Episode 12: Black Butler
I know I am so delayed in posting this. Being in denial that Kuroshitsuji has already ended really hampered my posting schedules, not to mention the flu that I caught over the weekend.
I honestly don't know where to begin my posts. A lot has happened in the episode but I guess the most important highlight was in the ending part. By now, you may have already know what happened in episode 12, so I want to reserve this post to all of my comments/thoughts and everything else as I watched for almost three times the finale.
But for those who still didn't watch Episode 12, summaries are here and here.
The ending of Kuroshitsuji was something really unexpected for me, which is good, personally because it came to me as a surprise. The ending was perfect, yet tragic in various perspectives. Unlike any typical anime that you can predict the ending, this one really blew me away, 100%! I swear, the night that I watched Kuroshitsuji via Keyhole, it took me a while before I get to sleep again because my eyes were like 0_0, unable to believe what I just saw. Absorbing the events of the episode while trying to sleep is a very hard task. I am really sleepy the following day, all thanks to Kuroshitsuji.
Opinions of fans are different regarding talks about Season 3. Of course I want one as a result of my separation anxiety from Kuroshituji, but if S3 will really happen, what possible plots can happen? Ciel has already completed his revenge and will happily spend ever after with Sebastian, so I don't know what possible story line to use. It might become dragging, and it might tarnish the good reputation Kuroshitsuji has left its viewers. The OVAs are good enough to fill in the separation needs of Kuroshitsuji but unless the staff will once again manage to craft a new story, I don't think a good Season 3 plot will be born.
I will be posting once again once I wrap up my Kuroshitsuji posts for Hyper Parfait but as early as now, my thanks to everyone who followed through my posts and commented on them. I really do love doing this for everyone, especially for a show that we all love. Kudos also to Yana and to the staff for the very amazing Kuroshitsuji II. Of course, OVAs, once released and subbed will be posted so this will not be the last Kuroshitsuji posts you will see from me.
Who knows, Season 3 might come for real, right?
