I love Soul and Maka as individuals, as partners, and as a couple xD

They are a very unique shounen leading girl and guy Rare for me to see a shounen series wherein the girl is the main fighter while the guy is her support

I also love it that the leading girl is not just some burden. She can fight to protect herself. The leading guy doesn't get all the spotlight.

I love Soul that despite his wild appearance, he's a real gentleman . . . and I love him in that black suit xD

Can't wait to see more episodes that focus on them Especially on their relationship xD Squeee!!!!

I am not sure what to expect from this at the moment, but I wouldn't mind if the anime decided to keep love out of the picture alltogether.

A good friendship were both rely on one another would work just fine for me.

Spoiler for their relationship (manga knowledge):


What really makes this pair stand out from the other two team is their interaction revolving around the <spoiler element skipped> which I really look forward to see it animated.

Well, in the first place, the word relationship doesn't always mean a romantic one.
Though I wouldn't complain if it did >.>

Nevertheless, I am drawn to this pairing/duo, more so than the others.


(Still pending on Kidd's 'team')

Best interaction between them that's shown thus far would be the Soul Resonance scene and the dialogue that follows.

The way they hold hands (or more properly, grip each other's hands) says an incredible amount about their relationship - much more than "just" romance.

I suppose you could say they're "soul-mates" .... (I should hide now).

I don't think of their relationship as romantic so to speak but then again I can't see them leaving each other either for other girls or guys.

Regardless I love seeing them together.

That's exactly how I see it.

They have one of the best partnerships I've seen.

Same thing for me ... I would be weird. O_O

And, I think they look good together. xD

BTW, talking about the characters ... Soul, like Sapphire-Pyro said, despite his obsession for being cool and his wild appearence, he's a gentleman ... And I love his voice. (And the sound of the drools! xD)

For Maka, I liked her in the manga, and the way she hold the scythe is so cool~.

I find it odd though, as much as Soul is obsessed with the whole "cool" ordeal, he doesn't really mention it much aside from the normal days (and it seems more the case in future development, by now in the latest chapters i don't even see him show a slightest sign of "cool obsession")

Personally I think "being cool" is just a front Soul puts up because he has the personality of a teenager. When you are a teenager, even if you are 100% gentleman inside, you just can't admit that you are one. It's just so...

Uncool.

Agree. I also think this is the case for Black Star, wich could give us a clue as for why they get along so well.

Spoiler:



On the otherhand, maybe i could interpret Soul in an alternate direction:
He's always cool headed even in face of insanity, thus, COOL

I disagree. Black Star, in my opinion is not a gentleman. He is a good person (loyal to friends, has a heart etc), but he is not a gentleman. No gentleman would ever go peek at girls, and hit girls, make a raucous, and eat like a pig.

That just doesn't work.

I think you took my comment a little too litelary there. So let's just say that I think both Soul & Black, are kind at heart.

Oh and a gentleman doesn't make fun of a girl's breast size.

I think from the first episode that its pretty obvious that they're going to end up getting married in the future. It almost seems that Death Scythes are another form of human, after all Maka's father is a death scythe also. They'll probably just throw in stuff here and there to build up on their relationship but nothing too heavy for the most part. As the show obviously isn't about that, it seems more about partnership and zany action. But, I do love these two characters, Maka is too adorable, and Soul looks like a kid but has an adult voice, thats pretty cool, lol.

The possibility of Soul and Maka ending up together is very high xD But sadly, so far they only have a platonic relationship. Best way to describe them is that they're really good partners.
But they sure act and seem canon xD Man, the anime and manga are teasing my shipper senses xD LOL!
