Time to welcome back your favorite demon butler-rich kid combo~
|You thought first impressions were done? Nooooo! Though this one will probably be one of the shortest ones you’ll see as Kuroshitsuji decided on starting with a pretty typical chapter…|
Sebastian can do everything and anything; what else is new?
So Book of Circus has started off pretty much like every other Kuroshitsuji season with the usual ‘butler saves the day’ shenanigans, which immediately made this episode dull. I’m assuming most people watching have already seen the actual series, so it feels like there was no point to it other than a nostalgia factor for us fans, specifically for those who miss the ‘one hell of a butler’ acts. I guess I can say it brought us back into the groove of the original series, seeing as it has been a couple of years now. It’s a nice gesture and all, but I get it!
Extra Ciel (because why not?!)
Basically it was just routine: Ciel and Sebastian go about their usual day, guy tries to take out Ciel and become new ruler of the underworld, Sebastian does epic things and saves the day by taking care of the threat. It was a throughly pointless episode, at least for me and, I assume, a lot of fans. I was hoping we’d just get straight into the arc without this little episode; I mean, there’s no time to be wasted! Well, at least there was the opening animation that looked cool (as well as the opening song by SID), and we did get to see those tidbits of Ciel’s past. Next week we’ll finally get into the main story, so look forward to a (hopefully) more meatier post than this, as well as Mamrou Miyano playing Joker, heh. Until next week then~
