Soul Eater (ソウルイーター Sōru Ītā?) is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo. 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.[1]


In 2011, Soul Eater was considered ineligible from Yuletide because it was considered too large for it.[2]

The two largest Soul Eater ships are Soul/Maka and Black*Star/Tsubaki

The Soul Eater fandom has two major writing events each year: Resbang (Resonance Bang) and Reverb (Reverse Resonance Bang). They are both a form of a Big Bang writing event. They are both hosted by the Grigori Wings Forums.
