Soul Eater is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ōkubo. Set at the “Death Weapon Meister Academy”, the series revolves around three teams consisting of a weapon meister and at least one human weapon. Trying to turn the latter into a “Death Scythe” (and thus fit for use by the academy’s headmaster, Shinigami), they must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch, in that order; otherwise, they will have to start all over again!
Maka Albarn is the meister of the scythe Soul Eater and the main female protagonist. She is a young but dedicated student who takes after her mother, another prodigious meister. However, her relationship with her father Spirit (aka Death Scythe) is incredibly strained due to his constant flirtation with women, which incidentally lead her parents to divorce. As such, Maka is obsessed with turning Soul Eater into a Death Scythe that will surpass her father!
This unknown American cosplayer took up the challenge of brining Maka to life, and armed with that giant scythe, just who are we to argue as to whether or not she got it right!
