Soul Eater Vol. 5
Maka is a scythe meister, working to perfect one particular scythe until its good enough to become Death's Weapon - the weapon used by Shinigami-sama, the spirit of death himself. As if that wasn't unusual enough, her scythe is a demon scythe called Soul Eater which can change from a scythe to a human-looking boy!
Maka's fellow students, like the shadow ninja weapon meister Black Star, aren't much help either. It'll be a miracle if Maka even survives, let alone manages to make her Soul Eater into the Death Scythe!
