Earl Ciel Phantomhive's satisfaction in the successful conclusion of the case of the Noah's Ark Circus is fleeting, as Queen Victoria's very own butlers come marching into the Phantomhive manor and comandeer the house and all its residents for a lavish banquet sanctioned by Her Royal Highness. Preparations for such an event are quick work in the hands of the Phantomhive's most able butler, Sebastian, but corralling eminent guests during his young master's first ever attempt at playing host may prove to be rather more of a challenge. For this dinenr party is anything but, and as a stormy night batters the outside of the grand residence, a far more violent storm begins to unfurl within the confines of the manor...and no one is safe from the havoc it will wreak - not even one seemingly impervious manservant...

Volume seven left with the toupe planning to invade the manor. Volume 8 starts with this actually happens. And then t...
Black Butler is a jack of all trades when it comes to manga. It's only been around for going on six years, but in that time it has factored in several tropey-as-all-hell plots: a food tournament, a circus, a locked room murder mystery, a sinking ship infested with zombies, and now a mysterious boar...
This isn't too far from a standard murder mystery, but I'm still enjoying the Kuroshitsuji twist. Even though I've guessed certain plot elements (of course Sebastian's not dead, of course Ciel knows what's up and has likely orchestrated events in some way), I still don't know how everything's gone d...
