With Summer Anime airings just round the corner, Kuroshitsuji once again held the cover spotlight in the July issue of GFantasy. Yana Toboso’s manga is one of Square Enix’s cash cows. It has been constantly in the spotlight with stage plays, a movie adaptation and a deluge of merchandising resulting from those. Not to mention, a new anime series that’ll be airing in July. One can see why the new anime will return to its roots instead of veering so far off the left field like the ‘huh?’ inducing Season 2 was. I for one is glad that the anime will continue from the middle part of where season 1 left off before it went completely off it’s source material. 😛
Sebastian and Ciel on the cover of GFantasy’s July issue.
And to follow that up, here are some scans and buzz from the upcoming “Book of Circus”.
An OVA called the “Book of Murder” will also be out in October.
Character designs from the new Black Butler anime
OP/ED themes to be perfomed by SID and the delectable AKIRA respectively.
Volume 19 is out on 27-Jun and features a character from the ongoing werewolf arc, “Sullivan”.
And this is the alternate cover for Vol.19 that comes with GFantasy’s July issue.
And the other stuff that strikes my fancy in this issue…
Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine by Akai Higasa
Horimiya – Hori and Miyamura’s relationship took a leap in “that” direction and deepens further in this chapter.
New manga debut: Akuma Ryuugakusei by Asuka Satsuki
Shinigami to Gin no Kishi: A one shot series by Irono –
Graineliers by Takarai Rihito: Chapter 8
One Shot Story: Houkago no Grim by Sanako Natsu
Why no Pandora Hearts snippets? Well, I want to cover that separately. I reckon there’s too much thoughts to share on the chapter then just to lump it here with the other snippets.
The reason that I’m even posting these is because I might get on the bandwagon and cover Kuroshitsuji’s new anime “Book of Circus” since I’ve done it for Season 1 and Season 2 before.
So then, this is it for now.
Till then, Enjoy!
