So Kuroshitsuji chapter 91 came out! At last! And I practically devoured it- I actually shouted "No!" when I got to "Continues next month". Teasing us with Ciel developments like that- we better actually get the rest of that scene in April and not just cut to something else. I am loving this new relationship between Finn and Ciel, it's almost interesting enough to make up for the fact that Ciel isn't speaking to Sebastian. Sullivan continues to be kind of amazing, and love the new dress, though she looked pretty great before. But ugh, I am already dying for the next chapter.

In the meantime, I've been watching Kyou Kara Maou, (because I am so late to parties that they may not actually be happening anymore) and am almost at the end of season two, aka the part where Wolfram gets possessed and no. one. notices. For the sake of my sanity, I choose to believe Cheri noticed at least, because come on! He suddenly stops yelling and starts staring wistfully out of windows? Very not Wolfram. The Shori plotline was interesting at first but it's starting to get old having Yuuri's brother jump out and yell at Yuuri for wanting to live his life basically. He's so overprotective, I'm surprised if incest fic for the two of them doesn't already exist. Overall I like the show but I like it best when it's really wallowing in absurdity like the beebear episode, so I'll be happy to see the OVAs.

I am also deep into Naamah's Kiss by Jacqueline Carey and I'm still kind of not sure if I like Moirin? I don't actively dislike her, but at the same time I'm not growing fond of her the way I did with Imriel and Phédre. It's weird. I am terrified that Jehanne is going to die in childbirth though, because I know that she dies, but I don't know how, and that seems like an annoyingly convenient way to get rid of her. Raphael is The Worst and I am terribly glad it looks like he's going to be the villain and not the love interest.

And I think that's everything I've been looking at? For now, anyway.

I have to admit, Ciel's storyline is beginning to make me very twitchy. Only Tanaka's apparent confidence and Sebastian's charming relationship with the Lady are soothing me at all. (Well, those things and the fact that so far Toboso hasn't disappointed me with her overall control of the storyline, or shown any desire to woobify anyone.)

I kind of hope he's faking all the terror and feelings of unworthiness and remorse for plot-related reasons not yet revealed to us, but it's so far removed from baseline Ciel that it doesn't really feel like that to me. It's more as though this were a whole new character. Or as though the sacrifice Ciel made to summon Sebastian in the first place -- the thing that supposedly was paid and could never be returned -- was his capacity for fear and remorse and sense of unworthiness, and somehow being cured of the forest curse has returned them all at one go. In which case, I'm afraid I want them gone again as soon as it can conveniently be managed, because he's a lot more fun without them.
