London–the capital of the Great Empire–is once again under siege, as a string of bizarre attacks on British citizens returned from India sends rumours flying and casts a pall upon Queen Victoria’s rule. Send in by Her Majesty, young Earl Phantomhive and his most capable butler, Sebastian, follow a trail that collides head-on with an Indian youth who claims to be a prince. And this prince possesses an extraordinary butler of his own! As a intense rivalry between the two butlers begins to form, will the kitchen be the dueling duo’s final battleground?!

I’ve really been loving Black Butler. The art is amazing, the characters are consistent and aren’t only what they appear. There are definitely going to be more intense volumes with a thrilling and engaging plot. This volume, however, wasn’t one of them. I’m ot a big fan of Prince Soma or his butler. They feel like filler. I’ve noticed this trend with manga. There always seem to be a few volumes here and there that function as filler. It’s kind of annoying to go from the last two amazing volumes to this one. It just fell flat for me. And good lord, there’s going to be more in the next volume. I’m not excited.

This manga is rated Older Teen by Yen Press.

It was pretty good
