I saw an anime, Black Butler season 2 yesterday. I enjoyed it but I thought it was made for fangirls. It was kind a love and hate drama of the handsome men and boys. I thought the first season was better as a story than the second one. The second one is completely original story made by the anime production. Maybe they made the story to answer fangirls’ requests.
There is a term, ‘fujoshi’ (腐女子 = rotten girls?) in Japan.
It means fangirls who like boys’ love. The term 'fujoshi' is a homophonous pun on fujoshi (婦女子), a term for respectable women, created by replacing the character 婦 (pronounced fu), meaning married woman or lady, with the character 腐 (also pronounced fu), meaning fermented or rotten.
One day, those fangirls said that they loved homosexual boys because they were rotten at heart. It was just a joke and since then, those kinds of fangirls have been called ‘fujoshi’. When I hear the term, somehow, I feel a little ashamed.
All scenes of Black Butler season 2 were beautiful and the leading character was cool as usual.
I'm sure that the second season is winning popularity mainly among fangirls in the world.
