Storyline

Set in the Shinigami technical school for weapon meisters, the series revolves around 3 duo's. These pairs are a partnership between a weapon meister and a human weapon. Trying to reach a ranking of "Death Scythe" (and thus fit for use by the Shinigami) they must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and 1 witch. However, forces outside of the Academy make it more challenging of a feat.

This Show Changed my Life
22 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I really have to say, this anime changed me. I love Soul Eater from the bottom of my heart, every character every episode, it doesn't matter.

The characters, oh, the characters! Even if you are one of those people who don't like the plot (I can't believe I've actually met these kinds of people) EVERYONE will find a character they can relate to. They are so diverse, and magnificently developed.

Other than the characters, the show is a riot. There is a joke for everyone in this! Some of the chapters are so eccentric, you can't help but smile when they grace your screen. Even the most serious of characters are humorous at times. I laugh every time I watch it.

Crona. Crona is the best character in anything I've ever watched in my entire life. I sometimes think that I care more about that black blooded child than I do for anyone around me. She has really touched my heart. In the last couple years I tended to be sad and lonely and even a bit devoid of hope. This character, a CHARACTER understood my feelings more than even I think I did. She made me feel better. She has made me optimistic about the future. No one in the real world has ever helped me the way she has. It's not even just Crona. I can see myself in almost every character. They light up my world.

Whenever I'm feeling down, I grab some ice cream and watch Soul Eater. It truly brings joy to my heart. There are plot twists and heart warming moments throughout the whole thing. Each episode will have you on your toes with how it ends. The art style is absolutely wicked. The action is great and each character has their own way of fighting. Overall I just love it. I really do. I think that maybe this show can change other people's lives too.
