I remember being excited about this news months ago. Now that I saw the trailer, I just wanted to sue the hairstylist! How could you ruin this man’s perfect face with a mop of squiggly whatchucalledthemthings?! It doesn’t frame his face very well… And how much weight did he lose? He looks like a starved vampire. Anyway, enough harping on the obvious. The movie is a loosely adaptation of Yana Toboso‘s popular manga series Black Butler. I said loosely because there are significant changes (the hair!), okay, okay, fine, fine. I didn’t watch the anime (2 episodes!) so I have no idea what’s different but birdies around have voiced that the setting is now in 2020 with the rich kid being played by a female (Ayame Goriki).
For those who aren’t familiar with the premise, Hiro plays a demonic butler, Sebastian Michaelis, whose perfection in knowledge, grace, and power, are used to serve his master, Genpou Shiori (Ayame Goriki). The eye patch on her right eye is the seal of their contract. He will serve her, but he will also possess her soul. That’s all I know. 😀
Mizuki Yamamoto as Rin. The loud maid. heh.
Yuka as Hanae Wakatsuki. Shiori’s aunt.
Louis Kurihara as Undertaker J. Ooohh. I like this getup. Kinda like Johnny Depp’s in Alice in Wonderland.
