Oh man, I’m laughing right now. I was reviewing pictures of Claude’s spider form and I realized something very important about the way that he’s drawn. 
Do you see the little feeler things at his head? Those are his pedipalps, present in both male and female spiders. These are used to sex spiders, because in male spiders they are enlarged to resemble “boxing gloves” and store sperm. 
Clearly we can see that Claude’s pedipalps are not enlarged. This means one of three things: A) the animators didn’t go into that much detail with spider anatomy to care, B) Claude is a sexually immature male spider, or (my favorite option) C) CLAUDE IS A FEMALE SPIDER.
I’m probably reading too much into things, but I’m still laughing. Our poor, handsome Claude is drawn as a pretty Claudia.

This official art, representing the end of Kuroshitsuji, for its characters is one of my favorites, for it captures what the end is for each group. Ciel and Sebastian are departing with pensiveness, and Ciel is looking determinedly in his direction, which is very much how he moves in his regular life in canon, showing that once he had been changed, he likely will not ever change again, since making the contract with Sebastian was the last major decision he would mark in his life, considering it is officially the hourglass that numbers his days from that moment forth. In the drawing, Ciel and Sebastian look very much as they are in the manga, focused on their paths. On the Trancy side on the other hand, they are all very much focused on each other. They appear to be engaging in light, happy, lively interaction, for the end for them is — that Alois, the center of it all, finally attains the love and companionship he’s needed and desired all his life.
