SENSE. THIS MAKES NONE.

Seriously, I know the anime just butchered the manga, and there's probably enough manga material to make a butchered second season, but really, if you watched the last episode of the first season you would realize why this doesn't make much sense.

So all I can say is, wut?

Well, I haven't read the manga, but maybe there's some way that they can make a second season, but I just can't see how based on how the first season ended.

Can I get a booyah?

Even though this clearly falls under the realm of "milking the franchise for all its worth," I really enjoyed the first adaptation, so I'm excited to hear there will be more!

Still, wonder how they'll reconcile with the conclusion of season one...?

Yeah, if they had followed the manga all the way through (or at least ended on one of the manga arcs) then this could work. But now, not really. What can they do, just kidding, that last episode really didn't happen?
But, can I have my gothic circus arc now please?

Milking the franchise is worst thing ever than bring to the anime world.
Evil or Very Mad Crying or Very sad

Well then i guess u should take pics of every page of ur manga, load to ur pc and slideshow them really fast, then u just gonna have it the way u like.
Sarcasm aside, season 1 wasn't so bad and a season 2 was definitely required to explain that ending...

While I loved this series, I find this decision to be incredibly disappointing. The show ended with some finality. What are they going to do, say it was all a dream? It's kind of hard to take back spoiler[the main character's death].

Hell no. Franchise-milking is a wonderful practice Smile -- in general, anyway; I have no interest in Kuroshitsuji, so I can't speak for this particular instance. Though I will admit that it doesn't sound like a great idea in this case if the finale for season 1 was really that...final.

Agreed. I loved it, but this makes no sense. That seemed pretty darn final to me.

Didn't Ciel asked if he died, and Seb says no?

I probably need to rewatch that last episode. =/ And I'm pretty sure I'm looking forward to this second season. :]

Just because a series doesn't follow the manga doesn't make it bad.
Although that often seems to be the case.

I enjoy both the manga and anime versions of this, however I am a little curious as to how they're going to do a second season..

Since when did a second season suddenly qualify as "milking"?

I screamed like the Kuroshitsuji fangirl I am before coming to my senses. I don't know how this is going to work ...but I'm interested to see how this turns out.

If Kuroshitsuji season 2 is possible, then I have higher hopes for Code Geass season 3. Considering both had spoiler[the main character DIE] in the previous season.

spoiler[Lelouch didn't die, as far as I'm concerned. I doubt C.C. was talking to the air in the last scene,] and Sunrise has said more Code Geass is a possibility anyway.
