Technically this anime isn’t new to me. I watched the anime to completion although it deviated from the manga. I was keeping up with the manga and enjoying it but I got side tracked. Furthermore, this series was monthly which can be difficult to keep up with. I would often go months without remembering the manga was released. I stopped at around 90 (out of 113) but have basically forgotten most of it. So to remedy this I just decided to start from the beginning.
Soul Eater is a manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo. This series revolves around three teams of pairs. Each pair consists of a “meister” and a weapon. The teams are Maka and her partner Soul Eater, Black Star and Tsubaki Nakatsukasa , Death the Kid and Liz and Patty Thompson. Each team attempts to accomplish the goal of becoming a death scythe. In order to do this they must kill 99 evil humans and one witch and eat their souls.
Generally I really like this anime/manga. The story is intriguing and I love the characters. The tone of the series features the typical silly to serious that most anime/manga series posses. I also find the art style to be impressive and unique. From what I remember I would recommend this series to anyone who’s looking for a good read.
