Black Butler II is one of the many anime programs from Japan that has been redubbed in English to allow American viewers the pleasure of enjoying it. The show has a unique plot focused on a young boy and his faithful butler. This butler is no ordinary man Friday. He is a demon that has entered into a contract to serve his young master with the final payment being the young man's soul. The young master is Ciel Phantomhive. Just outside of London, the earldom of Phatomhive is located on beautiful grounds. On Ciel's tenth birthday, a fire erupts and burns the manor down to the ground, along with both of Ciel's parents. Ciel goes missing for more than a month, but suddenly turns back up with a mysterious figure in black at his side. It turns out that ruthless villains murdered Ciel's parents in front of his eyes before burning Phatomhive Manor to cinders. After the fire, the demon butler named Sebastian Michealis shows up and makes a proposition to the young heir to the Phatomhive earldom. He will help Ciel track down and avenge his parents' killers. However, this vengeance will come at a price. When the last fiend has been brought to justice, Sebastian Michealis will gain possession of Ciel's soul. Unfortunately for both of them, the Earl of Phantomhive is required to be the head of the guards of Queen Victoria. This means that the quest for vengeance is delayed by the need to cater to the queen's every whim. Ciel and Sebastian are constantly forced to hobnob with the nobility and attend tedious official functions. The show moves through back and forth between Victorian London's high society and criminal underworld. This keeps the pace moving and allows viewers to get a truly vast scope of the London of the Victorian era. The show also has a lot of sexuality in it, making it not suitable for younger viewers. The dialogue is full of sexual innuendo, and a lot of bare skin is displayed over the course of the series. Black Butler II is a popular anime that has received a lot of acclaim from both the critics and the general public. It always keeps its viewers guessing about what will come next and what is really going on. There are plot twists around every corner, so fans will quickly become engrossed in this unusual anime.
