Black Butler is one of the most frustrating anime series of all time. During some scenes, it achieves a mysterious brilliance, molding steampunk with noirish elements.

Scenes of drama are coupled with silly pranks, leaving audience members scratching their head more times than not.

I think a lot of people who go into the series with the preconceived notion that it's heavy on the BL trappings will end up surprised that it's not as blatant as they'd expect. Definitely a palatable show for non-fans of it. At the very heart of the show is a good ole campy romp.

Well tbh i actually saw the 1st season since they didnt kiss or show no naked lil boys. Tried 2nd season they showed that f----- a-- and him in real short shorts i dropped it on the spot.

I only tried it out thinking it was going to be a lot of fighting.
