one question though, in either the manga or anime, is it explained how people turn into weapons? are they humans, some sort of subclass of humans, magic weapons that turn into humans, I never heard of one explanation.
It's a complicated thing, though the manga goes some way to explaining it. Either Arachne or Medusa I believe were scientists within the witch cultures. They killed witches and merged their souls with human ones, creating humans full of magic, allowing them to transform into weaponry. Because it's the soul that allows the transformation a weapon requires a suitable weapon technician, hence the soul resonance and everything. A Weapon becomes a death-scythe when it absorbs a witch's soul because the absorbed soul completes the magic within them, while the 99 Kishin souls are worthless when it comes to that, more of a test set by Shinigami to make sure a weapon is worthy by the time they consume a witch's soul.
Awesome! I found Black Star to be rather annoying when Soul Eater started, but he grew on me when he got some development and became badass for real and not just in his head.XD Could you please draw Crona? He/She might be my favourite character in Soul Eater, and I would love to see him/her in your style.
ever read the whole manga? the Anime skipped most of the most epic parts... like Soul becoming a death-scythe and where the battle with Asura actually took place. And BlackStar... words cannot explain his power in the last twenty chapters.
Of course I have read the whole manga. In many ways it's much better than the anime, though I'm unshure how I feel about the final chapter. But yeah, Black Star kicks all kinds of ass there, and everyone is in general even more badass.
