    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
    Format:Blu-ray
    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 I am not a fan of anime February 22, 2014
    Format:Blu-ray
    I am very picky when it comes to anime. My boyfriend watches it all the time but nothing ever sparks my interest, until Black Butler. This was probably the second anime I have watched on my own, not just because he was watching it.

    It's dark, quirky, and sometimes quite comical. The characters are amazing and it's easy to get sucked into the show. I would highly, highly recommend it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars deal with the devil is well priced November 19, 2013
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Anything Victorian will grab my attention, but throw in the supernatural? Yeah, I'm there. The animation is beautiful, and the story line is quite intriguing. You find more answers in the second volume, but you start to figure out the key players are never really the ones in plain sight. Simply put, Ciel makes a deal with a devil to get revenge for all that has happened to him and his family. What he doesn't realize is how difficult a journey that will be, nor how dangerous. Along the way, he must continue his investigations for the crown, which of course lead to mayhem and who knows what else.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite animes! August 2, 2012
    By Cameron
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Package came very quickly. This is a great story (two seasons total). It is nice to get both Blue ray and DVD formats (I game the DVDs to my sister). The extras are a real treat if you are really into the voice actors (interviews, extras, etc.) Seeing the show in Blue ray quality versus when I first saw it on Netflix is a totally fresh experience all together. I am very satisfied with my purchase!
