Black☆Star: Wait for it, wait for it. 8:01. Maka is officially late for the first time ever.

Black☆Star: Alright, let’s do this. Who’s got theories?

Kid: Her alarm didn’t go off.

Black☆Star: All three alarms, all with battery backups? Come on, who wants to take this seriously?

Patty: Ooh! She was kidnapped in her sleep!

Black☆Star: That’s what I’m talking about. Pretty dark, Patty, but way more plausible than Kid’s idiotic alarm clock theory.

Liz: I bet she tucked herself in her bed too tight and got stuck.

Indeed I allow myself a lot of things and I go in all directions. But there is one thing I always keep in mind when I draw my stories: children must also be able to read them. There are young readers who read Soul Eater and from there we can not do anything either. Indeed I sometimes go in very dark or grotesque ways. But I still limit myself to the fact that the readership a little young is never shocked by what I will show.
