BB 17-19: Did that really just happen?

Black Butler episodes 17-19 review

BB 19

In episode 17, it really looked as if Sebastian flat-out raped a girl. If that wasn’t the case, please let me know, but I was so disgusted by what I saw that I couldn’t pay attention to the rest of the episode.

Episode 18 involves Sebastian, Ciel and Grell solving the caper of a cult led by some sort of an angel. They win the battle and move on; there’s not really much to go on here. Ciel has a bizarre moment where he sees his parents in the past; I wasn’t really sure what was going on here.

Episode 19 involves Ciel getting wrongfully accused in an opioid scandal. Now he has to fight to clear his name and his reputation. Not really all that much going on here.

I was so disgusting by what I perceived as a flat-out rape that I couldn’t play that much attention to the other episodes. It was just flat-out appalling.

Day 6: Favorite Anime Ending Theme Song

This is a tough one. Ending themes usually aren’t as good as opening themes, for whatever reason. I really like “The Real Folk Blues” by the Seatbelts from Cowboy Bebop, but that’s not where I’m going with this one. No, I’m going with “Hare Hare Yukai” by Aya Hirano from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Such an iconic song, and so catchy. It beats out other contenders such as “Fukai Mori” by Do As Infinity from InuYasha.
