Why You Need to Watch “Black Butler”

Black Butler! Personally, it’s one of my favorite manga and anime series of all time. The character design, interesting plot, setting, and dark theme of the series just does it for me; and a lot of other people too! The main story is about the adventures of Ciel Phantomhive, a young Victorian-era “Guard dog” who sells his soul to a demon, trading it for revenge on his torturer and the killer of his parents. To get more info on why you should watch Black Butler: keep reading!


The characters are lovable and memorable

Even after stepping away from the series for a while, Ciel and crew are always fresh in my mind. Most all of the characters have a unique charm and are easy to come to love. The backstories and development of the characters can easily have you riding on an emotional roller coaster.


It provides a perfect clash between historical fiction and sci-fi

If you’re like me, you’re not one for much historical fiction; but Black Butler makes it more modern and fun. Without losing that old-timey feel, of course! The addition of demons and magic into the Victorian era gives the series an interesting twist!


The music is amazingly beautiful

This may not be as important of a deciding factor, but the soundtrack is excellently composed and performed. Taku Iwasaki did wonders to make the series even more enjoyable by making music that complemented the show and it’s atmosphere so nicely. I love it so much that I put it on my phone so I can listen whenever I need some chills-worthy music.


These are just a few reasons why you should watch Black Butler, but I hope I at least sparked some interest in anyone who is reading! ^^
