In late-nineteenth century England, one year and three months after the dramatic conclusion of the original series, Kuroshitsuji II introduces a new butler and young master. The sadistic yet cheerful Alois Trancy has faced some harsh times. He was kidnapped as a baby, and was forced to work in a village as a slave. Gradually, he lost his parents, his best friend, and everyone he knew. Alois eventually returned home and became the head of his mansion, but seemed to exhibit some strange behavior ever since. Even more curiously, he returned with Claude Faustus, an enigmatic, emotionless butler with unfathomable talent...

Akuma no Shitsuji continues on to the second season. At first, it feels as thought the show has reached the end of the story and the rest is just lengthened to make the story continue longer as seen in many other shounen anime/manga(with the cliche ****sia). But as you keep on watching the continuation finally gives some meaning with an unprecended ending that will surely surprise you.
For those of you craving to see more of the 'ikemen' Sebastian, you'll be surprised to find yet another butler added to the crew called Claude(Just do not droll) with his annoying Master, Alois Trancy. The rest, watch it read more

After I complete the first season, I started to hear the complaints of other fans about Kuroshitsuji II ... that it deviates completely from the manga , that the new characters are horrible and that this series destroyed the franchise. I choose to give it a chance so here is my review of Kuroshitsuji II.
At first, we have the story (9) ! The episodes are only 12 so there aren't many fillers. Instead we have the story of Ciel's return and his clash with the house of Trancy. I was interested to see how Ciel escaped from what happened in Season 1 (which read more

Kuroshitsuji II (Black Butler II) is not a true sequel to the original, or at least I refuse to hail it as such, but it is still an interesting addition to the series and appears to experiment with several archetypes, something I as a writer and literature major can appreciate.

I've heard it called an abortion, a sort of a tragic death to the tragic series about death and mortality, and taken in the aspect of a literal sequel - a direct followup to the Black Butler that received high acclaim - this would indeed be the case. However, what Black Butler II does is not read more

Sequels can be a dangerous territory to tread on. Especially ones for shows that already do not follow the manga but instead, creates its own story. On one hand it has the job of following and wrapping up the previous season’s (to an extent, “original”) storyline and on the other hand, pleasing the fans. To many, Black Butler II has done neither and to others it has done more than that: in other words, there is a clear division between fans.

Let’s get the technicalities out of the way. The art and animation is as beautiful and Victorian-Gothic as the first season, though the animation read more

Anime: Vampire Knight
same Gothic atmosphere . both have comical relief while Kurishitsuji (black butler ) has a dark ambiance it very similar to vampire knight .

Anime: Pandora Hearts
Both are set in the Victorian-era. Both have a human and a demon(/chain) bonded together by a contract.

Anime: Rozen Maiden: Träumend
Wel... where should I start? The relationship between Shinku and Jun (Rozen Maiden) and Ciel and Sebastian (Kuroshitsuji) are somehow similar, because they both have a master and slave relationship. Both series also present themselves as a dark anime, which they aren't except in the end. Both animes are filled with a lot of humor. The plots also don't match with their manga.

Anime: Inu x Boku SS
Very similar comedy/drama division in both.  
reportRecommended by GlorpAceAttorney
Anime: Gugure! Kokkuri-san
Both have a figure in which protects the helpless protagonist.
Both figures that protect the helpless protagonist are voiced by the same person.
Contains 2 voice actors that voice for both Kuroshitsuji II and Gugure! Kokkuri-san. (As far as I know)

Kuroshitsuji II does not share the same comedy in which is protrayed in Gugure! Kokkuri-san.
Although, both anime contain sort of the same supernatural situation, Kuroshitsuji II (contract with a hungry-azz demon) and Gugure! Kokkuri-san (summoning of a loner fox ghost), they do differ from theme and atmosphere, as well as drawing style.

Anime: Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
1. Both series are tragic.

2. Both series have a lot of deceiving and mind screwing plot twists.

3. Both series involves bloodshed.

(Although Requiem for the Phantom has a more realistic feel while Kuroshitsuji II has a supernatural-fantasy feel.)


1. The first Kuroshitsuji is not a strong as the second one and is more focused on comedy. On the other hand, Kuroshitsuji II is darker, more serious, has more action, bloodshed and definitely more mind screwing plot twists. But still, you must see the first one before you could dive into the main course.
/> 2. The same thing goes for Requiem of the Phantom. It started out pretty slow, although it is good, it is not as good as the next time shift and it gets better as it shifts further into the future. read more
