A mess of stupid fillers

I did expect so much from this, since the Manga is my absolute favourite.
But they disappointed me with almost no maintainance of the original story and on that account a use of a needless, stupid filler story and corresponding characters who made the absurd story even weirder. Moreover did the original characters behave totally out of character at times.
Just the voice acting is won... read more

Great Anime (50 tv items)

"My take: Black Butler is a very funny super natural drama anime with with a hint of seriouness. It left me wanting a butler with super natural powers to do my chores around the house. If only I can find one on craig list *sigh* Synopsis: One of the noble families of England - Phantomhive, has a butler, Sebastian Michaels. He has unquestionably perfect knowledge, manners, talent with materials. martial arts and much more. But for some reason, he serves a 12 year old master... "

My my, anime ARE cool (12 tv items)

"woohoo! I love black butler and yes it is mostly because Sebi is awesome. He made household chores fun I mean I now do them thinking I am female version of sebastian, LOL but yeah I have a knack for relating to characters too much. He even won the hottest anime award of I guess 2010 or 9. The best thing about this anime is its artwork and level of details they put into it. I loved the Sebastian and Grell character and the scenes they had together were fun to watch. This series doesn't follow ma"

Favourite Jun Fukuyama Roles -A Seiyuu Tribute - (10 tv items)

"Grell Sutcliff Completely different from the serious mastermind is role of Shinigami Grell. Almost hyperactive and always trying his best to win over Sebastian's heart with all his might, his personality is definitely more salient and extreme. Grell always speaks with a very high-pitched and more female voice yet never loses that seductive undertone. This kind of voice acting is one of the main reasons I adore JunJun so much and he was indeed perfectly cast for Grell. "

"SebastianXCiel Yana-sama offers fanservice to the readers all the time, and the Anime followed her example of course. These two have more than a sadomasochistic Butler-Master relationship! xD It cannot be unseen! And although I actually also approve of SebastianXGrell, Ciel is just perfect for Sebby. "

"Kuroshitsuji and its Anime. The long story of undiscribable hate. Time to tell it again. *buries face in hands* Okay, I'll keep it as short as possible: The anime looks nice, has decent music and a bunch of great seiyuu. But in this case that isn't enough. About the 3 first episodes follow the orginal story. Then director Shinohara Toshiya must have been rebellious, drunk, on drugs or something else whacky that made him change the whole plot so that it would eventually lead to total mayhem and d"

“I did expect so much from this, since the Manga is my absolute favourite.

Just the voice acting is wonderful, that's also the reason why I kept on watching it. Also that there is at least a bit of the primary fanservice in an animated form is a positive thing about the Kuroshitsuji Anime.

But it's sad that such a great concept for an Anime was messed that badly.

They did not do better with second season...rather the opposite. ” read more
