Kuroshitsuji is an EPIC anime series! You'll fall in love with it even if doesnt quite fit your genre style, i promise! Its my favorite anime of all time. The animation is very good. I really enjoyed that NO episode was ever boring. You wont regret watching this anime!
This was an enthralling anime, the story line although childish in the beginning has a really dark sense of humor that only some of us can relate to. the unraveling of the plot was exceptional, this anime kept you at the edge of the seat and Sebastian being so amazing, you couldn't help but watch it. the story of the anime revolves around 19th century England. so the Victorian era also adds to the sense of individuality that this anime express. the characters are amazing and funny. However the anime does not follow the manga so while amazing on its own, the manga is ten times that. Definitely worth the watch and read.
As you may already know,i ranked this anime/manga series very high and well it's different for everyone. This series is held in the 1888 back in London where there were slaves, black magic and butlers. Mainly, the story evolves around a very high class boy who seeks revenge on those who made him suffer and have them suffer the same humiliation and to achieve his goal, he trades his soul to a demon who become a loyal butler. Along the journey, they encounter strange people,demons and angels who bring the story together.
I highly recommend this who enjoy mystery and the olden day times.

OK! So i thought this show was really good it had a nice story line to it in season one. It was funny, action packed, and overall entertaining but it went to sh*t after that. Season 2. I hated what they did with the story. When they added the Trancy estate it was stupid. I would have changed so many things about that. First i would have gotten rid of Earl Alois Trancy. He was annoying and really abusive. I would have let ClaudeFaustus stay though. And it would have been some cool battle between demons. And in the end Ciel's soul would be Sebastian's to eat.
this anime is brilliant one of the best animes i have watched the plot is amazing the characters are amazing the animation was awesome and i LOVE the music it fit in with the anime and it was amazing i wouldnt tmake this anime better because it is at its best already. I watch english the voice actors voiced there part very well the voice fit the characters personality so well A Very Well Done to J.Michael Tatum who is the voice of Sebastian in the anime he voiced him very well. I would strongly recommend this anime to anyone this is a brillant anime.

From the plot, it was easy to see that Kuroshitsuji was going to be epic and I'm happy to inform you that it truly was. The storyline was highly original as it started out with a twelve year old boy named Ciel who makes a contract with a Demon, named Sebastian, to help him find the perpetrators who murdered his parents. In return, Sebastian is given the chance to devour Ciel's soul. Although a highly dark anime, Kuroshitsuji was filled with laugh out loud moments, and even some scenes where you have to turn your eyes away due to embarrassment. Yes, even I thought some moments were inappropriate, but it definitely lightened up the mood. Of course, the best aspect about this anime was its characters. Sebastian is obviously a personal favorite. After all, who could hate such an impeccable butler? But I also found myself feeling very attached to Ciel, no matter how cold he could be. Tainted and haunted by such a dark past, it's nearly impossible to not feel something for Ciel and to hope that he achieves peace in the end. Although the last scene was hopelessly bittersweet, I'm glad that it ended the way it did for it was only the only possible ending for such a great anime. Overall, I was very pleased with Kuroshitsuji and I know for a fact you all will too. After all, I'm sure that Sebastian will succeed in entertaining you since he is one hell of a butler.
Kuroshitsuji or better known as "Black Butler" has grasped anime fans hearts(and soul) with a immaculate gloved hand. It takes place in early 1900s England and embraces the time period to the fullest with a demonic twist. The anime was proposed as a yaoi but was denied so as revenge gushes out fanservice making fangirls ravenous over the homosexual references and puns. It is unique and has grown extremely popular since it was first released. Each character has an individual story and was obviously well thought out making it one of my favorite animes.
This series was one of the best anime I have seen. The plot is easy to follow and the characters are awesome. There is only 2 episodes that don't follow the plot, but those episodes are great, nevertheless. =D Please watch the series when you can.

Well, this show ended up scaring the living shit out of me. If you’re not the religious sort, maybe this story about making a pact with hell won’t bother you so much, but if you’re sensitive to the thought of temptation and hatred leading you into the abyss…be careful, because this show doesn't pull any punches.
As is explained in the horribly unfunny and just generally terrible first few episodes, Ciel Phantomhive is a 12-year-old noble in 19th-century London who watches his parents get murdered in their burning estate right before he himself is whisked off to get tortured a lot by masked individuals. Desperate and consumed by hate, he sells his soul to a demon from hell in order to kill his captors, regain his social standing, and exact revenge on whoever destroyed his life. This demon takes the form of Sebastian, a handsome butler who takes on any and all tasks while calmly whispering in the boy’s ear that once his revenge is exacted, he’s going to hell.
In many ways, especially in the earlier episodes, Kuroshitsuji is supposed to be a dark comedy - Sebastian is One Hell Of a Butler, since he’ll dress you in the morning, prepare gourmet meals, and kill your enemies in an ironic fashion. Unfortunately, most of the comedic potential is wasted on a bevy of side characters who couldn't be less funny if they were gassing kittens, and the homo eroticism between Sebastian and his pre-pubescent charge is definitely more disturbing than amusing.
But once Kuroshitsuji eases up on the “wacky” and distasteful humor and moves more toward its incredibly dark premise, things get more interesting. The theme of sin and punishment is always at the forefront, and is reflected by the brutal nature of the comeuppance major characters suffer through. The sadism of the supernatural (and oftentimes evil) characters starts to feel natural and significant rather than, God forbid, “for kink and hilarity value.” The religious referencing is a mixed bag, but it mostly leans toward the Judeo-Christian tradition of good/evil with a heavy dose of mythology and blasphemy - including but not limited to oversexed Grim Reapers with steampunk chainsaws - and manages to be actually interesting at times, which is rare in anime and manga (where Western religious fantasy themes tend to just be distasteful, ala sexy crucifixions). The animation is also tremendously high budget for a show with, in my mind, a pretty niche audience, and the character designs, especially of the adult characters, are crazy and fantastic.
But more than anything, this show is unforgiving - pun intended. It manages to be alluring, what with Sebastian being incredibly attractive, his affection for Ciel being sometimes sweet, and Ciel himself learning about kindness after tragedy…but Kuroshitsuji never forgets that it’s a tale about evil temptation, and that nothing good can come out of a deal with dark forces. I was really surprised with this show - with the grim nature of it, with the huge budget, with the story choices that I’m certain were anime-original, with the risque sex and sexuality thrown in, with the ending. I guarantee that, at the very least, this show is nothing like anything you’ve ever seen before.
…Unless you’ve seen Loveless. I guess it’s got a little in common with Loveless.
