A to Z Challenge 2017 -- Grell Sutcliff, Giroro, Gowther #atozchallenge

Grell Sutcliff is an all and all freaky character.  He is a Grim Reaper and part of the Retrieval Division.  His Death Scythe is in the form of a chain saw.  Yes, I said chainsaw.  He is from the from the demon  filled, Victorian horror Anime Black Butler.

We first meet this character as a bumbling butler of Ciel (see-ell) Phantomhive's aunt, Angelina Dalles.

When Ciel and Sebastian investigate the Ripper murders, they find out that Grell isn't a human at all and in league with the aunt, who is behind the murders

He is completely off his rocker when it comes to blood and Sebastian. He makes sexually veiled comments about wanting to be with Sebastian.  He is somewhat effeminate and very flamboyant.

He is the gif playing in my theme reveal.


Giroro is the gun-toting, action-wanting, but in love with a Pekoponian girl, Corporal of Sgt. Frog.  He has a short temper when it comes to Keroro's inanity and stupidity. When he realizes he is stuck on Earth, he plants a tent in the Hinata's backyard.

When he first appears, he is very aggressive when it came to taking over the planet and of everything, but he calms as the show progresses.

The belt across his chest contains a picture of Natsumi (naht-sue-mee), which is revealed during one of the episodes.  He was defeated in combat by her during their first meeting and loves her soon after. Without the belt, he becomes a useless wreck.


Gowther is the one of the strangest of the Seven Deadly Sins.  He is the Goat Sin of Lust, which is strange because he has no idea about emotions nor does he comprehend them. He is fun to watch as he interacts with the others.  He asks the strangest questions and is very contemplative.  He has a cruel streak at times.

We first see him disguised and wondering around with a suit of armor. Later we learn that it was his armor and he was protecting the creature inside from turning into a demon completely.

In one battle, his head was severed from his body but he still lived.  This even surprised his comrades. Only one of the Sins knows Gowther's true origins.


  1. You had me at Victorian Horror Anime called Black Butler. So... another one for the list. :D I think your posts are just going to become a reference for me when I'm looking for something to watch. Hopefully I can find some of them on Netflix.

    1. They are probably there or crunchyroll. Hulu too. It depends on the show and what is playing where in the world.

      Im t you ae finding shows to watch.

  2. All three are fun to watch. I get my anime from Hulu, Netflix, crunchyroll, and from friends.

    I know that sds is on American Netflix and black butler is on the other sites. I think crunchyroll is international but I could be mistaken.

  3. Gowther sounds intriguing, but then so too does a reaper with a chainsaw (rather scary as well though), and as for a frog obsessed by a picture in his belt - well, that's just say you pick interesting characters :)

    1. grell is so, so out there. his superior, William, is such a straight shooter that it's comical to watch them together. then there's sebastian. he despises grell. it's dark comedy at its best.

  4. And here I thought a scythe was scary - way to out do it with a chainsaw, Grell! :)
    Gowther sounds like an intriguning character too.

    1. i don't know how to describe the fight between sebastian and grell other than holy moly on a cracker wild.

      gowther is amusing for his lack of emotion as everyone freaks out around him as he asks why everyone is freaking out around him.
