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!

Not sure why

Im almost not sure why i hated this manage so much. It has everything i usualy enjoy in a manga. Decient art, interesting idea, nice fight scens...but yet i still hate it so. Save for Kidd i detest every single character in this managa. Espically the cat demon whos sole purpose is to have oversized boobs. Im not one to put down fan service but it just felt waaaay to forced. Every character has way too extream of a personality...too self absorbed, too shy, too nuts, too easy going, too manwhoreish, the list goes on. There isnt a well balenced character is this manga that anyone can relate too save maybe Soul and his partner. Molenir worded it nicely, it looks nice but theres nothing under the shiney exterior. Awsome idea/art but thats it. I forced myself to read this manga because i couldnt understand why i didnt enjoy it, but it is without a doubt this is the manga i hate the most. I make the guess that the characters ruin this manga for me. If you can overlook them, or heck enjoy them, then youd probally love this manga. Personally i cant stand it and gave it up.

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.
