So in regards to chapter 60, it seems like things are taking their roll down after the climax onto the falling action. Essentially, it’s revealed to us that Undertaker has long-since abandoned his duties as a Shinigami in order to delve into the forbidden practice of altering cinematic records, which does explain why Yana Toboso would allow the anime production team to say that he is, in the anime’s universe, a great and infamous shinigami.
So, it’s revealed that he’s been toying with people all along and that, now, he’s set on a rather sadistic path to use his living corpses as weapons. This, of course, spurs on a fight in which the chapter ends with, between Grell, Ronald, Sebastian and the Undertaker- and, as expected, he seems very chill about this.
My predictions lie in the Undertaker pulling a fast one on all of them. He’s already claimed that the Shinigami don’t have the means to harm him- to me, that will imply that Sebastian will, essentially, have to be the one to bring him down. So, I expect Sebastian to be torn between the offensive and his duty to protect Ciel, which I am certain Undertaker will use to his advantage- the added affect of this sudden betrayal and his old ties with Ciel’s father will probably lead to Ciel being rather saddened and definitely bring about more revelations in regards to the Phantomhives. I also get the feeling that William may end up having to show up to aid Grell and Ronald (begrudgingly, of course). Whelp, that’s my two cents- Now to entertain myself with AoEx and No. 6 until next month!
Oh snaps, things are getting good in the zombie infested Titanic of Kuroshitsuji. Man, as if Yana Toboso isn’t bad enough at teasing her fans, now even the scanlators are messing with my mind, posting up teasers. I’m really eager to get the next chapter in a few hours- I want to see why exactly Elizabeth is going to say something along the lines of “I really wanted to stay cute for you until the very end.”
Hurm. I almost wouldn’t mind Lizzy dying, to be honest. Now, before you maul me, reader, it’s simply because I dislike her excessive hyperactivity and her inability to act mature or independent. She has no backbone, which I dislike in one of the only females of Kuro. But at the same time, if Lizzy died Ciel would be horrified. Hmm, I don’t think he loves her as a boy would a girl, nor a man to a woman, but as a sister or dear friend. Her death would destroy him.
Alas! No more speculation! I shall receive the next scanlation in an hour or so! :D
Kuroshitsuji Challenge: 12. Akuma, Reaper or angel?
I actually find the shinigami very interesting. They all have very unique looks and distinct personalities, and their eyes all have a certain uniqueness that distinguishes them that I like quite a bit. Grell is obviously a tad flamboyant, but I find Ronald very interesting and William can have his moments, too! Besides, I despised Angela/Ash, and I found Hannah and Claude a tad distasteful so majority rules- I seem to prefer the glasses-wielding shinigami over all others in the series!
