Manga UK has tweeted that it will release both the series Black Butler II and its OVA spinoff Black Butler II: Ciel in Wonderland in July. In subsequent tweets, Manga said it would be releasing the anime as a three-disc Complete Series Collection, which would consist of 18 episodes. (The TV run of Black Butler II consists of 12 episodes; there were also six additional episodes released as OAVs, including the two-part Ciel in Wonderland.)
The original Victorian supernatural anime Black Butler was released on U.K. DVD in 2011, based on a manga by Yana Toboso. It featured a twelve-year old aristocratic boy (Ciel Phantomhive) and his impeccably handsome, soft-spoken, black-suited butler Sebastian. Phantomhive comes from a line of unofficial royal servants, investigating cases that conventional police can't solve. The nature of Sebastian becomes clear during the series, as he helps Ciel fight various supernatural adversaries.
