* Based on a shounen manga by Ookubo Atsushi serialised in Shounen Gangan.
Set in the Shinigami technical school for weapon technicians, the series revolves around three pairs of two characters with each having a weapon technician and a human weapon. They try to make the latter a "Death Scythe" and thus fit for use by the Shinigami. They must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch to do this.
[i]Note: There were two versions of Soul Eater. The first was a normal version which aired on Mondays and the second was a "Late Show" version which aired on Thursday nights. The "Late Show" version had some extra scenes added during eye-catches and before the next episode preview but the main part of the show didn`t have any differences from the normal version.
The series was rebroadcast on TV Tokyo under the title Soul Eater: Repeat Show (ソウルイーター リピートショー) from September 30, 2010, featuring new opening and closing themes.[/i]
