“What’s the point of worrying about the past? A real start keeps moving forward”
1. When Black☆Star writes an autograph, he writes his name in full caps and uses the ‘A’ in ‘BLACK’ to draw the top point of the star symbol instead of writing ‘STAR’ out. To then make the bottom left points of the star he draws it out from the ‘R’
2. Black☆Star was taken into the DWMA as a baby (and cared for by Sid) on the same day that Maka was born
3. Black☆Star is considered to be based upon the character Shotaro from B Ichi (another series written by Atshushi Ohkubo, who created Soul Eater). Black☆Star has quite a similar personality to B Ichi, they both have spiked hair and they both have the same favourite superhero (Charisma Justice)
4. Black☆Star is the only character in the anime to be voiced by a woman – in both Japanese and English
5. When referring to himself, Black☆Star likes to uses the honorific 俺様 (‘ore-sama’) which translates to ‘the great me’
6. Ohkubo has officially announced that Black☆Star is actually stronger than Death the Kid by the end of the series
“I hate, hate, hate everyone… but that’s alright. I can use my screams to blow them all away. I bet dead people are a lot easier to get along with”
One of Crona’s hobbies is writing morbid poetry
In Chapter 87, it’s revealed that Crona’s favourite food is pasta
Crona’s sex is unknown. The Soul Eater creator Atushi Okubo has stated that they do not know Crona’s sex, which is why in the Japanese manga text Crona is referred to with non-gender specific pronouns. However, Funimation and Yen Press decided to use male pronouns in the English translation of the anime and manga. This is because they didn’t want to use ‘it’ as they felt it would be too demeaning
The first three characters of the katakana that make up Ragnarok’s name actually spell ‘crona’
Black Sword is actually a Scandinavian broadsword, which is more commonly known as a Viking sword. In norse mythology, it’s interesting to then note that Ragnarok is actually the name given to a series of future events where it’s believed that there will be a great battle which will result in the death of a number of major Norse gods such as Odin, Thor and Loki. There will also be natural disasters that cause the world to be submerged under water
Crona’s English voice actor, Maxey Whitehead, has said that her favourite role so far in her career has been Crona
Crona’s main catchphrase is, “I don’t know how to deal with…” They use another phrase though when they’re in their maddened state, which is when they tell their opponent that their blood is black
Moblit’s intelligent, responsible and clearly adaptable and patient enough to have become Hanje’s second-in-command (his contract probably states that the majority of his job is ensuring that Hange stays out of trouble). The guy is shown to be quite worried about Hange’s antics but handles everything very well, so he can clearly handle high amounts stress. However, he’s also shown to have a bit of a dangerous side as he’s helped Hange to torture and has even injured another person before without so much as blinking.
He’s a sore loser, a crybaby and spoiled. He’s annoying as all hell, dramatic and arrogant. I love it.
Give the boy his own show goddamnit! I want stalking, I want blackmail and I want a some excitement while he reaches for his staking dreams!
I love him. I just want to see more of him.
Matsuda is my precious little baby. I’d definitely watch his adventures around the city and in the office and his take on helping solve the Kira case. He’d have a very different opinion on everything from the other characters in the Death Note series so I think it’d be interesting to watch.
We know so little about Kisara. What happened to her while she was a teenager? Where’s she been living? She’s probably travelled a bit and she’s definitely has been through a lot. Give me her story please!
A day in the life of Akamaru? Yes! I’m here for it!
You can’t deny that Kamaji is an interesting character. He’s stuck down in the boiler room all day, but seems like the kind of guy who wouldn’t mind getting up to some mischief too… Or at least that he would get to witness a lot of drama unfold or stumble across other people’s secrets while he works!
I love Soul’s character development throughout the series and getting to see him mature. Plus he can play the piano and I love his outfit.
Spirit is a very passionate and compassionate character. And I’m not entirely sure why, but for some reason I tend to find his antics rather entertaining too?
Tsubaki is mature, level-headed and caring. Essentially, I tend to end up thinking of her as the ‘mum’ of the group and wanting her to know how great of a personality she has.
She’s such a gentle, protective and caring soul. Marie’s also petty and has no sense of direction (like me).
Clay’s so clumsy and adorable. He’s helpful, nervous, doesn’t think before he speaks and is enthusiastic. Though he does usually manage to stay calm and collected during battle. I love Clay’s weapon form too.
Patty and Liz
I’m sorry, but I just had to put these two together. They’re both interesting characters individually so I wanted to put them both in this list but when together they prove to be quite the entertaining duo. I’m so glad they’re Death the Kid’s demon weapons.
I also decided to have my 2nd quote for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes tag to be one from Soul Eater! Again, thank-you to Chizurue for tagging me for this! Here’s the quote:

Originally the series’ creator, Atushi, had only planned for Soul Eater to be a set of three separate one-shots. However, Atushi left a giant pothole in the one-shots and they were popular enough to then be made into a full series
Death the Kid has tried to dye his hair before (because he wanted to make himself completely symmetrical) but unfortunately his lines of Sanzu kept coming back. According to Atushi, colour won’t stick in Kid’s hair because of his shinigami blood – meaning that the chemicals are rejected by his body
Maka’s name is an anagram for the world ‘kama’ – which is the Japanese word for ‘scythe’
Stein is said to the be strongest meister to graduate from the DWMA
Soul Eater Not! revealed that the DWMA is located in Las Vegas, America
The number to call Lord Death is 42 42 564. In Japanese this number is pronounced as ‘shini shine koroshi’ and translates to ‘death death kill’
Atushi has confirmed that Crona’s gender is unknown, despite Crona being referred to as ‘he’ in the anime
Black Star was taken into the DWMA on the same day that Maka was born
There are quite a few character references in the series – including Jason from Friday the 13th, Jack the Ripper and Al Capone (who was also known as Scarface). These references also includes characters such as Blair, whose name is a reference to the Blair Witch Project, and Stein, who is based upon a combination of Victor Frankenstein and his monster from the 1818 novel
In episode 3, when Death the Kid summons Lord Death, the hand signals that Kid uses are sign language for ‘I love you’
