Kuroshitsuji 2nd Season: Yay! Wait, what?

21 06 2009

When it was announced that Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) was getting a second season I squeed in joy, along with the rest of the internet. Then I actually thought about it …

While I’m all for more adventures of Lord Grumpy-Pants and his Über-Butler of doom, how the hell are they going to pull that off with the way the first season ended?

More under the cut – Massive spoilers for the ending of the first season!

How the hell are we going to pull a 2nd season out of our asses?!

My thoughts on Kuroshitsuji, or Black Butler. I had read the first chapter or two of the manga a while back and thought it was pretty amusing (and the artwork was gorgeous) but there wasn’t quite enough to keep me reading. I feel pretty much the same about the anime, though I did really enjoy parts of it!

Kuroshitsuji has all the elements of an anime that I generally like, as if it were tailor-made for fans like me. But even knowing this, it still failed to live up to its potential completely and didn’t grab me as much or as quickly as it should.

I’ve used a lot of pictures in this review, so I’ll cut it … also, obviously contains spoilers for all of the series, so read at your own risk! Read the rest of this entry »
