It seems to be depicting a character from Soul Eater. It is the main antagonist, Asura, towards the end of the manga. From the Soul Eater wiki page for Asura:

There are quite certain conditions that need to be met in order for a weapon to become the Death Scythe. As looper mentioned in his answer, they need to collect exactly 99 souls + one witch soul. However, "human souls" is not a quite correct definition for those 99 souls. They are, of course, never encouraged to take innocent humans' souls, but rather 99 ...

I think it would be the safest bet to start reading once they introduced the Spider Witch. It's when their paths started to separate more and more. That is on chapter 23th, Daily Life. You will notice quite a lot similarities from the anime, but that's where they start to go different ways.

Chrona's gender was never revealed in the Japanese Soul Eater manga. There is evidence for both genders but not enough for either to make any conclusive statement. The creator has been asked what Chrona's gender is, but never answered. In Japanese, this isn't hard to do. Most pronouns aren't gender-specific. While Chrona does use boku (僕) to refer to him/...

This is called Uchimizu. People do this to cool the street and as an effect - cools the surrounding area and reduces the amount of dust that flies around. In recent times there has been a push for people to use recycled water instead to reduce waste. The ladle and bucket are traditional, and can be replaced by hoses, buckets or any handy implement. Ladles ...

The goal is "exactly 99 human and a last witch soul". After soul ate Blair's soul, they lost all human souls and needed to restart from the beginning.

No, in the anime of soul eater a death scythe is more of a conceptual goal than a visible state of progression, however, as the anime progresses a character who is an actual death scythe is introduced and it's power is displayed to reinforce that goal. Keep in mind that the anime also ends at the internal investigation arc (chapters 38-40) as the Kishin arc ...

Black Star always address Shinigami-sama as 旦那 (danna), which is more or less the equivalent of "Boss" or "Sir." Black Star is an idiot so he uses the kana (because he doesn't know the kanji) and the wrong kanji when addressing his autograph to Shinigami-sama. Here he means to say 旦那へ, which is essentially "To Boss." For some inexplicable reason, he uses 江 ...

In the anime no, however know that the anime does not follow the manga entirely, as Hikari points out Keep in mind that the anime also ends at the internal investigation arc (chapters 38-40) as the Kishin arc - Arachnophobia vs DWMA - is anime only. is when the anime deviates from the manga as in the manga near the end i havn't read the manga so i don'...

as per the wikia Soul's birth name is Soul Evans Soul "Eater" Evans,[2] known formerly as Soul Eater (ソウルイーター, Souruītā) and born Soul Evans (ソウル·エヴァンス, Sōru· Evansu) is a Demon Weapon who was part of the Evans, a family of famous musicians.[3] the citations for this (citation 2 & citation 3) is listed as Soul Eater Manga: Chapters 113 and 84 ...

In chapter 47 of the manga, it is mentioned that A Shinigami is capable of reproduction, such beings possessing groins. However, Shinigami are also capable of asexual reproduction, as explained in volume 9. Shinigami can asexually reproduce by creating fragments of themselves and create a being. These beings, rather then be a replicate of the parent, ...

Yes. The DWMA is actually a famous school. In soul eater not, when Tsugumi finds out that she is weapon and decides to go to the DWMA, all her friends are astounded that their friend can turn into a weapon and will be going to "the super elite DWMA". DWMA, of course, has secrets and knowledge which they keep from the general public.

The Weapon ability in Soul Eater is basically determined at birth. You either can transform into a weapon or you can't. There's no confusion about that. But the Meisters are a bit different. To be a Meister basically means to be able to perform well in pair with a Weapon. Not everybody can do that, but even among the Meisters, not all of them can perform ...

You don't need any significant knowledge of the plot of Soul Eater to begin reading Soul Eater Not!. It is set in the same world, but Soul Eater Not! takes place chronologically before the beginning of the Soul Eater manga and mostly focuses on characters who are not important for the main plot. If you're familiar with the setting of Soul Eater (which should ...

Ok, it took me some time to find it. You are referring to this: Knowing what kind of person Black☆Star is, I wouldn't take his statement neither too seriously nor too literally. It is known that it is possible to overcome madness if one has bravity and a strong heart. Black☆Star definitely has those. In fact, it is shown in the Baba Yaga's Castle mini-...

I would assume the basis mangaka's use for witch incantations and the like would come from Mantras. sometimes they are called Arias or incantations but the basic principle is that the words that make them up hold value either to the actual spell or to the user. In Soul Eater the witches use Arias which flow from their themes. For Blair, even though she's "a ...

Well, the anime very greatly deviates from the manga. In fact, only less than the first half of the anime follows the manga. The rest is completely different. Considering the events of the manga: (SPOILERS)

Yes Kidd, Maka and Soul appear in Soul Eater Not! and they interact with the students of the NOT class, for example Maka in the first episode: Whilst struggling to climb the large amount of steps leading up to the DWMA, Tsugumi is helped out by one of the students, Maka Albarn, who encourages her to reach the top […] Quote from Wikipedia There are ...

I read through the first volume again, and it's quite clear that Death believes this to be a witch. Take for instance, the following page: Here Death makes several references to Blair as being a witch. He makes no mention that contradicts this belief. In fact, I cannot find anywhere in the manga where Death states there's something odd about Blair, so it ...

From what I remember, the 99 souls were not actually confiscated. Because the 100th soul he ate was a cat's, he had to repeat the whole process of hunting 99 red souls again. Think of this as a "soul-meter", the goal is to fill it up to 100 (99 being red souls and a soul of a witch). Initially, he had 99 souls already eaten, and he had one more soul to go. ...

Yes, it is related to the real world. There's no map ever shown, but Death City is a fictional city set in Nevada, USA. Shibusen is an academy located in the fictional Death City, of Nevada where Meisters and Weapons attend. Source: Soul Eater wiki: Shibusen Also, it's not listed, but I'm quite sure (judging by appearance) that Deng Dinga is from Africa,...

What are the basic and upgraded Weapons called? I'll start with this since i'll use these terms in my answers, in the Anime, weapons like Soul and Tsubaki are known as Death Weapons. After they collect the 100 souls they are refereed to as Death Scythes like Spirit and Justin, most likely a reference to how Lord Death is the Grim Reaper and in most works ...

The Meisters who made their Weapons into Death Scythes are then ready to take on evil with their Meister abilities like Stein. They probably become a backup plan when Satan-sama or Shinigami-sama aren't available or incapable of using the Death Scythe. I can't understand why there are so many Death Scythes who are used by the Shinigami only. There has to be ...

In the anime, Maka's mom is referenced many times by Maka, who says that she occasionally gets postcards from places her mother has been to. Therefore, I'm assuming that after a Meister makes a Death Scythe, they take on a job like any other person would, or maybe some special mission from Lord Death himself. After all, after the Weapons become Scythes, they ...

The so called weapons are a artificial race, created due to inhumane human/witch experimentation. We do not know how the actual physical transformation happens. Nor how the experimentation ultimatetly led to this race These experiments known to create these weapons was originally discovered by Eibon and Death, whilst trying to find a way to create peace ...

Also, as for the humanoid part, it is implied by Death the Kid that his dad has a face. He says early on in the series that he "rarely takes off his mask." This is supported by the fact that Kid has his own Death mask and cloak that he wears on the way to retrieve Eibon's magic tool from the eternally-running train in the desert. When he wears them he ...

"Who exactly is able to become a Kishin?" It has been stated in both the anime and the manga that humans cannot consume souls, only demon weapons. Yet Don Al Capone, a human, was seen eating human souls in the anime. The result of his soul consumption turned him into a Kishin egg, the first step in becoming a Kishin (to my understanding, first you become a ...
