We need a pic of that! Sebastian pulling back on his collar and leash as the earl is trying to drag him through the vet’s door. A sign by the door just advertises a special discount on spaying and neutering….
‘’Pain tends to heal as time passes, but personally I don’t want time to heal my wounds. You may think you can escape the pain and forget it, but that’s nothing more than stagnation. You can’t move forward without the pain.’’ - Ciel Phantomhive
Ciel Phantomhive was revealed to have had a dead twin brother this whole time. That’s right, the beloved 2 Ciels Theory is canon! But what’s even more surprising is that Ciel’s brother was the real Ciel Phantomhive. Our Ciel took his brother’s name!
According to Yen Press’s official website, chapter 127 will reveal our Ciel’s real name. Luckily for us, YP was kind enough to share Ciel’s real name on their site- the Earl of Phantomhive, who we’ve followed since chapter 1 of Black Butler is actually named:
“We thought a long time about what name the earl should have. It had to be something dignified, elegant, and true to his character. We brainstormed for a long time before we both decided what name would suit him best. We really couldn’t have asked for a better name… ‘Merde’ is just so coldly beautiful and fitting.” - Editor K (source)
An anon pointed out that the carriage that arrives at the manor looks more like Undertaker’s carriage than the earl’s….
To add to this, here is the earl’s carriage in ch126:
The carriage that arrives at the manor in ch126 (that even looks like Undertaker’s hat on the driver)… and the gun aimed at Soma:
Here’s Undertaker’s carriage in ch82 and the earl’s gun at the Midnight Tea Party.
These are obviously different guns…. The one aimed at Soma is labeled as a “BULLPUP” model, but it’s actually a Nagant-style revolver, like the M1895. It was designed in 1886 but not put into production until 1895, hence the name. These were used by the Russian Empire from 1895 throughout the 1950′s….
Whereas the earl’s gun of choice is an early semi-automatic pocket pistol, like this Colt (an American company. Recall that Bardroy special-orders firearms from America….):
When people see Alois: Dude he’s such a brat. I’m so glad he died, he got what he deserved especially after he poked that maids eye out.
When people see Ciel: I feel so bad for him, his parents died and he literally lost everything in that fire. You can’t even blame him for being the way he is now.
Me trying to figure out how the hell these peasants came to these conclusions:….I..I..the..they…ALOIS LITERALLY WENT THROUGH MORE TRAMA THEN FUCKING CIEL. NOT TO MENTION THAT HE SENT ALL OF THOSE KIDS THAT WERE SEX SLAVES WITH HIM FREE WHILE CIEL WAS LIKE NAHH IMMA LIGHT YOU ALL ON FIRE…BUT BY ALL MEANS PLEASE GIVE CIEL A FREE PASS JUST BECAUSE HE’S THE PROTAGONIST
A lot of fans wanted to know about that bathing scene in Sebastian’s cinematic record…. The manga shows this rather obscured version:
You can’t tell where Sebastian’s left hand is. We assume he’s steadying the earl from falling, but… where is he grabbing? The earl’s right hand? Some other… appendage?? Well, the anime team must have had to figure out where to place his other hand. This is what they decided to do:
We will probably never know where his hand was supposed to be in the manga…. Perhaps they even just forgot to draw it in? Who knows; Yana-san and K-san might never explain it….
