「その執事、流血」(あぁ〜サムッ)
kuroshitsuji-20“Humph! You think this is bad? I’ll get 2 more bitch slaps from that chibisuke my master few minutes later. Stay tuned, my pets!”
(Yes, this week our Sebastian gets whupped and slapped, and gets shown some six packs; all for the sake of cheap rating)

Hmmmm…. what can I say about this episode??
I don’t like it!!! (ToT) It’s wrong, all wrong!!! What’s with Angela’s new “dress”? But more importantly, why did they make Lau that way? In the 2nd CD Drama (with the mangaka’s cooperation), he and LanMao were “saved” by Phantomhive & Co. from what’s his name (forgot name, but he’s a hentai Chinese mafia boss), so Lau owes Ciel. But this episode, this episode… (grumbles), and Abelein? What’s up with that?! Cheap I tell ya, cheap emotional rollercoaster that didn’t have too much of an effect (although I kind of understand why Sebastian let it go that way; I mean after all Abelein effortlessly beat Sebastian at making the Undertaker rofl).
I call for a rewrite! ….Alright, since they already aired it, I’ll just ignore this abomination they called an episode, and look forward to next week’s 😀
<<For argument’s sake, I took this droolworthy (depending on your state of mind) screencap of Sebasuchan to counter the story in this episode. Be thankful!>>

——————————————
P.S. I don’t know how in the world I forgot such easy to remember name of that mafia boss. it’s Lee.
(voiced by Ginchan Sugita-san)

For those who refuse to accept anime Lau’s fate, check out this 2nd CD Drama
黒執事 華麗なるドラマCD
k-cd2

Lau + LanMao’s first meeting w. Phantomhive & Co. story is in the「その執事, 武踏」part of the Drama CD.
The case that Ciel & Sebastian are investigating involves numerous female corpes that are popping around in an alarming rate, and all got one thing in common: their feet are missing…
…and what Ciel has to do in order to catch the perpetrator 😀

The story is actually quite good. But don’t take my word for it, check it out! Sugita-san’s voice as Lee is …as expected of Sugita-san. And in certain parts, appears quite ecchi if you take it “the other way”… A^_^;

Ok, first off, I don’t really care for musicals based off anime or manga. Most of the time it just gives me the creeps or goosebumps.

But, since some Kuroshitsuji fans might be interested, here’s the link to find out for yourselves. Tickets are now on sale (6000 yen)

2-11「ある」アニメ公式掲示板にって「フィニって、男女問わずに人気ありますよね。男なのに、あの可愛さは犯罪(!?)だと思いますよ!」と「フィニの可愛さは確かに犯罪級ですよ(笑)だって、あの可愛さで男って……心はフィニに奪われてしまいましたよ(*´艸`)」と書いてありますね。流石にフィニ!

まぁ、私にとって、フィニはホント、確かに可愛い過ぎますですね、天然で明るくて。。。でも!あれは可愛い可愛い天然バカ弟みたいな可愛さですよ!犯罪級なんてはおいおい A^_^;〜って言うか、あれほどバカ力って逆でしょう。それにしても、長い長い間生きてきたセバスチャンはあんな「宇宙人」なフィニに出会ったのは初めて、フィニのその天然な「脳みそに怒りを通り越して感動を覚えます」ですって!(マンガ「その執事、多忙」の巻より)結局は悪魔は天然バカキャラクターに弱いですかぁ。。。そうですか。。。やるじゃん、フィニ!ある意味で無敵ですね。。。

フィニなら何でもいいです〜って感じですね A^_^;  ちなみに梶裕貴さんのフィニの声は完璧です!!

なぁにぃぃ〜?!!!

kuroshitsuji-19Tanaka-san to the rescue?!?!!!

Well, what did I tell you? Don’t mess with drugs or it’ll get you arrested… And our Sebasちゃん, the devil that he is, can’t even escape the fate of iron maiden…. Maybe I should recap the episode rather than twist the past (story) like Angela and end up impaled to the ceiling by three two gorgeous non-humans and an okama. (hmm…)

In this episode, Ciel Holmes and Dr. Sebastian Watson investigate a murder that had to do with a new kind of illegal drug that’s more potent than Lau’s specialty opium. And lo and behold, the Phantomhive brand candies contain cocaine this new drug called Lady Blanc. Looks like you’re going down, young count von Phantomhive! In the 19th century, everyone is totally guilty until proven innocent y’know. But since Ciel is underage, Scotland Yard’s own actual Holmes and Watson (not really) decided instead to take Sebastian downtown (London) and have a little fun inquisition with a whole bunch of medieval torture devices. It’s ok, Sebas can handle it! Now, whether Sebas would rather see Ciel go through those, being the ‘ど-S’ that he is, but for the sake of drooling female fans, our dear producers thought by having Sebas go through it would rake up the rating and sell more DVD’s and make more people buy DVD’s and then there’s a chance to come up with a new season because they can’t squeeze the Circus arc into the little few episodes left for the current season, so now that next episode is #20, meaning only what 4 episodes left for them to come up with a good story to end the season with, or a cliffhanger to lure us Kuroshitsuji fans into believing that there actually might be another season after this one, and then end up not doing it, but instead squeeze the “extra” episodes into the packaged DVD’s, so those who didn’t plan to buy DVD’s are forced to buy DVD’s, thus I’m going in circles and have already forgotten that I was supposed to recap ep.19 but ended up ranting aimlessly. Well, someone else will do a better job at recapping this episode anyway, so let me have my own little fun :p

Did I mention that I would really love to see the Circus/Noah arc animated? I want to see the cat-lover-to-the-extreme Sebastian’s face inside the tiger’s mouth! (now, who is どーS?!) >:-)

Kuroshitsuji Nendoroido Sebastian Michaelis

chibiSebas
This is the prototype model for the Kuroshitsuji Nendoroid Sebastian M. figure that’s going to be released summer 2009. It’s made by Good Smile Company. The limbs are movable. There is no price yet. Of course, the official release figure is in full color. More info later. Anyway, it’s so cute!

Uh… I realize I’ve been posting Kuroshitsuji only so far ^_^; But due to time on the computer and biased preference, anything Kuroshitsuji is catching my attention, haha! I’ll do better next time, or Gintama and Natsume are going to hire hitman Reborn to hound me…

That said, it’s time for me to go watch Kuroshitsuji 19! (dodges reader’s flying stones)

<<update 2009.03.24 below>>
Alright, here are the pictures of finished Sebastian Nendoroid 🙂
Seb-cute1
Seb-cute2
Seb-cute3You can change his body parts and attach a nyanko too. All at your disposal and costs 3500 yen, but if you order from certain toyshops you can buy it at around 2500 yen or maybe even a bit less 🙂
The entire figure is approx. 100mm tall. Stand is included. And here I go preorder now…. (uhh wait…price shopping first; yes, I’m cheap! It’s not on sale till end of July 2009 anyway)

For more information see http://www.nendoroid.jp/.

William!!! William!!! の出番だぁぁぁ!!!(>o< /

I think I should write the staffs @ mbs + Kuroshitsuji producers and kiss thank them! Just when I was biatching complaining about them not appearing to put the Circus arc into this season (thus I can’t see more of William), they squeezed him in episode 18! Yay! Woooh, and fans of Undertaker, hold your breath!!! Guess who he might be ^_-

Alright for now, will write later, I have a compulsive urge to watch this episode again on TV, since it left me disatisfied because I was expecting more, it ended too abrupt (….pfff! think I wouldn’t have recorded for later pleasureable viewing until I get the DVDs? hah!) Speaking of DVD, why won’t they release blu-ray?

The 2009.03 issue of Animage not only has this beautiful cover, it’s got a pin-up of the same picture inside (and the reverse pic has Agni, Sebastian, Grell occupying 1/2 page), along with a whole bunch of Kuroshitsuji scoops… as it leads to the finale. So I guess what, ep.24 is finale? If so, I really hope they come up with another season! I want to see the circus arc animated!
