Black butler…why do you like it?

Even if I wasn’t watching the Dub I can see a lot of problems with this anime!

T-o Where is this anime set??? You might say: “It’s London” Then why is Ciel dressed like a male lolita???? I doubt lolita fashion was a thing during any random British time period they are going for.

The animation is passable and the writing feel unbalanced at times (It’s hard to mix comedy and drama without splitting you anime in half).

Do people only like this show because Sebastian is attractive or dose it improve to amazing levels?

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.
