BB II 1-3: So, Sally can wait

Black Butler II episodes 1-3 review

BBII

Black Butler II starts with a bizarre episode about another brat (not Ciel) who has a butler, and this brat treats everyone horribly. Eventually, Sebastian shows up with Ciel inside a trunk, and tricks the brat into giving him some tea that can wake Ciel up. Why he wants that, I have no clue, but that’s our way of getting us back into normal Black Butler again.

In episodes 2 and 3, it’s as if nothing from the first series ever happened. It’s just the usual hijinks with Ciel, Sebastian, Elizabeth, Baldroy, Finnian and Mey-Rin. And the episodes are self-contained, which is fine, but I wasn’t ever really into the first Black Butler‘s “slice-of-butler-life” nor am I into them now. So they end up as average episodes. Obviously it’s going to take something special to win me over now.

Day 20: Favorite Supporting Character

This is a tough one because most of my favorite characters ARE supporting characters! I’m going with Sango from InuYasha. Even though she’s never reached an Anime Bracket Championship match, she’s still one of my all-time favorites. She’s exactly what a strong female character should be. Honestly, I’d marry her in a heartbeat. I mean, she’s practically perfect. Yeah, I guess this wasn’t as hard as I thought.
