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!
