It seems to me that the second season is on a whole different direction but most importantly, SEBASTIAN and CIEL are back, along with the casts from the first season. I can finally breath a sigh of relief now that my favourite “butler” is back. Woohoo!
Alois Trancy and Ciel Phantomhive are as different as night and day as are Claude Faustus and Sebastian Michaelis.
Alois is a sadist who thrives on others pain as seen when he gouges his maid’s left eye without flinching as oppose Ciel. Although they both had suffered a great deal of pain and anguish (Alois was kidnapped shortly after he was born) before meeting their respective “butlers”, Ciel is not as twisted as Alois. At the very least, Ciel cares for his household servants.
Claude, like Sebastian is an efficient and a reliable butler though personally, I feel that Sebastian is much more of a likable character. Claude is as serious as he can be compared to Sebastian who can be humorous when he feels like it.
The Trancy household
Sebastian versus Claude
On a dark and stormy night, a sinister-looking man in a dark and gloomy trench coat appeared at the Trancy doorstep asking for a shelter for the night. (In that instant, I knew that that man has to be Sebastian)
So anyways, being curious as on what is in the stranger’s trunk, Alois agreed to the deal where he brought him down to the basement where the thing that he wanted is down there. Before he could do anything else, Claude removed the stranger’s trench coat only to reveal him to be none other than Sebastian Michaelis.
It appears that Sebastian values the trunk more than his life and there’s no guessing on what could be in the trunk that he has been protecting. My suspicion was confirmed as the trunk was opened accidentally while Sebastian was being chased by Claude.
It surprises me how Ciel could have fitted into that trunk so snugly.
So, it’s not goodbye after all…
It looks like Ciel is being revived with the ring (Phantomhive heirloom). I wonder, how the writers are going with this season. A battle of two butlers? It’s clear enough that Claude hates Sebastian. A lot. Hmm…seeing as Ciel and Sebastian are back, I wonder if that would make Alois and Claude the baddies. Gosh, I can’t wait for the next episode to find out what’s the deal with Alois and Claude and Ciel and Sebastian.
Seeing Alois’ personality, it was hate at first sight for me. At that moment, I can’t help but comparing him with Ciel but I guess, Alois being Alois is part of the story. As for Claude, I must say that with those glasses on, he looks a bit like that William grim reaper dude who’s always bailing Grell out. Just got to wait and see how the story develops.
Right now, I’m thrilled just by seeing Sebastian and Ciel and some familiar faces 😀 Even a certain lolicon duke made his appearance here. Lol.
It seems like this season is gonna be more into Ciel/Sebastian versus Alois/Claude. If that’s the case, my money’s on Ciel/Sebastian pair 😀
