I fell in love with this manga from the very first chapter I read.The drawing style,the story,the characters and pretty much everything else make the reader not wanting the pages to come to an end.There's almost everything someone might ask from this gender of manga and probably even more.A great story with amazing action and sudden blasts of humor when one least expects it make it worth reading.

The characters all have their own quirks that make each one of them unique in their own weird ways which adds even more to the whole package :P

I undoubtly recommend it for everyone that likes to get a read more

I first started reading Soul Eater because my friend recommended it to me, saying it's "the lovechild of Bleach and Naruto." Which is pretty true, this manga is overall very very epic.

I think art is not as pretty as some of my favorite series (ie. Hikaru no Go) but it's not horrible and it's actually quite likeable. The style changes very slightly while in a different dimension and reflects some of the actions in the plot which I found very awesome.

I can't recommend this manga enough, the only slight downside I can think of is that the art style changes very slightly. The later volumes have absolutely astounding art, incredibly detailed and intricate. The characters are really likeable and develop a lot over the story. One thing I found really cool is the little details that become really important later on, it makes the story feel well thought out and crafted. Another thing I really enjoyed is how this manga never takes it self too seriously right down to the last chapter, it manages to be deep and engaging while also being light hearted read more

Man, it's not easy to make something that appeals to everyone. Often you encounter the issue of how to appeal to people who want something more mature, people who want something simple, people who want something complex and people who want something fun.

It's not easy to balance all that, and many manga have tried and failed miserably at doing so. This comes as no real surprise, since people wouldn't really want to read something that is unsure of what it it is. People want to read something, with a distinct purpose and a clear end result.

This is where the secret behind Soul Eater being so read more
