them out (it's often closer to 1.5 chapters per episode), I'd say that they intend to make up an ending and are trying to leave themselves enough room to create one that wouldn't be so sudden.

I'm not so sure they will just end it like that after 51 episodes. In chapter 55 they just reached Arachna.
I think if they would just make up another end they would of started that sooner. To date it's followed the manga spot on, despite a few fan service changes I mentioned above.
The anime has had a few filler episodes. Mostly Excalibur stuff.

I think you'd tick a lot of people off if you just did cliffhanger end. Would of been better to hold off airing the anime until the manga was further ahead.

Recently, chapter 55 was released last week translated, and episode 34 was released very recently. Episode 35 is out tomorrow. That means that on average the anime will catch up within 20 weeks. It's literally almost moving 4 times faster then the manga.

I think there's fewer than 20 weeks left of the anime.

Currently, I'm expecting the anime to remain (mostly) true to the manga up to the current manga arc. From there, they can adapt or totally change the arc to suit whatever ending they are planning. But I do not understand how they could wrap up all of the major baddies in the eps left though, so my guess is they might pull an original movie/OVA later to finish off whoever is left standing, if profit/interest permits.

Although, IMO, the current manga arc is terribly interesting in how an amazingly good-sized chunk of the cast is in the same place at the same time. A lot of Shibusen's problems could be cleaned up here as there's only one major baddie unaccounted for. It gives me hope that perhaps the series can end somewhat faithful to the manga, if unfinished story-wise.
