In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!
Fourteen years ago, the witches of the world waged war against humans and due to their immense power, many countries fell under their control. In order to combat this threat, the unharmed nations formed an organisation consisting of humans with special abilities known as the "Witch Hunters". Tasha Gospel is one such witch hunter who, under the codename Magic Bullet Marksman travels the land with his pumpkin-faced supporter, Halloween, taking on missions to defeat witches and earn his income. However, what Tasha really aims for is to locate his sister, Aria, who has been corrupted by the power of a magical hat and is now known as the Red Witch. But will he be able to take back his sister from the ones who stole her in the first place, and can he do it before the curse Aria cast several years ago kills him?
