Well I just finished the first season of “Black Butler.” Honestly I’m not sure how to feel. Finishing an anime always leaves me empty. ANYWAY let’s sit and chat (idk if there will be spoilers but there might be so just be careful).
I say I finished it even though I know there’s a second season and two other “books” of “Black Butler.” However, I’ve been told that the second season isn’t worth the watch. I’ll probably end up watching “Book of Murder.”
I really enjoyed how everything came together in the end. A bunch of seemingly random pieces turned out to not be so random. The ending with Sebastian and Ciel was a bit… intimate. It was weird. But the good kind? I’m not sure.
The accents were a bit obnoxious at first but I got used to them. I know, I watched a dub so sue me. I tried to watch the sub but idk it was weird for me to read like British slang. I also could not get over the fucking taglines/ catchphrases/ whatever you want to call them from this show. Sebastian constantly was reminding us that he’s a demon. I GET IT YOU’RE FROM HELL IT’S FUNNY THAT YOU’RE ONE HELL OF A BUTLER. I liked it when the servants used one of Sebastian’s catchphrases. It was cool.
The dynamic between Ciel and Sebastian was… hard to put my finger on. Like Ciel was the master and Sebastian did whatever he asked him to do as his butler. But idk sometimes their relationship felt borderline romantic but Ciel is only supposed to be like 12 and Sebastian could be like thousands of years old for all I know. So that made me a bit uncomfortable. But hey what anime doesn’t make you a little uncomfortable.
This isn’t going to go up there with my favorite animes but I did enjoy watching it. My mind might change after watching “Book of Murder” we’ll see.
I’m getting close to halfway through “Slaughterhouse Five” (which is pretty fucking weird) so be on the lookout for that.
