According to a scan of the cover from the upcoming issue of GFantasy magazine, it will be announced that a new Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) anime series has been green-lit. No other information on the series has been given at this time.

Two anime seasons have aired thus far. The first season aired in October 2008 and adapted the manga. The second season aired in July 2010 and was anime-original, introducing a new butler and master. It is currently unknown if the new anime will follow the manga or be an anime-original story.

Update March 22
It was announced that the new Kuroshitsuji anime will be both a TV series and an OVA series.

The TV series is subtitled Book of Circus and will air July 2014 in the Animeism block. It will adapt the Noah's Ark Circus Arc, picking the manga story back up from the point at which they diverged. This arc immediately follows the Curry Contest Arc in the manga, which ended at episode 15 in the first season of the anime.

The OVA is subtitled Book of Murder and will pre-screen in theaters Fall 2014. It will adapt the Phantomhive Manor Murder Case Arc, which follows the circus arc in the manga.

Book of Circus Additional Cast
Joker: Mamoru Miyano
Doll: Ayahi Takagaki
Beast: Yuko Kaida
Dagger: Nobuhiko Okamoto
Snake: Takuma Terashima

I've never seen any Kuroshitsuji animes as of yet.

Might be worth checking out now that there's a new one coming.

Great, but... Will they finally start again from the beginning and stick to the manga, or it'll be another made up thing? If it doesn't follow it, I won't watch it è.é

Ohh I've been meaning to check it out. Now might be a good time to take it off the PTW and start watching.

Fuck yes! I wonder if this will have it's own story or somehow follow the manga? Ciel and Sebby is back.

P.S. I am a guy, in case people think that it's only girls that could enjoy Kuroshitsuji.

Well, the first season bored me so much that I don't even know where I dropped it. I might watch this if there is anything appealing about it but I doubt it.

If it was a Remake it will be a great news!
If it was a made up story like S2 it will be a bad news!
If they will put so many fillers it's gonna be bad news too!

I will pray for it to be a Remake . . .

I'm only interested in this if they start from the beginning again. Too much was changed in the previous anime, and I prefer to pretend season 2 doesn't exist.
I'm not getting my hopes up though.

It's serialized on Gangan, a shonen manga magazine, so i rather fail to see your point.

--------

Regarding the news itself, i'm pretty excited about it despite having forgotten a lot of things from the series. Doesn't help that i dropped the manga 2 years ago since the scanlation during 2011 was extremely slow and i simply had no patience to wait longer. The Live-Action version was rather disappointing (particularly the way they brutally changed the characters and setting), hence i'm going to put my hope for the third version to restore my faith on the series

I am hoping that they'd be faithful to the manga. The next arcs were pretty amazing and it would be a waste not to see those scenes animated.

This is probably because season 2 has a slight yaoi/shounen ai vibe.

I disliked the second season but this brings back some nostalgia. I did begin to read the manga at the end of last year so might as well check this out...

Oohh, this is pretty exciting! I hope it's a remake. I haven't read the manga, but apparently it's really different from the anime.

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

As a huge fan of the manga I am praying for a reboot, but in all honesty I'll take more Kuroshitsuji no matter what it is. ;u;

Didn't seen the first season but seen the second one, it was indeed anime-original. I was like what just happened at the end of Season 2?

I would love it if it covered the Public School Arc of the manga, Sebastian Michaelis as a teacher now that is hot! I bet Lawrence Bluer in anime form would be smoking too XP
But it would be nice if at some point in the third series I would like to see Sebastian and Ciel in another form and not just a butler and master all the time, such as teacher and pupil. Is it obvious yet that I like the Public School Arc? lols

WOW, didn't expect that! Definitely watching, can't wait to see moar Sebasu-chan in action <3 If it's the continuation of the 2nd season though... It'll be pretty terrible.

If "as good as" the season II, will prefer close my eyes until the hell freeze.

Would prefer a reboot - follow the manga, this one is good at least.

Will watch if it follows the manga (Reboot). Season 2 was atrocious.

I can't wait, thank you for letting us know!
The first season seemed to me a bit boring in terms of characters, even though it had a more accessible plot, while the second season had better characters and was confusing as hell.
I hope that the third season follows a new master/servant pair, since following Ciel might not be interesting at this point. And I can't wait to see more of Grell and Undertaker.

You can't deny that Season 2 wrecked BB up.

It'd be nice to see if we could get an adaptation from the actual manga ... No more original plot lines please.

Considering how downright stupid this series got as it progressed, I'm not sure if I'm glad of this. And let's be honest, with Ciel now immortal it really limits where the story can go from here. Will watch, but I don't expect great things after the fluctuating quality of season 1 and the straight-up mediocrity of season 2.

I'm not sure if I should cringe or be excited since Kuroshitsuji is very reminiscent of my short weeaboo phase that took place in summer 2011... I hope they stick with Ciel and Sebastian though >< I really liked Alois as a character but the second season very was 'meh' in my opinion. The main reason I'm excited though is because Finnian was the first anime character I ever really got attached to and loved so yeah c:

I hope they'll make an alternative version just like they did in FMA. Because the manga is awesome.

His point was that although it is shonen, there are "hot guys", so the majority of the Kuroshitsuji fan base are girls

BTW I'm a girl, and I don't read Kuroshitsuji for the guys, I read it for the- oh wait, I HAVEN'T EVEN READ THE BLOODY SERIES lol.

I'll keep smiling brightly at you.
Even when you hurt me.
