Alois: Why do you struggle, Ciel? Why can’t you be satisfied? Aren’t you happy? Even Claude is rushing around to save you.
Alois may have been a demented, sadistic and promiscuous boy, but the OVA and a few sad moments like this really proves that, in reality, he’s just a battered and bruised child. Clinging onto someone, desperately, despite knowing they only want you for your soul. Relying on them totally, for all the love and support you never had, though they don’t supply you with it, and then to watch them, that last string of hope, being whisked away by someone who’s suffered your same fate but is everything you’re not- To me, he truly was a victim, to the end. His acts were inexcusable, but his pain was substantial.
Yup. I’m probably the only nerd out there that psycho-analyzes fictional characters, much less ones from anime or manga.
