~For fellow Kuroshitsuji fans, the sadness is slowly settling in as its second season slowly, and agonizingly, comes closer to a finale. What will be left of us Kuro fans? The manga is getting harder to catch up on as more scantilation sites are removing the series, and now the anime is coming to a close (only 12 eps!)! Luckily A-1 heard our cries, and has decided to treat the beloved Kuro fans with not one, not two, but FIVE OVAs with the release of the second season DVDs. While it is going to be a bit of a wait, it surely worth while as each OVA has its own unique story, with the exception of the first OVA, ‘Ciel in Wonderland’ (which is actually a cliche done in most manga and anime). Most of the OVAs, so far, don’t have much information other than their summaries and release dates, however all the seiyuus will be the same, and so will our favorite characters, in some sense. :D
>>OVA 1 ・Ciel in Wonderland (Parts 1 & 2)
(Part 2) Following the white rabbit Sebastian, Ciel wanders into a strange country. Caught up in all manners of “strange”, new meetings await Ciel around every corner. A mysterious caterpillar’s advice, reunion with the Cheshire Cat, and an invitation from the Queen of Hearts during the Mad Hatter’s tea party. While continuing his search for the white rabbit, Ciel heads for the castle…

>>OVA 2 ・Welcome to the Phantomhive’sSummary: Elizabeth invites the main character, “Lady”, to join her at the ball held at the Phantomhive manor.
