"Black Butler Season Two is definitely a welcomed edition to the series. It fits within the rules it sets for itself, without need for changing the viewers understanding of the world it portrays. While the first brings everything to a tragic end, this season tops its tragedy and even brings better closure to the wider cast of characters. The visuals and audio also keeps up the snuff, though the OVAs were a bit hit or miss. For the same price for about three-fourths the total amount of episodes of Season One, it is up to fans to decide if they shell out the cash, but it is certainly a perfect addition to lovers of the first season."
