About Black Butler:

Black Butler is a manga series written and illustrated by Yana Toboso. It has been serialized in Square Enix’s shōnen manga magazine Monthly GFantasy since September 2006.

The series received its first anime adaptation in October 2008 by A-1 Pitcures. The anime ended in March 2009 with 24 episodes.

Following this, the second season of the anime, titled Black Butler II, started airing from July 2010 to September 2010.

Funimation has released all three television anime on home video; this includes the Black Butler II OVA project, the Black Butler: Book of Murder OVA, and the Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic anime film.

Yen Press describes the overall plot of Black Butler as follows:

Just a stone’s throw from London lies the manor house of the illustrious Phantomhive earldom, its master one Ciel Phantomhive. Earl Phantomhive is a giant in the world of commerce, Queen Victoria’s faithful servant . . . and a slip of a twelve-year old boy. Fortunately, his loyal butler, Sebastian, is ever at his side, ready to carry out the young master’s wishes.

And whether Sebastian is called to save a dinner party gone awry or probe the dark secrets of London’s underbelly, there is practically nothing Sebastian cannot do. In fact, one might even say Sebastian is too good to be true . . . or at least, he is too good to be human . . .
