Well, it has been awhile since I've blogged about Soul Eater, so I have some free time to post about episode 8.. Currently episode 9 is put on hold till I get a HD picture..

Episode 8's title is..
Continuing from the last episode, we see that Soul transformed into human form to block an attack on Maka, getting badly injured in the process. Chrono comes in to deliver the final blow when a scythe suddenly pierced through the door and into Chrona's body.. It was none other than Dr. Stein and Deathscythe..
The reason he was there was because Shinigami-san ordered them to.. It was to stop Raganarok and Chrona from turning into Kishin.. Dr. Stein checked on Soul's vital statistics while Deathscythe looked on towards Chrona and Ragnarok..
As the fighting continues, Dr. Stein and Deathscythe were able to block Chrona’s attacks, and Dr. Stein was able to use his soul's wavelength to cast Soul Purge onto Chrona, injuring him..
However, what they didn’t know was that Chrona’s black blood was actually part of Ragnarok, and Dr. Stein was hit from behind by Ragnarok's Bloody Needle.. Enough is enough as Dr. Stein attacked Chrona further and kicked him out of the church..
The battle continued outside of the church, where Dr. Stein was injured again, in his right eye this time by Ragnarok's Bloody Needle... In order to counter Ragnarok’s Bloody Needle attack, Dr. Stein unleashes his Experimental Spirit Body, a cute big puppet which protected him from all the Ragnarok's Black Blood attacks.
Dr. Stein then defeated Chrona and Ragnarok using his Double-palm Soul attack. After being defeated, Ragnarok seemed to be going out of control inside of Chrona’s body as their soul synchronization became broken...
Everyone thought the battle was over.. However the Witch Medusa wouldn't let Dr. Stein kill Chrona just yet..
She then released her Soul Protect, which concealed her wavelength, and revealed herself. She then attacks Dr. Stein and Deathscythe using Vector Arrow.. Dr. Stein and Deathscythe deflected that attack by unleashing their Soul Resonance; Witch Hunter..
Medusa used her snake tatoo on her right arm which suddenly grew bigger.. The snake then took Chrona’s body and Medusa flew away, together with the snake... Deathscythe wanted to give chase but Dr. Stein told that there are more important things to do like taking care of Soul's badly injured body..
The next day, Dr. Stein finally finished with the operation.. He told Maka that she can see him already.. However, what he did not told is that Ragnarok's Black Blood has gone into Soul's bloodstream.. He only told this news to Deathscythe..
Maka is standing beside Soul’s bed in the infirmary... Feeling very guilty for not taking any action during the battle with Chrona, she felt that Soul was very good as being Maka's weapon, sacrificing himself just so he could protect her..
Hearing about Soul’s injury, Black Star bursts into the infirmary and shows what a caring friend he is.. Maka thinks otherwise by giving him a "Maka Chop".. Then came along the nurse who we least expect it... Medusa..
Her personality is different, asking Maka nicely to take her dad away from Medusa.. But after Medusa is away from the group, her true self appears..
That is one psycho witch..
The Stein and DeathScythe combo vs Chrona and Ragnarok was awesome.. At least we get to see Stein in full action.. Stein who was hardly being serious back in the supplementary 'lesson', this is the first time we got to lay down some weapons based moves...
And I lol-ed at them not knowing that the Doctor Medusa is the witch they fought the day before.. I know they didn’t get a real good look at the Witch Medusa, but if you can use your eyes to see people’s souls, then you should be able to see that her hair is the same as the doctor at school, style and colour..
And the distance between them isn't that far for them not to notice the hair colour of the witch.. Well, Dr. Stein can't really see well without his glasses.. And since his was broken by one of Ragnarok's attack, a valid reason...
Oh well... It is just an anime, and a pretty good one still. We’ve seen Dr. Stein fight with his bare hands before, and now they show him fighting by wielding Shinigami-sama’s very own Deathscythe...
Will review the next episode soon.. ^^
