Kuroshitsuji

Postby Bekalou » Sat Oct 11, 2008 8:37 pm

There aren't too many chapters that have been scanlated, but is there anyone else here who has read Kuroshitsuji by Toboso Yana? It's running now as a new anime this season, as well. I'm just wondering what you guys think of it, because I find it interesting...

I'm wondering if I should follow the anime until it's done before I pick up the manga or whether I should just do it and satisfy my curiosity.

From the 1 or 2 episodes I've seen of the anime (I only watched the raw of episode 2 so I'm not entirely sure) it looks like it's going to follow the manga fairly closely, except rearrange a few pieces toward the beginning. Only the first 6 chapters out of 24 published have been scanlated, so it won't spoil too much for you, really. But if you do read it, I'd be interested to see what you think :) The manga has very nice art, anyway.

Mostly I'm curious to hear another Christian's perspective on it, since I have some thoughts but there's no one around me to share them with ^^;

So I started reading it, because Shinsen is taking exceptionally long with subs. I'm on chapter 9, and my gut reaction to it is

I wonder what the holdup with Shinsen is, seriously...
Hehe, yeah, that's true. But I like that sequence, it's still fun. And...

I've been avoiding scanlates recently (because they absorb so much of my time when I get into them!)

To me, the setup looks like just yet another gothic-cute title, but I have to admit, the artwork looks excellent. I'll have to investigate further in the future.

Story kinda makes me feel "Eh, this is rather generic, but it's got a nice twist." The art is pretty~ might stick with it for that alone.

I'm not sure how I feel about this one. At some times I'm interested in our primary butler, sometimes it just feels like a listless attempt at nothing, and far too much of the time it feels like it exists for the express purpose of yaoi-baiting.
