posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga UK is releasing Black Butler II on DVD on Monday. The three-disc collection contains the twelve episodes from the TV run of the sequel series, plus the six additional episodes released as OAVs in Japan, including the two-part Ciel in Wonderland.
The series is a sequel to the Victorian supernatural anime Black Butler, released on U.K. DVD in 2011, and based on a manga by Yana Toboso. The original series 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. Black Butler II is set fifteen months after the dramatic conclusion to the original show.
Manga is also releasing the third volume of the series Fairy Tail, carrying episodes 25 to 36 of the fantasy saga. The fourth volume will be released on September 17.
