^ sebby will steal your heart Flower

I was thinking earlier, Kuroshitsuji definitely opens itself each season to viewers who didnt watch the previous. Nothing complicated to follow since they always introduce everyone in the first epi

Nothing much. Just the usual: Everyone fucks up and Bassy saves the day

OnoD could read the damn phonebook in Japanese and I would probably faint like a fujoshit fangirl....

I've said that about Sakurai Takahiro, which is why s2 never bothered me as filler. Claude

The seductive darkness of Kuroshitsuji is back!
It sure has been a while..
I almost forgot how efficient Sebastian is.
He's such a control freak LOL
Ciel has his own charm too.
The biggest mistake is taking those two for granted.
I thoroughly enjoyed this episode.
Will be watching this!

As someone who hasn't watched neither the other two seasons or read the manga, I very much liked this episode. In a sense it's more of a reintroduction to anyone familiar to Black Butler and is nice for someone like me who isn't. I do got say Sebastian is one hell of a butler. Animation was consistent and very good expect for the cgi horse and carriage that look like video game graphic but hopefully that be the only cgi for the rest of the run. As someone who doesn't read the source material I'm very much excited for the arc to actually begin next episode. Now some people may be worrying whether the next 9 episodes (it was confirmed this was 10 episodes) will be able to adapt the entire arc. Given this arc and I have checked is 14 chapters long I reckon they be enough episodes. Given the most logical adaptation ratio might be adapting 1.5 chapters to fit in 9 episodes. This is all purely speculative so we won't know until next week. Let's just hope they do justice to what many people call the best and darkest arc of the Black Butler manga.

More Kuroshitsuji is always a good thing in my book. This introduction was quite similar to the first ep of S1, but had a slightly darker tone. Anyway nice start, with Sebby showing off his awesomeness.

The animation already beats out season one.

and yes, Sakurai Takahiro is another one with a sexy ass voice.

It's been a while since I read this arc in the manga. I think it ran almost six years ago. It'll be interesting to see how much I remember.

Okay. Ep 2 was very interesting indeed!

Following this one - a keeper to be sure.

I just love this scene LOL. Sebastian and his love for cats never cease to amuse me. Great episode. I hope they can balance the serious mood with the comedy like this because it was very entertaining.

Nice to see Undertaker, as always.

Im biased since I love Miyano but I really like his voice as Joker. Sebby's reaction to the tiger was great but Ciel's reaction was the best! "Tigers are cats!!"

Miyano is good as Joker. Though I won't lie, I'd like to hear Hiroki Takahashi or Daisuke Namikawa in this role, because of Hisoka.

By the way, I can't say that Sebbi has "stolen my heart", but I do find the setting and the story to be very interesting. That is what drew me in more than the characters at the moment, though the characters are fine. ^^

Hafta admit that I am also a sucker for cats though.

Whilst the first episode was more of a introduction/ re-introduction to the world of Black Butler, the second episode dives into this arc. Even though the cgi horse and carriage are probably the worst cgi I have ever seen (and there's so many of them too), I still thoroughly enjoyed this episode. I quite like the humor of this anime especially with Sebastian's weakness against cats . Whilst we were introduced to the majority of the circus members (not all of them have been been voiced though) the main focus was Joker, Beast and Dagger all of which are wonderfully voiced. The only one I got to mention is of course Mamoru Miyano as Joker and man I reckon he really pulls it off with that accent (whatever it is). Given the nature of this arc I reckon there's something really dark with him. I'm just hoping that A1 Pictures really do the dark material (from which I heard this is after all the darkest arc of the manga). So far they are doing a good job and hopefully 8 more episodes will able to do the entirety of this arc without sacrificing too much. Also the ending was very good and like the opening quite creative. I'm hoping for good things from this (minus the horses).

Kuroshitsuji is definitely another one of those series that can handle the mixture of comedy and horror with aplomb. Undertaker is always good for a laugh. As is Sebastian's intense love for cats. And the mystery is actively engaging. This was pretty much a straightforward adaption of the manga, so my fears on Yoshino messing it up have been somewhat allayed.

And Miyano Mamoru is just perfect as Joker.

The overall tone of this series feels darker than the earlier ones, but the way they lighten the mood is spot on. Sebby heading straight for that tiger was hilarous. And with that circus they've opened up another box of interesting characters. Joker vs Sebastian who never jests , I can't wait.

ep 2 was really good. The scene with the tiger chomping on Sebby's head was hilarious but I really like the dark undertone/mystery of the overall ep and this arc.

One thing I always want to know is...wth do they do for Undertaker as payment? I know it's to make him laugh but I want to know exactly what it was that Ciel did!
