Review: Soul Eater

Plot Summary:
Set in the Shinigami technical school for weapon meisters, the series revolves around 3 groups of each a weapon meister and a human weapon. Trying to make the latter a “Death Scythe” and thus fit for use by the Shinigami, they must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and 1 witch.
Soul Eater is an anime that centers around meisters and their weapons and their mission to collect 99 evil souls and 1 witch soul. Upon doing that the meister’s weapons will become a Deathscythe, which is the highest title for a weapon. Maka, Soul Eater, Black Star, Tsubaki, Death the Kid, and Patty and Liz Thompson are the characters Soul Eater revolves around. Besides taking the time to gather souls these students of Shibusen defend Death City from some of the most powerful of creatures while still attending school and trying to become stronger.


The Shinagami are an ongoing theme in Japanese Anime and stories, they are specially tasked people who make sure that spirits go to the heaven and to defeat demons. In this case Maka and the other Meisters attend Shibbusen to train and become more powerful to defeat these monsters, it is run by the Shinigami who is one cooky character. The action picks up from the start, the weapons of the Meisters are humans as well, and every Mesiter is paired with a specific Weapon based on their characteristics. In this case Maka has Soul Eater, Black Star has Tsubaki, and Death Kid has the Thompson Sisters. The combination of these characters with a lot of comedy thrown in, they face some adverse characters while in development with alot worse in store. This is one of the longer animes going for about 50 episodes but once its don’t your just not happy its done, you keep wanting more, the comedy and entertainment of the characters with the great story line keeps you wanting more.
