Kuroshitsuji Challenge: 11. How do you feel about Ash/Angela?
Oh my goodness, I detested the character. To be honest, I did not feel too adamant about Black Butler after it deviated from the manga plot-line and I believe following what Yana Toboso intended would’ve made for a much more enjoyable show. (Secretly, I pray that Square Enix wil pull a Brotherhood move on Kuro and remake the anime in accordance to the manga!) In regards to Ash/Angela, I felt the character was rather annoying and useless. I felt the whole use of this character was to establish a rather cliche plot twist and thus the character him/herself was rather, in my opinion, overdone and predictable. Also, I didn’t like how they opened a can of whoop-butt on Sebastian- trying to go with that S&M feel, torturing Sebastian. Heck no, Mary-sure, heck no! >:T
(Though it did open the door to an interesting confession with a very sexy expression from Sebastian)
Kuroshitsuji Challenge: 3. Your favorite pairing
It was hard finding a picture with all four of these characters, but here they are: Ran Mao, Lau, Ciel and Sebastian. I find Ran Mao and Lau very cute, though they’re both very enigmatic and their characters are not very delved into just yet. I would love to know how their bond formed and why Ran Mao is so clingy on Lau, or why he is so affectionate towards her.
Regarding Sebastian and Ciel, like I said before, I love their dynamic bond. The sarcasm, the cynic comments but the more gentle moments, too. It’s very interesting to take note of. Though, I don’t promote Shota at all, I like their bond (and by this, I say so on a platonic note, as two individuals who make up a pair of individuals, get me?)
