Black Butler, Blue Exorcist

Black Butler

This is the gayest anime I have ever seen.

You know you’re in trouble when you start a new anime, and the first episode is filler. This whole show is filler. As far as I can tell there isn’t any story. It’s just about some really effeminate rich kid and his incredibly flamboyant butler. 99% of this show focuses on them homolusting after one another, prancing around and acting extremely gay. They pretend to not be gay, but their gayness brims to the surface every second of every episode. Their gayness completely envelopes the series into a nauseating mess of unwatchable shit. This show is gayer than Descendants of Darkness and that show had characters who were openly gay. This show is an insult to anyone who appreciates good acting, good storytelling, good characters, good pacing, good directing, and good taste. Hell, it’s an insult to homosexuality. It’s like a teenage girl’s idea of what it’s like to be gay. “LOL LIKE OHMYGOD THEY ARE TOOOOTALLY GAY THEY WEAR THIGH HIGH LEATHER BOOTS AND FRILLY FRENCH CLOTHES AND STARE LONGINGLY INTO EACH OTHER’S EYES AND GET REALLY CLOSE WITHOUT KISSING JUST TO BUILD SEXUAL TENSION LOL!” Black Butler should be classified under the genre of “hate crime.” By the way, why is it titled Black Butler when the butler is white? Oh, and did I mention it’s incredibly gay? Yes that’s right, gay. Gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay.

Verdict: Shitty

Blue Exorcist

The assholes of Blue Exorcist

You’d expect Blue Exorcist to be nothing more than typical shonen trash. And guess what? You’d be right. Blue Exorcist, while entertaining, offers up absolutely nothing that the tired genre hasn’t already seen. The protagonist (his name doesn’t matter because he is just like every other shonen series protagonist) is an irresponsible oaf who carries an untapped power. Unbeknownst to him, he is the son of Satan and is filled with all sorts of demonic powers. Wouldn’t you know it, this is revealed to him in the first episode, and he decides to fight on the side of good. He immediately enrolls in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry True Cross Academy where he learns how to be an exorcist. There he meets a bunch of stock secondary characters that no shonen series can do without. Also, his younger brother turns out to be an exorcist too, and is ZOMG SO AMAZING THAT HE IS THE PROTAGONIST’S TEACHER ZOMG! *sigh* Throughout his training, the protagonist battles all kinds of monsters, and eventually has to face off against his daddy Satan. During the final battle, which lasted several episodes, I kept wondering: “Where are the real exorcists? You know, the school’s teachers or the people from the Vatican?” Apparently, they don’t give a shit about fighting the world’s greatest threat, the Devil. They figured they could leave it up to some students. Fortunately, the protagonist and his brother fend off Satan and the world is saved. The End. Oh wait, no, not before they have one final battle with a demon who inhabits motor vehicles. What the fuck? The only thing that stood out for me in this show are the number of moles characters have. The brother had three moles on his face. The protagonist’s mother had four moles on her face. Whoever did the character designs for this clearly has a mole fetish. While Blue Exorcist has good animation quality and is mildly entertaining to watch, it ultimately should be relegated to the cookie-cutter shonen garbage bin.

Verdict: Bad

    I don’t think you said the word gay quite enough times. The cover and the title alone made me curious about that anime, but I’m glad I never gave into the urge to pick it up. Oh, and welcome to the LAMB by the way.

    Well.. The mangaka of Black Butler is actually a yaoi artist.. And if you judge a particular story only by seeing it’s anime and not even considering the manga then you are a person to be LoL’d at.. Someone above me mentioned he/she was gonna pick up the anime and gonna watch it, well read manga you guys.. It’s superbly awesome.. The drawings and storyline are too perfect.. 9999999999999 times better than the anime.. Trust me when I say this.. [81 chapters (Each chapter with an average of 40 pages) and still ongoing]..

      I appreciate the time you took to leave a comment for me to read. I must completely disagree with you. You can’t “lol” at someone for not having read the manga and giving the anime a bad review. They are completely different forms of media, and therefore cannot be easily compared. The anime should be able to stand on its own two feet. It shouldn’t require the viewer to have already read the source material to understand/enjoy it. And if it did, that’s a pretty big fail, in my opinion. Nevertheless, I don’t doubt that the source material is better fleshed out and more enjoyable, as that tends to be the case with a lot of literary adaptations.

    I just want to say that the last part of Ao No exorcist was filler so Rin and Yukio’s mother probably wasn’t designed by the author but by the animators…
    And Black butler may be gayish but at least it isn’t a typical shojo (it does lay the fanservice on way too thick at times…). It has fight scenes and tries to break the realm of a typical shojo where there is basically a girl caught between a love triangle.

      I really can’t understand why anime creators constantly attempt to adapt something that has no ending. They almost always fuck it up. Occasionally, they do conclude something well like “X” or “Fullmetal Alchemist”, but the vast majority of the time they don’t. Thanks for the info.

    Reading your “reviews” shows off so much that you actually don’t watch the whole anime, or give it much thought. Let’s break down Black Butler for instance:
    1) The anime was based in 19th Century England, where noblemen *always* dressed like that (except for things like bed and bathing, of course). Do you expect them to use “non-gay” clothes? Honestly, I hope not (but reading your “reviews”, and your continual misuse of words, you probably would).
    2) They are not wearing french clothes. 19th century french clothes were more…fluffy, with a lack of a better word.
    3) Ciel (the boy) actually hates Sebastian (the demon butler) because he knows that to him, Ciel is only food. Sebastian longs for Ciel, not as a “play toy”, but like you would over your favorite dish that takes over a day to prepare and make (and yes, there are dishes that take over a day).
    4) That picture is fan-art, and depicting a show off of an image that somebody else made is worse than judging a book by its cover.
    You did not once talk about the show itself, just how much you think it is “gay” and how you think that the two main characters are “gay”. The manga and the anime have a different time line after, I think it was episode 12 (or something like that), and Season 2 was never in the manga (or so I was told, I haven’t read the manga to it yet). Also, it is called Black Butler because his butler is a demon, which soul is black.

    However, your Blue Exorcist review is much more of a review (however, try to stay away from the opinions until the end), and would even agree with you on this one. The first 10-15 episodes were pretty good, and I kind of enjoyed it. However, after the 15th episode, the anime (just like Black Butler) completely breaks off from the manga. The moment that happened, the show started to go downhill fast. This is the part where Satan starts to make his appearance, in the last 10 episodes.

    By the way, the word gay refers to somebody that is extremely happy, with rainbows and unicorns sprouting from their heads (not literally, of course). The word you are looking for is “faggot”.

    The key thing you need to work on is professionalism. If you do that, then your reviews will (not guaranteeing) have much more credibility.

      The Black Butler “review” is really just meant to be funny, and not actually be much of a review at all. If you take a look at the rest of the site, you’ll see most of my reviews contain a lot more substance. I had a blog once where I tried to be professional, and it didn’t work out; I had little to no followers. Now, being completely biased and unprofessional, I get way more traffic. Clearly, people aren’t interested in professionalism. Plus, writing this way is a lot more fun.

    Just so you know that’s basically the reason why black butler is SOOO popular… In fact a III season is coming out on the 11th AND actually the manga was meant to be yaoi (guyXguy) but the manager told her not to cz it would get least fans. So next time you write such an offensive review about an anime please do some research before posting. Thx have a nice fucking day

    first of all…….. the show was meant to be about homosexuals so really you shouldnt have watched it if you are just gonna hate on them. YOU are a hate crime. if you dont like an anime, dont watch it. you dont have to ruin it for everybody else and the clothes they wore were actually worn in that time period they are not french

    I am just watching Black Butler in hope that i will see the undignified end of both Ciel and that demon. And that will be possibly only redeeming quality of this show.
