Black Butler looks to be the latest film to receive a controversial adaptation, with it casting the butler boy's master as a cross-dressing girl ‘“ Ayame Goriki, a move unlikely to please the show’s fujoshi fans.Goriki’s boyish looks seem to have led to director Shinzo Matsuhashi to cast for the part (original to the movie) of Shiori, who was raised as young master Kiyoharu for the usual implausible reasons of corporate dynasty.According to an article in Sankaku Complex, he says she was the first person he thought of casting as the boy: “Goriki was the first person who came to mind with her strong pupils, boyish looks and short hair, I thought she was perfect for the role of a girl burdened with the fate of living as a boy by this perverted world.‘She comments that “I’ve heard a lot of opinions about the difference between the original and the movie, and I think we’ll be able to inject a lot of human emotion into the story with the adaptation.‘
