Omigosh, milady is so kawaii!!!
I hereby present to ye this week’s episode of ‘The Black Butler.’
A string of gruesome murders in the backstreets of London prompted Ciel to go to London after he received a letter with the royal seal. Whilst in London, our little bratty Earl ran into a couple of unexpected visitors, Madam Red and Lau. They all ended up having tea and cakes discussing the latest murder and how the police has nicknamed the killer “Jack the Ripper” because of the way the victims were killed.
So Ciel along with Sebastian and the others decided to go visit the scene of the crime. The coppers from the Yard aren’t happy to have the little brat meddle in their official business. So then, the gang left the site and pay a visit to an unlikely shop ran by a wacky person known as the Undertaker who sleeps in a coffin. They think maybe he knows something about the murder or murderer. The Undertaker is like I said, a wacko. He’ll reveal all that they want to know if anyone of them can tell him a joke and make him laugh really hard. Lau and Madam Red didn’t pass the test. I’m just wondering what the heck did Sebastian say to the Undertaker that made him cracks up. Maybe he just tickles the crazy bloke…lol. They apparently didn’t learn very much except for the method of killing and which body parts the Undertaker liked. Gross!
Phhhhtt! Forget the Yard. The gang decides to carry out their own investigation and Sebastian volunteers to jump off the carriage, gather all relevant data on possible suspects and return in time to make tea, wowing everybody in the process. Me thinks that Butler is such a magnificent show off!
The guys decided to get themselves invited to a party hosted by some upper class bloke called Count Druitt. He happens to be on the list of probable suspects. Madam Red and Seb then had Ciel dressed in frilly pink ballgown complete with corset as a disguise to get close to the Count. Blimey, he’s turned into a pretty little society girl. Unfortunately, he sort of ran into Elizabeth at the party and had to play hide and seek. But Lady Ciel managed to get the Count’s attention after a little spin round the dance floor with Seb, who managed to distract Ellie from intruding into their plan by errr..having an impromptu magic show.
While the guests enjoy the magic show, the Count got a little too close for comfort with Ciel who seemed to be cringing under his corset-induced breath. I though he was going to smooch Ciel…that pervert! But unbeknown to Ciel, the Count had something much more devious in mind. He got Ciel to his room and had Ciel knocked out by some kind of fumes. Too late, Ciel promptly went into a dream state and proceed to have a nightmare, cussing about putting on the corset. Lol, that’s one of the best animated scenes. Apparently, the Count is running some kind of underground auction, selling exotic *stuff* to the highest bidder…and yeah, he intends to auction our exotic Lady Ciel. Fret not, because he didn’t get very far when Ciel activated his demon seal eye. Sebastian to the rescue and like the gentleman that he is, carries off milady into the night. Ya Elizabeth, you did not see a pink frilly gown fly by. It’s just your imagination. The night ended with a another murder and the Count is off the suspect list. So then, who’s the real killer?
Verdict: Apart from the first episode, this is the best episode yet. Last week was a drag compared to this one.
