Kuroshitsuji II

My Age Rating: 13+

Genre: Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Shounen, Supernatural

Official Age Rating: 13+

"Features two new main characters, Alois Trancy as the master and Claude Faustus as the butler - Ciel and Sebastian are still present."

It's been a while since I watched it, but I remember it well enough.

The second series of Black Butler, whilst shorter, was just as good as the first. We were introduced to brand new characters, who are something of a parallel to Ciel and Sebastian:

Alois, the fun-loving and bratty young Lord, and Claude, the serious, manipulative demon.

The story continues from that of Series 1, with Sebastian still endeavouring to claim Ciel's soul, and acting as his Butler as he does so. The staff of Phantomhive Manor also return, just as funny as before.

I really enjoyed the storyline of this series. Although it has less side-stories, the main storyline is engaging and has plenty of humorous moments of its own.

Once again, I cannot divulge much information without utterly ruining the anime for new audiences. There are also a few other brand new characters, including some that at first glance you might think are old characters.

A warning: there are some scenes that are rather suggestive.

My only real complaint about this series is how short it is. The predictability is reduced, that's for sure, and there's a fantastic balance to the moods.

My Rating: 5/5

Recommend? Take a wild guess. Of course! It's better than Series 1 (and I thought that would be difficult), and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Two demons, new characters and two brats. Yeah. That's a recipe for fabulous.
