I'm curious how Alois will sound with Luci Christian voicing him. I'd imagine a serious/crazy-sounding Hunny?

The specials? I will buy season 2 then since it will have them. I will wait until Kuroshtsuji season 1 complete collection or until it eventually hits the [S.A.V.E] line before I buy the first season.
