Kuroshitsuji - Black Butler by Yana Toboso
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Just a stone's throw from London lies the manor house of the illustrious Phantomhive earldom and its master, one Ciel Phantomhive. Earl Phantomhive is a giant in the world of commerce, Queen Victoria's faithful servant...and a slip of a twelve-year-old boy. Fortunately, his loyal butler, Sebastian, is ever at his side, ready to carry out the young master's wishes. And whether Sebastian is called to save a dinner party gone awry or probe the dark secrets of London's underbelly, there apparently is nothing Sebastian cannot do. In fact, one might even say Sebastian is too good to be true...or at least, too good to be human...
Ah, sorry guys for the lack of updates. Hate to make excuses but yes, I've been super busy with Uni stuff. But hey, here's a mini review for my ever favourite manga. I think this review is meant for the entire series LOL.
Bite me, but I do have a maaaaaaaajor crush on Sebastian. Oh wait, he's a demon? But he can cook and he fights with silverware. Can we just forget that he is...ermmm...a demon? I always wondering, wouldn't it be better if Ciel is not a boy but is a 18 years old girl. That would save me some sanity. Honestly, somehow by watching this series, being a gay pedophile doesn't seem like a distant idea.
Anyway, back to the series, I can hardly believe my luck, stumbled across this manga. 19th century London setting? Check! Epic wardrobe collection? Check! Paranormal twist? Check! Flawed, revengeful yet cute Ciel? Check!
In short, it's hard not to be a fangirl when you constantly have a constant nosebleed throughout the series. Beware of Grell Sutcliff, even he is certainly not going to cause you a nosebleed, you'll adore him...or her? Nevermind!
And I started drinking the exotic Earl Grey tea because of the series! Now, it's my favorite tea flavour!
