Of course, this is the opinion of an old curmugeon who couldn't sit through more than 3 episodes of the show... but I might have if not for those two. XD
I actually forgot about that. They annoyed me very much as well. Their character flaws were so outrageous they were borderline unbelievable (leaving your partners in the middle of fighting undead mummies to fly back to NEVADA FROM EGYPT because you are worried a picture in the hallway might be crooked? REALLY Kidd?)
I'm glad I was able to shrug it off for a while because it gets to be a lot better and Soul Eater is simply a fantastic anime all around. Part of Soul Eater's awesomeness is in the wide variety of characters that seem to get a lot of screentime all around. It's about the main 3 partner combos a fair amount of the time, but the other characters like the witches and teachers and other weapons/meisters get a lot of attention too, so they are not annoying screen hogs nearly as much.
