Mizushima Hiro to make a comeback as an actor with “Black Butler” movie

On January 8, it was announced that Mizushima Hiro would be making a comeback as an actor after a 3 year hiatus through the movie “Kuroshitsuji ( Black Butler).”

He last made a appearance in the movie “BECK” which was released back in September 2010. Since then, Mizushima has not appeared in a drama or movie as he was only seen in music video and CM. “Since I stayed away (as an actor) for a while, I feel uneasy.” Mizushima said. He continued, “I am actually surprised at my decision to return as an actor, but I figured that to encounter such a great work could change my mind.

His comeback movie “Kuroshitsuji” is a dark and mysterious fantasy based on Toboso Yana’s ongoing manga of the same name which is currently being serialized on Monthly GFantasy.The manga was adapted into TV anime during 2008~2010, and it also got stage performance adaptation.

In the movie, Mizushima will play a butler of the Phantomhive household, named ”Sebastian Michaelis.” His figure, culture, dignity, martial skills…he’s perfect at everything. Also along with his tasks as a butler, he also solves complicated murder cases. Moreover, “Sebastian” is not a human being, but a demon. Reportedly, this movie adaptation will be set in 130 years later from the manga and follow a completely original story.

It is said that the producer of “Kuroshitsuji”, Matsuhashi Sinzo was first offered Mizushima over a year and a half ago, with his conviction of “Only Mizushima Hiro can play this role”, and eagerly visited him numerous times. Mizushima finally accepted the offer because of Matsuhashi’s enthusiasm, and the fascination of the original series. Mizushima said, “Up until now, my actions were based on the answers coming from my brain no matter what I do, but this time, I will have to follow the intuition that I should believe in Matsuhashi-san and this work. Right now, I am spending every day thinking how I can make ‘Kuroshitsuji’ a great work.“ The filming for the movie will start in April, and prior to that, Mizushima has already started reducing his weight for the role, as well as the training for actions.

The movie will be directed by Otani Kentaro and animator Sato Keiichi, and is scheduled to be released sometime in 2013.

Japanese fans still confused about Ciel since the story is about 130 years later from manga and it's original story,maybe no Ciel for the movie? Original Master for Sebastian? Who Knows,let see :)))

I'm not gonna lie, but that gif is how I'm feelin' right now.

Kuroshitsuji was never a series for serious plot, so I'm looking for to fun and Hiro's fan girly-deliciousness!
hyuuga_princess 8th-Jan-2013 11:09 pm (UTC)
Now they'd better be doing a DAMN GOOD JOB on this movie, cast a PROPER Ciel and Grell, and well, may it all go well. Please Japan don't destroy the first thing we see of Hiro in such a long time!!!!

he is a eh actor, always find him overrated so don't care he is back

but this sounds kinda interesting, everytime I see this character tho I think of Matsushita Yuya
u_chai 9th-Jan-2013 12:25 am (UTC)
Cause yuya is THE kuroshitsuji? I've watched the musicals and he was great in it.

OMFG!!!! Finally Hiro comes back!!!! <3 <3 <3 He looks as great as ever <3
I complained just yesterday about his hiatus! xD
I never cared for the manga but either way, I think I will love the movie! xD Can't wait for it! :D

I swear this man's name is a magic word. I never really cared about this manga/anime, but now I'm thinking I should give it a try.

Ahhh yesss. Perfect.

Kinda figured there'd be a live action series/movie/SOMETHING (not just the stage play) given Kuroshitsuji's popularity. Have to say I'm glad to see Mizushima returning to acting, though I understand his hesitation after a 3-year hiatus.

Also intrigued about the "original story", though I know many adaptation producers use that phrase as code for "doing whatever the hell we feel like".

at this point, i still want them to stick with the old Victorian setting, but we'll see.

So glad he is coming back , he was too good to retire early
ninobelle17 8th-Jan-2013 11:39 pm (UTC)

And here I thought the second musical (which is way better than the first) was big news but this takes the cake.
I think he looks good too in the photo's. I'd buy him as Sebastian, but there'll be a ton of Fan girls who probably wish Yuya Matsuhita had been able to play Sebastian in the movie. He was in both musicals. But, I'm just hoping it's a good adaptation.
hyuuga_princess 8th-Jan-2013 11:55 pm (UTC)
the fact that we wish Yuya was in the movie too doesn't mean we don't appreciate Hiro.. I for one know very little people who don't like him tbh XD I love Yuya very much, but I'm thrilled Hiro is gonna play this role! Plus, if the revival of the musical this year is real, we all hope Yuya is gonna be there so it's not like he won't be back as Sebastian somehow ;)

falling_cookie 9th-Jan-2013 12:21 am (UTC)
yay! I love Hiro! I'm so glad that he's finally coming back.
dramajewels 9th-Jan-2013 12:23 am (UTC)
I can't wait to see this movie and will be living in Japan when it finally comes out. Love Hiro and was waiting for him to star in something. Glad he is back from hiatus. Since the plot will take place 130 years after the manga, I look forward to seeing what they do with their original story.
naru_hime 16th-Jan-2013 05:34 pm (UTC)
Your comment made me realise, I'll probs be in Japan when it comes out too!! *high fives all round*
secretdreamers 9th-Jan-2013 12:31 am (UTC)
I can't believe he's been gone for 3 years already... seems like only yesterday.

Looking forward to his interpretation though
liime_arix 9th-Jan-2013 12:34 am (UTC)
Mizushima Hiro is back, all is right in the world. Kuroshitsuji is where it is at. Not only is the plot and art of Kuroshitsuji good. Yuya Matsushita was wonderful as Sebastian in the stage play and now Mizushima Hiro is back and doing a movie. I could cry tears of blood.
rizuka 9th-Jan-2013 03:15 pm (UTC)
I wish there was a retweet button on LJ lol so agreeing with you!
maybecannotbe 9th-Jan-2013 12:36 am (UTC)
Wawawawawa i didn't know there will be a Kuroshitsuji live action movie *.*
Looking forward to this one! Also Mizushima Hiro as Sebastian?? Perfect!

130 years in the future...

So no Victorian England setting. That kinda changes everything, doesn't it?</p>

We'll see!
