"Black Butler is an amazing series that plays host to a lot of awesome characters and suspense through the show. This is a show for people that love dark and comedy mixed together, with meaning sprinkled upon the top. It is also now one of my favorite animes and really only begs where it can go with a second season. But, I can assure that Black Butler Season One is definitely worth a look."
