Spoiler warning! Watch the episode 1 of Kuroshitsuji II before reading the text below.

Funimation needs to hurry with the simulcast so I can read that statement!

At least they seemed to have given some thought about not just simply reviving the dead and ruin season 1's ending. Hopefully they can present a logical and satisfying excuse for the stunt they pulled regarding one character from the first season.

You know.. I kinda had a feeling there was some sort of trick to it.. but it was being depted by doubt between wether or not they will be in it or not. But that was one amazing veil they pulled upon us.. nicely done Yana. Not only does she love irony but tricks as well.. now we know where Sebastian gets his sense of amusement.

Anyway.. I'm glad they came to the discissions.. not only do we have a great first season with a fantastic ending but now we have some sort of mystery and a possibly excitting second season on our hands. We won't know until more episodes come out. I do have one thing to say about the criticism though...

Now even for Yana that was harsh.. Every author has affections for there characters after all your creations are like your children.

(this little message of mine sounds odd.. so someone please remind me to change it latter.)(I'm nervous upon what I say..-_-)

First of all - I have a lot of respect for Yana Toboso. I think everything she creates is awesome.

And secondly - this is really going to be Phantomhive vs Trancy

I respect her too, I won't deny I was alittle bit mad with the end of the first season~

And about the second part, I'd love to see Alois arguing with Ciel. Talk about the fail conversation, no way they'll get along~

Seems like I might as well be stalking this series~

Cheers for Toboso Yana~ ♥

Hardly trolling.

I wish the 'fans' would just shut the hell up in the first place and watch it to the end.

Toboso's a brill mangaka that gets involved in the anime adaptations (even with her shouta tendencies) so of course she'd listen to the fans. Besides, I really like Alois and Claude =D I admit I was happy when I heard Ono Daisuke though <3

Well, Yana Toboso and the producers made a good job of pulling off the rug under the fandom's feet. I'm glad they did what they did and not reveal anything until the actual episode of Season II air.

I, honestly, didn't expect them to pull a trick like that. But I had hoped that they would since I wasn't able to handle 'losing' Sebby and Ciel for the entire season 2. :))

I liked what they did--'coz it gave all of us a HUGE surprise, makes us all wonder what the heck really happened and this way, it's going to get really exciting. :D

Shocker, but okay. I still don't get why the fans are all butthurt over the new characters. Shouldn't they be happy for a new season?

poor Toboso-samaxD so many unjust accusations.. they're all working really hard, must be tough to handle all the whining.

Phantomhive vs Trancy - I just hope the obvious doesnt happen. It would be nice to see an unexpected ending.

Yah. When I saw the opening of the second season Im like Who the hell is this? Wtf? Is this sebastian? I was Disappointed when I watched the half of the show but then Sebastian and Ciel appeared. I was so excited but why do they need to make Alois and Claude the main characters. Im disappointed, I still want Ciel And Sebastian to be the main chars.

Phew. While I wasn't too pleased when I heard about 2 new leads (after cultivating affection for Ciel & Seb over 26 episodes!), I was sorta looking forward to seeing whether they'll outshine their predecessors or are they just a second-rate copy.

Now that they pulled a trick like that...I'll get to see both.=D

Toboso said that the aim of the tricky announcement will be understood if you watch the series to the end.


Oh really? That sounds surprising... and convenient. Let's all watch the show until the end so they can redeem and explain themselves. Way to go Tono!

They can just say they wanted to pull our leg and that's it instead of using so many words. They trolled us pretty hard... I wasn't going to watch if Sebastian wasn't in it :P

don't blame the author if she wants to change the characters. She wants to add the thrill and for a change and to try something new.
THEY DON'T KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO COME UP WITH AN IDEA LIKE THAT.
I know I am posting my own opinion but seriously, how could they say that not knowing how the staff and the author herself is going to react?!

....in my opinion, as a fan of the manga I already felt abandoned when the anime divulged into filler and created its own failure of a plot.

And I felt that way again when Sebastian and Ciel showed up in the second series.

Waaay more than when I found out there were supposed to be new protagonists.

Just saying.

Still, those "fan" letters are waaay harsh. They weren't going to be in the second series because Ciel clearly DIED at the end of the first series. And just because an author kills off one of their characters, it doesn't mean they don't love the character. :/

I love how the kept it secret and then just suprised us all. It was amazing. I had so many emotions flowing through me in that episode, i dont even know how to explain it. And i love the new characters. They're great! :)

Yes, plot twists and unexpected things should always be explained first episode.

Wow, Toboso is outstanding! Although the fans were harsh with their criticisms, even though the ending of the first season did imply what it did, Toboso managed to work her way around all of it. I was just casually watching the first episode of Kuroshitsuji II but was left flabbergasted! Now I definitely can't wait for more episodes to be released!

I agree! The first season ended perfectly! Seriously... extreme fanism hits annoyance just about every time. They need to slap themselves in the face and watch with a more open mind! >:(

I thought it was a lame stunt pulled by the staff of BB2. I was rooting for the new butler, master, and staff. And the introduction for the new characters felt pretty rushed.

So the show's going to be about the old characters again? It has the stench of Gundam Seed Destiny all over again. THE HELL??!! I didn't sign up for this!

Wow, though. I guess the fujoshi ARE keeping the creators of anime on a short leash. But atleast they're a bit more reasonable than those who complained about B-gata H-kei (and went way too far).

Seeing as Yana has been working with the producers for season 2, I'm wondering and even hoping that she has intentions of introducing Alois and his troupe in the manga.

I highly doubt Alois & Claude will enter the manga (maybe only as a short cameo).
Yana has stated she thinks the Anime and Manga are completely seperate Kuroshitsuji works and that she likes it with subtle differences in character and other things between the anime and manga~

Though I still hope to see the Circus Arc animated. That would be amazing.

And also, Yana Toboso is amazing. <3 She's so nice and forgiving to her fans.

Epic troll. Specially when I heard on net that Ciel-Sebastian won't show on second season.
But I'm glad they decide to bring Ciel and Sebastian back :D
Phantomhive vs Trancy seems to be interesting.

So, it will be Phantomhive vs Trancy? It'll be really interesting there.

I'm glad Ciel and Sebastian are back! :D. I thought when I'm watching Kuroshitsuji II, I won't see those two again XD

Still, the first episode of season two lack of comedy, unlike the first season...

Those sorts of fans are annoying. Do they forgot that she was the one who created them? don't insult her, without her there wouldn't be any Ciel, Sebastian, Grell, etcetc. Especially before the series had even started, that's stupid.

-----
Even though Ciel and Sebby are back there must be a reason for Claude and Alois.
I do hope Sebastian and Ciel aren't completely replaced later on.

Well, this statement at least made me curious about the anime... I started watching the first episode the other day and couldn't go through with it, it was all so nonsensical. But I'm giving it another try, though. If the mangaka says wait, we wait.
