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 (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 ...

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

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/11 eps)
loyal fan of the kuroshitsuji series ... very loyal to the manga but this particular season has fallen off for me personally. i would still watch it but there is just not as giving as the earlier seasons. there is a visible change to the art style and the art, story combined is giving very much murder mystery in a harry potter f4 fanfiction. the character interaction has gotten less tense and more on the school romance chracters side and lots of dialogue at times, feel very surface level and childish. i guess the storyline in the anime is exactly true to the manga so ...
