Kuroshitsuji II (黒執事II):
So it’s been announced on the Kuroshitsuji website that a second series will be out in July 2010. There will also be a new master and butler. You heard correct no more Ciel and Sebastian; instead it will be Alois Trancy and Claude Faustas. Here is the preview for Kuroshitsuji II. There has been no official announcement as of late as to how many episodes this will be. It will be made by the same people who made the first Kuroshitsuji, so the genre for the original Kuroshitsuji and this one are one in the same.
So now onto the more important information the seiyū for Claude will be none other than Takahiro Sakurai, some of the roles he has voiced include, Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy, Kanda from D.Gray-Man, Shito From Zombie-Loan, Misaki from Junjo Romantica, Kira from Bleach, Yuri from Kyo Kara Maō, Hal from Switch, Haruka from Tactics, Luca from Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru plus many more. The main question that plagues me is will he be able to do the same job that Daisuke Ono did as Sebastian well I’m hoping Sakurai-san will pull it off, he’s not my 2nd favourite seiyū for nothing.
The seiyū for the new Master Alois is none other than Nana Mizuki, though its surprising this is a male lead character for her, some of the roles she has voiced include, Misaki from Darker Than Black, Silvette from Letter Bee, Hinata from Naruto, Moka from Rosario + Vampire, Utau from Shugo Chara! Suzu from Tactics, Collet from Tales of Symphonia etc. So I have the same problem here as with Sakurai-san I’m wondering will she be able to do the same job that Maaya Sakamoto did as Ciel, since they are different characters that may not be a correct assumption to make but do your best Nana-san!
