Booooooooooooooo! *Hiss*

They butchered it so much. All in the name of making it more "mainstream" I assume. And I haven't even seen it yet. And that actor just cannot pull off Sebastian at least based on the screenshots. I don't know, maybe this'll turn into some masterpiece. But right now the complete disregard of the source material makes me want to skip this one. Are they at least going to treat this as a sequel to the TV series and manga? Based on the articles it doesn't sound like it... I think I'll be skipping this one unless I read some rave reviews about it.

I am not entirely sure why they need to deviate it so much from the original. If they are trying to attract more audiences then the forced storyline is not going to help.

I wonder if Grell will still be Grell, or if he'll be a cyborg ninja named Hiroshi who is sent from the Moon under the guise of both a cat maid and the Kuroko no Basket terrorist (alongside Shiori's aunt Akai-sama) to infiltrate the Phantom estate and fight Sebastian.

I cant wait to see it! I dont mind that its not exactly like the original. The Death Note movie was different from the manga and it was good. Give this movie a chance lol
