From Yen Press:

Maka is a weapon meister, determined to turn her partner, a living scythe named Soul Eater, into a powerful death scythe — the ultimate weapon of Death himself! Charged with the task of collecting and devouring the tainted souls of ninety-nine humans and one witch, Maka and her fellow meisters strive to master their weapons as they face off against the bizarre and dangerous minions of the underworld. But the meisters’ own personal quirks may prove a bigger obstacle than any sultry enchantress!

I actually really like it, because its so funny.
I'm fond of the art, and the only thing I dislike about it
is the all the fan service (middle of kick-ass battle, they suddenly have a page with the cat-witch in a tub. >.o Has nothing to do with it...)
The plot is classic shounen, but I don't mind. I haven't read enough anyhow(shounen). I suggest people give it a try. You can watch the anime too, its following the same storyline so far (and the fights look so much cooler!!)

Perfect series indeed. The artwork is superb, It certainly does not loose quality when intense fights are taking place. Character development can be seen since chapter 01, and most important of all (in my opinion) is that every arc is important and develops every character and their relationship with each other . Certainly a must read.
Thanks to the author/artist and ofcourse, every group/person that made this possible.

Definitely unique on it's own way.
Original artwork, especially on the scenery.
The story is the classic shounen-like fighting manga, but the mixture of some crazy elements and the uniqueness of the characters make it far more interesting.Only thing that bothered me is that after chapter 61
Spoiler (highlight to view)
what's with the sudden over buff of the kids?They are like they can fight with Stein on equal terms!Sure, Soul became a death scythe,Black Star mastered the sword,Kid awoke the lines,the side characters acquired battle experience, but for example it took Naruto 3 years to power up and they powered up in a few days!

Like everyone else says the art is great (reminds me of tim burton in a way) and the plot was a little slow at first but sped up and caught me and kept me reading.
also the fan servoce with Blair is the best!

also the fan service is awesome XD

I thought art is pretty weird at first, but later I realized how well it works with the story. Plot is very good for a shounen manga, and humor is perfect. There's enough fanservice, but not annoyingly much. However, I must say that characters are what makes Soul Eater this good. They are all likable, strong and very much not-perfect, and that's what makes them interesting.
What's most amazing is well-mixed amount of hilarious and touching/emotional moments - never going into irritating extremes like many other manga.

I am with the reviews below me. It started out relatively well for a shonen action manga and became more interesting and unique as it went along but the last two yeas at least have been just tedious and pointless. No more plot or characterization just regurgitation and standstill. Hope it gets good again.
And the spinoff is sadly really bad.
Update: And now the series is dead and the ending is the typical unconclusive shonen mess. What a letdown but i still like it enough overall.

How disappointing, Soul Eater goes to shit about 2/3 of the way through, not even the internet defintion of shit (i.e. it did something I dislike) its just the overall quality drops and it feels entirely flat and tedious. Pity, suppose I'll read on anyway.

Whew! I watched the 1st episode of the anime and it already pawned me!! It's freaking cool! The fight scenes are superb to the maximum level! Although the ambiance is a little disturbing since it's my first time to stumble such art style, it's really worth it. The manga is also a great work, although it needs a little bit of cleaning from the rough inking. Hell, so far, this is the best among the NEW anime categories out there. It's really worth watching and reading

The action is quite enjoyable but the kiddy fanservice is however bothersome.
If you managed to do go past it,you'll enjoy reading the series for its actions scenes.
