Summary and Preview:
To what extent must a housekeeper do things to be acceptable?
One of the noble families of England, Phantomhive's butler, Sebastian Michaels, has unquestionably perfect knowledge, manners, talent with materials, martial arts, etcetera: but is also able to serve a 12 year-old master.
Wearing a grey tailcoat, gracefully brewing the world's strongest black tea, please read on to see how such a perfect butler copes with such a master...
I began reading it, and I love it.
"You don't need that sort of firepower to cook"
"DON'T SAY THINGS LIKE THAT! COOKING IS AN ART! AND ART MEANS EXPLOSIONS!"
Michael Bay, is that you?
I have known about this series for a long time but started reading it today. As I began reading I realized I was already done with volume 1. Used the search function to find it's thread and was shocked it didn't even exist. I created this thread immediately, and now I want to check out the anime too. It's art is top notch, I have to go back to reading now.
Tanaka - "ho ho ho" , this makes me laugh every time. ^_^
This is a really good series. The anime is like 1/2 filler, but they're making a second one... which will probably just be the same thing with like the two other arc they finished/will have finished by then in the manga. It's pretty popular. At least it's the only good manga in GFantasy...
Yen Press has licensed this under the name "Black Butler". I don't know about release dates yet. But I sure as hell am gonna start collecting this
You can buy the first volume of Black Butler published by Yen Press on January 26, 2010, and you won't be the only one.
It's already in book stores, my store put it on sale last week. I guess online stores get a strict lay down date, for manga terrestrial stores can sell whenever we get in stock. Early last week in Black Butlers case.
Who else is loving the current arc? o/
It's the perfect who done it murder mystery you have at those parties except this time it's real. I'm completely clueless on who the murderer is and I only have my gut feeling telling me who I believe is the culprit. I miss Sebastian but it's nice to see how they deal with the current situation with the demon around.

So since it has been licensed and put down by various manga host sites, does that mean that there will be no group scanlating it anymore? In that case I guess I'll have to wait for a couple of years to finally read further into the story.. >_>'
I hope we won't have to wait years to read the story. But it will probably require more patience, because the scans will appear later and it might take some searching online to get them. Let's just keep the zen attitude
And I'm really curious to see when Sebastian does his resurrection shtick. Or maybe he intends to stay dead until they solve the mystery...
Oh yeah, this is going to be one hell of an arc. All because of one word, zombies! More blood and action from this series will be nice to see, it's always fun when there's an onslaught of killing zombies. No holding back and you can just kill them and any object can become a weapon.
Wow, chapter 55 has soared above all my expectations. When I first looked at the high heel, I thought it was going to be our first female shinigami, I was sorta wrong. The biggest queen in manga returns! I even had to look up his name, Grell Sutcliff. The smile gave him away but it's going to be such a fun arc. I think he will have a rematch with Sebastian very soon!
I'm happy about Grelle, but this arc itself is kind of blah. I think Toboso realized that as well, and that's why she threw in everybody's favorite character,and a blatant Titanic allegory.
So...........there is a Kuroshitsuji thread on MH after all, anyone read this chapter? what do you think will happen to Ciel?
