    Intro

    This chapter wrecked me and Agni wasn't even one of my favorite characters. :(

    Chapter 127: AGNI

    Ch127 Soma shot

    Shiiiit.

    Agni comes over just as Soma gets shot in the hand. This pisses Agni off so he unleashes his Right Hand of Kali (or something like that, I forgot what it's called). But when he is about to demolish the gun guy, the knife guy stabs him (I think there were two attackers) and says he'll handle the rest. They fight and Agni is in awe by how fast and strong the guy is. The gun guy is about to shoot Soma but Agni takes the bullet for him.

    Ch127 Agni takes the bullet

    Agni, you valiant bastard, noooo.

    Then Agni pulls Soma up and drags him down the hallway toward a room. In the meantime, the knife guy stabs him.....which is kind of weird. It's hard to imagine this random dude patiently following them and continuing to stab Agni. And where's the gun guy? Did he run out of bullets? Why didn't he just shoot Agni right then and there and finish the job?

    But back to the story. Other people have also noticed this but it seems like Agni passed something to Soma. Maybe the Ciel photo?

    Ch127 Agni gives Soma something

    Pls be the Ciel's photo.

    Agni pushes Soma into the room and holds on to the door to prevent the attackers from getting in. While he's holding on to it, the knife guy stabs him multiple times.

    CAN I JUST SAY THAT AGNI'S INNER MONOLOGUE WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING EVER?

    Prince Soma. When you saved me that day, I am certain it was on a whim. But ever since then, you have been the sun in my sky. You brighten and darken as is your wont, and play havoc with me as you walk down your own path. You have no idea of all the people you've saved by simply shining up in the heavens. That part of you is also very like the sun itself. Prince Soma. Only with you as my sun could my days begin, and the breeze blow life into my stagnant heart, and the stillness of night heal me. So I pray that your life never grows dim. As long as you keep shining brightly, I know there is no ice that will not melt before you.

    DAMMIT, THAT HURTS, AGNI.

    Agni tells Soma that he was really happy being with him-------and then it's over.

    Ch127 Soma and Agni

    OK ENOUGH MY POOR HEART

    Sebastian and Ciel come home to find the place in ruins, blood everywhere, and Agni in this state.

    Ch127 Agni's body

    SHIT THIS IS GRUESOME

    Sebastian tries to open the door, but Agni's hand is still on the doorknob. He has to use his demon strength to pry off Agni's hand - the whole doorknob comes along 'cuz that's how tightly Agni was holding it. DAMMIT AGNI YOU'RE A GOOD MAN.

    When Sebastian finally opens the door, he sees Soma bawling. I'd be that way too. And that's when Sebastian pays his respects to Agni and calls him the epitome of a butler.

    Ch127 Sebastian and Agni

    Goddammit Agni, get up man!!!

    Wrap-up

    Shiiiit man, that hit me right in the feels. This chapter is Agni's chapter and no other. It was amazing and Toboso really shocked me here.

    It's going to be extremely interesting to see what Soma is going to be like from here on out. The only person to love him unconditionally, even when he was being a arsehole, and shelter him from everything bad is gone. From now on, Soma will have to mature on his own without someone there to gently point him in the right direction. That's going to be interesting. And I wonder if he'll blame Ciel for this, and if he does, what's going to happen to their relationship?

    I gotta say, really loved Sebastian in this chapter. It's clear that he actually respects Agni and I thought that was moving.

    What's Ciel going to do now? Hopefully Soma will reveal who the attackers are in the next chapter!!! Don't delay it, Toboso!!! We need to gut those two arseholes and avenge Agni!!! (‡▼益▼)

    I'm glad Agni got a chance to see Soma grow as a person before he died. :( (And now I'm kind of bitter that Wolfy survived the last arc and yet Agni has to die. It was the perfect time for Wolfy to die back then - and now he plays such an insignificant role.)

    Finally, a character death! I'm really sad that Agni died but I'm so curious about how the plot will develop. (Though this seems very different from the beginning of the arc (think chapter 109)......what is even the Blue Cult arc, seriously...)

    I really can't predict what's going to happen. Can't wait for next month.

    • Ah I read this chapter on a Chinese manga app-

      At last a character death..! I'm honestly getting really annoyed at Yana... the pacing of this arc is beyond horrible and it's such a mood killer whenever the most exciting part is when the chapter ends. Really felt this chapter and the previous should've been combined. >_> 

      Apart from that, this chapter killed me inside especially when Agni said his last words to Soma... w h y. :'( I think Agni's death can lead to some good development though, especially with Soma and Ciel. Agni literally took the information he found from the photos in chapter 126 to the grave.. so we'll probably never know just what shocked him so much. 

      Didn't really enjoy this chapter that much because it ended soooo soon, but at least Agni's death was executed beautifully if not a little bit rushed imo.

      Did he though? Look carefully, Agni pushed a piece of paper (Possibly a part of the photo?) into Soma's hands before he died. 

      Actually Yana's confirmed she planned to kill off Agni all along. She just didn't expect Angi and Soma to be such popular characters!

    • That the arc's theme is radiance and what makes you happy, quite a lot of people have stopped shining.

      Lizzy has found her radiance in the Musical Hall, but it keeps her away from her family and friends and makes her depressed. Soma has been able to completely define himself, only to lose Agni moments later. And if the thing Agni handed Soma is the photograph he found and this photo shows the real Ciel, it would fit with the theme as Real!Ciel was more or less the radiance of Fake!Ciel. ("Ah, that's right. I still had you.")

    • everyone seemed so worried about Soma, but i honestly expected poor Agni to die. :(

      my initial reasoning was the fact that Agni had just found out a scary secret - likely the one Ciel had previously been eager to keep in the shadows. it seemed so convenient to kill the butler off at this point.

      but now, noticing Agni may have slipped something of essence into his master's hand, i'm not sure what to think anymore. i feel like i finally called something beforehand, but it was just an arbitrarily lucky shot lol.

      also, the second attacker threw me off so bad.

      i agree with CuteTenshi12 anyways, the pace is just terrible, this chapter especially wrecked it for me.

    • Ok I am so mad because I wrote up a really lengthy comment but that got deleted and never published, I don't even know why. >:( this is so cruel, now I have to type it again. ____________________________________________________

      Omg, I srsly have no words rn. Can't believe my first post back in a while is going to be on Agni's death T_T such bad timing, wish I came back earlier.

      Tbh, I had a feeling Agni was going to eventually die in the series, because like ScarletLycrois said, Toboso-sensei did say way back that she's always wanted to off Agni but couldn't because ppl liked him and Soma too much. I can't find the exact source now unfortunately but yeh I didn't really pay too much attention to it back then - I just figured she'd get her wish later in the series....... DID NOT REALISE IT WOULD COME THIS SOON. I THOUGHT ITD BE WAYYY LATER. SO I WAS STILL CAUGHT OFF GUARD.

      Honestly, Agni's inner monologue really got to me because I felt like it beautifully captured the whole essence of his relationship with Soma. I agreed that at the beginning, Soma might have just saved Agni at the guillotine coz he felt like it that day and it wouldve been cool to do such a saviour-like act (plus he gets a protector as he runs off to find Mina etc.) - but he really grew to care for Agni and matured a lot through the experiences they had together. And of course, Agni matured too, seeing this as an opportunity to repent and he really adored Soma and tried to shield him from any evil or harm - so it's scary to think how Soma will fare now that his one source of security and comfort is gone forever - but it's also something to look forward to coz it means tremendous character development for Soma.

      I think a lot of readers either loved their previous light-heartedness or hated it coz it ruined the flow of the darker contents of Kuroshitsuji, but regardless, it was really nice that Agni and Soma got a whole chapter to themselves. And ofc Sebastian's last words to Agni... ;____; like as much as Ciel and Sebastian think Agni and Soma were annoying or Ciel allegedly never considered Soma a friend, I feel like Ciel was still able to enjoy himself in their company sometimes and both learnt from Agni and Soma in many ways. Like I believe there was genuine respect and amazement at Agni's devotion to Soma from both Ciel and Sebastian even from Curry Contest Arc up til now.... and how Sebastian learnt about being a good butler from Agni when Ciel was sick during Circus Arc and also how he was slightly shocked that hed be considered a friend to Agni..... brb gonna cry my eyes out.

      Can't believe how sad I am over Agni's death, I wonder how I'm going to survive the eventual possible character deaths that are going to come lool no one is safe OTL

      All in all, I hope Soma, even if he's grieving, will have a cool head and be able to quickly identify the attackers (yeh at this stage I'm going to agree with everyone who has commented that the pace got kinda weird in this chapter. Like I didn't envision Agni's sacrifice for Soma to be executed in this way and also what was up with how the attackers tried to kill Agni and Soma - like the first attacker just vanished without a trace??? I would think Agni wouldve been strong enough to fend off the second attacker if the first attacker just up and left like that but I guess he was too distracted by anger and worry over Soma's safety). Also hoping that when it comes to getting revenge, that it will be Soma who's doing it and not Ciel and Sebastian. Or even if Soma decides to forgive them as Agni wouldve liked him to do blabla as long as it's Soma confronting the attackers, then that'd be good. I feel like it wouldn't be as appropriate if it were the latter.

      However, I am a bit worried over the 'evidence' that Agni slipped into Soma's hand - imo it might put Soma into a position of incredible danger, particularly if the contents are potentially incriminating towards a certain person... on that note, wondering how his relationship with Ciel will turn out like is it going to turn sour and if it does, Ciel will find Soma even more dispensable and Soma will be less safe. Idk, I just want him to be happy and continue to be like the sun like Agni said... :( to think that if they just went back to India then none of this wouldve happened but there wouldve been no plot....

      Ok, I wanted my thoughts to be more organised than this and I might have missed some things but it's been a day and I've had to retype so not bothered anymore haha.

      Edit: Found the tweet Toboso-sensei made. It was implied but you can obviously tell who it is. It's been deleted now, though.

      I am more shocked about your return than I am about Agni's death, which says a lot. Where have you been?

      Since you left your thoughts on the chapter, I will, too. While some people were expecting Agni to die, or even Soma, I had no expectations whatsoever. I did not think Toboso had it in her to kill Agni. And, while it is impressive that she did, I am disappointed that his death took place now, of all times. It did feel somewhat sudden. And, also, to leave a bigger impact, Agni and Soma's friendship, and Agni's concern with Soma's well-being should have been better reinforced leading up to his death. I hope there is a good, sensible reason why Soma and Agni were targeted. Because, if it was just an indiscriminate killing of all those connected to Ciel, then it is a shame Agni died that way.

      Yeh, honestly I kinda agree with you. I didn't quite picture Agni's death this way but since it has happened at this point in time, I think it's highly probable that targeting Agni/Soma was to send a message to Ciel - perhaps to either threaten him or idk maybe frame him for the murder or something.

      I feel like Ciel and Sebastian should be keeping an eye on anyone who has been connected to them recently i.e. the P5, P4 etc. because they might be in danger too :/

    • See, I can agree that Toboso-sempai can have been a little more creative with the story, but I had no idea Agni died! I'm on Volume 22, so I'm not that far! ( ̄∇ ̄) I just don't like how characters from previous arcs return back, such as people from the Public Schools Arc and they're appearing on the cover!

    • At least he died honorably ㅠㅠ

      But honestly I cried so hard when I saw that he was holding onto the door so tightly. He wasn't my favorite character, but seeing how much he cared about Soma really hit me.

    • I've heard several people complain about the pacing, both here and other sites. Funny thing is that I loved it. It really set the mood and lead up to a character death. It would be too rushed if the past 2 chapters were combined. That would then cause the emotional turmoil to be less than the hammerfall it was when Agni died.

      In previous chapter we saw how introspective Soma was and Agni finds the photo. When Soma opened the door and we see a gun pointing at him, the slow and emotional build up lead many to believe that there would be a death. Although I thought it would be Soma's at that chapter's end. Then this chapter we see it was Agni.

      I have to say out of all of the current chapters, these past two are my favorites with how the emotional build up then death. It was like a knife plunging into my heart and being twisted. So no, I do not think that the past two chapters should have been combined.
