Wot! Kuroshitsuji getting a Second Season?!!! Where’s the OST? Me want!
Thoughts on Season 2 announcement:
The Kuroshitsuji fandom’s hype and love for all things Kuroshitsuji has garnered the anime series a second season. Seems that the producers are amazed and impressed with the success and popularity of the series debut, enough to want to milk some more dosh of out its popularity. Not that I’m oppose to seeing more of my beloved demon butler and his bratty shota master but how the heck are they going to continue with the story when Season one ended the way it did? Most, if not all thought the ending is rather conclusive.
As much as I enjoyed the entertainment value of the debut season, I equally dislike the anime only plots and storyline especially the stupendous “Angela/Ash/Loli queen/demon dog” arc. The entire arc was laughable and nonsensical. The only saving grace was the execution of the final scenes…that was beautifully done with the right music, mood and atmosphere. Are the writers going to go back and stick in the canon plots? They pretty much destroyed the Indian arc with the messy changes they made to merge the Ash/Angela bits into it. I hope they don’t intend to do that again if they’re going to animate the ongoing Circus arc storyline from the manga.
Indeed, I am curious to see how the Studio is going to pull off Season 2. It’s all nice to introduce cool new characters and such but bad story telling is bad. No more sullying my lovely butler and his shota love with stupid plots please. Anyway, the studio will be holding a special event for the anime opening sometime in January 2010.

Finally, News on the OST!
And now let’s get back to my thread title…lolz. So misleading eh?! The one thing I keep checking up on is news concerning Kuroshitsuji’s OST. We got the OP/ED Singles but never anything on the animation soundtrack. It came to my mind that perhaps because they are planning for a second season, the OST release is held back/delayed. Therefore, with the official announcement out of the way, the soundtrack finally gets a release date and it is slated to be released on 26-Aug-2009. I’ll include the info on my animation soundtrack page. So then, I’m done with my babblings and can finally *whoops* for joy and yay! for more Sebastian love….*(^O^)* (^w^)
