Gentle reminder that Sebastian is probably made to intentionally look very similar, if not almost a dead ringer for Papa Phantomhive because the devil can take on many forms to tempt people into evil, and what form is more apt to tempt Ciel than to have the face of his beloved father?
(Was this ever mentioned canonly though? Wait, so does that make Sebastian the devil version of Vincent Phantomhive?? )
This is the first time I find myself having to reblog my own blog, but I am getting two very different answers that a) Yana-sensei said “it was unintentional” VS b) “Yana sensei said they are similiar but never mentioned why”. As none of those had actual source links to back it up, I decided to do my own research because I need to know things… FOR FANDOM! (
even though I am not quite in the Black Butler fandom but it’s OK because Sebby is YES, MY LORD!). Unfortunately, despite spending 125++ pages* on Yana-sensei’s blog I am still unable to flush out that particular entry that mentions their similarities.
I did, however, find this page that mentions her words as a quotation, and I quote:
Which I believe translates to "Vincent and Sebastian look similiar for some reason, that was intentional.”
…so assuming whoever was asking that question was quoting accurately, (would still prefer to link to blog entry for sure), my thoughts above would still qualify as legitimate food for thought until new information comes in. Mm hmf!
We now return you to your regular less tedious kind of fanning.
p.s: Random Trivia, but the name “Vincent” actually only appeared on Yana-sensei’s blog like, FIVE TIMES in over 100 pages or so I’ve scrolled through. Aye, they really should have search engines for blogs.
