For an impeccable butler like Sebastian Michaelis, the word “impossible” is just not in his vocabulary. Everything demanded of him under the English sun is well within his grasp. But do his talents extend to things under the scalding Indian sun?! As Harold West Jeb’s plan to use Agni, Price Soma’s superhuman butler, in a curry battle to win himself a Royal Warrant is exposed, Earl Ciel Phantomhive sets Sebastian to the task of creating an incomparable curry to defeat the despicable trader. But how can Ciel’s devil of a butler possibly best Agni, the man with the Right Hand of God?!

I wasn’t nearly as disappointed by this one. I think it’s because I was expecting it to be kid of lame. It kind of was, but I also warmed up to the prince a little. He’s good for comic relief sometimes. Still, I couldn’t take any of the material in these last two volumes seriously. They didn’t do much to further the over storyline. I want to know more about why Ciel made his deal with Sebastian. I like when this manga gets dark. That kind of feeling suits it much more than the shenanigans. I’m ready for the next one. Please let it be a million times better!

It was pretty good
