Anime of the Week

Hey! KandiRaver here, giving my nerdy thoughts on the world of anime!

In last week's post I described what anime is, so this week I will be telling you about a specific anime show. (I will be doing this every few weeks with a different show)
The show I chose for this week is...
Kuroshitsuji! (otherwise known as Black Butler)

The show follows Ceil Phantomhive, an angsty 12 year old boy, and his butler, Sebastian Michaelis.

Ceil actually died with his parents sometime before in a house fire, but was able to come back to life after making a deal with Sebastian, who is actually a demon: Ciel comes back to life and Sebastian serves as his butler, but once Ciel dies Sebastian gets his soul.
The setting is in London, England, in the late 1800's during the reign of Queen Victoria. Throughout the show, Ciel and Sebastian work for the queen to stop certain crimes. Some of the crimes actually happened in real life, such as Jack the Ripper and the opium 'war'.
Some other main characters in the show are:
-Madame Red
-Grell Sutcliffe and William Spears
-Bard, Finnian, Maylin, and Tanaka (Ciel's other servants)

There are many more characters and such throughout the show, and I would tell you how it ends..but that would just ruin it.

Oh! And a few more things:
Here are some links to a few Black Butler..films, or whatever you want to call them. - Kuroshitsuji Musical Part 1 - Kuroshitsuji Musical 2 Part 1 - "Ciel In Wonderland"

That's all for now. See you next week!
