"Soul Eater" is a series that has really grown on me, until now I am sorry to see it end. In the beginning, I thought the whole concept was just weird. Two people, usually a male and a female, are paired as a Weapon and a Meister. The Weapon is just that, a human who can transform into a living weapon and be wielded by a Meister. The Meister's main job was to take the souls of 99 humans and 1 witch, in that order, so that their Weapon could be transformed into Death Scythe able to be wielded by the God of Death himself, the Shinigami. Even the character designs were odd, with the snub-nosed imitating a skull-face for the students of the DWMA (Death Weapon Meister Academy). And I thought the pseudo hip-hop characters of Black Star and Soul Eater were just annoying. Good stories and great animation can turn all of that around though, and "Soul Eater" turned into a real favorite.
