Honestly I'm very disappointed
22 July 2017 | by iTwalkersSee all my reviews

First of all I really loved and a big fan of the anime and manga.

When I heard one of my favorite anime and manga will be made into live-action. I am so thrilled. I can not wait to see it. Even I know mostly whatever it is being adapted not as good as the original one. But I'm still so thrilled by that announcement.

Then another announcement came out Ciel Phantomhive is played by a girl. and I'm like "what the...??" "NO F WAY!!" (Yeah I know in the anime Ciel is voiced by a woman)

When the movie came out, me and my friends, my fellow Kuroshitsuji fans, were so excited. We watched it together. Then TADA!! We were so disappointed.

Turn out the announcement is true. Film changes the setting and the character. The setting of the original manga which was set in 19th-century London to an unnamed Eastern nation in the year 2020. The character Ciel Phantomhive is replaced by Ayame Goriki play as Shiori Genpo, a descendant of the prestigious aristocratic family Phantomhive. She'll be playing a girl who assumes a male disguise named Kiyoharu.

AND that is my biggest disappointment. Earl Kiyohara Genpu replacing Earl Ciel Phantomhive. I mean, WHY???? I know it's kind of silly but COME ON I just want to see Ciel in a live-action version because he's my second favorite (anime and or manga) character after Sebby of course.

There is something that feels off too. I can't explain what it is, maybe the story or maybe the character or something else I don't know. Well at least my friends is agreed with me.

Rating: 6/10 (Well, because Kuroshitsuji still my favorite anime and manga and Mizushima Hiro is one of my favorite actor)
