here will be all fun notes and things about sebastian michaelis from yana toboso's translated sketches, twitter, etc.


from yana's blogpost

English translation: [...] Speaking of demons, I was recently interviewed together with Okada-san [*Mari Okada, screenwriter of season 2]. We talked a bit about demons and after listening to our discussion, the interviewer seemed a bit surprised. He was like, “Ah, I see… so that’s what demons are like in Kuroshitsuji….” (lol) I might write more about my perception of the demons in Kuroshitsuji when the magazine with said interview has been released. [*Note: She never did.] I’ve never really talked about demons and their existence in depth so far and I probably won’t do that in the future either, so if our discussion about demons isn’t cut, it will be quite a rare interview. Anyway, it is commonly said that demons are angels that have fallen or that they were born from the crotch of the tree. However, I’ll probably never state clearly what Sebastian’s true nature is. I’ve already vaguely decided on what he could be, though. (lol) I think it really doesn’t matter. It’s like the ‘margin’ of a book, it’s not relevant to the main plot. Sebastian is just Sebastian. One hell of a butler. That’s all you need to know about the character Sebastian from the manga ‘Kuroshitsuji’. [...]

"Title: feeling embarrassed/ashamed

I think Sebastian never feels embarassed or ashamed, since he’s hyper-narcissistic.If anything, he could only pretend to be ashamed (lol) […]

inscription: I think demons generally don’t understand the feeling of embarrassment/shame, since they’re hyper-narcissistic."

"From Yana and editor K’s interview in “Kuroshitsuji Official Character Guide”:

Q: What does Sebastian think of the servants?

Toboso: Nothing. Sebastian sees all human beings as kind of grasshoppers. He might differentiate the individuals like grasshopper A, grasshopper B, grasshopper C, but in the end he sees them all as just grasshoppers.

Editor K: He was surprised by Agni’s ability to motivate other people, but he was actually just impressed in the sense of 'He's quite good for a grasshopper.' "
