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!

my first thought about the art was...."ick". and although it's really easy to predict what's going to happen, after about two chapters I thought this manga was okay. so i'll also try to watch the anime.

EDIT (10/29/08): after about 8 months of reading this I am seriously embarrased about this comment xD
(mostly because I love SE now)

There's plot under the fluff, but not worth finding.

It's one of those mangas I can't really get excited about, and honestly, don't really like, but read compulsively anyway... Sort of like Inuyasha. At least for this manga there is a layer of good plot somewhere in there... It's just that in this case it's covered in layers of annoying characters.

The assassin who wants to show off, the powerful prince who has OCD and demands that everything be neat and symmetrical, the inconsistent moral system (it's okay to slaughter witches en masse and take their souls, unless of course that witch gets a bit of page-time, in which case they deserve infinite mercy), and the generally excessively lighthearted attitude all annoy me a bit, and yet, I find myself drawn in...

What in the world is with all these 10 reviews? I don't understand how someone can say this is the perfect manga with zero room for improvement and that it can do no wrong. Seems to be a fad lately with many reviewers, even worse than before.

Anyways, as Molenir said, there isn't much to this series. I have tried following it, and tried reading it several times because people keep recommending it to me, but now I am starting to resent those friends who tell me to check it out. This series had a lot to work for, it had an interesting concept, characters that had boundless opportunities and unique qualities.. and then it shoved all that aside, picked up the latest Naruto and Bleach, and decided to copy as best they could. Completely halting any chance this series seemed to have had for a future.

There's no glue holding it together. It's just a battle manga. I almost reached the end of volume 1 before just giving up out of sheer boredom, in the middle of a battle no less.

The art style kinda sucks in that it's all over the place. And I don't see where this "polish" is that others commented about.

Heck, even the ecchi portions weren't very interesting.

So for being mediocre, I gave it a mediocre rating. Enjoy.
