|The story so far....
Eight hundred years ago, the world was protected by Eight Shinigami Legions, a group of dedicated to to preserving the world order. Led by the Grim Reaper himself, the group faced a betrayal by Death's own apprentice, who became a kishin and wrecked havoc on the world with his powers of insanity.
Forced to be sealed away by his own master, the group disbanded. The Grim Reaper then founded Death Weapon Meister Academy (also by the acronym "DWMA") to act in it's place. Students within the school, enrolled as either meisters (users of demon weapons) or demon weapons (humans who can transform into weapons), are educated and supervised at a young age to prevent the uprising of another kishin while upholding the responsibility of fighting against the forces of evil and the collection of souls of the deceased.
Those of the N.O.T Class (Normally Overcome Targets) aspire to learn to control their weapons powers and/or seek opportunities made available through the school's trusted reputation around the world. However, those of the E.A.T Class (Especially Advantaged Talent) instead used their powers to fight evil while many aspire to create a death scythe, a powerful weapon made by collecting 99 evil human souls and one witch's soul.
