    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!!! May 1, 2012
    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!

    5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST! April 5, 2012
    By AudreyT
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    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!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Blew. My. Mind. April 1, 2014
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Black Butler season 1 January 20, 2013
    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..

    5.0 out of 5 stars Black Butler season 1. An anime addicts heaven January 14, 2013
    By Raven
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Black Butler, Season 1

    This set includes 3 DVD. And 2 Blu Ray discs. Playback, color, clarity, and sound are outstanding. The animation, scenes, and artwork are amazingly detailed and realistic, You won't be disappointed. Ciel Phantomhive is the son of lord Phantomhive his parents are murdered. Wanting revenge he summons and makes a contract with demon Sabastian the deal is completed and Ciel is marked and bears Sabastian's mark on one eye which he wears an eye patch over. Sabastian works for him as a butler he is very charismatic, intelligent, classy, well spoken, and handsome. After his parents murderer is found and punished as agreed to in the contract as payment Sabastian gets to devour Ciel's soul. This series is a mix of comedy, drama, and mystery, with a dash of romance thrown in every once in a while it has plenty of action along with some great plot twists

    One great example of the action content is seen in one episode where Ciel is kidnapped and held for ransome by a large group of mafia men. A letter is sent to Sabastian Mey Rin gets it swiftly bringing it to Sabastian who then sets out to rescue the young lord. Entering the vast estate is when you really get to see Sabastian's assassin abilities as in the dining room he takes out a whole group of mafia guys with guns with nothing more then silverware used like ninja throwing stars and serving trays which cut into them like daggers killing them instantly

    Sabastian goes into the back room where Ciel has been beaten and is being held by the mob boss. Hidden behind a wall portrait is a group of armed men who shoot through it the bullets hitting and killing Sabastian laying there bleeding out the mob boss cockily laughs.
