A removal notice is displayed for Soul Eater, the popular anime series. Season 1 will be ending on Netflix in 2021. A removal notice can also be found on Netflix Canada, where the show is streaming.

Between 2008 and 2009, 51 episodes of the dark fantasy series, which was based on Square Enix's manga, aired. The distribution rights to North America are currently held by Funimation, but the original episodes aired on Adult Swim or Funimation Channel.

If you’ve never checked out the anime series before, here’s what you can expect:

“Maka and the other students at the Death Weapon Meister Academy must kill 99 evil humans and one witch, absorbing their spirits when they die.”

All 51 episodes have been removed from Netflix, USA and Canada. The expiration date is currently December 1, 2021. This means that you will not be able to view them until November 30, 2021.

In recent years, the series has been canceled. It was added to Netflix for the first time in September 2014. Then it went away in November 2016. The series was then added to Netflix again on December 1, 2017.

Now, after four years, it’s scheduled to leave again with Netflix looking like they’ll let the license go again but whether it’s forever, we don’t quite know.

After leaving Netflix, where will Soul Eater be streamed?

As Funimation holds the license, the series is obviously available via Funimation’s streaming service.

Beyond them, Hulu currently holds the license to the series too but given they’re not the actual owners, it’s likely for a fixed period of time.

This anime is notably from Bones, which is currently preparing for the release of Super Crooks, a new Millarworld series. It will be available on Netflix worldwide on November 25th.

This studio is best known for My Hero Academia, Mob Psycho 100 and Carole & Tuesday.
