Recently many fansubbers reieved notification that they have to stop fansubbing several series. Whenever C&D letters go out, the general anime populace does as it’s told – on this occasion however it was met with outrage. This was simply because the majority of the series that were asked to stop being subbed were not being licesned.
One of those animes was Soul Eater; however, it’s recently been confirmed by the North American company that Soul Eater will officially be translated by the company and it should be released in the USA on the 17th November, 2009. This would tend to indicate that the UK release will be early 2010.
