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

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.


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 ... ! ?

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 >.<
