The stage of Kuroshitsuji II opens on the life of Alois Trancy, the young heir to the Trancy earldom. Though he is privileged now, such was not always the case for the hot-tempered boy. Kidnapped and forced into slavery at a young age, he was eventually rescued and returned home, only to have his beloved father pass away soon after.

However, there are certain individuals who doubt Alois' story and legitimacy. And rightfully so, because things in the Trancy household are not as they appear, starting with Alois' black-clad butler with supernatural abilities, Claude Faustus. Who exactly is the mysterious Claude, and what connection does he have with Alois?

Amid the web of lies and deceit running rampant in the mansion, the bond between Alois and Claude will be tested as hell itself arrives at their doorstep.

Kuroshitsuji II is the sequel to Kuroshitsuji. The second season features two new main characters: Earl Alois Trancy and his butler Claude Faustus. Many characters from the previous season return as well, including Ciel Phantomhive and Sebastian Michaelis.

The second season is formatted similar to its predecessor, airing on ten different stations. The second season had an official magazine, Black Tabloid, released before its on-air date on July 1, 2010. It has been compiled onto a total of nine DVD releases. All 12 episodes share the theme song SHIVER for the opening, but two different animation sequences accompany it; the first ran from episodes 25-32, while the second ran from episodes 33-36.

FINALLY got around to finishing this season and with that Black Butler comes to a close. I've officially seen all the Black Butler anime content and I have to say... it has been a fun ride!!! I love Sebastian and Ciel so much, they are my OTP!!! Judge me all you want, but I was here for the fan service and I stayed for the content <3 <3 <3

The visuals here are even better than the first season, and the character development keeps getting better. There are clear differences in character dynamics from the first season.. you can literally feel the growth. Sebastian and ...

Mixed Feelings
Season two of the 13 year old that signed his soul away to a demon for some muddled reason he never follows through on until the finale.

No not Ciel, the other kid! Yes, we're doing this again only with a "we are not so different" kind of mirror image rival.

One thing you'll notice in every single review of S2 is this line (this is fanfiction, it's not from the manga.) This line sums up the entire season. You have the same aesthetic, same style, characters from S1 return AND you get double the fun with not just one hell of a butler but two.

If you ...

Read the manga

Don't watch this. It's like they shredded the plot and characters through an AI and asked it "write the worst possible thing in existence", used its script, and animated it while drunk. Strange, abnormal amount of fanservice, weird fujoshi bait (for EVERY pairing you can imagine) and some wildly unnecessary gore. The timeline is so messed up I don't even understand how the animators understood what they were doing--it's not messed up in a fun, creative way, just in a bad, messy way.

So watch it if you want to get an all around experience of Black Butler, but make sure to read ...
