    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.

    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. and it all begins as follows

    Ciel Phantomhive is the son of lord Victor Phantomhive on his birthday his parents are brutally murdered by being burned alive, then he was taken by a cult group held and a symbol branded into his flesh on one side near his ribs. While still laying on his back wanting revenge he summons and makes a pact 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, murder, 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.

    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.
