Judging by the size (Number of pages) of each chapter, I would say monthly.

I don't care, but if we keep talking about it, a mod may come in start deleting posts

To bring things back to topic... looks like voting will start for a character poll this month according to the official manga site.

Main characters almost always win. But in this case, would that be Maka or would that be Soul?

Oh, sorry about the previous posts just thought it would have been helpful, well moving on, while the series is called Soul Eater Soul and Maka don't nessecarily have the spotlight all the time like in most shonen series.
Spoiler for Reasons:


But at times casual readers would vote for the title character (One Piece, Ruroni Kenshin, Dragon Ball) while regular readers would vote for their for their favorites that's not necessarily the main character (Naruto, Bleach, Negima, Air Gear) I personally would like to see Kid or Black Star take the stop spot because of their personalities while I see Soul and Maka round out the top 4.

SE's getting the Gangan cover again next month. That makes four months in a row right now! Will they make it to 5?

(I think it will go back to FMA though)

I really think the real central character of the series is Black Star. We really don't know anything about Soul's background, but we know enough about Black Star to see that he has a major decision coming up. There's some real depth beyond alll that Ore-sama shtick.

I think the title "SOUL EATER" is very much misleading, while newcomers can automatically assume that Maka and Soul are the main characters due to their appearances in all the promotional material (they're even on the front of two tankabon covers 1 and the upcoming 12) the story's focus don't necessarily focus on them all the time infact Black Star and Kid have more central character appeal because of their backgrounds than Maka.

Its really just to promote the anime, it happen to Full Metal Alchemist 5 years back when the anme was still airing and when it became a big hit it dominated the covers of most all anime related material and Soul Eater seem to be picking up most of the heat right now.
I wouldn't be surprise if they did it for August as well but I'm not complaining because they all kook awesome (especially the June cover with Black Star)

A central character, as the name suggest, means that the story would more or less rotate about that particular character. In the case of Soul Eater, the writer has spread the focus to all three of them, Maka/Soul, BlackStar/Tsubaki, Kidd/Thompson Sisters.

That said, impressive background or not, the main story of Soul Eater is still being told from Maka/Soul point of view. Every major incident has them in the middle of all of it, and at the start of all of it.

The fact that B*S has had the most revealed about his past could mean that his role is ending sooner than the other two.

I'm really having a hard time imagining what Ookubo could do with him after this current arc.

Well you're entitled to your opinions and I'm entitled to mine, I'm just saying this in comparison to most shounen titles, not that I'm complaining infact that's why I love this series because it seems fairly balanced as a whole.
