Today just so happens to be the birthday of J. Michael Tatum, the English voice of Black Butler’s Sebastian. He’s so awesome, Tatum arranged it so years ago he could be born on Sebastian Appreciation Weekend. Well, ok, maybe it didn’t QUITE work that way.
In all seriousness, did you know that Mr. fantabulous J. Michael Tatum, suffered from a speech impediment as a child? To hear the story, and hear how his speech therapy helped to create the voice of Sebastian, check out the video above (specifically the 6:05 mark) from a recent tour by Wong Fu productions at FUNimation Entertainment.
P.S. If you want to share your love of Sebastian this weekend on Tumblr, when you go to post your content, don’t forget to add the keyword tag of “Sebastian Appreciation Weekend” for a chance to be featured by us!
Not only is she the English voice of Black Butler’s Ciel, but she’s also the voice behind Fractale’s Clain. Just this past weekend we announced at Anime Central that she’s playing the starring role of Kasumi in our forthcoming thriller, King of Thorn. For a sneak peak of her, and the English dub check out the video (specifically starting at 3:22).
Did you know that the voice of Ciel, Brina Palencia, is also the voice of Chibitalia in Hetalia? Similarly, the English voice of our hellish butler Sebastian, J. Michael Tatum, is also the voice of France in the historically inspired romp.
To celebrate the connections between these two shows, and we know that many of our Black Butler fans also happen to love Hetalia (especially all you shippers out there), here’s our latest trailer for Hetalia World Series 2 (Season 4) Official Trailer posted!
MMM, pasta. Why am I suddenly hungry? I wonder if Sebastian will eat Ciel’s soul as a pasta dish some day?

While I adore Sebastian in his normal attire, there is something rather fun about seeing him with a bunny tail and ears (appearance at the 1:29 mark in the video clip). Ah look, the Easter Bunny arrived early! That must be why I returned from lunch to find a Cadbury Caramel Egg at my desk.
