Anime Description: Black Butler

Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) is a wonderful anime, full of dark, eccentric and amusing characters, adapted from the original manga, written by Yana Toboso.

Ciel Phantomhive, heir to the Phantomhive household, signs a contract with a demon, who becomes his gracious, courteous and talented butler, Sebastian Michaels. So Sebastian Michaelis is now a butler serving the 12 year old head of the Phantomhive family, and strangely has perfect knowledge, skills, and talent at everything. He does anything that his master wants and carries out his tasks with perfection due to the fact that he is a demon and the pentacle symbol in Ciel's right eye is a contract that binds him to his master's will.

Despite Ciel's young age, his intentions drive him to use his royal relatives and servants as his chess pieces, only to realize his goal through using Sebastian.

Throughout the series, Ciel finds himself meeting very interesting characters, ranging from psychotic shinigamis to lonely princes and much more, using his contract with Sebastian to help him along the way.
