Book Description

When one curtain falls upon the big top stage, another rises behind the scenes, as young Earl Ciel Phantomhive and his virtuoso butler, Sebastian, face off against the villain behind the missing children. But as Sebastian, under orders from his master, single-handedly draws the gruesome tale to its sad conclusion on one front, battle lines are drawn on another! With the masterless Phantomhive Manor under attack from the Noah's Ark Circus and Sebastian nowhere nearby to protect its inhabitants, is Ciel's home once again headed for the same tragedy that took the lives of the young earl's parents?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreakingly brilliant 18 Feb. 2012
    By Tuulia
    Format:Paperback
    How I've been waiting for this volume! It brings to the end the circus arc, in a way that is rather heartbreaking. One of my main grievances with the anime is how they messed up this part - cutting out all the circus people and turning the attack on Ciel's mansion into a farce. This is one of the darkest volumes so far; some ugly things happen, and also to people who really don't deserve it, people who you'd love to see live happily ever after.

    And anyone who's been hating the three servants is in for a surprise...

    The last chapter returns to the silly comedy, with a rather eccentric tailor, Miss Nina, coming to make new clothes for Ciel. There is one interesting thing she mentions in passing, though: Ciel's measurements haven't changed at all since the last time. I remember there being another time where someone pointed out Ciel hasn't been growing... I've my own theories about this, but maybe I won't get into that here.

    Brilliant volume, which anyone who likes the dark side of Black Butler will love.

    5.0 out of 5 stars 5/5 2 Mar. 2013
    Format:Paperback
    This volume of Black Butler may just be the best one yet. The seventh volume (which I bought last November) may have one of the series' greatest cliffhangers, and volume eight follows it up superbly.

    I particularly adored the bumbling servants being revealed to be utter badasses. Maylene, the clumsy maid, is actually a deadly marksman. Finnian, the lackadaisical gardener, is actually a super strong escaped experiment. Tanaka, the other butler, is an old man with expertise in martial arts. And Bardroy, the inept chef, is a war veteran with a massive stock of weapons and knowledge of explosives and ballistics.

    Then it was really quite sad to see all the poor circus members dying off one by one. Geez, manga, angst-fest much? And Doctor revealing himself to be one of the biggest monsters in the series yet, killing a really young child in front of main character Ciel just to show him how he makes prosthetic limbs out of the ground-up bones of small children. D: Ciel has a panic attack and orders Sebastian to burn the place down and kill everyone, which he does. With aplomb.

    Ciel really kind of frightened me in this volume. The way he authorises Sebastian to burn down an entire mansion with innocent children still trapped in cages and stuff... And then, when they go to the Renbourne Workhouse where the circus members were supposed to have lived as children, he waxes lyrical about the nature of humanity and how dark and disgusting we are and Sebastian just smiles and agrees with him! Even on the train there, he says the orphans would be better off dead anyway. And he has a comment or two about how Ciel's soul is so different from all the others he's tasted in the past and how he can't wait to devour it!
