A little news update for those who haven’t heard! Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) is going to be made into a movie!
I know, I know, I’m a little late in learning this news, but I thought I would still share it anyway, in case anyone else didn’t hear who would want to know.
Just a warning though, the movie will not follow the manga plot. Well, at least not exactly. Instead of being set in 18th century England, it’s set in an Asian city in the year 2020 where Eastern and Western cultures have mixed. Also, the story’s protagonist is GENPOU Shiori, the female descendant of Ciel Phantomhive. Sebastian is her butler as well, who helps her much like he did his previous master.
MIZUSHIMA Hiro is cast as Sebastian Michaelis and GOURIKI Ayame will play Shiori. As far as I know, those are the only actors whose characters are known. It is also to my understanding that the mangaka, TOBOSO Yana, wrote the plot for the movie, so even though it is changed, it should remain in the style of the original manga! The movie will come out on January 18, 2014 in Japan.
