About Soul Eater

Soul Eater was written by Atsushi Ohkubo, a manga artist also known for Fire Force and his character designs in video games such as Bravely Default. Set at the Death Weapon Meister Academy — a school located in the fictional “Death City” in Nevada, United States — the plot follows the adventures of the meisters and their weapon partners. 

The original manga series and its preceding one-shots were all published by Square Enix. A 51-episode-long anime adaptation was later produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory and TV Tokyo. The success of Soul Eater has seen the anime getting licensed in North America by Funimation. There have also been three separate action-adventure video games.
