    To answer the questions of neko_3197 and any others.
    The ending of Black Butler season 2 doesn't count as canon. Put simply, everything past the curry arc was retconned out of existence. The whole story after the curry arc was an anime original, thus not treated as canon among Kuroshitsuji fans. This is why the anime starts off like it does, with Ciel still human. This anime is great, and it shall remain true and faithful to the manga's storyline ...

    Most mindblowing Black butler series.
    The animation has improved since series 2 , and the style really shows what ciel and Sebastian go through. I've never wanted the next episode of a series to come out so bad! This show makes you laugh , Cry, and curious. I strongly recommend it.
    Lets see what the series brings us.

    Season 2? What Season 2?
    Totally blew the 2nd season out of the water, never to be seen again (Hopefully). Kuro is an amazing anime/manga that although gives you a laugh here and there, never strays away from the plot, as well as it's great characterization. 5/5 stars would recommend that you watch Season 1 up until episode 15 and stay away from Season 2.
    Best regards.

    Sebastian does it again
    I can never get enough of Black Butler. The second season was pretty good but this season just blows it out of the water. The circus setting adds an extra creepy atmosphere to the show. The shows perfectly blends serious action and drama with dark comedy. 5/5 would recommend.

    Nothing but Pleasant.
    Rather than beautiful I would mark it as Interesting.
    Until now it hasn't blown my expectations, however it's know that Yana Toboso's work gets usually to the action further into the story.
    There are still some questions that need to be answered.
    My self, I can't wait to see the next chapter.

    Kuroshitsuji (the canon part)
    First off, I'm sooo happy that Crunchyroll put out this season of Black Butler! The art style has really improved and really does these characters justice. Some people can be confused by this "third season" if you watched the first and second season of Black Butler. To put it simply, this is the canon part (following the manga) that occurs right after the Curry Arc in season one. So ...

    I love Kuroshitsuji--but be forewarned, this is cannon unlike the second season.
    Like I said, this is the cannon storyline in the manga--unlike season two with Alois Trancy and all of that jazz. Everyone seems to have hated that season, but I liked it! Even just as a fanfiction of sorts. Just my opinion.

    Anyway, the themes of this season are dark, involving satanic bloodrites of the elite, illegal experiments with dead bodies, kidnapping, wanton murder and bloodshed, and a ...

    Kuroshitsuji Manga vs. anime
    Black Butler is a great manga series, I honestly prefer the manga because it's much longer and better story line during those events, i highly recommend the manga if you have time to see this amazing supernatural demonic novel.

    One of the best manga adaptations ever!
    If you are trying to watch Kuroshitsuji Series (Black Butler) for the first time, this is not the place where you should start. First you should know that this is the third season of the series. You should begin with Kuroshitsuji or Black Butler, and the come here. Kuroshitsuji II is a story completely apart from the original manga story, and not that good for my taste. So the order would be, ...

    Disappointment Turned Ecstatic
    I can't begin to describe how let down I was by Season 2, despite knowing that it was an original work that strayed from the manga (not to mention the second half of Season 1 but Season 2 went and turned Ciel into a demon so...). When I heard about this arc I recognized it instantly. Perhaps one of the most entertaining and richly furnished with characters arcs in the manga (now in the ...
