Like with volume 4 I finished this volume pretty fast and man things are heating up! Medusa and her gang have pretty much got the DWMA on lockdown leaving everything up to Stein, Death scythe, Maka, Soul, Kid, Black star, Liz + Patty, and Tsubaki!

I'm a little disappointed with the lack of comedy in this volume, though I can understand why with all the action and intensity going on. I do not like the idea of Maka and Soul giving into the black blood or the "ogre" inside their minds, and I certai

I am liking these battles. They are very intense, and I am just staring at the page hoping something will not go wrong. This has me on the edge of my seat. No more boring battles! This is the good stuff. Take down those witches! And please fight the black blood Maka. I do not want to see you become like Chrona.

Reading Soul Eater, I've always found that some volumes work better on screen as animation and some volumes work better as their original manga counterparts. A series like this one needs the colorful vibrancy of its anime adaptation to make a lot of its scenes excel, but sometimes Ohkubo creates a collection of chapters that are so exciting and so emotionally enthralling that the anime has a hard time capturing the same feelings as in the source material.

May I just say how much the art style has grown from the very first volume of this manga? Where it was clumsy and almost annoying at first, it has evolved to being dynamic and stylized and endearing.

This is the first volume where I genuinely liked every chapter in it. This volume contains a complete mini-arc that is essential to the plot of the overall story, yet could hold its own if it had to be read in isolation. More of the side characters are starting to be fleshed out, the character relat

The end of this volume begins one of my favorite arcs in the series. Crona is one of those characters that I immediately related to. Who hasn't at one time or another allowed their insecurities to negatively influence their actions? In his case, his insecurities literally beat him up where for most of us it's just a metaphorical beating.

I also love how Maka and Soul interact with each other in this volume - the sense of connection and loyalty the two have for each other. One of the better insta

Adoravo questo manga ed è un peccato che abbia smesso con questa serie (ho perso totalmente interesse anni fa dopo aver fatto un periodo in cui compravo solo quelli).

Woah, the ending was just like, woah. Kind of more freaky manga volume this time, but that makes the more interesting.

The plot in these moves so quickly. I love Blair-cat's fighting, and what has Maka done!
