This review is from: Soul Eater - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Just from the look of it. It is easy to dismiss this series for its silly style. However, if you look past this and give it a try then i promise you that you wont be disappointed. Set in a Halloween style world, where weapons are actually living people, the story focuses on 7 students from the Death Misters and Weapons Academy (DWMA) where they fight bad spirits called Keshens and Witches in order to make their partner into a Death Syth.
Going into the world and the characters, the mood is a very cheery dispite its Halloween style. The characters are a very likable bunch as well as the supporting characters. Overall they are a very funny group in different ways (e.g.. one character is obsessed with symmetry that he would leave in the middle of the battle to make sure a painting isn't leaning slightly to the left), even Death is funny character. The action is good, although not the Dragon ball style fights that i have come to love.
Funimation once again does a great Dub job, with voice talent of Laura Bailey, Todd Haberkorn and Troy Baker added to the mix.
My only complants is while most of the Supporting cast is well invested, there are some who are left out for most of the series. Another is the ending. Its an ok ending, but i do think it wouldn't kill the studio, Bones to do one additional episode.
Overall this is a great, Funny series and is defenatly worth a by as something to Watch for Halloween, espesualy among Anime fans.
