First Look @ Kuroshitsuji

Episode 01 (7/10 - Above Average)
A weird blend of horror, comedy, slice-of-life, and maybe mystery. We have a super-butler (who's the devil) serving a spoiled rich brat who likes to play games. Flanked by an incompetent cast, this butler carries out the game of his young master. I'm sure there's more to this series than is shown in the first episode; however, from the research I've done on this show, it seems it's purpose is to be a dark magical fanservice series. Overall, it appears to me the creators have a very strange sense of taste.
Suggestive Content:
Ciel has apparently made a contract with a demon. The first line is: "It's impossible to enter the gates of heaven." That's untrue; but, many anime deal with witchcraft, alchemy and hell. We have some mild horror elements.
Animation: 8/10
Characters: 8/10
Writing: 7/10
Pacing: 7/10
Enjoyment: 7/10
