Not Your Ordinary Butler
Updated: Feb 7
Good morning my loyal Painkillers, anime fans, and newbies to the site. Welcome to another edition of Anime Wednesday. Today I have a good one for you. So what do you when you have been tortured, and your parents have been killed? You team up with a demon, disguised as your butler to get your revenge. Here is Black Butler.
The series is set in Victorian-era London, and it follows Ciel Phantomhive. He is part of an aristocratic family know as the Queen’s Guarddog. On his 13th birthday, the Phantomhive manor was attacked, killing Ciel’s parents, and his dog. Ciel was kidnapped, solded into slavery, where he was abused physically and sexually. When his captures try to summon a demon, the demon made deal with Ciel, saving his life. The demon disguises himself as Ciel’s butler, and going by the name Sebastian, the name of Ciel’s dead dog. Together they solve crimes, and try to find out who killed Ciel’s parents.
This show is dark as hell, but I love it. If you haven’t figured it out by reading this, this anime is not for everyone. If you want to watch this show, you will have to do some work. The show has 3 seasons, but it seems that they are all over the place. Season one is on Netflix. Season 2 and 3 are a bit harder to find. Well if you can get through season one, and like it you can hunt down season 2 and 3. Until next time everyone!
