    I watched Kuroshitsuji first, that s why I m so late in reading it I liked it so much that s why I picked this out even though I finished both seasons I thought the series was over.How wrong I was.Apparently, the anime industry has once again decided to end a series before the manga counterpart ended I suppose I could understand WHY they d do that but they should have stopped at a point where they could pick off again once the manga is far enough Like Naruto And Kuroshitsuji is surely popul I watched Kuroshitsuji first, that s why I m so late in reading it I liked it so much that s why I picked this out even though I finished both seasons I thought the series was over.How wrong I was.Apparently, the anime industry has once again decided to end a series before the manga counterpart ended I suppose I could understand WHY they d do that but they should have stopped at a point where they could pick off again once the manga is far enough Like Naruto And Kuroshitsuji is surely popular enough that fans are willing to wait Cheez But enough of that.Kurshitsuji introduces the young Earl Phantomhive, Ciel, who inherited his title and his job as the Queen s dog from his deceased father Forced to grow up faster than he has to, he juggles many responsibilities as the head of a house and the prefect of the underworld Thankfully, he has his amazing butler, Sebastian, by his side Sebastian can do and WILL do everything Ciel tells him From cleaning up spectacular messes to performing superhuman feats, this butler is perfect in almost every way Too perfect Apparently, Sebastian is a demon Ciel made a contract with He will stand by Ciel s side until Ciel finds the people behind his torture and his parents deaths and exact revenge And then eat Ciel s soul of course.I LOVE Kuroshitsuji Not only is it set in the Victorian era yep, Ciel is Queen Victoria s dog , it has a unique plot and such a loveable set of characters I URGE you to read this awesome manga

    It was readable and nicely drawn, and that s pretty much all the nice things I have to say about Black Butler Here are all the not so nice things instead.Firstly, the content itself was shabby The overarching plot seems to be that Ciel wants revenge for the death of his parents, and for help with this he has sold his soul to the demon Sebastian This seems to be forgotten almost instantly, as all we see Ciel actually do is bicker with his demon servant, bully people and get kidnapped And as i It was readable and nicely drawn, and that s pretty much all the nice things I have to say about Black Butler Here are all the not so nice things instead.Firstly, the content itself was shabby The overarching plot seems to be that Ciel wants revenge for the death of his parents, and for help with this he has sold his soul to the demon Sebastian This seems to be forgotten almost instantly, as all we see Ciel actually do is bicker with his demon servant, bully people and get kidnapped And as if to overcompensate, Sebastian is the perfect Mary Sue attractive, unflappable, invincible and deadly, single handedly resolving all conflict The clothing is detailed and consistent, but anachronisms are rife and at times even the setting is forgotten as aspects of Japanese culture, unheard of in Victorian England, make their way in.Secondly, I tired very quickly of the characters Ciel is a brat, no two ways about it I know his parents are dead, so it s understandable that he s not the most loving of people, but literally all he does is lash out There is no emotional vulnerability and very little dwelling on his actual parents Instead we assume he must be dwelling on his parents, because he sold his soul to avenge them, which would be fine except for the fact that he doesn t really seem to be getting on with itSebastian, as mentioned above, is perfect Enough said The other four household staff are at best two dimensional I ll refer to them as the maid, cook and gardener, since spelling varies and at worst entirely flat Tanaka is permanently an anachronically green tea drinking chibi, and what is his job, anyway They are completely incompetent and serve only as an excuse for Sebastian to show off how impossibly capable he is, whilst patronising them and gaining their undying respect, because that s how people feel when they re patronised I understand that later they show their worth as guards of the Phantomhive mansion, but if this is the case, why do they even bother attempting other jobs when all the effect they have is counterproductive Ciel doesn t strike me as the type to put up with wasting money just because it keeps his staff happy.Thirdly, I have no interest in fanservice and so do not enjoy wasting my time flipping through pages and pages of Sebastial hitting on Ciel There are sexual undertones between the ageless demon and the twelve year old child and nobody seems to find this disturbing Sebastian on his own is bad enough We get it he s tall, hot, dangerous and damn, does he take his gloves off in a pointless way He has a pointed tongue sexy and does a lot of acrobatics and strange things with cultery And that s when he s not rescuing his poor vulnerable master from being tied up with belts and beaten up by big burly men This isn t even the volume with the paedophile Or rather, with one of the paedophiles.I m going to stop now I m going to stop, and I m going to put down the book And then I m going to do what I should have done in the first place, and read something else

    What can I say about this first volume in the Black Butler series I absolutely LOVED it It manages to be cute, suspenseful, funny and chilling all the way through Ciel is intriguingly deep for a child, and Sebastian is both wonderfully complex and extraordinarily simple in the end and one hell of a butler Finny, Meirin and Bard are great as comic relief, but surprisingly they also serve to offset the scenes in which Sebastian is slaughtering the criminals, making the bloodshed both borderl What can I say about this first volume in the Black Butler series I absolutely LOVED it It manages to be cute, suspenseful, funny and chilling all the way through Ciel is intriguingly deep for a child, and Sebastian is both wonderfully complex and extraordinarily simple in the end and one hell of a butler Finny, Meirin and Bard are great as comic relief, but surprisingly they also serve to offset the scenes in which Sebastian is slaughtering the criminals, making the bloodshed both borderline comical with a slight edge of hysteria, I thought and alsodisturbing next to the relatively innocent misadventures and shenanigans of the trio But my very favorite part was the last couple frames of the manga, in which Sebastian turns to exit, but then pauses, turns to make eye contact with the reader, and raises his finger to his lips in the shhh gesture It was hair raising, because Sebastian is so perfect at everything he does when you re drawn into the story, its easy to let yourself believe that he knows you ve been watching I have many favorite manga series, but can honestly say that I wasdrawn into this one any other I ve read It was really great, I am so excited to read the next volume

    Sebas chan Just recently I watched all of the Black Butler anime series and upon finishing the show I knew I had to read the manga It ended up being perfect timing since I am participating in a genre challenge through my local library This week is the last week of the challenge and the theme was choose your own genre What better genre challenge for me than a manga I ve never read one before and previously I was put off by the fact that you have to read a manga from right to left I mean s Sebas chan Just recently I watched all of the Black Butler anime series and upon finishing the show I knew I had to read the manga It ended up being perfect timing since I am participating in a genre challenge through my local library This week is the last week of the challenge and the theme was choose your own genre What better genre challenge for me than a manga I ve never read one before and previously I was put off by the fact that you have to read a manga from right to left I mean seriously, what How confusing I m glad I watched all of the show first, because that really helped me to try harder to understand how to read the manga Luckily I was able to adjust to the reading stylequickly than I thought I would and now I m confident about reading mangas Hooray To anyone out there who is put off by having to read a manga from right to left like I was, it s not so bad Try it I m so glad I gave it a shot.In this first volume of Black Butler we meet Earl Ciel Phantomhive who is 12 years old and he is the last remaining member of his family Being the only Phantomhive family member left Ciel is already the head of his household as well as a toy candy making company that he inherited We are also introduced to Sebastian Michaelis, a demon that Ciel has entered into a contract with and who acts as his butler There isn t a whole lot of information on how the contract came to be in this volume, but I do know from the show that we getinformation later All of Ciel s other household servants are an entertaining group, especially with all their mishaps Ho ho ho This is an exciting, mysterious, and hilarious story set in Victorian London with lots of paranormal fun thrown in Here are a few things I like best about Black Butler 1 It s set in Victorian London Oh how I love this era It s so perfect for a darker setting too 2 Demons Paranormal things I just love all that 3 This may be THE most perfect Gothic thing ever 4 I love stories where a character has a tragic back story 5 HUMOR How a story can be so dark and so comedic at the same time is a mystery to me, but I love it 6 Uniqueness Let s face it in the world of paranormal books movies, shows, etc , anything different is a diamond in the rough Black Butler certainly has that uniqueness.Okay, so some of those may not be specifically about THIS volume but about the manga series anime altogether I ve also read the second book in the series already I was going to review that separately, but I decided not to Pretty much that one adds in the Jack the Ripper case along with the introduction of Madam Red, Grell, and the Undertaker Grell and the Undertaker are definitely two of my favorite characters, so if you liked this one then you definitely need to read that one Black Butler Volume 2 was just as good, if not better, than the first volume Black Butler is perfection for fans of the paranormal, horror, demons, historical fiction about Victorian London, dark stories, and gothic reads I can t wait to readof the books in the series
