I think I'm finally realising why people are attracted to uniforms...
As you may remember, Ciel was giving the audience a cruel cliffhanger last week where it looked like he was going to "off" the newest character Sullivan in the worst way possible. A tiny gun to her head, staring coldly into her eyes as he gives her a choice of life or death. Ciel tells her about how, if she refuses to use her genius, she may as well die.
|"Give me your hand! Take my hand! Don't you let go! Don't let go... REACH!"|
|I bet he's gonna say that again before the chapter is over.|
|Oh gee. I can't see this going badly for them whatsoever...|
|"That wasn't very nice. I do believe you have killed my cuff-links".|
|This could be so romantic... if he wasn't currently filling her lungs with murdering gas.|
We then get to see our funny supporting cast of servants as they finally catch up to Ciel and they start their retreat plan, which involves splitting into two teams. And we now go back to the maids of Sullivan, who are panicking and Wolfram manages to convince "Major" Hilde Dickhaut to keep calm and they now need to recapture little Sullivan. The other two maids are also revealed to be squad captains... Alright then.
|Anybody else really want Snake to fight the big-boobed maid because of that one time...|
Opinion: Not much of a set-up to be honest...
First of all, Sebastian got to be awesome again. I think it's an unspoken law that when Sebastian goes to kill a bunch of people, it easily becomes the highlight of the chapter and makes everything else seem almost boring.
For fun, I Googled the effects of mustard gas and discovered something fun. Mustard gas is not that fast-acting. So all these boils and stuff should technically be impossible right now, since it takes at least hours for the side-effects to appear.....I just ruined a lot there, didn't I?
|Oooh. Guten Tag to you, m'am!|
If I had to say anything I'm not enjoying about this chapter, and the recent chapters actually, it would be the villains right now. Wolfram interests me because I know he's feeling bad about all this so his morals are conflicting with his duty but three random women we saw in one chapter are now in charge and it feels too silly for me to take seriously. Especially since I know that none of them are actually a challenge for Sebastian, which is what makes the Undertaker and Grell interesting villains. I'm not feeling like there is a huge threat right now so unless "that weapon" is a Shinigami or angel wrapped up in chains, I doubt that's going to change much.
Manga Rating: 3.5/5
Character of the Month: Sebastian for yet another beautiful massacre.
Predictions: Chapter 100! Wolfram is going to finally catch up to Sullivan but decides he wants to be free with her, and Sebastian is going to wipe out Hitler's Angels because they have no chance in Hell of winning this fight. And since I know the writer, Yana Toboso, loves yaoi and fanservice, we should be expecting (or in Tumblr's case, hoping) something involving that next month too.
Best Part: Once again, Sebastian proved he is one hell of a butler.
Worst Part: Our only villains are some female soldiers, one of whom has done nothing but been felt up by Snake's big snake. (No pun intended).
|Extra points go to Yana Toboso for this hugely appropriate cover.|
