I love it! Love it! Love it!
Have you seen Hakushaku to Yousei (The Earl and the Fairy) yet?
It's beautiful!  It's really my kind of story.
Mystery. Action. Supernatural. Comedy. Romance(???maybe).Cute guys!
I don't know who this guy chasing the earl is but he's not bad looking either.
I like Edgar aka the Earl and his servant Raven who will do anything even kill if it's for the sake of his master.
I'm wondering what other kinds of secrets Edgar has.
I'm looking so forward to next week and future episodes. 
I gotta pick up the novels and drama cds!

BTW, here's the cast list in case anyone's interested. I have no idea about what the official spellings are so forgive any mistakes. *edited: Just looked up the official spellings.^^

*squee* I was already eying Kelpie from the OP but to know that he is being voiced by Koyasu!!

Ohh..so the original media are novels? When you do pick up the novels would you be so kind as to toss tidbits my way?

So Miyano is there, too..lolz it would have only taken him voicing Edgar and he would really be mature!Tamaki in a colonial setting!!

Yes, I'm very interested in Kelpie, too. He's supposed to be a fairy who's an old friend of Lydia's. He tries to get Lydia to return home after she doesn't come back from London.

Yeah, its originally a novel. I think only 2 are out at the moment. When I get reading the novels, I'll be sure to write up some details for you.

Haha, Miyano as Edgar....yeah there would be quite a resemblance to Tamaki for sure.:p I wonder if Ulysses is good or bad. He's another mysterious guy.

Actually, according to the LJ comm, there are 15 volumes of the novels out? The first 4 volumes raw are scanned and uploaded on the comm.

Cool, I have to check out the comm. I went back to the site and noticed that I hadn't scrolled down in the frame for novels. So I thought there were only 2 out..(><); Oh man, I'm gonna spend a lot of money collecting these novels. I guess I can buy 4 at a time. The problem is finding enough free time to read more than one a month. :p

I'm not sure if there are trans out. So far, I've only seen raw scans.

Well, he did look supernatural in the OP AND he has a weird name so it shouldn't be surprising he isn't human..but he IS definitely gorgeous..can't wait for him to appear!

THANKS!!

I actually picked this up due to the pic I found at AniDB and thought 'TAMAKI!!' Hmm..who's Ulysses?

Ulysses is Miyano's character.
Yeah, I decided to watch this when I first saw an ad for it a couple months ago. I loved the art and the story and knew I had to put it on my must watch list for fall. It's just an added plus that it's about nobility, too. Love it!

Ahahah..What I wanted to ask was what is his part in this series..another fairy or villain or something..

I liked it for Edgar's ladykiller lines in spite of wanting to kill Lydia for being afflicted with the obliviousness and naivete so prevalent among shoujo heroines..

According to the site, it only says that "at first glance Ulysses appears to be a 15-16 year old boy who is a mysterious character."

And some of the expressions on his face make him look like he could be either a naughty or snooty guy. So I'm not sure whose side he's on just yet.

Haha, I liked Edgar's lines, too. He's really something.
Well at least Lydia, isn't gullible. She at least doesn't completely trust Edgar yet which is pretty fair. Luckily, she hasn't done anything to annoy me thus far. Hopefully, she stays that way.:p

I like it too! ^.^ Though the Earl looks a bit to close to Tamaki (from Ouran) for my taste, but I hope they make some longer story from this. Whaa, what kind of fairies will they show? I'm looking forward to it.
So this one is from a novel too? It became quite popular to make novels into animes.

Yeah, I hope they can make this a long series as well. I like the concept so much.
And yeah, I'm very interested in the fairies!! Can't wait for Kelpie to appear!
Yep, another novel. And a Cobalt one at that. I like their novels because their often about nobility and supernatural beings like gods/goddesses and fairies.

This only makes me think of one thing: I should really begin to learn kanji. T_T I would love to read a novel of this. <3

And this is why I decided to come to Japan instead of France. I have so many great learning material to keep me interested.^o^
Yeah, I wish there were novels like this and Shounen Onmyouji and Saint Beast in English. And if there are, someone needs to inform me because those are the kind of novels I want to be reading.

ooh, i'd been wanting to see this (not nearly close with my list of fall anime, though... i was really behind from summer... ^^;;)

I highly reccommend this one.
But I understand you being behind, too.
Right now I'm also catching up with Soul Eater and World Destruction.
