Happens a lot with Ciel, especially due to his extremely different personalities in the two canons (manga Ciel and anime Ciel have a lot of differrences). This also happens with a few other characters, but to a lesser degree.
Some people think he actually cares about others, and other people think he does not care at all about others or even hates them.
Some people consider Ciel to be asexual, but other fans think he is gay or bisexual.
Snake. Does he only repeat what his snake friends say, or can he speak for himself and just chooses not toout of shyness? It's worth noting that he has spoken for himself a handful of times in the manga, the first time being this◊ panel in an early chapter.
The Hellhound. Is he sapient, or does he only have the mind of a dog?
Finny's backstory includes him being locked in a stone room and experimented on for an undetermined amount of time. The amount of times he complains about this? ZERO. This may be because he has come to terms with the fact that it's all in the past now, and can't hurt him any longer. Why do you think he fights so hard to be the very best gardener he can be for the Phantomhive family? He will do anything to keep experiencing the glorious outdoors he was denied for so many years.
Every character with a Dark and Troubled Past is subjected to this except for Ciel. Ciel's other servants are a mild example, as well as Madam Red were it not for the fact that her past drove her to become a serial killer and the circus kids.
Grell as well, to some. She's a MtF transsexual and everyone in the series is rude towards her (including using male pronouns constantly). She doesn't seem to care at all, though. Though you have to wonder if she'll ever give up on her "true love", Sebastian (who repeatedly and often violently turns down her affections).
Actually, given the reveal that all the Shinigami were humans that were driven to suicide and are being punished by constantly being exposed to and working with death, every Shinigami could now fall into this.
Arc Fatigue: The manga's arcs just seem to get longer as the time goes on, with the two initial arcs of Jack the Ripper and the Book of Circus ranging from short to decently long without getting annoying. The problem began later on:
The Campagnia Ship Arc was long, it but revealed some twists, important characters and their development, and began a potential long-running background plot so the length could be excused.
The Weston College Arc was the beginning of a downfall. The arc was long and took place in a school, bringing a lot of boring chores that generally were not found in the manga before, and involved a sub-plot to reveal a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing which could've been cut without impacting the main plot. The kicker came when the mission was stalled to involve a Tournament Arc in the middle of it; it was necessary to advance the plot, but it prolonged the arc to the point of the reader getting exhausted.
The Emerald Witch Arc in Germany was a mixture. While the arc brought forth some interesting aspects, the slow pacing made it feel like nobody really got closer to anything. The fact it lasted about twenty chapters (and is currently the second longest arc) does not help.
While people are happy to finally see what happened to Ciel prior to summoning Sebastian, the entire flashback lasted more than a year into the Blue Cult arc, just after some major reveals happened in the manga's present day. It gets to the point where some fans are counting down the chapters until the main story comes back.
Author's Saving Throw: For the fans of the manga who had low opinions of the entire second season of the anime and the latter half of the first for not actually being an adaption of its source material - the third season "Book of Circus" is definitely this. It is completely ignoring all the anime original elements of the previous seasons (thus acting as though the second season never happened) and is a very faithful adaptation of the fan-favorite "Noah's Arc Circus" storyline. It was then followed by an adaptation of the Murder Mystery Arc called "Book of Murder" which was also well received by the fans.
For those tired of the Arc Fatigue, The Blue Cult arc zigzags it by making sure there's a Wham Episode or other exciting event once every five chapters at minimum.
Awesome Art: How about all of it? Yana Toboso's (and her assistants') attention to detail does not go unnoticed by fans.
Maurice Cole, and his storyline in the manga. On one side it's seen as a humorous little break from the story, especially because the previous arc was action-packed. People on this side tend to believe Maurice is an interesting, good looking character that you're meant to Love to Hate, who's unique and complex in his own right. On the other hand, people view his storyline as a complete waste of time that provided absolutely nothing to an already slow plot, view the whole "unmasking the beautiful, popular student as a hideous, make-up wearing bully" as trite, overdone Wish Fulfillment, consider the character an asshole for what seemed like the orchestration of an Attempted Rape, and would prefer to ignore his entire existence.
Episode seven of season 2 seems to have caused this for Ciel. Fans are divided between those who approve of his murder of Alois, like him better for it, and feel it was perfectly in line with his character and those who feel he went past the Moral Event Horizon and either actively dislike him or can't decide how they feel.
Is Elizabeth's reveal as a badass a good character saving moment? People are either welcoming of the Character Development to downright ecstatic. However there are also SEVERAL tl;dr paragraphs on how stupid/what a Flat Character Lizzie is. Lizzie herself has had flak for this from the beginning, though, with people either viewing her as a Love Interest who's annoying and has no redeeming qualities, or fans of her who think she's cute, provides refreshing comedy, and is necessary to Ciel's character. Of course, it does seem as though a lot of her detractors are Sebastian/Ciel shippers...
Sebastian and Ciel, the main characters, are also both notorious divisive now, particularly for those who are reading the manga and have gone through now 100 chapters and counting of little to no character development.
Now that Two Ciel's theory has been proven, the true Ciel Phantomhive has become a hugeBase-Breaking Character. There's roughly three major camps for him: one group hates him and wishes he didn't exist, one group dislikes the character but is very happy that he existsnote (By and large these are the people who liked that Two Ciel's theory is true, but believe that the true Ciel killed Agni and thus view him as a villain), and one group loves the character and loves that he exists.
Team Phantomhive and Team Trancy. The manga lovers and anime lovers.
The Weston High Arc. The fanbase seems to be fractured on this arc, with people proclaiming that this arc was predictable, boring, and incredibly awkward, what with the Attempted Rapethat's never spoken of again, and the unnecessaryAlpha Bitch storyline that some deemed was pulled right out of a 90's high school TV drama... Needless to say, it's unpopular with many.
The length and arc-based nature of the manga has become a problem as well. Some fans love it and want more, others find it tiresome and want the plot to develop already, etc.
The complex moral ambiguity- or lack thereof- is a little too complex for some readers, who dropped the entire series after Ciel murders a group of innocent children who he was supposed to rescue from the man who kidnapped and tortured them. Some fans think this makes the series even darker and more interesting, some fans prefer protagonists who aren't as willing to commit atrocities.
People who ship Sebastian x Ciel versus those who don't is something of an ongoing battle among fans. While there is undeniably a lot of Ship Tease between the two main characters, some fans enjoy this immensely and support both the two as a couple and the series as a whole as yaoi in all but name, while others argue that the their relationship is nonexistent and that the two are Vitriolic Best Buds at best and outright hate each other at worst. The fact that the ship is rumored to be canon and Yana herself is a rumored supporter of it (she previously wrote yaoi manga, althought the manga is shounen) does not help matters, and detractors often point out that there is a lack of evidence from Word of God to support this. Merely mentioning one's opinion of the ship can often lead to name-calling and insults from both sides and is a pretty good way to ignite entire sections of the fandom into flames.
The "Two Ciels Theory," which speculates that the manga's protagonist preformed a Twin Switch after his brother, the actual Ciel, was sacrificed, has become increasingly controversial as the manga drops more and more hints towards it. Proponents believe that the foreshadowing has been there for years and is too strong to be a Red Herring, while opponents say that the twist would be far too obvious and cliche to work. The Blue Cult Arc served to heat up the debate between the two sides by dropping some of the most taunting hints yet and suggesting that the Evil Twin trope is at play. The "Two Ciels Theory" seems to have been confirmed in Chapters 129 and 130.
The live action movie. It split fans who wanted it to be about Ciel and Sebastian in Victorian times and fans who were fine with being introduced to Ciel and Elizabeth's relative in the future.
Baron Kelvin, once a kindly philanthropist, became obsessed with young Ciel Phantomhive and steadily went deeper into darkness. Founding his own circus known as the Noah's Ark, Kelvin would recruit children from orphanages to serve as performers, with many killed performing dangerous stunts, to Kelvin's amusement. Those injured or killed were sacrificed for the experiments of "The Doctor," Kelvin's right-hand man. Worse still, Kelvin used the performers of the Noah's Ark Circus as his personal army and kidnappers by threatening the safety of the children from the work houses they came from. After meeting Ciel, Kelvin revealed he had constructed a replica of the day Ciel was sacrificed, with multiple children tortured into empty shells of their former selves. It was soon revealed that Kelvin had long since broken his word to his subordinates: the work house they came from was long since burnt and abandoned, with the children having been dead for years.
The Doctor, Kelvin's number two, is a man who only cares for his experiments in prosthetic limbs. Fashioning new limbs from the bones of children, the Doctor takes those who are injured or killed by the circus and harvests them for "spare parts," with Ciel surmising that he had long ago killed the work house children. After Ciel kills Kelvin, the Doctor seems entirely unconcerned with anything but continuing his work and attempts to sacrifice a child on the makeshift altar to prove to Ciel why Ciel should hire him.
From the anime:
Angela Blanc/Ash Landers are a dual-gendered, shapeshifting Fallen Angel who are disgusted with what they see as mankind's "uncleanliness". Ostensibly loyal to the Queen of England, the angel killed Ciel's parents are part of their plan to "purify" the world and regain favor in God's eyes. The angel horrifically turns multiple girls into dolls, using their bodies as an army of puppets. During a curry contest, the angel gives a spice to a contestant which causes those who eat it to go into a berserk rage. When Ciel goes to investigate their cult, the angel fuses the bodies of both of his parents together to torment him. When the Queen fails to live up to the angel's standard of "purity" by refusing to lose a part of her late husband which had been implanted into her, the angel leaves her to die before using a demon dog it had corrupted to burn London as part of its insane mission. Not even holding itself to the demands it puts on humans, the angel's devotion to purity is a hypocritical one, as the female personality, Angela, is a sadist who shows arousal when torturing Sebastian.
Lord Trancy, the former head of House Trancy, has a creepy taste for little boys. He refers to his boys as "dolls" and subjects them to beatings and abuse while holding them as sex slaves for his pleasure. We see Lord Trancy have multiple boys brought to him at one point, his intention to pick the "best" out so he can sexually abuse them. In the first episode of Season 2, we see Alois Trancy, his adopted son, naked near Lord Trancy sleeping in bed, with a cold, vacant look in his eyes.
The werewolf arc shows a lot of technology ahead of its time. It goes into Dan Browned territory at the end of the arc, the "Downstairs with Black Butler", they mention how much they researched. However, the Tank they show is clearly World War 2 era, not the believable World War One cannons-with-motors, and while radar did exist in 1890, it was an experimental range finder. They showed it being used to track in a city, which was cutting edge technology when used on planes and ships on open water fifty years later. The technology shown as is wouldn't be possible until the 1960s at least. Finally, utilizing a tank in a dense pathless forest wouldn't even be possible with today's heaviest tanks. Tanks work best in open ground where they can use their speed and range to take out enemies. That tank wouldn't have been able to move, much less pose a threat in that terrain. Defenders of the manga argue that this is the entire point; that the advanced technology is there prove that Germany would Curb Stomp England if they went to war, and/or foreshadowing for a future reveal that Germany has been exploiting contracts with supernatural powers to gain next-century technology. Granted, the latter hasn't been proven yet...
Twins get treated with the Asian tradition of the first-born one to be considered older and as the default heir. In all of recorded European history, twins were always treated the exact same way, where they would end up sharing all matters of inheritance, being land, titles, and other matters. Even in cases of royalty. Making the idea of the protagonist being more of a spare and deemed less worthy than the real Ciel very foreign for western readers.
Sebastian and Ciel are sometimes downright glorified in fanon for their more heinous deeds. We can also now add Undertaker and Claude to the list too.
Most people also seem to have forgotten the crap that Druitt pulled upon his first appearance (though it's probably because he's become nothing much more than comic relief by this point). That said, his attempted crimes now include taking over the world with Bizarre Dolls.
Madame Red often goes through this treatment. While she has a rather sad backstory, most fans tend to ignore her brutal murders as Jack the Ripper and view her in an oddly positive light.
Grell. Many people seem to forget and forgive that she was one half of Jack the Ripper, and that she murdered Madam Red when she refused to kill Ciel.
Grell. Her popularity is hugely disproportionate to her screentime in the manga.
Ronald Knox can now be this.
Undertaker as well.
The seaweed in the Hamlet OAV is an in-universe example.
Cosplaying as Madame Red can catch a ton of eyes in public, so it's very off-putting when one watches the anime to see that the humorous, cheerful, strong-willed, attractive and motherly aunt is revealed to be one of the villains and dies within that same episode very early.
Drocell Keinz, the living puppet from the anime.
Snake was welcomed into fan's hearts the same time Ciel welcomed him into his service.
Ciel's late DILF of a father Vincent Phantomhive, who, despite appearing exclusively in scarce flashbacks, came 5th in a popularity poll.
Epileptic Trees: In some of the flashbacks, especially in Baron Kelvin's meeting with Ciel, there appears to what looks like two Ciel's (Ciel originally looked nervous when Baron Kelvin approached him and Vincent). Also, when Ciel was reliving some of the memories of his torture before meeting Sebastian there appears to be a happier looking Ciel attempting to comfort him, not to mention it appears that one Ciel is being sacrificed while another is still in the cage accepting the contract. This is also furthered with the fact that Sebastian called Ciel a liar when Ciel declared himself heir, and when Ciel simply took Elizabeth's easter egg without saying much, not knowing that the easter egg she gave him is the first that she had made. Implying that the Ciel Elizabeth remembered can possibly be a different one, and gives theories of the possibility that Ciel is born a twin. The latest chapter proves this theory true as the 'true' Ciel Phantonhive appears, with our protagonist turning out to be his younger twinbrother.
Escapist Character: Ciel is an incredibly rich Teen Genius that nearly everyone loves and respects who has an almighty BishōnenBattle Butler that can grant his every wish and can be extremelyclose to him at times. The few characters who don't seem to like him in any regard are portrayed as villainous and look ugly. Plus his Dark and Troubled Past (which he was 'rescued from' by the aforementioned butler), Even the Guys Want Him, he works for the queen, not to mention him owning one of the largest toy companies in Britain.
Evil Is Cool: Sebastian may be an amoral demon, but he is extremely badass and the stunts he pulls off to demonstrate this is awesome.
How some fans are treating Kuroshitsuji II due to its writing problems.
Many fans, particularly those who are big on yaoi and pairings, seem to treat Grell as a male, although this is possibly more due to the fact that Grell's status as male-to-female is not actually mentioned in-story, and only confirmed by Word of God via extra sources.
Other fans consider the entire anime to be discontinuity, due to it differing so much from the manga.
Also with Soul Eater, mostly due to both hitting it big in America around the same time.
With Loveless, due to both of them having similar relationship dynamics and tragedies, and including plenty of Ho Yay.
Genius Bonus: In the Werewolf/Green Witch arc there are multiple references to the early history of chemical warfare. The "beloved" of the village crone has a very close resemblance to Fritz Haber, the Father of Chemical Warfare and co-creator of the Haber-Bosch reaction . Compare:  and ◊. Furthermore, Ciel's remark to Sullivan that she can "create magic medicine" that could feed thousands of lives summarizes Haber's two most notable contributions: his Nobel Prize for coming up with a way to mass-produce fertilizer cheaply, thus maximizing crop yields, and his suggestion to deploy caustic chlorine gas in warfare, adding an additional dimension of horror to warfare.
Aleister Chamber, the Viscount of Druitt, is one of the suspects of who is Jack the Ripper. He is also named after Montague Druitt, one of the real-world Jack the Ripper suspects.
Certain types of calcite glow when exposed to specific light frequencies, which is probably how the glowsticks work (as calcite was the material used in Sullivan's wand she'd likely know about this property).
In episode 9, Finny mentions the fact he accidentally killed his pet bird when he was younger. It becomes even harsher when we realise the bird was probably his only friend when he was used as a guinea-pig.
In the Japanese version of the kidnapping arc, the mafia boss has a line where he threatens to sell Ciel to a brothel. Guess what Ciels Dark and Troubled Past included? Being enslaved and raped. Same thing applies when the Viscount Von Druitt tries to auction off Ciel and he even mentions that some of the prospective buyers are interested in occult sacrifice.
In chapter 96 Sieglinde asks Wolfram if he thinks her mother would be proud of her for completing "the ultimate magic". It turns out that she is ... but the reason is the polar opposite of what Sieglinde had thought.
As of chapter 105, Grelle's Running Gag of hanging herself early in the anime becomes this, seeing as Grelle was Driven to Suicide before the series began.
The cute outfit that shows up in the dream-sequences of the Emerald Witch arc becomes much, much harsher when the outfit shows up again in chapter 135.
For some people, it's hard to ship Ciel and Sebestian now that it's revealed Ciel and his twin brother were sold to slavery and raped by the cults.
The similarities between the first anime's Alois Trancy and Ciel are even more pronounced given the manga's reveals. Both were brothers to dead siblings, stole their name from a dead kid, experienced sexual abuse,and had their demons kill their abusers.
Het Is Ew: A large portion of the fanbase. Unsurprising, considering all the Ho Yay in the series. This is part of why some of the fanbase refuse to believe that Grell is a transwoman.
Many, many fans reacted this was to the reveal in chapter 129 that there are two Ciels. This continued into the next chapter, with the confirmation that the character known as "Ciel Phantomhive" is actually the younger brother of the real Ciel Phantomhive, having switched places with his dead twin.
The Reveal of chapter 135 confirming the twins' Rape as Backstory also invoked this reaction in many fans, though in a much more horrified way.
Jerkass Dissonance: Most fans seem to completely ignore Grell's ruthless and sadistic streak and tend to portray her as something completely different.
Ciel can be seen as this, since he doesn't mind killing or hurting anyone who gets in the way of his plans, but at the same time, he is portrayed very sympathetically, usually because of his horrible past.
Alois. He has a horrible past, and as a result, the only person he depends on for happiness is Claude, who openly admits that he honestly does not care about Alois at all, and just stays by his side so that he can use him to obtain Ciel's soul, despite the fact that most of the horrible things Alois does to people is mainly just because he wants Claude to pay attention to and care for him. "Hey... you look like you're seeing maggots squirming in a dung heap..." God knows what he's going to do now that Claude doesn't even pretend to care about him any more. And in episode 8, Claude says "A soul such as that...is certainly unfit to sustain me," referring to the fact that Alois actually feels love for him and Claude finds that disgusting.
At the end of season II, even Sebastian can count as this. That look on his face when he realized that he'd have to serve Ciel for all eternity and will never be able to eat his soul was absolutely disheartening for some fans.
Alois: Although he spends most of the series as The Chessmaster mostly because of his immature mannerisms, he graduates to this level when he makes a contract with Hanna detailing that she gets Sebastian and Claude to fight for the ownership for Ciel's soul. And the winner... will be screwed over when they find out that Ciel's soul can't be consumed because Ciel has become a demon.
Misaimed Fandom: There are a lot of people in the fandom who ship Sebastian and Ciel and want them to live Happily Ever After. This is despite how Word of God has emphasized that not only are the two "the lowest of the low" but that Sebastian is a demon who only wants to eat Ciel and Ciel does not trust him. Still, with all the Ho Yay going on between those two, it's hard to blame the fans. Some people took the infamous scene in which Ciel vomits and Sebastian lovingly cradles his head while smirking as a sign of love and affection on Sebastian's part and still rejoice in it to this day despite how utterly devastated Ciel was at that time. Because of all of the Fanservice piled onto this series, a lot of fans tend to not realize how pivotal some scenes really are simply because of the sexy factor.
Moe: A lot of characters, in both male and female varieties.
Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: A lot of fans didn't like Elizabeth for being a both his cousin (even though incest like this was common for nobles of the time period and isn't seen as big an issue in Japan) and an annoying Satellite Love Interest. Then it turns out that she was Little Miss Badass intentionally downplaying herself all along which resulted in her going from being a flat Scrappy to a massiveBase-Breaking Character. For example, while parts of the western fanbase still take great issue with her, both for the existing issues with her and aspects this reveal brought up, a Japanese popularity poll showed Lizzie's well liked enough to get her into 8th place.
Done in episode 7 of the second season in regards to the Ciel/Alois and Claude/Alois ships when Ciel stabs Alois in the stomach and tries to stab him in the head but is stopped by Claude (though he struggles with Claude and Sebastian in an attempt to get back to Alois's side so he can kill him) and when Claude proceeds to completely ignore Alois's pleas for help after getting a taste of Ciel's blood. And in episode 8 Alois practically confesses his love for Claude who smiles and holds his face tenderly before crushing his skull.
Though, the Claude/Alois ship seems to be at least partially restored in episode 12.
The anime showed Grell getting a crush on Undertaker. Shortly after, they met in the manga and developed an instant dislike for each other after Undertaker scratched Grell's face.
Ciel. Overlaps with Jerkass Woobie. Despite the things he has been put through, he usually doesn't complain about them and always tries to keep moving forward. Though, there was one time in chapter 34 where he appeared to snap.
Snake. He spent most of his life in a cage as a part of some freak show, and when he thought he'd found a home in the Noah's Ark circus, they disappear. Despite all of this, he rarely expresses this, and won't even speak without his snakes.
Lord Kelvin, Grell, and Ciel's tailor aside; it should be mentioned that the writers sometimes seem to go out of their way to add as much Ho Yay as possible between Sebastian and Ciel, especially in the anime.
There are also way too many loving pans of Ciel's prepubescent body for some readers' comfort. Particularly in chapter 62, dearLORD... note In that particular scene, Ciel is half-starved, clearly bruised and abused and oh yeah, ten years old.
In the anime, there's one scene where Ciel is taking a bath. He stands up to read something Sebastian handed him, and the camera pans down for no reason. The scene changes before anything explicit can be shown, but still.
The heavily implied "Parental Incest" Alois endured. It turns out the man really wasn't his father, but it's still extremely gross.
Angela Blanc had sex with a Hell Hound. The fact that it was in human form at the time does not make this any less gross. This is one of the first signs they are not the innocent, harmless person they pretend to be.
Flashbacks to Ciel's Dark and Troubled Past are never fun, and they're clearly supposed to be horrifying. In the anime the flashbacks are worse because in them Ciel is always naked (even when making the contract with Sebastian he's only covered with a blanket). It gets worse- when one (anime-only) character who happens to be an angel calls Ciel "unclean" we get a flashback to him naked, being held by several people in a kneeling/bent over position, and then Ciel reacts to the accusation with shock and horror.
Chapter 135 takes the cake on this trope. especially when children are involved.
They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: When the second season was announced, many fans were not happy. Not to mention after seeing it for themselves. See below for more on that.
Viewer Gender Confusion: Finny. Grell as well, in both butler and reaper form. Alois is also fairly common, and Ciel for some, as well.
What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: The series has Seinen or Josei written all over it, but is published in a Shonen magazine. It includes violence and gore, murder, child abuse, manipulative sex, rape, pedophilia, and questionable dialogue. If you're looking for more lighthearted stories about them living in the mansion and solving basic mysteries, like the first part of the first season, you are in the wrong place.
The Woobie: Hannah could be considered this, due to Alois's treatment of her. Subverted when she is revealed to be a demon, and could easily fight back if she wanted to. It's implied she actually enjoys the attention.
Madame Red fits this trope to a T at first; her horrific deeds as Jack the Ripper kind of nullify her Woobie status. At the very least, they push her into Jerkass Woobie territory.
Soma already had a teensy bit of a status before, but he got hit with this hard in Chapter 127 when Agni sacrifices himself so that Soma could live.
The Noah's Ark Circus performers, especially Doll.
Even Lizzie to some, especially with how much hate she gets. Her current situation with the blue cult also does not help.
Whether or not Ciel truly qualifies as even a Jerkass Woobie due to his decisions and how he acts is a HUGE topic of debate...and of flame wars.
Sieglinde and (to a few) Wolfram, being that they were both used and betrayed by their country.
Grell's affectionate nickname for Sebastian (Sebas-Chan) doesn't translate to english being a pun utilizing Japanese Honorifics. It's changed to the diminutive "Bassie," which, along with Daniel Fredrick's overblown accent, manages to get the nickname across just as well even without the pun.
Grell's unique way of speaking in general is impossible to translate into English. Grell speaks Japanese, but likes to drop in English words like 'die' as a joking way of saying, for example, 'dai'-shori, or uses Death but pronounced Desu. It's... complicated to carry over, to the point that most translations (official or fan-made ones) just plain don't bother.
The entire dub counts, as it's a story set in Victorian England. The characters speaking the actual language of the setting allows for period-appropriate accents and figures of speech, as well as true-to-life distinctions between those of differing social class.
Complete Monster: Lady Hanae Wakatsuki is the Evil Aunt of Shiori "Kiyoharu" Genpō, who became an Immortality Seeker after being rejected by Shiori's father for being infertile. She ends up joining with pharmaceutical executive Shimpei Kujo to experiment on young women obtained via Human Trafficking to develop various anti-aging drugs, eventually killing Shiori's parents when they get in her way. During one of these experiments, the two discover a drug called Necrosis which agonizingly mummifies people. Hanae decides to test this drug on random people, including a nightclub full of people, her murders soon being nicknamed the Devil's Curse. After killing Kujo for outliving his usefulness, Hanae sets up a bunch of Necrosis pills to bomb a mass gathering of world leaders, intending to mummify everybody in a kilometer's radius.
