Kuroshitsuji – 04 »

Kuroshitsuji – 01

OP Sequence

OP: モノクロのキス (Monochrome no Kiss) by シド (Sid)
Watch the OP! Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Streaming

ED Sequence

Watch the ED!: Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Streaming

Both the OP and ED here are pretty good (the ED animation is very cute), but what I find surprising is that the ending is entirely in English and sung by relatively unknown female American artist Becca. Her voice reminds me a bit of Pink, and I find it interesting that an artist like her is being promoted like this in Japan.


-The first episode somewhat follows the manga, but diverges in the second half to make the story darker and more actiony. They did a good job creating a creepy mood, helped along by some strong production quality with the background chanting. In fact, I was impressed by how good the series in general looks and sounds.
-It appears that they’re jumping into the fun stuff next week, and that’ll be where the action really begins. I’m not sure if I’ll have time to continue following this series, but I’m definitely going to watch at least next week to see Sebastion kick some ass.

  • October 2, 2008 at 9:52 pmRingo

    oh, and also wanted to say that they really did good job with the ending. they really made it creepy (compared to the manga it didn’t have any of the stuff seen after the dinner) that’s why the manga has a more light-hearted tone in this part.

  • October 2, 2008 at 10:04 pmJayers

    Please blog this!! I think this is going to be of the better animes of the fall. Can’t wait till the subs come out!!! XD

  • October 2, 2008 at 10:42 pmbabel

    i can,t help but think that the boy has a strikin resemblance to miharu in nabari no ou not that it has anythin to do with it cuz this anime is different although the character design might just be the same i wasn,t really interested in watching it and wasn,t hopin u would blog it honestly speakin but the opening of the episode got me hooked and the animation is well done so i thinkin of going with flow for the meantime.oh yea and a little bit curious about his eye it had a different does anyone have any info on it pls.

  • October 2, 2008 at 10:42 pmAzumi

    Awesome!I’ve been waiting for this! It looks as great as I’ve expected it to be.

  • October 2, 2008 at 11:11 pmxmerokox

    I would be ecstatic if you blogged this… from what I’ve read of the manga, I loved. Humorous but hints at something darker. And the visuals are very appealing so I”m pleased with the transition to anime.

  • October 2, 2008 at 11:17 pmg0z

    Please blog it!! it looks like such a great show 8 )

  • October 2, 2008 at 11:28 pmmiko-chan

    OMG!! Sebastion is so sexy >.<!! Well, the tone is a tad bit darker but I still love this anime/manga, I’m excited to watch the next episode, definitely gonna get hooked some more on this XD.

  • October 2, 2008 at 11:36 pmCherubium


    You find about this more next episode or in ep 3 depending on the flow of the anime, but if you want to know Show Spoiler ▼


    Eh? I thought Omni blogged this first episode, so why are you asking Divine to continue it? Unless I missed something, or that your asking Divine to continue if Omni isn’t?

  • October 2, 2008 at 11:44 pmAzumi

    Ah!I had thought that it was Divine that had posted this since I’ve been reading about the other new series under her name.
    Sorry Omni! XD;;

  • October 2, 2008 at 11:52 pmAndre

    This show is looking right up my alley.

    Anyway OMNI, are you still going to upload a torrent of all the commercials/promotions fo this season? I really would appreciate it.

  • October 3, 2008 at 12:04 amEspada

    I can’t wait for the next episode.
    I hope you will end up blogging this.

  • October 3, 2008 at 8:01 pmmeromero

    Sebastian actually reminds me of Neuro rather than Yoite, at least personality-wise xD. And Ciel reminds me of the Rental Magica guy in shota version, lol.

  • October 5, 2008 at 12:37 pmFSO

    I totally fell in love with the manga, and anime looks just amazing. I hope they would not leave out much of the manga scenes and make it all emo…

  • October 6, 2008 at 2:19 pmDana

    This is the only series I have been impressed with so far this season, everything else is just blah,… generic.
