Toboso-sensei's musical illustration
When we first saw William in the comic, it seemed to indicate the shinigami world was a very formal, bureaucratic place and that Grell was a blood-crazed aberration. That is, she was violating the usual order of the "office". But these guys seem a pretty casual bunch (and Grell is the only one wearing red... while the men "creatively interpret" the dress code, she flouts it completely...? I don't know).
So, I guess what I'm saying is that the musical's interpretation, with help from Toboso-sensei, is going against what I extrapolated from the manga (though bear in mind I've only read up to the current tankouban). That doesn't mean I don't like this picture, quite the opposite, I'm just confused.
(Btw, anyone looking that and shipping William/Grell? Not usually my thing, but they look very sweet together. I mean, he isn't even pushing her away...!)
And now for something not-so-completely different.

Seems she was looking forward to it as much as I was, since she said she went to the late showing on the first day of release. For what it's worth, that's exactly what I usually do if it's a show I want to see, because it's cheaper than the usual ticket price. She also said that people who watched the Kuroshitsuji anime to the end will kind of go "Ah, lol!" at the final scene of the film. Anyone know to what she's referring? Otherwise, it seems she was excited at seeing the same kind of Victorian London as in Kuroshitsuji. Inspiring...? Who knows.
