A minute into the game…


↑Hehehe! “どS” Sebastian even in game. YAY! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 I hope they put more!
And 相変わらず、フィニーは「バカ、失礼いたしました、うちのダメガードなー」です(according to Sebasu) :) 🙂 🙂

Anyway, I finally opened the box.
Seriously, I bought the collector’s edition. But I really don’t know what for…. Good thing I bought it at a discounted price. Let’s see, the seal ring that I know I won’t wear, the Phantonmhive wax that I won’t be using, and the Phantomhive cell phone screen cleaner strappy that I can’t/won’t be using, and can’t use because my cell phone is an iPhone (no strap hole).
The really really nice letter set that is 勿体ない to use…. The only thing that I might make the use of of is probably the extra manga version cover.
Anyway, game time! Like other DS games based on manga/anime, it’s got plenty of the seiyuus voice, but it’s not enough. It would be so nice if they would include voices to “all” the dialogues—- but then again, it’s a NDS game, not PS2 or 3. ↑↑←←↑combo↓→→↓ Hyaa!!!
I’m talking as if I know so much about games, when, the fact is, this is the first video game of any console that I put my hands on in 2009 A^o^;;;; It’s been so long I took the NDS out that I forgot where the touch pen slot was (-.-) Right, I’m not a game player at all (wait, does iPhone’s game apps count?)
Anyway, lunch time!

In case you guys/girls are interested…

3/18 ~ 3/21 Tokyo International Anime Fair at the Big Sight.

At the ANIPLEX booth (K-01), there will be an exhibition of “Kuroshitsuji”.
There is going to be a lifesize standing signboard of the illustration from DVD vol.1 (limited edition), with Ciel’s face taken out, so that you can get a friend to take a picture of your own face posed as Ciel next to Sebastian.
<<info taken from Kuroshitsuji official website>>

Click the link for more information about Tokyo Interenational Anime Fair 2009.

Personally, I don’t really care for those type of pictures where you pose your own face, nobody in real life can match a manga or anime character artwise (or it would be very scary looking; not to mention that you’re actually decapitating defacing the character that you love and put your own in its place). Now, but if I can steal buy the lifesize (or larger than life) signboard or poster without anyone’s face cut out, that would be nice…
By the way, have you seen these posters last year?

200439388a closer look200439391Big poster is good!
(Question is, where at home do I display it? I already have TeniPri’s Tezuka and Fuji lifesize manga style signboard and they’re being stored away since 2003, so it makes me rethink why in the first place I got them)

Anyway, Anime Fair! That means more toys and junk for me to buy, yay! (whack self)

P.S. The pix above are borrowed from the official Kuroshitsuji’s Staff Blog. The pix are dated 2008.10.

This one is the animation version of Kuroshitsuji, including interviews with staff etc, and of course lots and lots of illustrations too.

黒執事アンソロジー 虹執事 (Amazon)
ISBN 4757525303
Release date: 2009.03.27
650 yen
This one is an official collection of manga style anthology as drawn by famous creators with their original styles. Judging from the title and sub-title, I’m sure it’s full of gags! 🙂 It’s also released by Square Enix.

I just placed my preorders with another bookstore, since my favorite Amazon store seems not to be selling neither books. I’ll update with images of the books later if I can find them somewhere…
(Update 2009.03.16: Amazon started selling those books. Links added)
(Update 2009.03.22: books’ images up)

Release date: 2009.03.04

This one comes with pic of dead Ciel (sorry, but he looks like he is dead, I mean, he’s lying on a bed of white roses, inside a boat… ok fine, we’ll just say, he’s sleeping peacefully…) This scan is from our friend. I bought the CDS that doesn’t have DVD but comes with wide foldout of Sebastian (rowing the boat as we see in the ED2 -see below)

Lacrimosa [Single] [Maxi]
Release date: 2009.03.04
1223 yen
This one doesn’t include the DVD (music video), but comes with a foldout of Sebastian. The image is that of Sebastian rowing the boat with white rose petals floating as seen in ED2. I’ll scan mine later if I can’t find a better image elsewhere :p (I don’t like scanning :p
Below is what I could scrape off from Kalafina‘s official website A^.^; and that’s the tiny size they give us. So stingy!

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

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^_^;

Kuroshitsuji Nendoroido Sebastian Michaelis

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-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)

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!
