Surprise, surprise…well, it’s not much of a surprise to those who have known but it is to me. Didn’t know that there was a Kuroshitsuji OVA in works at all until earlier today – and it’s out, bundled together in the volume 9 of the main series’ DVD. I’d prefer a season two actually but I’m content with the OVA just for now while waiting for the second season to unfold somewhere in the future.
I’m not quite sure what’s going on in the OVA but it seems that Ciel and co. are acting in the Phantomhive Toy Company’s production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Even most of the side characters appear in this one – Lau and Ranmao, Grell the flamboyant grim reaper who has a thing for Sebastian, Grell’s boss William T. Spears, the Undertaker, Soma the Indian prince and his curry-extraordinaire servant Agni, and even a certain duke who had a thing for Ciel’s female disguise (Ciel disguised as a girl while investigating a case in which the duke’s involved in. Not sure which episode though). Heck, that duke seems attracted to Ciel during the play as well not realising that he was the cute girl that he had captured previously. And seeing as all the funny lot are involved in the play, needless to say it didn’t go as planned…in a hilarious way.
