    Hey, Kurowikians! I recently purchased Yana Toboso Black Butler Artworks 1 (which I'm sort of regretting now - as cool as Toboso's art is, this was back in the days (⚆_⚆)...so the art wasn't so great; and I should've read the description more carefully 'cuz I thought there'd be interesting stuff to read...but, nah, it's just pages after pages of her back in the days (⚆_⚆) drawings).

    Anyway, while flipping through the pages and thinking about the many mistakes I've made in life, I came across something that took me aback.

    The arc names. Well, how Yen Press translates them.

    I mentioned this one before but -

    The Jack the Ripper Arc is actually the Red Butler Arc.

    This got me surprised though -

    The Curry Contest Arc is actually the Indian Butler Arc. I like this name! :D It's so much better than boring "Curry Contest Arc."

    Then I realized that there's a trend with all this: the word "butler." Although this wasn't mentioned in the book, I'm pretty sure that the Kidnapping Arc is supposed to be the Black Butler Arc since we're introduced to Sebastian there. This has not been confirmed in any way but that's my hypothesis (science term :D).

    Now I'm pretty sure that most of our arc names right now are wrong too. (I'm looking at you, so-called "Ship Voyage Arc" and shady-ass "Public School Arc.")

    Anyway, I know by the poll last time that not a lot of people like the name Red Butler Arc but we sort of made a pledge to follow Yen Press's translations so I think Jack the Ripper is going to be replaced soon. Don't worry - you'll adjust to the changes! :D

    Just curious about your preferences:

    Jack the Ripper Arc or Red Butler Arc?

    ^ I know it's weird to have an arc named after the series (again, Black Butler Arc is not confirmed!), but Kidnapping Arc just sounds so lame especially when you think about how it's the very first arc of the series. I've always wanted to get rid of it.

    So that's all I have to share today. Leave your comments down below - I'd love to hear your thoughts on these names! See you guys soon (maybe when chapter 112 is released :D)!

    • A coding flaw made everything <big></big> but it's easier on my eyes so I'm not gonna fix it, haha. Plus, it's a hassle.

    • Also!!! Forgot to mention this a long time ago buuuuut Funtom Company is actually Funtom Corporation. So Tsumi or Doggy, when you see this, can you make the changes?

        Loading editor
    • Haha, I remember when I was first told about the Red Butler Arc name, I was a bit skeptical, but I think I don't really mind them now!

      Ok, I will start making the changes (I like it better as Funtom Corporation, too!!)

    • I'm fine with changing Jack the Ripper to Red Butler, and Curry Contest to Indian Butler. We have to anyway, since those are the names Yen Press has. I'm even fine with changing Kidnapping to Black Butler, but only if Tsumi approves of the change as well. Lau, didn't you mention that Noah's Ark Circus should be Circus? If that's the case, I'm fine with that, too.

      Yeah it should be Circus! Let's wait to hear what Tsumi has to say then.
