At the Death Weapon Meister Academy, humans known as Meisters study. Each Meister have their own partner, which is a weapon capable of taking on a human form. The story follows three of these Meisters and their Weapon. They are Maka Alban and her weapon Soul Eater, Black Star and his weapon Tsubaki, and Death the Kid and his weapons Patricia and Elizabeth Thompson. They attend school, do homework, fight evil souls, and most important, they try to help their weapons reach Death Scythe status, in which they are eligible for use by the leader of all the Meisters and Weapons, Death(The Grim Reaper) himself.

This show really helped kick off a much larger interest in anime for myself than I had before. The biggest detractor is when it evidently splits from the manga (the series was unfinished at the time) and leads to an abrupt and somewhat unsatisfying ending, but overall remains one of my favorites. The characters are a lot of fun, and the setting itself with how the world works is quite unique. A lot of the visual settings are interesting with some excellent animation and fight scenes. I also enjoyed the themes involved and explored (friendship, forgiveness, acceptance, willpower, etc.). I highly recommend it!
