first impression Black Butler

I Buy my fair share of anime DVD’s.

 

^-o It’s odd how I avoid talking about anime DVD’s seeing as me and DB watch a load of them (he has no internet).

Black Butler is about a demon butler who is contractually linked to Ciel Phantomhive.

I have heard a lot about this anime and my reaction to the first 2 episodes was…. *drumroll*… annoyance.

I might have to re-watch it subbed because the Dub voices are so fake that my brain is naturally rejecting them as people (I don’t usually have a problem with Dub’s).

Seeing as I have read 2 volumes of the manga I think a little more context needs to be given to this one line: “I’m one hell of a butler”

In the manga I don’t think you know he is a demon when he first drops the line making you think:“There is something more sinister to this guy.” In the anime your reaction to the line after hearing it many times in 2 episodes is “It’s not funny the hundredth time you say it!”.

The animation looks feasible and the diversions from the source are understandable.

  1. You are English, right? Yes, the dub probably isn’t a good idea because it will probably annoy you, even though I love Brina Palencia and J Michael Tatum.

  2. I couldn’t stand the dub of this (and normally while I watched more subbed than dubbed I’ll watch either). Sebastian’s voice in particular drove me crazy in English but the Japanese voice is absolutely perfect for the character.
