Soul Eater is Shonen at its finest. However, it is that which may be a drawback for some viewers, as Soul Eater conforms to Shonen's general conventions; the mood stays light and upbeat, and the episodes are full of adolescent humour. This is a genre issue only and if a person is not a fan of Shonen, this probably won't be for them. However, one could say that they're missing out, and this show is a must for anyone who likes anything Shonen. Dripping in slickness and with an emphasis on style, BONES have done it again. Soul Eater is extremely entertaining, hilarious, and packed with some incredibly cool action. Despite being typically Shonen, the premise is unique, intriguing and has a great personality.
