Still waiting for the movie sub since it’s already been out in Japan for a while now. And once I see this movie, I will totally review the hell out of it.
As a very loyal Kuroshitsuji fan, I must see this movie. MUST. SEE. And so I will see eventually. But, being said loyal fan, there are already some things I see that kind of irritate me a bit. While I’m glad they made it into a live action film, there are many disappointments here as well. The movie trailer both makes me want to see it and not want to. I seriously hope they didn’t destroy the series. But, from the plot and several discrepancies there will definitely be a few things I will wish they hadn’t done. The first being, making Ciel a girl. WTF. He’s a boy. But, only when I see the movie will I truly decide if that was a bad or good thing.
Furthermore, I will be posting up here youtube vids of the Kuroshitsuji Musicals so that everyone can enjoy them. I, personally, loved them. Absolutely loved them. Do I have a favorite? Yes, yes I do. But, I’m not saying.
And as an extra little note, probably irrelevant, out of all the parts of the Black Butler franchise (Kuroshitsuji), I still love the manga the most. There are many people who’ve only seen the anime, only the musicals, etc etc. To those, I suggest reading the manga. The Kuroshitsuji manga is honestly the best out of all there is to offer on Black Butler.
Because it is the actual story. The rest are all branches of the manga, adaptions from the manga or anime, and so on. Even the movie looks to be far off (like the second season of the anime) in that the setting appears to be in the current time when in actuality, the setting is during the time of Queen Elizabeth, Jack The Ripper, etc. etc.
I still like everything involving Black Butler though. I just happen to love the manga. (Get me?)
