    Ciel Phantomhive is the most powerful boy in all of England, but he bears the scars of unspeakable suffering. Forced to watch as his beloved parents were brutally murdered, Ciel was subsequently abducted and violently tortured. Desperate to end his suffering, the boy traded his own soul for a chance at vengeance, casting his lot with the one person on whom he could depend: Sebastian, a demon Butler summoned from the very pits of hell. Together, they’ll prowl the darkest alleys of London on a mission to snuff out those who would do evil. They’re a rare sight, these two: the Butler who dismembers with dazzling cutlery – and the Young Master who carries the devil’s marking. Rest assured that wherever they may be headed, it’ll be one hell of a ride.

    I love this anime, it is absolutely insanely awesome. I highly recommend it. Sebastian is the most bad ass butler I've ever heard of. This whole series is spectacular. There are demons, grim reapers, people you'll adore, people you'll have fun hating, it has everything.

    Aku made shitsuji desu.
    That's Sebastian's catch phrase of sorts, roughly translating to "I am one hell of a butler" or "I am a devil of a butler"
    But in Japanese it has two meanings, also sounding like this:
    Akuma de shitsuji desu.
    That means "I am a devil and a butler"

    Also instead of Grell saying "Bassy" it's actually "Sebas-chan" which in Japanese would be like a disrespectful (since Sebastian hates him) pet name.

    Hope you found that interesting!

    This show is one of the best animes I've seen in a while, (although the manga is a bit better for those who want to check it out), but overall this anime is very well done with lots of mystery, action, and humor. If you haven't seen it yet you're missing out!

    Black Butler is the first anime I've watched and it was nothing I was expecting and more than I was hoping for. You probably know the bare bones of the story but I'll give you a quick rundown. Ciel Phantomhive is a 12 year old boy whose parents were killed and he is now the head of the expansive and lucrative Phantomhive business and estate. He has four servants. Three are sort of goofy and then there's Ciel's butler, Sebastian. Sebastian's not just any butler. He's a demon with whom Ciel has entered into a contract. Sebastian does Ciel's bidding, keeps him alive, and searches for the people who killed Ciel's parents. Once the culprits are dead, Sebastian gets to eat Ciel's soul. As Sebastian and Ciel search for the killers there are also mysteries to solve because Ciel has also fallen into the role of the Queen's guard dog now that his parents have died. It's a lot. It's a whole lot.

    Let's start with the characters. Most people focus on Sebastian but it was Ciel who stole the show for me. He's the most complex and ruthless 12 year old ever. He's dedicated to revenge, married to his hatred for whoever killed his parents, and quite comfortable with the fact that he's going to Hell. He's the guard dog for the queen, both the supernatural and adults all but bow to him even though they do it grudgingly. You would think that a child could not be convincing as such a powerful and exacting character but Ciel is more than convincing. The scene where he sticks a gun in an adult's mouth while demanding information is made all the more chilling when he calmly says "children are not very patient". If any 12 year old could run the underworld, demand people's death, defy death himself, and make a pact with a demon, that child is Ciel.

    And then we have Sebastian.

    In 2006, mangaka Yana Toboso ("Rust Blaster") began working on his second manga that year for Square Enix's "Monthly GFantasy" magazine. The series nown as "Kuroshitsuji" (Black Butler) would receive a large fanbase due to its bishounen characters.

    By 2008, "Black Butler" would receive an anime adaptation featuring production by A-1 Pictures ("Tetsuwan Birdy: Decode", "El Cazador de la Bruja", "Valkyria Chronicles") directed by Shinohara Toshiya ("Lupin III: Crisis in Tokyo", "Gurren Lagann", "Samurai Deeper Kyo"), a screenplay by Mari Okada "CANAAN", "Aria the Natural", "Red Garden", "PoPoLoCrois"), music by Taku Iwasaki ("Angel Heart", "R.O.D. - The TV", "Soul Eater"), character designs by Minako Shiba (".Hack/Sign", "Letter Bee", "Madlax") and art direction by "Hiromasa Ogura" ("Ghost Hound", "Aquarian Age", "Appleseed"). The opening theme "Monochrome Kiss" is by SID and the ending theme "I'm Alive" is by BECCA.

    And since the release of the original manga series and anime series, the popularity of "Black Butler" has led to a musical, drama CD's, a video game and books have been released in Japan.

    While the manga is still ongoing in Japan, the anime series has continued with two full seasons at 48 episodes long and now both seasons are being released on Blu-ray/DVD courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment.

    VIDEO:

    "Black Butler" is a violently, dark and bloody anime. Anime production by A-1 Pictures, Inc. is well done as artistic backgrounds of London during the Victorian Era is painted with great shadowing and the action sequences are also well-done as we get several styles which include a serious to more fun and hilarious style of animation.

    What I enjoy about the series are the overall character designs and the costume designs.

    First of all, let me start off with saying this. Everyone takes something differently from anime. Some people relate to the character's, some people relate to the story line, whatever the case may be, anime is a great way to put yourself in an unknown world.

    I started watching anime about a year ago, and since then i've been eating it up ever since. This is one of my all time favorites, I cannot get enough of this anime! I love the dark deep shadowy secrets, I love unraveling with the character's as they go along with their story. The first season was pretty dark, a lot going on. It was a little dark and deep at times, but when you break the barrier of the character themselves, you find a deeper meaning to the story. Ciel is a fiesty little kid who had to literally take the bull by the horns with his life. Sebastian is his physical power.

    It seemed kind of weird at first when you take into consideration that Sebastian, in the end, only wanted to 'eat' Ciel's soul. Once you get past that awkward weirdness, the story unravels. It's a great season, one of my all time classic's, I must say.

    There's so many twists and turns that you just don't know where the story is heading next!
    The only downfall I have to say about it, is the fact that the ending was kind of abrupt. Short, made no sense. It kind of made you wonder, there was no actual closure, in my opinion.

    What I will tell you though, is that it makes you think. It's one of those things that sticks with you, and you think about it for weeks afterward. Haunting, if you will.
    If you need a break from your regular anime watching expeditions, and you don't mind, dark, deep and scary.. then watch this. There is humor, there is tears..
