That being said, as soon as I started, it couldn't be stopped. I was taken in, dark or not. Though... I never thought I would laugh so hard, despite the grim subject matter. I constantly found myself laughing out loud! Sebastian is not a demon who's above goofy repeat lines or a good solid pun. He may be out to swallow Ciel's soul, but you really seem to forgive him because he's so fun to watch and so fun to listen to. That and the anime will slide back and forth between a "Hello Kitty" style to something similar to "Vampire Hunter D" so quickly, it will make your head spin or, if you're me, giggle with delight.
That being said--it gets dark on the last episode. I won't spoil anything, but you should know that you might get disturbed by the darkness. And you will probably not laugh, unless there's something wrong with you, because there's nothing funny about it. The last couple of episodes can make you get goosebumps, and the end (which is the 12th episode) will probably slap a frown on your face and it will stay there for at least a few solid hours. Still, I can't take away a star. It DOES *end* solidly, despite the end being a little hard to swallow. I actually had trouble sleeping after I saw it.Read more ›
A while ago FUNimation released the first installment of Black Butler's first season. The show proved to be a fun enigmatic supernatural romp with fan-service (on the yaoi side) and a rather interesting premise. Ultimately I was left with a positive impression of the show and was eagerly anticipating the second installment. Guess what I just finished watching?
In case you missed my review of the first release, Black Butler is a series about a young boy named Ciel Phantomhive. He is the heir to the Phantomhive estate and along with the riches comes power to some extent, as he's a tool for the Queen to use as she sees fit. Cie's reputation precedes him in nearly every circumstance, which is remarkable considering he's just a young boy. Behind every great boy is a sketchy man (at least in the perfect yaoi world) and in this case that guy is Sebastian, Ciel's butler.
Sebastian isn't just an ordinary butler. Sure he can make a mean set of tea and crumpets, but he also happens to be a demon that answers to Ciel's command. The cost of such a relationship is the inevitable consumption of Ciel's soul by Sebastian. I suppose it's a small price to pay for power and influence, even if it just lasts for a short time. In the first volume we were introduced to the two protagonists and a host of secondary cast members.Read more ›

This is SEASON 1, part 2 of 2, DVD boxset.
If you don't already have it, and you already got the other stuff, then you'll want this.
The reagon coding is fine so you can play it without difficulty in Amarica

It didn't come in the manufacturer's case and the discs were blank as in no writing on them so I was lerry as it might have been bootlegged. But it could also be an old rental.Published 5 months ago by Georgeannelandreth
