I’ve recently been watching the anime Black Butler, and I would like to talk about one of my favorite characters in it so far.
Soma Asman Kadar is a 17 year-old boy who is the prince of Bengal and traveled to London to find a servant of his who had disappeared. Soma is a bit selfish and vain, but is a funny and reliable character. Although he has a hard time confronting problems, Soma helps out the story’s protagonist, Ciel Phantomhive, and gets him back on his feet. Soma’s had some tough times and it’s hard to believe such a carefree person can have such an unfortunate past. Nonetheless, he enjoys his time with his attendant and friend, Agni.
I really like Soma’s design, because I think there’s something to be said about the diversity of his character. A lot of anime characters are just strictly white, and I like the fact that this series acknowledged people of different race.
