TL By Pada
Resort! Resort! We’re on cloud nine!
Resort! Resort! We’re on cloud nine!
It’s amazing, isn’t it, Meirin? Doesn’t it move you?
It truly does!
To think that we’d be taken along to Her Majesty’s own resort!
Our young master definitely has his good side, too.
They really are in high spirits, are they not?
It seems they are thanking you, kind Young Master.
It would be problematic if we left them behind at the mansion and they ended up destroying it.
This is the village entrance.
I forgot to mention it, but this is the planned construction site for the resort.
Young Master…
His Butler,
A trip?
In this season?
Sebastian, do you know of a pastime called “bear baiting”?
Charlotte Cake
The phrase has a most fun and pleasant ring to it. The truth, however, is quite different.
The bears are tied up, whipped, and have packs of wild dogs set upon them
until, finally, they are killed.
That is so incredibly like humans.
It was banned under the Cruelty to Animals Act of 1835.
However, a loophole remained.
If the bullying dogs were not goaded, what would happen?
It would become a case of one animal baiting another; animal bullying, so to speak.
There is a village where they do that.
It’s famous for raising hunting dogs. However, beneath that, it has another side…
This wrenches at Her Majesty’s heart,
therefore we are to investigate this village under the pretext of making it her resort.
That is the true goal of this trip.
A village of dogs, huh?
What is it?
It was just that I had believed securing a resort location
was somewhat beneath you, Young Master.
There is something;
a reason why I, the Phantomhive, must be the one to go to this Houndsworth Village.
Yay! First villager, spotted!
Tanaka, stop for a moment!
I’ll help you, Miss.
Y—You shouldn’t do that, Finny! If you’re not careful, the baby inside will be hu—
I’m so sorry!
Is the baby all right?
You know, this little one was eaten by that.
The small, white-haired dog is a good dog.
The black dog is a bad, disobedient dog.
I’ve heard there are quite a few people in this village who were murdered or are missing.
The population of the village has decreased by a third in the last ten years.
Investigating and resolving this situation is one of the jobs I was given.
It’ll eat you down to the bone.
Now, that’s a bit more like it!
Lie down!
Okay, boy! Good boy!
Ah. It’s as if he’s coddling me as well!
Bending their wills via a carrot and stick approach
You’re such a good boy!
instils obedience in them.
Such a wonderful scene, is it not?
However, the dogs themselves are also to blame.
Doing everything they can to court humans
and gladly accepting a collar around their neck…
It is a completely unfathomable concept to me.
If you have something you want to say, then spill it.
Well then, heeding your words, I shall.
While I am quite a cat person, I do not like dogs.
Actually, I detest them.
Would you be the Phantomhive party?
Welcome to Barrymore Castle.
The master is awaiting your arrival.
Wh—What a pretty lady!
This way, please.
What’s with this little Chihuahua? I was told to welcome the Queen’s envoy!
Angela, are you not even capable of something as simple as that?
What are you doing, you Doberman?
Are you trying to bite back at me?
Let me go, you!
I am the one who ordered him.
I’m assuming the letter was delivered.
I am Ciel Phantomhive.
Are you saying this little Toy Poodle is the Queen’s envoy?
Are smaller dogs not acceptable to you,
Lord Henry?
Stop spacing out, Finny!
Pull yourself together and start carrying!
This instant!
I shall take care of this.
This isn’t even worth discussing.
No matter what you propose, I am not willing to sell.
State your reason.
The curse.
The curse?
In this village, where man and dog have lived together since antiquity,
there is a curse against those who would try to get their paws on it;
a fearsome hex.
Even if it were the Queen herself, that would not change.
A terrible fate will befall anyone who tries to go against the Barrymore family in this village.
Oh? How interesting.
In that case, I shall remain here as long as it takes to witness this terrible fate
So, you’re the only maid in this entire household?
That’s amazing! I truly respect you,
Miss Angela!
I am nothing so grand. I do nothing but make mistakes.
If there is anything we can help you with, please let us know.
Since we’re all servants, let’s get along. Right, Finny?
Yeah! Of course!
How kind you all are.
Pardon me, the master is calling for me, so I will have to take my leave.
She called us kind!
Hey, Finny! What are you doing?
Angela! Oh, Angela!
The Queen wants my village.
You understand, right?
I’ll protect
this village!
Angela, my angel.
My angel.
The maid has seen the unwanted truth!
I am sorry to disturb you so late at night.
The young master was just preparing to sleep.
I have a request.
Please withdraw from this village.
You must not stay here!
That is…
No! It’s come! The Devil Dog has…
Devil Dog?
What was that?
Young Master, look.
Lord Devil Dog!
Lord Devil Dog has appeared!
Who is it? Who’s the bad dog?
Young Master!
Miss Angela!
Just what is all the ruckus about?
The Devil Dog appeared.
Devil Dog?
The one that will bring disaster to the village.
Those who have disobeyed their master will be punished by the Devil Dog.
That is one of the laws of this village.
Miss Angela, please inform Lord Barrymore that Lord Devil Dog has appeared.
Who was punished?
How cruel!
I see.
Don’t touch him!
So, the bad dog was James?
Yes. He broke the rule of having five dogs per person.
It seems he was keeping a sixth.
I see.
Then, I suppose there was no helping it.
No helping it? What?
This village has rules set down by myself.
Those who break the rules will be punished by the Devil Dog that serves the Barrymore family!
As the cat meows,
the small, white-haired dog is a good dog.
The black dog is a bad, disobedient dog.
As the cat meows,
the day falls.
I was sure that it would be an outsider who fell prey,
but it seems you were spared.
Young Master.
It’s turned out to be a terrible trip, huh?
What is wrong?
You were all so lively on the way here.
’Cause, ya know…
Have you forgotten?
We have come to a resort.
Whadda ya know?
It’s pleasant, after all!
The water is warm, too!
Meirin, come in, too!
I—I’m too embarrassed!
You don’t get a chance like this often!
It’s fine, so hurry up!
I—It is too embarrassing, after all!
You look cool, Meirin!
You’d probably look even better if you took your glasses off!
N—No. I can’t!
Are you not going to swim, Young Master?
I see. Of course, you are—
If you’re still able to swim here in this season,
it may yet have some merit as a resort.
Are you truly thinking of making this place a resort?
Of course!
What of the Devil Dog?
You’ve noticed as well, right?
The truth behind that “Devil Dog”?
Lend me your ear a moment.
Miss Angela!
Yes, my Lord.
You’re quite eager.
Don’t you hate dogs?
Yes, I do.
That is why I want to get this over with as quickly as possible
before it degenerates into the worst possible situation.
Would you like some too, Miss Angela?
Is it all right for me to?
Of course!
Sebastian’s picnic boxes are really tasty!
They’ve caught it!
The bad dog has been caught!
It’s James’s dog! It’s got to be punished!
The punishment’s going to begin now!
The bad dog is chewing something.
Make it spit it out!
Let it go, you bad dog!
Let it go! Let it go!
What a stubborn dog. It’s a terrible dog.
Stop it!
Don’t! This is wrong!
This is too much!
Stop it!
You got in the way.
In the way of righteous punishment!
More bad dogs!
They’re bad dogs! Bad dogs!
Punishment for the bad dogs! Punishment for the bad dogs!
Hmph. You’re getting what you deserve, Maltese.
Master, I’m pleading with you,
please forgive them!
That’s true.
This Pomeranian is, even if only temporarily, one of those serving Her Majesty.
Depending on what he has to say, I may be able to let him go.
Tell Her Majesty to withdraw and never consider this village again.
You’d go that far in order to protect your miniature kingdom?
It seems like the expression “furious charge” was invented for you.
Then, know what happens to those who disobey me!
Do it!
You’re late.
Please forgive me,
my Lord.
Are you trying to get in my way, you Garm?
What are you doing? Go and bite them both to death!
What a loud and barbaric sound they make.
This is why I hate dogs.
The farce ends here, Barrymore.
Listen, you village mongrels!
There is no such thing as a Devil Dog!
The only thing here is an old man who was bitten by the delusion of authority.
Wh—What proof do you have?
It was in the basement of the mansion.
The shape of the teeth match the marks on James.
Please bear witness.
This is the real truth behind the “Devil Dog”.
The shadow of the Devil Dog was just a simple projection.
Nothing more than child’s play.
The shining thing in the night was pure phosphorous.
He just poured the powder on an ordinary dog.
The Devil Dog was an illusion choreographed by one person.
And that person
was you, Henry Barrymore!
Wh—Where’s the proof that I did that?
Please hand it over.
Your job is done now.
It is a high-quality fabric.
Why do you suppose this dog refused to let go of it until the end?
The reason is this.
Correct. While trying to protect James, it bit your leg and this tore off.
It is a piece of your trousers.
So, you’re the one who killed James!
There was no Devil Dog?
You fooled us all!
Give it up! You’re finished!
You killed James!
You killed James!
Stop! Stop it!
Ah, I’m exhausted!
You’re incredible.
Trying to protect your master until the end…
You tried so hard! So hard!
This is why I hate dogs.
With that, the case is at an end.
We’ll leave the village as soon as the rain lets up.
Miss Angela.
Let me out! Let me out! Please let me out!
He’ll come! He will! The Devil Dog will come to eat me!
Please! I’m begging you!
You must… You must let me out of here!
What is it, Meirin?
Nothing I say comes out right.
I can't love without a fight.
No one ever knows my name.
When I pray for sun, it rains.
I'm so sick of wasting time,
but nothing's moving in my mind.
Inspiration can't be found.
I get up and fall, but
I'm alive!
I'm alive!
Oh yeah!
Between the good and bad is where you'll find me,
reaching for Heaven!
I will fight!
And I'll sleep when I die!
I live my life!
I'm alive!
I'm alive!
Oh yeah!
Between the good and bad is where you'll find me,
reaching for Heaven!
I will fight!
And I'll sleep when I die!
I live my hard life!
I live my life! I'm alive!
The howl of the cursed dog that rings through the rusty village…
Ah, the disgusting animal’s scent has permeated everything.
Young Master, if everything is finished, then please wash up.
Let us count to 100 and use our shoulders, too.
Note: A Japanese custom is to count aloud before leaving the bath, lifting their shoulders to stress the counting and keep it slow.
One, two, three.
Next time on Kuroshitsuji:
His Butler, Trained.
His Butler, Trained
After all, I am one hell of a butler.
We shall await you next time…
