Black Butler 101: That Butler, Encounter

Black Butler 101 Review!

Hello, Diedrich, nice to see you in chapter 101! And that you don’t look anything like your old self…! ;-; Such a shame.

Anyway, things are getting crazy in Black Butler. We finally get to see Diedrich in this chapter, and I was a little disappointed. I prefer his younger form, but hey, being a slave to the Phantomhives and having too many sandwiches due to stress eating can do that to a person, I suppose. But it’s great to see him in this chapter, finally!

He wears black gloves, too. ♥

Black Butler 100 Review!

Woohoo! We’re here at the 100th chapter of Kuroshitsuji!

If you want to discuss anything about Kuroshitsuji, visit Oro Jackson and join this discussion!

To commemorate the 100th chapter, Yana created a wonderful cover:

Black Butler has been going on for a while now, and I have a feeling it’s going to wrap up in the next year or two. Since we get a chapter each month, that’s 12 chapters next year. I think we’ll be entering our final arc after the witch village one has finished up!

Black Butler 99.5 Side Story Review

Black Butler 99.5 Side Story Review!

(If you haven’t read it yet, here’s the link to Black Butler 99.5 side story!) Haven’t been updating my blog for a while, but I’ve been on holiday vacation and just being busy with other things in my life. ^_^ But now I have some time to update my blog! I’ve missed it! Let’s start off with a Black Butler review.

I wasn’t expecting anything special with Black Butler this month, but we got an extra chapter! ^_^ It’s a side story about Ciel’s past, and we get to see more of Vincent and Diedrich in this side story.

The story starts out with Ciel recognizing a recipe for some type of soup that he, his dad, and Diedrich made for Ciel’s mother, who was ill at the time. And that’s what jumpstarts the walk down memory lane.

Black Butler 99: That Butler, Frenzy

100-Day Challenge – Post # 61

Black Butler 99 Review!

Erm… hello, folks. I haven’t been here for a while, huh? It’s been five days since my last post, and I’ve been WAY behind on blog posts for my 100-day challenge. November is coming to an end, so I gotta get back on track. I’ve been swamped with work and personal goals of mine, so I took the day off today to get other areas in my life in order, including my blog. It’s been a crazy week, but I’m reorganizing and getting back on track.

So, last week, we had Black Butler 99 come out! And I LOVE the magazine’s cover page. It’s amazing. I love seeing Double Charles colored! They’re lovely looking, eh? 😀

Black Butler 98: That Butler, Response

100-Day Challenge – Post #31

Black Butler 98 Review!

For the first time ever, I think, I’m not all that impressed with the cover page for Black Butler 98. So I won’t feature it in this post today. But it does show that Ciel and Sebastian are back in action!

This chapter wasn’t really exciting as the previous chapters, but that’s probably because everything has hit the fan. So many answers and surprising discoveries have been revealed in chapter 98.

The chapter starts off with Wolfram waking up due to the emergency alarm going off, and he finds Sieglinde not in her room! Oops, panic, panic, panic. Poor Sieglinde, though. She just found out she made poisonous gas that’s going to kill people, and you can totally see her innocence here. It’s sad to see it shattered and be betrayed by everyone around you. I think she feels super alone right now and completely… shocked? No, not the right word. Traumatized? I don’t know, but it’s not good. Poor thing.

Black Butler 97: That Butler, Curiosity

My review of Black Butler 97!

Please support Black Asylum – these guys are the ones that translate the manga for us each month, so definitely check them out at BlackButler.net. 🙂

Every month is such a treat whenever Kuroshitsuji comes out with a new chapter. ^_^ Finally, the witch village arc is moving along, and there seems to be major, major plots going on, thanks to Ciel and Sebastian revealing the truth about the village in this chapter. But I have to address the eerie, creepy, and super awesome magazine cover for GF this month. It’s amazing!

Black-Butler-Kuroshitsuji-97-GF-Magazine-Cover-Ciel-Sebastian-SieglindeAnd, of course, the chapter’s cover page itself is… very symbolic, I think. Sieglinde entering one of those witch torturing devices? Well, considering that this chapter made her completely aware of all the lies that everyone has been feeding her, the cover page is quite suitable for the events that unfold. She has such an innocent, unknowing expression on the cover page. A black crow peeking down at her at the top of the torturing device is a really obvious symbol and foreshadowing. We’re dealing with a fantasy manga here that has Shinigami, demons, and all kinds of freaks. I wouldn’t be surprised if Yana included common superstitions.

Black Butler 96.5: Book of Circus Side Story

My review on Black Butler 96.5!

I wasn’t expecting anything from Yana for a couple of weeks, but the other day, I saw a side story for Black Butler :O I was totally floored and had to stop everything just to read it. It’s such a cute side story, but it makes me sad. Just to give you a background, this story is about the main circus troupe members before they met Kelvin. It’s cute, it’s innocent, and it really shows the love everyone has for each other. They also had times where they had fun and found moments of happiness here and there.

Black Butler 96: That Butler, Encouragement

My review on Black Butler 96!

Of course, I always have to start off my Black Butler review posts by featuring the cover page. They’re always lovely and beautifully-drawn. I think the title for Black Butler 96 means that Ciel and Sebastian encourage Sieglinde to come with them. But, they’re not encouraging types, so luring is a better word for these conniving mongrels.

Black Butler: Sebastian’s Homemade Food Part One

The Fancy Food Made By Sebastian Part One.

A couple of weeks ago, I got an idea to dedicate a post to Sebastian’s cooking. They’re just so fancy, glamorous and stunning! I love that Yana incorporates the fancy food into the manga since Ciel is a nobleman, and the food Sebastian makes just emphasizes that fact. So, in this post, I’ll be sharing some of the cuisine that Sebastian has cooked up!

Chapter One:

Sebastians-Food1
It’s not at the highest quality, but it’s the first set of food that Sebastian presents to Ciel.
Sebastians-Food2
Beef Donburi – Love the Japanese touch that Yana gives Kuro

Black Butler 95: That Butler, Disappointed

My review on Black Butler 95!

Oh, YES! Ciel, you little crybaby, you’re finally back to your bitchy self! And I love it! Well, I was suspecting Yana to bring Ciel back to normal, anyway, so it wasn’t that surprising. Kuroshitsuji isn’t the same without cold Ciel and sadistic Sebastian. Again, I loved this chapter so much, just like every other damn chapter Yana publishes. The artwork in this chapter was phenomenal, and it was similar to the chessboard scene. Ah, Black Butler is like sweets to me – addicted to it!

So, first, I want to discuss the cover page. I think the title and the subtitle of this chapter was simply describing how Sebastian didn’t get to eat Ciel’s soul, but I absolutely love the cover page, so I have to feature it here.
