There’s nothing quite as charming as a Faustian pact between a bitter thirteen-year old bent on revenge and a posh, smooth-talking demon who claims to be “one hell of a butler”. With lovely Victorian aesthetics, a heavy Gothic lolita flair and a surprising amount of action, it’s no wonder why Black Butler is a long-standing fan-favorite. With an on-going manga and at least two anime seasons, it’s high time for Black Butler to get the Blu-ray treatment–providing cleaner animation and reintroducing this late-2000s classics to old and new fans alike.
Also, any series that can turn a pun into a recurring catch phrase is pretty golden in my book.
