This week, we have a treat for everyone! For those of you who  
remember the horrible teaser of Karas from earlier this year (last  
semester?), you're in luck! In a show of super-happy-awesome, tonight  
we have all of Karas, all six parts in fact. For those of you who saw  
the first half, now you can finally figure out 'what the fuck?' For  
those of you who have never seen Karas, hurray you get to see it all!  
 From my earlier email:

"One part astral-projection spirit Batman
One part supernatural detective story
and about five parts badass.

The best primer I can give you is what it says on the back of the dvd:
"Tokyo: a city populated by both humans and ghostly beings. They  
exist in both dimensions, seen and unseen: spirits, apparitions,  
demons. The balance between these two dimensions has long been upheld  
by the city's guardian crow Karas and his masters. But that balance  
has been thrown into disarray as Eko, a former Karas, has attempted  
to seize power and bring order to the streets through force. The  
entity Yurine, who represents the will of the people, stands in his  
way with her newly risen Karas. Now an ageless battle stretching  
across both dimensions and killing humans and spirits alike is in  

KARAS is Tatsunoko Production's 40th anniversary animation  
production, and beautifully combines conventional animation with 2d  
and 3d CG."

Hope to see you there!
