The English translated version of Soul Eater is serialized in Yen Press' Yen Plus manga anthology magazine starting in July 2008, and the first manga volume was released in October 2009.
A manga series that runs alongside the main series, titled Soul Eater Not!
Around the same time Black☆Star was born, which was thirteen years prior to the beginning of Soul Eater, Maka was born to her father Spirit Albarn (at the age of eighteen) and his wife.
Throughout her childhood, she became displeased with her father's behavior as he cheated on his wife, which led to a strain between the two.
He has a unique love for eating souls that seems to not be shared by many of the other Weapons, drooling quite frequently when his next meal is nearby.
He also seems to be a glutton towards food in general.

Soul was part of wealthy family of musicians known as the Evans and was known for his skill with the piano though he suffered from the assumption he'd never live up to his brother, Wes Evans's skill with music.
After the downfall of the Clown Army and Asura's defeat, Soul was granted the title "Death's Last Weapon" by the new headmaster of Death Weapon Meister Academy after the announcement that DWMA would no longer be collecting witches' souls.
Soul's attitude is laid-back and nonchalant at the start of the series, as he tries to mold himself to his expectations of how someone 'cool' would act.
He is almost the complete opposite of Maka Albarn, being reserved and aloof.
