Full of wonder and excitement, the Noah's Arc Circus troupe has captured audiences with their dazzling performances. Yet these fantastic acts do not come without a price. Children have mysteriously gone missing around London, correlating to that of the group's movements. Unsettled by these kidnappings, Queen Victoria sends in her notorious guard dog, Ciel Phantomhive; and his ever-faithful demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, on an undercover mission to find these missing children.

Trying to balance their new circus acts with their covert investigation under the big top, however, proves to be quite a challenge. With the other performers growing suspicious and the threat of the circus' mysterious benefactor looming overhead, what the two discover will shake Ciel to his very core.

(Volumes 6-8, chapters 24-37) Previously, the arc was skipped from season 1 (occurs after the Curry Arc).

Taken for granted though, Black Butler: Book of Circus continues the fantasy adventure of a young boy and ...

This arc takes place sometime after Madam Red's incident from the first season.

I am left speechless about what to say about this season. All the things that happen in this season is just so fuutsu(normal) that i just can't think of anything unique to write about this. Oh, i just remembered something. Was there so many shotacons(lolicons being 'lolita complex' and shotacon being 'shouta complex', shouta means small boy-the male version of loli) in the 19th Century? Or is this to please the fanbase of shotacons who want to see this or that done ...

If this didn't have snake or doll this would be unwatchable. it is only for edgy shock value and the creepiest anime character ever made that people still inexplicably ship with a 13 year old.

The anime is like watchable in the first half not gonna lie, they had us, and then BOOM it all went down hill and started being really really edgy and really really really have Sebastian do horrible things cause he's a horrible person. Why must he be so close to this child? Constantly? Because he’s traumatized and is basically being groomed by this stupid demon that wants to literally eat him.
