The cover of the first volume of the Soul Eater manga released by Gangan Comics on June 22, 2004 in Japan

Soul Eater is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Atsushi Okubo.[1] The series follows the adventures of three students at a school called the Death Weapon Meister Academy (or DWMA for short), known as meisters, who use demon weapon companions with human and weapon forms. These meisters, Maka Albarn, Black Star, and Death the Kid, seek to turn their weapons, Soul Eater, Tsubaki, and the Thompson sisters respectively, into "death scythes" for Lord Death, the Grim Reaper and head of the DWMA, by having their weapons consume the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch.[2]

The manga initially began as three separate one-shots serialized between June 24, 2003 and November 26, 2003 in two manga magazines published by Square Enix. The first one-shot was published in the summer 2003 special edition of Gangan Powered,[3] the second following in the autumn 2003 special edition of the same magazine,[4] and the third serialized in Gangan Wing. The manga started regular serialization in Square Enix's Monthly Shōnen Gangan magazine on May 12, 2004. The first tankōbon was released by Square Enix under their Gangan Comics imprint on June 22, 2004 in Japan; as of December 12, 2013, 25 volumes have been released.[5]

The series is published in English by Yen Press, and is serialized in Yen Press' Yen Plus manga anthology magazine. The first issue of Yen Plus was released on July 29, 2008.[6] An anime adaptation of the manga, produced by Bones and Aniplex, aired on TV Tokyo between April 7, 2008 and March 30, 2009 and contained 51 episodes.[7][8]

To make up for the souls they have failed to collect, Maka, Soul, Black Star, and Tsubaki take a remedial class where they fight an undead DWMA teacher, Sid Barrett.

Meanwhile, Crona begins to adapt well to life at DWMA, but is confronted by Medusa, who asks Crona to spy on DWMA. Crona places an item into Marie, Stein's new partner, to increase Stein's insanity. To counter the threat from Arachnophobia, Stein trains Maka, Black Star, and Kid in duel arts, a form of combat in which the three synchronize their souls to fight better in tandem. Although Maka and Black Star are initially incompatible, they overcome their differences for the sake of their team. Shinigami dispatches DWMA's forces to find "Brew", one of the most powerful demon tools created by Eibon. While the battle rages on the island where Brew is located, Maka, Black Star, and Kid attempt to find Brew, and encounter Mosquito, one of Arachne's foremost servants.

Fearing that there is a traitor at DWMA, Shinigami summons Joe Buttataki to investigate. Joe suspects that Stein, who has been experiencing fits of madness due to Asura's awakening, is the traitor. Meanwhile, Maka accidentally overhears Crona talking with Eruka, and she realizes that Crona is a spy.

He finds her manipulated by a machine that lowers morality, and she stabs him, claiming her allegiance is to Arachnophobia.

At DWMA, Soul finds that dozens of other students are requesting him to become their partner now that he is a death scythe. Maka tries to pay the matter no mind until she notices a single girl who frequently stares at them from afar. Shinigami organizes a plan to rescue Kid from the Book of Eibon with the help of witches Kim, Risa, Arisa, and Eruka, who open a portal into the book for the members of Spartoí to enter. The group begins navigating the book's seven chapters thanks to the Index's help, each based on the seven deadly sins, starting with the first chapter "Lust", where the group members switch genders. Meanwhile, deep within the book, Kid encounters a black amorphous creature referring to itself as one of the "Great Old Ones", which consumes him and begins to slowly drive him to madness.

The Spatoi keep their way through the Book of Eibon looking for Kid who was consumed in Madness by the Great Old One.

After passing by the Lust and Gluttony chapters, Maka and Soul, who find their own gender back, are separated from the Spartoi and are trapped first in the Envy chapter, where the previous staring girl is torturing Maka's mind making her hesitating about Soul's partnership, and the Sloth chapter where they have to fight Giriko while the rest were in the Wrath and Pride chapters facing an expected boring "guest". Thinking Maka could defeat Giriko with the music of Soul's piano, he comes back in a new female body form thanks to the power of BREW. Meanwhile in the Greed chapter, the Spartoi find back their gender except for Tsubaki who's the last one, and Black Star finds himself face to face with Kid.

This is the reunion's time between Shinigami and Kid, and also the time for another step in the Index's plan. Kid confesses to his father that the Noah he fought wasn't really human at all because he just had the personification of Greed. The Index wants to teach through the power of knowledge, but according to Shinigami, this power can create another form of madness, and so the Index creates another Noah with the personification of Wrath. Meanwhile, Maka and Soul are called in Moscow, Crona has been found murdering Tsar Pushka, the Death Scythe in charge of Eastern Europe, and his partner with the power of mad blood. Feeling the power of madness, Soul's wound opens up, awakes his true power and lose his own reason against Maka.

Meanwhile, Justin is found by Tezca and seems to have found out where the Kishin is hidden.

Kid is going back to the Lost Island where he finds Eibon who seemed to be the real one since the beginning. Eibon is making Kid doubtful about Shinigami because he thinks that his own ideas of Order can be the source of madness. Back to the DWMA after a sky-whaling mission, the Spartoi squad learns that Crona's death penalty has been added to Shinigami's list and nothing can be reversed. Maka uses her own Soul Perception Ability combined with Soul's Death Scythe Power to find Crona through the world. And instead of looking for Crona, her ability leaded her to the source of madness, the Kishin is hidden on the moon. The DWMA, with the Death Scythes remaining, Death the Kid, and two of the NOT class, is preparing to its most important mission: landing on the moon and get rid of the Kishin where Justin and his army of Clowns are waiting for them, while the Spartoi is going to Italy to find Crona at the place where Maka met him for the first time. The war on the moon begins and everything is turning into a battlefield.
