''[[http://tapastic.com/series/SoulChaser The Soul Chaser]]'' is a gothic, supernatural manga created by Studio Kawaii. Set in Paris, in the 19th Century, a young girl goes missing while playing with her doll at home. An extensive investigation by the police turned up [[NeverFoundTheBody no results]] but the blood stained doll.

A short while later, a young woman named [[DistressedDamsel Sophie]] disappears after being given a strange doll by her fiancee, [[TheHero Fabrice]]. Fabrice will [[TheDeterminator do anything]] to get Sophie back, but it seems that he will have to go against what appear to be Supernatural forces.

However, Fabrice is not alone. He will be helped by Adriel, the rather enigmatic man who appears to know more than just selling books in his book store; [[TheQuietOne Ruby]], his mysterious helper; and The Master of Ceremonies, an even stranger being who can only be seen in the famous cemetery of Père-Lachaise...

!!''The Soul Chaser'' provides the following tropes:

* ArtEvolution: According WordOfGod the art actually improved as the series went on.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Happens a few times with the female characters...
* BathtubScene: See {{Fanservice}} below.
* BerserkButton: The Master of Ceremonies is apparently easily pissed off by ignorance... [[spoiler: he nearly kills Fabrice in chapter 6 because of this, proclaiming that HumansAreBastards in his rage.]] Hurting Ruby also puts Adriel in a massive fit of rage.
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Lacrymosa]].
* {{Bishonen}}: The Master of Ceremonies and The Guardian are notable examples.
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler: Didn't think that doll would later become so important, huh?]]
* CoolShades: Adriel's shades appear to be a rather unique pair.
* CrashIntoHello: How Fabrice met Sophie.
* DistressedDamsel: Sophie.
* EmotionlessGirl: Literal example with [[spoiler: Ruby]]; she is completely incapable of feeling emotions.
* {{Fanservice}}: Lacrymosa during her BathtubScene, BarbieDollAnatomy included.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: The Guardian.
* HumansAreBastards: According to the Master of Ceremonies.
* KubrickStare
* MegatonPunch: By the Master of Ceremonies in chapter 14, with enough force to blow his target's upper body off...
* OlderThanHeLooks: The Master of Ceremonies and The Guardian.
* ShoutOut: In chapter 16, you can see someone holding ''Norvus Karma'', another manga series on mangagazine.net. And you can see Clause from ''TheMidnightHunters'' purchasing a book. Lampshaded by Fabrice as he wondered why so many weird looking people come to that shop.
* SiblingRivalry: Between [[spoiler: the Master of Ceremonies and Lacrymosa.]]
* TheHero: Fabrice.
* TheQuietOne: Who happens to be Ruby.
* ThrillerOnTheExpress
* TooDumbToLive: Fabrice, who enters the same room his fiance went missing despite warnings of mysterious shadows and sound being seen and heard in the room.
* ToplessnessFromTheBack: See Fanservice above.
* TraintopBattle
* WhamLine: "I won't lose against you...[[spoiler: my dear sister]]." Doubles as TheReveal.
** Another reveal, this one more recent: "Nice to see you again, Fabrice" [[spoiler: after the transformation of Adriel into The Master of Ceremonies]]. This was was less obvious to see it coming, but apparently enough to be {{lampshade|Hanging}}d almost immediately.
