Meister Maka Albarn and her weapon partner Soul Eater have collected 99 kishin souls, souls of weapon meisters and death scythes who have eaten human souls, causing their souls to become corrupt and turn into what they call kishin, and only need the soul of a witch to turn Soul into a death scythe. The two seek out the witch Blair, who frequently gets the better of them and tries to seduce Soul. During a battle, Soul tricks Blair into thinking he wants to abandon Maka and become her weapon, allowing Maka to take her soul.

Maka and Soul are the only ones left standing against Asura. Believing that Maka's Genie Hunter is the only one that can combat against Asura, her strength and determination upgrades her ultimate attack to Kishin Hunter, but Asura easily shatters the attack and regenerates from it, and proceeds to issue his own attacks, one of which is blocked by Soul and for which Maka takes the full hit to protect Soul's unconscious body. As Asura believes Maka is finally defeated, her weapon blood awakens and she unconsciously continues attacking, but Asura still easily takes her down and forces her weapon blood to concede by waking her up with pain. Meanwhile, Crona tells everyone that Maka's true strength comes from her heart and not a technique, and Lord Death recovers. As Asura tells Maka that all hope for her is lost, she and the others, who recover from their unconscious state, reply that true strength comes from bravery. Asura, who doesn't understand what bravery is, then begins succumbing to fear. Afraid, Asura weakly tries to deny Maka's advances, but his attempts are futile when she punches him straight to the face. Realizing that bravery is just like madness, Asura explodes, cleansing the world of his madness. However, Kid fears the rebirth of another kishin. Maka remains confident, as everyone has bravery in their hearts.
