Black Butler (2008) s01e08 Episode Script

Episode 8

H—Hey, this is…
Master Barrymore!
Lord… Lord… Devil Dog.
Devil Dog?
The small, white-haired dog is a good dog.
The black dog is a bad, disobedient dog.
As the cat meows, the day falls.
What has happened?
As the cat cries, say good night.
If you don’t sleep, the dog will descend.
What are you doing?
It’ll eat you down to the bone.
L—Lord Devil Dog!
Lord Devil Dog, please forgive us!
Miss Angela!
His Butler,
“With that, the case is at an end.”
Having declared such a thing,
this is rather unfortunate, is it not, Young Master?
Shut up.
What about Miss Angela?
We’ve put her to bed for the time being.
It’s no wonder she’s tired out.
It’s so heart wrenching it’s unbearable.
This village completely isolated itself from the rest of society, fearing the curse of the Devil Dog.
The existence of the Devil Dog
was supposed to have been a farce Lord Henry created in order to rule the village.
However, that same Lord Henry has now…
Those bite marks….
Doesn’t it seem as if they really are the Devil Dog’s work, just like the villagers say?
Maybe the Devil Dog was angered by Lord Henry doing all those bad deeds in its name.
Well, it seems certain that this was not the work of humans.
What do you mean by that?
What is troubling you?
Your little revelation earlier.
If it was not the work of a human,
I hope we won’t have another red-haired Reaper coming out of the woodwork.
Even so, I am a butler to die for.
I really am impressed by your capacity for learning.
However, there is no need to worry.
Meirin’s deduction wasn’t all that far off.
The one who was targeted was Lord Henry.
It is unlikely that anyone else will fall victim.
Even so, I cannot leave things like this.
Is this your beautiful loyalty to the Queen?
No. Not just that.
Normally, there wouldn’t be much of interest here,
however, seeing you teased by a dog certainly has some merit.
You really have learned, have you not?
I wonder if Miss Angela is all right.
A—A—A ghost?
Finny, did you hear that just now?
Y—Yeah, is that…
The late Lord Henry may have returned…
I have quite a soft spot for scary stories and things like that!
I’m shivering with excitement!
Let’s go, Finny!
Ah, it’s so scary. Too scary!
It is rather.
Ah, that tingles.
Wait. Do it more slowly.
Good boy. That’s a good boy.
Th—The shock was just too much!
Miss Angela really is quite the forceful one.
If the young master saw her like this, what would happen then?
Oh! Afterwards, it would be even more steamy.
Miss Angela…
How fierce.
Good morning.
Oh, is it all right for you to be up and about like that?
Yes. I’m sorry to have troubled you so.
Acting like that, even after my master taught me I must never, ever forget my manners around guests…
Oh, Mr. Finny, you look a little pale.
Um, I—I’m not feeling all that well.
Don’t touch me or the germs will spread!
I’m sorry!
It doesn’t look like he’s feeling unwell at all.
Miss Angela…
Cabinet Pudding.
Today’s snack is Cabinet Pudding, prepared with blackberries from the surrounding regions.
You’re quite laidback, aren’t you?
There is no need to get flustered.
What is wrong? You are making a ruckus.
Miss Angela is nowhere to be found!
Ah. It seems there are some herbs that grow near the swamp.
She said she’d go pick them.
On her own? To the swamp?
Really? At a time when the Devil Dog may be running loose?
Ah, damn!
Why did she go to pick herbs at a time like this?
It seems she was worried about how pale you looked.
For me?
Sebastian, we’re going, too.
What? Don’t you have any hot, red blood running through your veins?
Let’s go, Meirin!
Yes, sir!
What about Old Tanaka?
He’s got the spirit!
All right! Let’s go, you rabble!
So, what colour is your blood?
Seems like something to get flustered about.
Show them how perfectly you play your role, Sebastian.
Yes, My Lord.
Miss Angela!
Miss Angela!
Miss Angela!
Miss Angela!
Miss Angela!
Where did Miss Angela go?
What’s wrong?
What on earth is that?
The shocks just keep piling up!
Hey, isn’t that ring…
Lord Henry’s.
Who is that?
That arm…
It really wasn’t the Devil Dog who did Lord Henry in.
It was a human after all.
I—It’s a shocking full-frontal scene!
Did he have a grudge against Lord Henry for some reason?
Maybe Miss Angela asked him to or something!
What? Why would Miss Angela…
That’s right!
Miss Angela has nothing to do with this.
You shouldn’t doubt her!
What’s with you lot in that getup?
We were going to perform ablutions in order to quell the Devil Dog’s anger.
Last night, the Devil Dog’s angered voice rang out loudly.
The “Waah” howling lasted all night!
Hey, wait up, Finny!
All right! Let’s all do our warm-up stretches here!
One, two, three, four…
Th—This noise is…
Hey, that’s…
The Devil Dog!
Miss Angela’s…
What’s wrong, Finny? Finny!
Miss Angela!
Damn. Tanaka, hand me that.
I’ll show you my true strength.
Why is it a birthday popper?
My, my. You’re quite good at the “Shake hands” command.
However, as expected,
it is a bit heavy!
Hey, this isn’t the time to be playing around.
Young Master!
Of course. I intend to clean all this up in just a moment.
It is a scent you cannot resist, is it not?
Puppy’s Favourite. They’ll want to eat it every day! It’s Innuko!
Watch out!
The best way to train a dog is to bend its will and strengthen its loyalty.
In other words, the carrot and stick!
First, the carrot!
Followed by…
This is a bigger show than I could have imagined.
And finally,
a big embrace!
He’s not coming out.
What are you idling around for? Come back here this instant.
Uh, is this hot water?
That’s right! What about Sebastian?
One thing is essential for a resort:
a centrepiece that will provide a tourist attraction.
Bathing luxuriously in excessive amounts of hot water,
draining away the fatigue of the day;
that is what this is:
(TL Note) Spa Hot Spring in UK
the spa!
If one who serves as a Phantomhive Butler could not strike a spring or two, then where would we be?
Once again, it’s too shocking!
There, there. There, there!
I found this little one about a month ago.
I love dogs, and he was just so cute I ended up trying to tame him.
He has a bad habit of turning into a human when he gets excited, though.
Don’t try to settle this by calling it a “habit”!
So, you kept him without telling anyone?
Lord Barrymore used the legend of the Devil Dog,
but in reality, he was more afraid of it than anyone else.
When I thought about what would happen if this one found out…
I suppose I was too naïve.
I didn’t think for one moment that he would do that to Lord Barrymore.
I beg of you, is there no way he could be taken to Lord Ciel’s mansion?
Take him to the mansion?
If he’s under Sebastian’s tutelage, I believe Pluto will become a wonderfully obedient dog!
Well, I am one hell of a butler, but…
That sounds fine.
Are you serious, Young Master?
Yes. It sounds fun
in many ways.
The Devil Dog’s curse has been lifted!
Thank you! Thank you!
Hey, what’s all this?
Of course.
There is a legend in this village,
that when the sins against the dogs have been repented,
the earth will let out tears of redemption.
They are blessed tears!
There was already a spring in this village, though.
Well, whatever. Our goal was accomplished.
Would it perhaps be time for you to say that line you so carelessly uttered before?
You do it.
With that, the case is at an end!
This is perfect.
This is the Japanese way of enjoying a spa.
In this way, you can enjoy a small meal as well.
Even so…
Hey, hold that side.
Would anybody like one?
This gloomy village has undergone quite a transformation.
I’m sure the gloom in Her Majesty’s heart has also been lifted.
It seems my gloom will continue, however.
Don’t forget about me, Pluto!
Pluto! In the meantime, put something on when you go into town!
Plu, you’re jiggling all over the place!
Note: This is a pun. “Puru puru” is the sound of jiggling.
Um, Miss Angela…
Let us meet again, Mr. Finny.
Well, then. Shall we make some headway?
I will definitely come to see Pluto sometime.
If possible, I would ask you to refrain from doing so.
Taming a Devil Dog is not such an easy task.
Though you seem to have quite a talent for it…
Let’s go, Sebastian.
See you, Miss Angela!
Surely sometime soon.
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!
A Talbot Camera?
Once again, you have obtained quite an exquisite toy.
If it pleases you, I shall take some snaps for you.
Ah, Young Master, please move to the right a little.
Your profile from the left is quite unfortunate.
Next time on Kuroshitsuji:
His Butler, A Phantasm.
His Butler, A Phantasm
After all, I am one hell of a butler.
We shall await you next time…
