    (By the way, this thread really belongs to the Download Requests and Recommendations forum, not here)

    Just for reference's sake: Soul Eater is a shounen action/adventure with strong supernatural and comedic elements. Basically, a bunch of teenagers have swords which require them to "eat" 99 human souls and 1 witch soul in order to qualify as proper shinigami. Art style (which I think the OP is looking at) is slightly chibi-cute, so more of the Shaman King / Disgaea variety than the more elongated-figure Oh! Great or CLAMP style. Thematically, it's pretty much shinigami / souls / witchcraft / gothic-halloween.

    Assuming "souleater92" refers to the birth year of the OP, we're talking younger shounen rather than older shounen. So simpler and unambiguous characters, lots of action and comedy, and fairly uncomplicated lightweight plot.

    Therefore, try the following series:
    - Shaman King
    - Disgaea
    - MAR (Marchen Awakens Romance)
    - Flame of Recca
    - Hunter x Hunter
    - School Rumble

    -Dizzy-
    Manga Genre Focus: Romance, Comedy, Slice-of-life. Primarily shounen, then seinen and shoujo.

    ...Read Naruto

    After That, Bleach, Death Note, Hunter X Hunter, Hajime No Ippo

    Those are all long enough to keep you occupied for a while

    ...you just had a random volume of an (slightly) obscure series at your house? Guess your not from the US lol. Um, seeing as its the third volume you'll probably be lost with the story and it'll probably end with a cliffhanger since theres 7 volumes in total. I couldnt find scans when i looked for it, so read it if you want, but good luck finding the rest of the series anywhere..
