There isn't a current active thread on this topic. I hadn't seen it until recently. I've seen Book of Circus.



In Victorian London, the breathtaking performances of the Noah’s Ark Circus have captured the attention of people all across the city. But the spell of magic and wonderment woven under the big top is not without consequences. Children have suddenly begun to vanish, and some suspect these mysterious performers are responsible. In an attempt to get to the bottom of these disturbing disappearances, the dashing duo of demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, and his young master, Ciel Phantomhive, will infiltrate the circus and uncover whatever darkness may lie at its core!


I've also seen some of season one. Ciel's past is very gruesome and can get uncomfortable. His servants are quite amusing and there's the terrifying hell of a butler. I've heard season 2 was horrible.

There's some OVAs too. The one I noticed was Book of Murder.

I love black butler and in my opinion season 2 was OK but in all honesty could of been better and well longer. Book of circus was amazing and it really followed the manga amazingly well.

Thing is season 1 follows the manga up to the cooking competition (I think episode 13 or 14) then after that it follows it's own story and same with season 2 it has it's own story.

Right after the cooking competition book of circus happens and the movie book of murder happens after the book of circus.

So if you really want the true story it goes: season 1 up till the cooking competition (episode 13 or 14) then book of circus, and then book of murder.

The rest of season 1 and and season 2 is irrelevant and doesn't follow the manga at all.

Black butler if they animate the rest of the manga is going the way of Fullmetal alchemist series where the regular fma didn't follow the manga while brotherhood did.

So the same thing might be happening to black butler and looks like it is in my opinion.

Next arc that should be animated is the ship arc. No idea what they would call it though, book of ship is not really a good name (in my opinion lol.)

I heard somewhere that it would be Book of Atlantic.

Oh and I like Sebastian's fascination with cats. Where would he find one on a ship?

Book of Atlantic is going to be a movie. Looking forward to it. http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2016/02/17-1/black-butler-book-of-the-atlantic-anime-movie-announced That's my favorite arc in the manga.

I'll look out for it.

I have to say that I did like the invention of Pluto for the anime.
