|Soul Eater is set at Death Weapon Meister Academy (死神武器職人専門学校 Shinigami Buki Shokunin Senmon Gakkō)—"DWMA" (死武専 Shibusen) for short—located in the fictional Death City in Nevada, United States. The school is run by Shinigami, also known as Death, as a training facility for humans with the ability to transform into weapons, as well as the wielders of those weapons, called meisters (職人 shokunin). Attending this school are meister Maka Albarn and her scythe partner Soul Eater; assassin Black Star and his partner Tsubaki Nakatsukasa, who can turn into a variety of different weapons such as a kusarigama, shuriken, and ninjatō; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his pistol partners Liz and Patty Thompson. The goal of the school's meister students is to have their weapons defeat and absorb the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch, which will dramatically increase the power of the given weapon and turn them into "death scythes", weapons capable of being used by Shinigami.
Shortly after the start of Soul Eater, Maka and Soul Eater face off against the witch Medusa, who forces her child Crona, meister of the demon sword Ragnarok, to collect non-evil human souls and transform into a kishin (鬼神), an evil demon god. Medusa and her cohorts attack DWMA with the intention of reviving Asura, the first kishin who nearly plunged the entire world into madness before being sealed beneath DWMA by Shinigami. Despite the combined efforts of Maka, Black Star, and Death the Kid, Medusa's group successfully revives Asura, who leaves to spread chaos around the world after a brief battle with Shinigami. However, Medusa is seemingly killed by the meister and DWMA teacher Franken Stein in the process, while Crona surrenders to the DWMA and goes on to enroll there and befriend Maka.
As a result of Asura's spreading madness, Medusa's older sister Arachne comes out of hiding after 800 years. Arachne reforms her organization Arachnophobia, which poses itself as a serious threat to DWMA. Shinigami calls in death scythes from around the world to aid in the fight against Arachnophobia. During this time, Medusa reappears with her soul in the body of a young girl, and forms a truce with DWMA so they can annihilate the threat of Arachnophobia together. The DWMA students and Medusa's entourage infiltrate Arachnophobia's headquarters where Maka defeats Arachne, only for Medusa to betray DWMA, possess Arachne's body, and brainwash Crona into rejoining her. Meanwhile, Death the Kid is captured by Noah, an artificial construct created from the Book of Eibon's Tables of Contents. Following this, Maka finally succeeds in turning Soul Eater into a death scythe, and the duo become part of the newly formed meister unit Spartoi along with their friends, who rescue Death the Kid and defeat Noah (Greed), though a new Noah (Wrath) is created by the arcane power of the Book of Eibon thanks to its Tables of Contents.
While DWMA searches for Asura's whereabouts, Crona resurfaces in a city in Russia, destroying it and killing the death scythe stationed there, and then kills Medusa and goes completely insane. Maka is ordered by Shinigami to hunt and kill Crona, and inadvertently discovering Asura's presence on the moon during her search. A four-way battle between DWMA, Asura with his Clown armies, the Book of Eibon with Noah (Wrath), and Crona ensues on the Moon's surface.

Mitsugu Mouryou’s Anime Review
Soul Eater, a long anticipated series that proves anticipation makes things seem so much better than they really are. Now don’t start hatin’ me, Soul Eater wasn’t that bad… it had its moments.
The plot is really where Soul Eater shines, it was better written than it looked. The names were rather contrite, the near ending(ep 48+) was just overflowing with way to many hokey plot hole fillers, but my biggest gripe would be weapon/ability development/evolution… the old cliché in anime: ‘...when the chips are down and things look grim, all a hero needs to do is bear down, clench their teeth, tighten their buttocks, and viola! They pull out a new ability/power up out of their butt, allowing them to crush a vastly superior foe in one blow.’ It happens way too much.
Voice acting isn’t bad at all. The cast has many well known names in both the EN dub, and original JP.
Character design: Here’s where the series mostly went to pot. Most of the characters look like they were drawn as quick sketch on a cocktail napkin, like: Black Star; Soul; Death; and most notably Excalibur, who looks like a quick sketch form a New Yorker comic. All of it just strikes me as very quick and cheesy.
Character development is far better than the character design. All of the students at the Death Meister Weapons Academy have their own histories, and personality quirks. Some you’ll love, others will grow on you, but none are boring.
In conclusion Soul Eater is far better written than drawn. I did enjoy it, until the end. Not very climatic of a conclusion, in fact it was very Power Rangery… all the characters joining together for one final attack. Of course this is after the academy went for a walk. Those 2 mayor blemishes are why Soul Eater doesn’t rate higher than a 3.8, but by no means should that dissuade you form viewing it. In my opinion it makes for decent background noise while gaming or fiddling about online. Soul Eater contains some blood and moderate to medium violence with no nudity or foul language. Warning: It will draw you in.
