Kuroshitsuji II to Debut in July with New Butler, Master

The official website of the Kuroshitsuji anime has confirmed on Monday that the Kuroshitsuji II sequel will premiere in July with a new butler and a new master. The new cast of Takahiro Sakurai as the butler Claude Faustus and Nana Mizuki as the master Alois Trancy was revealed during "Sono Shitsuji, Kyōsō ~Akai Valentine~," Sunday's event for purchasers of the seventh and eighth DVD volumes of the first series.

The second season was announced during the "Sono Shitsuji, Shūshō ~Saigo no Bansan o Anata to Tomo ni~" event last June. Yana Toboso draws the original Kuroshitsuji manga about Sebastian Michaelis, an impeccable butler who can carry out practically any task his 12-year-old master Ciel requires of him — partly because he is a demon. Neither Sunday's event nor the official website have announced whether Sebastian or Ciel will appear in the second season. According to a notice for Sunday's event, Toboso personally drew the new characters of the second series.

Erratum: Claude's surname should be Faustus. Thanks, CutieTess.
