Soul Eater is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Okubo. Set at the 'Death Weapon Meister Academy', the series revolves around three teams consisting of a weapon meister and (at least one) human weapon. Trying to make the latter a 'death scythe' and thus fit for use by the academy's headmaster Shinigami, the personification of death, they must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch, in that order; otherwise, they will have to start all over again. The manga is published by Square Enix and was first released as three separate one-shots serialized in two Gangan Powered special editions and one Gangan Wing issue between June 24 and November 26, 2003.
