Television anime to premiere on July 10

Aniplex began streaming a commercial for the Black Butler: Book of Circus television series this Friday. The commercial confirms that the anime will premiere on July 10 on MBS and also run on TBS, CBC, and BS-TBS.

Aside from the upcoming new television series, an original video anime (OVA) titled Kuroshitsuji: Book of Murder is also in producion. The OVA will be screened in Japanese movie theaters this fall.

The cast and staff for the new projects includes:

SID will return to perform the series' opening theme, "Enamel," and Akira of the band Disacode will make her solo debut performing the series' ending theme.

The manga debuted in Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine in 2006, and Square Enix will publish the 19th volume on June 27. The first 17 volumes have more than 18 million copies in print, including those published in 42 countries and territories. The manga already inspired a television anime series in 2008 and a stage play in 2009. A second television series followed in 2010 with a new butler and master. The manga won the top prize in the shōnen manga category of France's Japan Expo Awards in 2010 and the Best International Manga Award in Germany's ANImagic in 2011.
