Summer 2010 Anime: Kuroshitsuji II – Episode 6
夜露執事 – Yoroshitsuji – Evening Dew Butler
Episode in a nutshell
“Ciel DID complete his quest of revenge but Sebastian didn’t get to eat bocchan’s soul at the end of Season 1. Claude somehow usurp bocchan’s soul from under Sebby’s nose. It wasn’t shown how he does it. Bocchan lost his memories or any recollection of his vengeful deeds after he got his soul back which greatly disappoints Sebby. He plotted to get his bocchan back the way he was so he could once again savour bocchan’s yummy soul. Why and what do Trancy wants with bocchan, that’s open to speculation at this stage. However, Sebastian and Claude exchanged demon oaths in order to provide Ciel with a new target for revenge with Alois as the intended bait. Episode ended with Alois saying that he’ll get Ciel for sure and bocchan saying that he’ll definitely kill Alois. That’s the summary of it.”
In between, Sebby and bocchan outran and outfought the triplets in the woods. Back at the mansion, Hannah played a weird musical instrument that apparently hypnotize the guests and made them attack team Phantomhive. Sebby returns and outplayed Hannah with his style of music and choice of musical instrument and broke the hypnotic spell. So much *lulz*. The most interesting part of course was the butler fights and convo at the lake and later on, the oaths exchanged between the butlers.
At least we got part of the mystery solved and why Sebastian didn’t eat bocchan’s soul and what happened after that. But still, the reveals beget more questions. What did Sebastian stand to gain from letting Claude have Ciel? Isn’t he striving to get bocchan’s soul back? It’ll be moot if he just surrender it to Claude. Why did Alois seem so keen to *get* Ciel? Was it something to do with incident 3 years back? I did think that Alois’s dad might have been involved in what happened to Ciel after his parents were murdered so that would make his revenge plausible. But what has it to do with Alois’s quest? Hopefully, we get some answers in the next episode when we see the shota masters turn to duel it out.
