As fans of Japanese art, from printmaking to anime, the Bouler family watched a few episodes tonight of Soul Eater, an anime adaptation of the Japanese manga series by Atsushi Okubo. The fantasy series explores the life and death battles over human souls. With partnerships between characters forming weapons, this surreal cartoon presents themes of honor and teamwork, using some of the most adventurous graphic illustration I've seen on television. And what other cartoon features a character who is obsessed with symmetry? Check it out on youtube.
