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.

The manga and the show is just one of the best shonen i ever read. So far their no over superpowered main character each person in the series is useful plus they all have interesting personalities. I feel this show is really above all these typical shonen series becuse the character. Hopefully the storyline develop even more interesting story.

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!!)

These series are quite good. The prologues may be a bit slow but it's recommendable to hold on till the real story starts. The more you advance, the better it gets, so I suppose the mangaka is the type that improves the more he works. The art is nicely done and very well adapted. What I really like is the treatment of the insanity in everyone but I still hope to see how it will develop. And I really like Soul, one of the few characters I've seen out there who knows how to behave in front of the easy-to-get power.

I'm sorry, but I just have to say that this manga is superior to almost everything I'vve ever read in terms of art style, originality and presentation. One thing after another just pieces together so well. And it's an anime so when you finish an episode and find out theres more in the manga you're just bound to read it!

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.

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

At first, I thought the art was a bit weird, but then I got used to it, lol.
This series is definitely wonderful, even though I get bored at some parts. C:

Definitely recommended! ♥

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.

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)

It's unique, funny, and kinda weird stuff. It's plotline, art, humor, reference is above average. But the sinker that makes the manga crap is it's boring attacks and names. Death cannon, Soul (Insert action here) makes the action lame and the characteristics of each skill is bad. Sometimes it's confusing to follow up the story. But hey, it's something anyone should read if they love monsters and fan service <3
I stopped reading this manga 6 months ago, I take back everything I said, this manga is really nothing but a bunch of generic likeables that readers would like(Big explosions, tits, generic references of deities to make the manga seem 'not random'). In the beginning, I thought it would be interesting if it was just Maka and Soul Eater(What kind of name is that?). Plus, there are random names of attacks that the mangaka came up with right off the bat. This is a mainstream disappointment.
