Ciel and Sebastian are back and pretending to be circus performers. It gets bloody…
Black Butler is a guilty pleasure series for me. I know there’s a lot wrong with it and I understand why some may hate – I just can’t seem to stop watching it. I binged this particular arc in two days. I would have watched more. If you’re familiar with Black Butler, it’s basically more of the same. Some of the characters have cameos that are completely useless and there to keep the fans happy – I liked it. The new characters are an attractive bunch of weirdos with overly accessorized and uselessly intricate costumes even for circus performers – I’m getting my cosplay together as we speak. Things are really really dramatic and motivations make no sense – it was great. Look, you have got to deeply suspend your disbelief and put up your resistance to melodrama to really enjoy this but you should. Just give your brain a rest, look at the pretty pictures and don’t think to hard about how deeply problematic those jokes are. It’s all good…ok good isn’t at all the right word.
What this anime taught me about myself: I just don’t like nail polish on men. I’m not proud of this.
