I'm excited for Hiro being Sebastian, but I'm sad that there's no Ciel. I wonder what kind of plot a movie with only Sebastian might have .__.

Well calling it a kuroshitsuji movie, without Ciel....I don't know how they can make a story line :x Guess we'll have to see.
Throw sticks or stones and I'll break you're bones, but words...I'll just delete 'em.

I'm... I'm very nervous. But kind of excited. I want to see how they do this! My inner optimist is hoping it's good. Maybe they'll do it in horror movie format, that'd be interesting!

My inner pessimist says it's going to hurt. Like getting hit by a car.

I hope my optimist is right. >.>;; *crosses fingers*

When will it be out so we can watch it online? :3
My life is nothing without my dearest guys in pain.
Love it, whatever it's a Banana made with Fish. It's BANANA FISH. My biggest favorite due to the pain. Pain is good when you want it to go away from your own pain~

Then there is Yaoi. Oh yes, Yaoi.
- Yaoi is best when your watching it in HD! xD

I can't help but immediately question the production quality of this film simply on the basis that it's a Kuroshitsuji film with Japanese actors, when the characters originate in Victorian Britain. They didn't make Letters From Iwo-Jima with American actors, so why do this?

omg this better be good. finding an actor to play Sebbi is easy, but finding the right one to play Ciel.. yeah, I don't see that happening.

Well, it can't be any worse than the original series.
Who knows? Perhaps the screen writers will grant the series some substance.

I'm glad the plot isn't trying to mimic the existing one. New story means they can't mess up certain scenes. 130 years after the manga? interesting!

I'm actually looking forward to this!

I hope the makers of this movie don't let us down like some other anime that was made into live action.
On the more positive side, I am extremely excited to see it!!!

The anime sucked so the live action probably will too.

I don't have any expectations for live action japanese movies or dramas adapted from a manga. If you've seen the drama adaptation for Ouran Koukou Host Club, you know what I mean >.<

While the original manga is set in 19th century England, this new film is set over 130 years later in 2020, in an Asian city where Western and Asian cultures freely intermingle. Gōriki will play Shiori Genpō, a descendant of the prestigious aristocratic family Phantomhive. Since only males can take the reins of the family, Shiori dons male clothes and the name Kiyoharu to lead the massive Phantom Corporation. This will be first time that Gōriki plays a girl who assumes a male disguise.


Some point in history Ciel's son or something married someone who was asian, I guess would be the only explanation.
It seems Sebastian is somehow stuck as a phantomhive butler for 130 years lol

Personally I'm not a huge fan of Live action versions of anime but I will watch this to know how this plays out.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Looks pretty freakin' awful.

Actually... It says "set in". Last time I checked "set in" was not "after". The movie is not set after the manga, though while people would assume that, if you pay close enough attention you can see this is AU (Alternate Universe).

It's like a retailing with a modern take, and a different master (BOO!!!). It is possible, in this universe, that Ciel did, at one time, exist but without any of the bad happening (meaning he never met Sebby.). So it would make sense that in this timeline, Sebby came later when this new master (BOO) made the contract.

Or, I could be wrong, and Ciel makes a slight appearance at some point. But given what I have heard of live action versions of the mangas... I would bet on the AU. I wouldn't watch it though, the trailers I have seen have put me off a bit.

I think my theory of it being an AU stands. Here is the story translated from the WBs website via Google (not a very good translation).

Name of Butler Sebastian . That only evil of the character if you combine knowledge and ability , the appearance and dignity , that there is impeccable , faithful butler and the all-around . To the young leader of the giant , illusion bee family head home , husband to serve , phantom bee Seigen Earl . Name of the real is a tide Anri , in the daughter of the Cross to live to hide that it is a woman , to have a fierce wound in the past .
The connects the two of them , master-slave relationship of absolute exchange for life . Two of such unusual relationship with the face on the back of " watchdog of the Queen " to receive Mitsumei from Queen die Earl houses handed down .

And was sentenced to resolve the embassy employee of " continuous mummification mysterious death incident" from the Queen two . Was left at the site tarot card . At the same time , events and girls after another to disappearance from the city was happening . The investigation of butler Sebastian versatile , and arrive to a " black invitation " that connects the two incidents . However , it was the world to which the invitation has been shown not to step inside . Be trapped Seigen he gets the invitation to the predicament . Perpetrator of the incident and , with the object of the mastermind of the incident involving the world ... ! ?

What is up with that hair? It's kinda hard to take a modern Japanese host seriously as Sebastian.
