Plot outline: Set 130-140 years after the manga & anime, the new film is set in 2020, in an Asian city (unknown) where Western and Asian cultures freely intermingle. Since only males can take the reins of the Phantomhive family and the Funtom company, a young woman named Shiori dons male clothes and the name Kiyoharu to lead the massive Phantom Corporation.

Characters/actors:
Ayame Gōriki plays Sebastian's new master Shiori. In likeness with Ciel Phantomhive from the manga & anime, Shiori has a seal in her right eye as a symbol of her contract with Sebastian.

The film stars Hiro Mizushima playing beloved Sebastian - which has caused some controversy, as the film directors have not styled Mizushima "sebastian-looking enough" according to some Kuroshitsuji fans.



Personally, I am happy with how things seem to be turning out with the movie; Hiro Mizushima is a fantastic actor. Of course, no one will know for sure until the movie comes out in April/May 2014 for sure if it is to be a hit or an absolute disaster


Your thoughts? Is an un-sebastian looking Sebastian going to do it for you?

OMG they are making a live action movie?! I'm so excited and scared at the same time. I think the story line sounds promising. The fact that it's live action though...idk. Ever since Avatar the Last Airbender was made into a live action and flopped, I've been wary about them. I did watch the trailer though and I do like the Sebastian. I can't wait to see it.

I've never, ever seen a good movie based off of an anime so I don't have high hopes for this...I am looking forward to the third season though.

Mmm.. I feel like they could have chosen someone else to play Sebby. I personally feel like Hiro Mizushima doesn't "fit" Sebastian as nicely, but I'm still looking forward to watching it over all.

I've been interested in this since I first found out about it. Especially after I saw the end of season 2. I'm curious how they will work that in. It would be a bit odd if they didn't have ceil in it.
