The news of the Soul Eater anime joining Toonami’s programming block was already spoiled by a listing in TV Guide, but now the Toonami Tumblr and Jason DeMarco’s Twitter account have officially confirmed the addition of the show to the late-night anime block.
Soul Eater will be replacing Samurai 7 once the latter ends, with the premiere scheduled for February 17 at 1:30 AM. Toonami will be running a regular promo for the series starting next week.
Soul Eater is an animated adaptation of the same titled manga by Atsushi Okubo, which has been running since 2003. The Bones anime adaptation, released on home video by FUNimation, ran for 51 episodes from 2008-2009.
