the comedy, mystery, and of course supernatural anime/ manga series. Summery
There Ciel Phantomhive, a boy, rich and lavished victorian style outfits with a sence of noblety, always in blue (which suits him nicely, I might add). He holds a contract, which is embeded in his left eye, with a demon, Sebastian Michaelis, disguised as a butler. His usual saying/ catchphrase/ pun is "Aku made shitsuji desu (I am a butler to the core" OR "Akuma de shitsuji desu (I am a demon and a butler)". By switching the "ma" from the beginning of the second word to the end of the first, the result is a rather horrible pun. But other than that, he is an awesome cook. I wish I had a butler like his.Cake.Moltenflower.net Sebastian Michaelis Profile
Sebastian's fantastic abilities aren't limited to household skills, either. He can dodge bullets and throw silverware with deadly accuracy. A bullet to the forehead is only a temporary setback, as is nearly getting sliced in half with a chainsaw. His speed and agility is nothing short of inhuman-- which, of course, is fitting, as Sebastian is actually a demon. The gloves on Sebastian's hands conceal a mark on his left hand identical to the one on Ciel's right eye. This mark is the symbol of their contract, and binds Sebastian to obey Ciel's commands.Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro
is also a comedy, mystery, and supernatural anime/ manga series. Both animes even started in the same year and almost, close to the same month too.Anime News Network Plot Summary
Yako's father was murdered in a locked room. She then meets a man named Neuro Nougami who is a demon from Hell who eats "riddles." He forces Yako to act as a detective so he can solve mysteries. Neuro longs to eat the ultimate mystery.
Not to long ago but long enough to feel like it was last year, I read this in it's manga form. I thought it was pretty good but there was much to do at that time and I was too busy to continue reading it. I eventually forgot about it until I stumbled on it again when I found out that the anime came out. Just today in fact, I found it out today. I like the anime and the manga, now.
But what I really wanted to talk about was how similar these two animes were. More precisely, how similar Sebastian Michaelis and Neuro Nougami are.Similarities
In Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro, episode 3, Neuro was shot in the eye and since he is a demon he won't die, of course. But than this part baffled and surprised me in how similar demon Neuro is to demon Sebastian. Neuro spit the bullet back out from his mouth just like how Sebastian did when he was shot at, not once but by a group of men. Now I forgot what episode Sebastian got shot. I think it's close to the beginning of the anime. Right now I just can't get over it. You've got to watch it. It's sooo similar is crazy.
I wonder if there are other similarities between these two demons.Similarities #2
Five minutes into Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro, episode 12, the two main characters sneak into a privatly owned area. There, one guard dog guarded its place. It was going to attack but it got scared because of the warning glare sent by Neuro. This situation also happened in Kuroshitsuji. In page 12 of chapter 18, Sebastian and Ciel investigated a mansion in England. There was about 3 to 4 guard dogs (looked almost like the one that attacked Neuro and Yako) that went for Ciel and his servant. The dogs became scared once Sebastian warned them with this eyes just as Neuro had done.
Why are these two demons from different animes so similar in their actions?
Can they also be the same type of demon?
Ok, I have thought that it is BECAUSE they are demons, other animals are scared of them naturally as they seem to be at the top of the food chain (so to speak).
(I have not restarted reading the Majin Tantei Nogami Neuro manga but I will once I've finished watching the anime. The last time I remembered reading it, I think the manga is a bit different from the anime.)
