Black Butler tells the story of Ciel Phantomhive and his superhuman servant, the butler Sebastian, as they work cases in sevice of the Queen.

It's not me who is a big fan of this series, but my mother, who is also into anime and manga... and this series had a lot of the things she likes, action with violence, and nice artwork.

Let's discuss here!





(Edited out the Japanese title because the inconvenient positioning of four letters in romanization censors it, as I figured.)

"cases in service for the queen" is this a mystery as well as action series? Was wondering if I should check it out...

This series is quite a bit better than you'd think and the artwork is fantastic on top of it. I would definatly recommend checking it out if you haven't done so already! The latest Japanese volume has Undertaker on the cover....

New Black Butler figure announced...but not made by SE.


myfigurecollection.net/item/115341 (http://myfigurecollection.net/item/115341)


This company also has some Soul Eater statues in the work, including one that anyone who's watched the anime/read the manga will recognize.

Please take note, SE, that people are asking for you to make some more figures for Soul Eater and BB other than just the meager Trading Arts!!!

I'm sorry, I just want a lil' clarification on something. Isn't Yen Press publishing this series in NA? Why is S-E advertising it?


That said, I've been reading this for a while now. I've lost track of how far the story has gone, but I'm trying to grab the manags as they come out ^^

Black Butler, Soul Eater and others were originally published in SE manga anthologies in Japan and SE has all the rights to those series. (FMA included.) While SE's Gangan arm publishes their own Manga in Japan, they have no such publishers in North America or the rest of the world and other companies pick up the right to print and distribute these titles outside Japan. Yen Press has picked up a majority of SE's Manga titles but not all of them as Viz Media owns the publication rights to Fullmetal Alchemist. (The Japanese version of FMA manga has the Gangan label whereas those published for release here have the Viz logo.)


When it's all said and done SE still has all say over how and when these titles are released across the world: but I'm happy that they've kept the cover artwork and the like entact.


Hope this helps clear things up a little! :D
