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.

If you are looking for something interesting + you are a Shounen fan and by accident read one chapter of soul eater be 100% sure you are going to get hooked!! But……
Our protagonist name‘s is “Evans soul eater”, and the story is not completely about him it’s a story about him and his friends hunting souls and witches.
Be aware that Evans is not your dominant main character it is more like the author just named the Manga because he likes soul eater‘s name which I found a little bit annoying because other characters is as strong as soul sometimes even stronger! read more

After I watched Soul Eater, everyone said, “The manga ending is better.” So I decided to take them up on that and read it.

Why oh why did I finish this manga? Because I’m an idiot?

Maybe.

More likely than not it's because I wanted to reach this “better ending”. While I’ll admit that “bravery” isn’t the best ending to a series, the Soul Eater anime surpasses the manga.

Let’s break down why, shall we?

Characters: 4/10

The characters ranged from bland to erratic with no one I formed any particular attachment too. I liked Crona in the anime, but the character went from interesting to relatively read more
