Soul Eater is a Japanese supernatural manga series first written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo, and later animated by studio BONES. After the series first creation, most notably the anime adaptation, the series has garnered a large fan following online.
The Soul Eater is set at Death Weapon Meister Academy, abbreviated to the DWMA, located in the town of Death City in Nevada, United States. The school is run by the Shinigami known as Death, as a way of training humans with the ability to transform into weapons, as well as those who wield these weapons, called meisters.The Original Soul Eater series follows meister Maka Albarn and her scythe partner Soul Eater, as well as assassin Black Star and his partner Tsubaki Nakatsukasa, and Death’s son Death the Kid and his pistol partners Liz and Patty Thompson, with their goal being to absorb the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch, which will dramatically increase their power, and allow them to turn into “death scythes”, weapons capable of being used by Death. However, while trying to achieve this goal, they are thrust into a number of different situations, facing certain witches who wish to harness the power of the Kinshin, an evil God, Asuna, and destroy the DWMA using it. On the other hand, the Soul Eater Not series tells the story of a freshman halberd named Tsugumi Harudori, as well as her meister friends Meme Tatane and Anya Hepburn, set in a more peaceful time before the events of the original Soul Eater series, showing their daily lives at the school.
The original Soul Eater manga, written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo, and was first published in Monthly Shōnen Gangan on May 12, 2004, before ending on August 12, 2013 with a total of 25 volumes. This was then followed by an anime adaptation, produced by studio BONES, which originally aired from April 7, 2008 to March 30, 2009, lasting a total of 51 episodes, and following a different story from that of the manga, in a similar fashion to fellow BONES show Fullmetal Alchemist. A spin-off manga, Soul Eater Not, was also published on January 12, 2011, and is still ongoing. This spin-off series also received an anime adaptation, also by studio BONES, and began airing on April 8, 2014, and is set to last 13 episodes.
