(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

…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, …??

What??!?

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)

megane!

megane!!

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.
O…K….

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

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.

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!  😀
