Black Butler: Book of Circus (TV)

Genres: comedy, fantasy, shounen, supernatural
Themese: demons

Plot Summary: A new Kuroshitsuji animated project.

The TV series is subtitled Book of Circus and will air July 2014 in the Animeism block. It will adapt the Noah's Ark Circus Arc, picking the manga story back up from the point at which they diverged.

This arc immediately follows the spoiler[Curry Contest Arc] in the manga, which ended at episode 15 in the first season of the anime. (Myanimelist)
----------------------------------
A new Black Butler project! This one will adapt a part not previously covered in the manga. I am super excited since it was one of my favorite arcs.

It's also been awhile since I've seen Black Butler too.

The seductive darkness of Kuroshitsuji is back!
It sure has been a while..
I almost forgot how efficient Sebastian is.
He's such a control freak LOL
Ciel has his own charm too.
The biggest mistake is taking those two for granted.
I thoroughly enjoyed this episode.
Will be watching this!

Welcome back, Sebastian and Ciel! I guess they used the first episode as a quick introductory for those who aren't following the series. It's worth noting that the scenario was written by Tobo sensei herself. While nothing really happens in this episode, I'm satisfied just seeing my favorite butler again.

Now the second episode... THAT'S when the fun really begins! They screened the episode at the event a couple weeks ago and it was so good. *_____*

My wallet is open and waiting.

Episode 1 was exactly what I wanted from another season of Black Butler. Somehow, Sebastian makes being a butler seem like such an amazing and glamorous profession lol. (Yea I guess being a powerful demon guy tends to help with that). I also had a good laugh when spoiler[ the bad guy is about to get what's coming to him, and Ciel is like "You want to know why no one knows what the dog does to people? Dead men don't talk."] Yes Ciel, you make being bad so good ;0

Seriously though, it's funny that this show should come back right after the end of World Is Still Beautiful. The timing is pretty good though. This is exactly how the "dark" shota character should be done.

spoiler[A case of missing children.
It was nice to see the Undertaker again.
That guy was as weird as ever..
Sebastian actually volunteered for something.
That must be a first, since it was very public.
Damn, he was just blinded by that tiger ^^"
That sure was entertaining LOL
Those circus guys weren't half bad.
I kinda liked them, but there is definitely more to them than meets the eye.]

Another great episode!

Episode 2:

The first episode felt somewhat slow to me but this one really made it up. I just love the spoiler[Noah's Circus arc and for what it is with its character casts. I think all their voices fit so far in particular Joker. We'll find out more about them and their motives later on of course. For now, I am enjoying the show (literally).]

spoiler[Betty is also a cool tiger] tbh.

Episode 3:
I like how spoiler[Ciel is adjusting with some of the circus moves while Sebastian is still looking for any suspicious movements.]

I think spoiler[Joker has taking a liking to him actually calling him a cute kid lol. Ciel's skills are surprising somewhat though. Well it didn't surprise me but for the circus guys. Little do they know in the background lol...]

Anyways, really entertaining episode. I thought Ciel's outfit was decorative and fitting.

It's been a while since I've seenspoiler[ Prince Soma.]
Was nice to see him again.
Didn't even mind the short reminder flashback.
spoiler[Ciel's talent tests] were fun ^^
He sure got a nice beating out of it ROFL
The nickname spoiler[Smile] was hilarious!!
I think spoiler[Sebastian] really likes to play in the circus.
There is definitely something going on in that circus if a spoiler[reaper] is there as well.

Episode 3:

Wow, that was a fantastic episode! I'm almost at a loss for words, it was just so fun and hilarious too. Ciel's circus name was just perfect. I was cracking up the whole time through his tests, and I thought it was so funny how they had Sebastian laughing too. At the same time, the action and mystery surrounding this circus were all executed flawlessly. Sebastian's over-the-top acts were just perfectly in character lol. So far I feel like this season of Black Butler is even better than either of the first two. If it keeps up like this, I think it could be the best show of the summer season.

Snake was PERFECT! I never imagined that each of the snakes would have different "voice" when reading the manga. Terasima was perfectly cast.

LOL @ Ciel's test. I remember laughing out loud when reading that part too. Dagger and Joker's simultaneous "USO!" was cute. Sebastian <3

It's sad that this is only going to be 10 episodes, though that's better than dragging things out. I really hope they decide to animate the rest of the series. I can't imagine that sales for this will be poor.

OnoD's voice as Sebastian absolutely KILLS me. So sexy~!

I'm reminded of how absolutely amazing this series is when they follow the manga which in itself is an amazing work.

Episode 4:

Wow, this show has been impressive to me ever since the first episode. Now that the Circus Arc is well under way, it got even better. I like how the OST was done and the comedy employed as well in particular with Sebastian.

spoiler[Ciel and his new roommate had some awkward conversation. I don't think his roommate saw his other eye but he did manage to see something else....]

Also, it's obvious that the spoiler[Circus has some other motive with their stunts]. I can't wait to see the next episode!

The circus is starting to show itsspoiler[ hidden side.
Sebastian x reaper hear-to-hear]
t was interesting.
spoiler[Smile's roommate] seems like a good kid.
On the other hand spoiler[Sebastian shearing a room with a reaper] is...
Night has fallen and thespoiler[ troupe is up to no good.
Damn, what drug did they give that kid?!]

Sebastian fit right in, but Ciel was just plain hopeless.
He was totally not used to working at all..
Good episode.

Kuroshitsuji is quite literally one of my favorite animes, all the way up there on my bias list.
Calm down there fangirliness.
Yes I do admit that the first episode was your typical "I'm just one hell of a butler" and bringing demonic justice to those evil doers (who simultaneously believe that Ciel is a brat like seriously calm yourself). But then yessss. I was pretty ecstatic that this arc was animated, and I look forward to the rest!
Wonder if they are going to animate the spoiler[zombie ship/Titanic arc, Weston College arc, or the newest forest witch thing]

spoiler[Ciel's past emerging through nightmares.
Damn, he sure has been through a lot.
That meddling Reaper is always in the way..
At least Ciel is feeling better.
Wonder what that Reaper is up to.
He is definitely investigating something.
I was kinda surprised they already returned home.
Their business at the circus doesn't feel finished at all.
First the Reaper and now his Asian friends.
There is always someone in the way..
Next episodes promises action. Can't wait to see it!]
