Soul Eater, v 1-3 by Atsushi Ohkubo
v.1 - 205 pages
v.2 - 192 pages
v.3 - 187 pages
I picked up this manga after watching the anime. I was curious to see how closely the manga followed the anime. The first three volumes are followed exactly from what I can tell.
Soul Eater tells the story of meisters that train weapons to become death scythes for the death god. The weapons are in human form when not being wielded in battle. Soul Eater focuses on three meisters -- Maka, Death Star, and Death the Kid -- who attend the Death Weapon Meister Academy (DWMA). The first volume sets up the characters with their own prologue stories. The books then get into a story arc with a witch that is trying to create a "kishin" who eats good souls.
I enjoyed the anime and will probably continue to read the manga.
