Hello! How`s your days doing?
I`m Noel Ko-zuki.
Reapers have a important meaning in Black Butler.
I feel that they are including spiritual aspect.
Reapers in Black Butler is,
Reapers looks at the cinematic record of the dying person and checks whether to live or kill.
According to official character book,
The Reaper is a race and it is also a profession like a civil servant.
Moreover, new configuration is revealed. Reapers were suicide before.
They start second life as a reaper, and they do judge the souls.
On the other hand, there are a message about suicide in spiritual books.
Souls continue reincarnation. When we finished a life, we choose experiences in next life.
But, sucides are little different.
It is said that suicide repeat the same life as the life that they committed suicide.
We go forward normally, but suicides are repeat their quest until they overcome the quests.
I have read this, so I thought Reapers in Black Butler is,
judge the souls because, to choose what they want to do next rincarnation through watching cinematic record.
Reapers is only job can to know human`s life in detail I think.
Cinematic records are like catarog of life.
Reapers might be notice about life without suicide through watching these records, trough to watch these records.
I don`t know how reapers return to reincarnation cycle, but I really want Grell to become cuty girl!
As an additional note,
in Japan, there are many and many suicide in these days.
If all suicides reborn as a reaper, Death Dispatch Association will be full house!
…It`s just my imagination.
Thank you for your reading!
I wish you all the best!
