(that’s on the same disk with the 5th Volume of Kuroshitusji II DVD)

… Some words of caution for the ultra die-hard to the core fans of Kuroshitsuji:  Watch at your own risk.

Why?  Because all of the characters (K1 and K2) that you have come to love and hate are all BUTCHERED!!!
And the oh-so-anticipated MOVIE (not) trailer preview won’t help either!!
Now, that being said, would that stop you from watching?  Pffff!  OF COURSE NOT! 😀
I’ll see if I can take some screen shots from my DVD, if I can figure it out.  For some reason OSX’s screen capture won’t let us take caps from DVD :/

Let’s just say, as I watched the OVA, I:  (1) dropped my jaw, and (2) fell off my seat, and (3) cried.  (ok, not really all that.  I laughed).  Anyway, I think when you guys watch it, it may relieve you of the hatred that you have felt towards certain characters, so it turns out it could serve as a psycho therapy for some of you guys :p

Spoiler below:  don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.




… SO, Sebastian becomes Ciel’s butler for the eternity, haha!  Sebastian cannot, ever, eat Ciel’s soul, yeah!  😀

Thanks to Alois’ “himitsu” contract with Hannah:  That Ciel would wake up as a demon, after Alois returns the body to Ciel.
Happy ending for Alois.  He got to reunite with lil brother Luca.  Not only that, also with Claude and Hannah.  Shiawase na family of four!  😀  (wait, so what does that mean?  Hannah ate Claude’s soul as well, after he got nailed?)

Anyways, so, we now hope for the 3rd season.

But Sebastian went ahead and delivered Ciel’s obituary notice to the regular characters (except the 3 baka and Elizabeth; and left the Phantomhive Manor, leaving non-SD form Tanaka as the head butler).  So if there’s a sequel, wouldn’t that be kind of weird?  The shinigami (including the Undertaker) aside, what about the human ones?  Well, baka-ouji is easy to trick, and Lau is usually purposely clueless so…  Anyway, I’m sure Sebastian can do something about that later.  So, if there’s a sequel, please do the manga!

Ah, so sad!  Now what am I going to watch on Thursday nights?

And so….?????


Oh by the way, there’s going to be a special episode Ciel in Wonderland inserted in the Kuroshitsuji II DVD volume 2.
Also, the author also mentions on her blog that there’s going to be 6 OVA’s (included in the DVD’s)

…so, Hanna ate Luca’s soul, and all of Luca’s love for older brother Alois/Jim  remained and reside in Hanna (hehe, I suspected so)

SO, if Sebastian ever eats Ciel’s soul, what would happen?  😀  Interesting!

Next, if Claude eats Alois’ soul, then Alois’ love for Claude with reside within him and … wait, …??


I’ll just shut up and see what the producers/writer whip up next.

… Wait, whaaaht?!!  Sebastian said ‘…anticipating for the “最終回”…’ in the preview for next episode?!  @o@!! Nooo!!!!   NOOOO!!!!  Don’t tell me it’s a 12 eps 2nd season?!??!!!!   NOooooooo!!!  |@O@|

(pictures later, I wanna watch Shiki now.  A little Shiki plug here:  mmmm not bad indeed.  I cheated and went ahead to read the latest few manga chapters eheheh)

… we got Ronald the lawnmower and William the garde… well all the shinigamis are gardeners somehow.
Yayyyyy!!!!!  Bring them (all the two-thumbs-up manga characters) all on, we’re only at episode 9!!
Though, I was hoping the animated Ronald would have a nicer color, or is it just my TV/monitor?

Anyways, ….
VIVA MEGANE-kun (plural)!!!  (*cough* oh my! pardon me!  Fangirl-mode inadvertantly got switched on)



and and and Claude also…megane!!!  @o@
Excuse me while I go feast my eyes on the megane-kun (plural) again….


(p.s. megane = 眼鏡 = glasses in case you don’t already know)

??!?!??!!!  ??!??!?!! ????!!!? ????? !!!!!!
No, there’s nothing wrong with your browser or font encoding.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, I’m once again, confused.  Considering how much air time plus CM’s and posters they’ve put up so far.


WARNING:  do not read the discussion/comments if you don’t want spoilers. 😀



The following might be a possible explanation they canned Alois (Jim MK-something)…

What about Grell then?  I guess he’s in the original manga, thus making him untouchable :p


WARNING:  The above is tabloid headline to catch your attention.

Below is the brief summary of the truth…

… which serves as another brief summary of this episode, as well.

And so I watched ep.6, and am now less confused, by about 20%, mostly because I don’t agree with how it’s going.  But, what the heck, I’ll just keep watching.
It does try to bridge the reason why Sebastian didn’t eat Ciel’s soul (from the last episode of season 1), and ultimately why Alois/Claude are obsessed with Ciel (in season 2).  Hopefully it won’t disappoint too much as the 2nd season progresses 😀
See?  The writers didn’t need to do all these if they had stuck with the manga story.  Now where am I going to see the Circus arc animated?  (yeah I’m whining again haha)

Oh, so they made it so that Ciel “lost his memory”?  How convenient.  We fans just “play along too”, then.
Soma and Agni combi is …. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.  But they are too lovable too heheh.  Hey, did I mention the voice actor for Agni is kinda cute.  Uh, ok, slap me back to the anime world.

So this episode tries to bridge the O_o? and the O_o? ‘s.  But I’m still trying to bridge it myself.  How can the entire Londoners forget that there was a gigantic dog burning up the city (K1) too?   Oh, wait!  Sebastian is, after all (and akuma de), a Man in Black; no doubt he’s got one of those  Memory Eraser devices.  I guess this part of  the mystery solved then.

But back to Trancy/Phantomhive.  I’m getting a feeling that my gut feeling is correct.  Ciel may have been “made to shame” at Trancy’s lair three years ago.  All those memory lapses/flashes as he looks around the Trancy house.
So now what?  Wait for the next episode.  Oh, we’ll get to see some butler vs butler action, let’s get ready for some eating utensils thrown around!  (kids, do not try this at home)

Pictures later.

This time, Ciel in drag.  I mean, Ciel in disguise, undercover to catch a serial killer… (see K1)
…  Ok, I have Sebastian, and the top-hat (sort of) Ciel; now, do I want to shell out 7400 – 9975 yen for this one too?  (note, I’d buy Grell’s and William’s in a instant; wait, even better, if Sebastian is included in a position with Ciel a la ohimesama-dakko mode, I’d buy right away!)

Ciel considers it as a disgrace to the House of Phantomhive, and would carry this “secret” to the grave
(grave… if he’d have any, thanks to Sebastian)
Just saw episode 4.   And my reaction was:  ‘where can I get a butler like that?!’  I was talking to myself , but a family member heard and straight out answered “well, you could sell your soul to pay for one…”  Uhm, it’s ok, as much as I like Sebastian, I rather keep my own soul thank you very much!  But, a butler who can stop a train (among other stuffs), dang!
Episode 5 is going to be very interesting!  We’ll get to see Phantomhive+Trancy interaction.  What Cloud told Sebastian towards the last scene of ep. 4 is perking my interest level.  I’m now wondering,  could it be that Ciel and Alois are after the same “group” that ‘messed’ them up?  Could Alois’ supposedly ‘dad’ be one of the group members?  No wait, ep 3 mentioned that Trancy family also works for the Majesty…. hmmmm….
Huh? what?  where’s my review for ep.3?  It’s summer, it’s hot!, I got lazy!  I do that later (whine whine whine).  Grell’s voice is still creeping me out, gotta give it to Fukuyama Jun.  He’s good!  😀
