Write a review addressing the following issues in the film (Please note: some of you may not be familiar with the manga or anime, however you can still touch upon certain aspects of question III). YOU HAVE UNTIL MONDAY, AUGUST 3RD, 11;59PM TO POST YOUR ANSWERS.
The relationship Shiori has with Sebastian. Sebastian is very much an anti-hero, if that, yet Shiori seems to depend on him almost to the point that he replaces her family. What does this state about the relations between children and adults in general? How do children perceive the world differently from the rest of us? Are they more trusting? More willing to overlook or not see faults? What statement does this make about society as a whole? If their relationship evolves into a healthy one, at least from Shiori’s perspective, is it really so?
Does the audience ever get to truly know Sebastian? If so, how so? If not, why not? And what effect does this have on one’s overall reception of the storyline? How about Shiori? Is she a likable character or does the audience feel a certain detachment to her, is she pitiful or not? If Sebastian come across as the more playful of the two, and Shiori as the more somber, how does this skew traditional perceptions associated with age and specific fictional characters (for example the fact that Sebastian is the devil)? Why does this deviation from the norm make one ponder broader issues on a deeper level?
Black Butler is based on a manga and anime of the same name. How does the overall ambiance and cinematography of the film allude to its origin? What mood does the director’s attempt to create the ambiance of a manga rather than a film set for the viewers? Does the live action component take away from the enjoyment of the film or does it bring a different type of charm?


The movie KuroShitsuji is a very dramatic and action packed whirlwind of events. Unlike the anime, the live action movie features major character and plot variations. The two protagonists develop a very strong bond with each other from the beginning of their meeting. Shiori, as a young child, developed a relationship with Sebastian that is dependent and immature in sense. In my opinion, a child depends on anyone who will defend and provide their needs. Children are more direct, and are more inclined to have a narrower perspective among things.
