At the request of Queen Victoria, Earl Ciel Phantomhive goes to Weston College—a prestigious public academy for boys, known for its traditions and outstanding curriculum—to search for a relative of hers who has not returned home in months. Thanks to his noble status, the 13-year-old Ciel is swiftly able to enroll as a student, while his devilish butler Sebastian Michaelis assumes a teaching position at the school.

Ciel does not anticipate being unable to locate the Queen's relative on campus. To make matters worse, he cannot request a meeting with the headmaster of the college, who may be the only person that knows anything pertaining to the disappearance. The only ones in frequent contact with the headmaster are the heads of the college dormitories, known as the Prefect 4 (P4): Edgar Redmond, Lawrence Bluewer, Herman Greenhill, and Gregory Violet.

Ciel must concoct a plan to get in the P4's good graces if he wants to use their connections to succeed in his mission. But the distinguished college and its students hide much that is unseen, making this task more improbable than he could imagine.

Preliminary (4/11 eps)
I think any fan would enjoy this season as much as the last.

This season so far, with a few epsiodes out at the moment. It's great!

Animation is a million times better.

The dub cast seems to have fully returned and they kept the accents!

Characters act just how I remember

Preliminary (6/11 eps)
really nice for now, initially I was skeptical about the change of style, in the first 2 episodes especially the animation is mechanical in certain parts, but now it has improved a lot.
After 7 years of waiting I'm really happy that they animated this arc, which despite being a little less "dark" than the others is very interesting.
I hope we could have a fifth season with the Emerald Witch arc, which will bring back a dark tone to the work, I'm sorry that many didn't even want to give this season a chance due to the change of studio animation, without reflecting on the fact ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (10/11 eps)
As an all-time lover of Kuroshitsuji this season kind of let me down on most if not all traits that made... Kuroshitsuji unique.

The art change isn't bad however I couldn't cope with the color palette - the whole dark vibe of Ciel disappeared, and it feels like Ciel is now a whole new character. Remember in the Circus Ark when he struggled to smile, and even got his Smile nickname? Oh boy, this season Ciel is a smiling machine, although it is all an act it still feels off knowing how Ciel used to be.

On the other hand, we have an almost useless Sebastian who ...
