#274 Zombies Again?

Kuroshitsuji chapter 82 : That Butler, Laughing Out Loud [read here]

KS 82Pbbbbbbttt

I literally spit on my monitor. Zombies again?? Wasn’t that last arc? Apparently it isn’t over yet. I’m sick and tired of these zombies everywhere. Lately it’s been zombie movies everywhere, zombie games, The Walking Dead. Just another day in the Land of the Free. Geez.

But still, I’m nicely surprised by the turn of events.

Prefects killed him for some reason unknown. Does that mean that the other students are dead and zombiefied, too? We have to remember how the Prefects described Derrick back in chapter 73. Each of them said he excelled at different things.

What they said about cutting off from the source, I do not understand one bit. Maybe since Derrick had connection to power through the Queen? I’m not sure. The way things are right now makes it very blurry.

Well I know now why Redmond is Viscount’s nephew. It’s for this situation to “revive” Derrick from the dead. What a big mistake they made. Derrick was revived before the zombie cruise line since Doctor Ryan Stoker is currently dead. There hasn’t been a large time gap between that and this arc.

So why does Sebastian get the epicest entrance in the world?

KS 82 0Materializing in the air like that.

Actually, forget Sebastian. Why does Ciel get so many epic poses this chapter?

KS 82 3My only guess is to counterbalance all the innocent smiling he’s been doing this entire arc.

Back to more important things:

KS 82 4

What is this? Edward defending Ciel? He has been against Ciel this entire time and decides now to defend him. Nice change of pace, Edward, even though you’ve said otherwise in the previous arc.

Lastly, we find the Undertaker has been posing as the principal of the school. He obviously hasn’t been the whole time, though, since he comes in the carriage with Ryan Stoker. He probably replaced him after coming back from the cruise ship.  What shocks me the most about this is the Undertaker’s physique. He is a very skinny and fit man. We’ve always seen him in drapery so his body shape was a mystery. All I can remember are his super sexy mid-thigh boots.

Looks like there’s a battle coming up and it’s going to be extremely bloody taking into account of Undertaker’s great skill in combat. With that, see  you next chapter.

Kuroshitsuji 79 : That Butler, Final Battle [read here]

Sebastian finally realizes that the persuant is aware of the persuer. This just got interesting.

Meanwhile, cricket. Ciel plays dirty. The chef looks like he expected this would happen saying, “His horrible personality is showing”…

KS 79 1You know the author wrote it in English when the text is written vertically!

Starting to regret questioning how Ciel was able to throw a metal lantern over a fence and through a 2nd story window many chapters ago. He’s freaking good!

And this all ends bittersweet when the Blue House prefect is inspired by Ciel’s determination to win. He doesn’t know Ciel’s actual motive is to find the Queen’s nephew, not take their house to victory. Ciel’s goals extend much farther than Bluer’s.

KS 79Oh. Shit.
It’s spreading.

Now Ciel is bound to see the principal. But wait… If the the principal knows he is being persued, what if he knows Ciel is the persuer? I have a feeling things are going to explode in the next few chapters.

 Man, this manga is beautiful. If only the anime stuck to the manga more closely instead of turning it into a boob party. This story is clearly more Shoujo than Shounen even though it was originally labeled under Shounen!
But then again, I loved 2nd season of the anime. Alois Trauncy… Sigh, I love him.

#223 Kuroshitsuji Movie?

Posted in Kuroshitsuji, Manga with tags , , , , , , on December 19, 2012 by Lee T

I should actually be writing up about Naruto but I spent yesterday rolling around distressed about it, watching Family Guy, and playing Kaiser. I was also watching Sword Art Online in which I will write up a review much later as soon as I decipher what the main character’s intentions are.

Kuroshitsuji chapter 76: That Butler, Manoeuvres [read here]

First page suggests a movie… maybe? This link was included on the first page along with “The Most Beautiful DEATH in the World”. Whatever it is, it’s coming May 2013! If it’s a movie, we won’t be able to see it until probably later that year due to the wait of the release in DVD/Blu-ray.

Oh well, onto the chapter.

As an American, I have no idea what this game of cricket is. Something about a flat paddle, knocking something over, and running around in a circle? I can’t even understand baseball… Or American football… I don’t watch sports. Tbh, when stories start talking about sports, I don’t really pay attention to what’s going on. I just watch expressions of the characters.

Luckily, Bard is here to explain this game to the Japanese audience. Glad to see the Phantomhive servants again. Well, except Snake who didn’t come. He hasn’t really been around that long anyway.

And here, I was hoping to see Ciel actually show some sport skills. Instead, he does something down right sinister.

But then again, we should expect he would do such a thing. He’s evil. He kills people. He has no mercy.

And Mr. Tanaka knows about it! You can’t rule him out as a filler character anymore since 2 arcs ago! He is is also a butler of the Phantomhive household.

Okay, bye now! I want to review Sword Art Online anime next. I just can’t really wrap my head around some things as of episode 5. Expect it in a week.
