Summary

From Yen Press:

Just a stone’s throw from London lies the manor house of the illustrious Phantomhive earldom and its master, one Ciel Phantomhive. Earl Phantomhive is a giant in the world of commerce, Queen Victoria’s faithful servant…and a slip of a twelve-year-old boy. Fortunately, his loyal butler, Sebastian, is ever at his side, ready to carry out the young master’s wishes. And whether Sebastian is called to save a dinner party gone awry or probe the dark secrets of London’s underbelly, there apparently is nothing Sebastian cannot do. In fact, one might even say Sebastian is too good to be true…or at least, too good to be human…

    another twisted episode!! XD
    i believe the theory of ciel being the other twin seems to be confirm in the Anime Book Of Circus if u pay attention to the flash back on episode 8.
    http://animeshow.tv/Kuroshitsuji-Book-of-Circus-episode-8-mirror-2/

    Can't wait for the next capter!! ><

    • Katty October 29, 2014 6:13 pm

      It can neither be confirmed or disproven (It can be disproven more so than proven but still...). The animation proves nothing given that it is riddled with fan service, alterations, and filler, it is not a reliable source (even if it does follow the arc to an extent.) Looking back on those chapters I see no child hiding behind Vincent, or any indication that there was. What is fact is that someone was with Ciel inside the cage, it could be a friend that he pictured with his face representing his innocence.

      As for twin, chapter 10 page 16 pretty much throws that out the window. Only one child is there. As for translation error, a really reliable translator confirmed that Madame Red said "nephew" and not "nephews".

      Also, the twin theory makes no sense. If Ciel were to have the twin why would the twin need to hide behinds his brothers name? He wouldn't need to. Why? Because, given that Vincent and Rachel are dead, and if the older twin died too the heritage (money, the title of Watch Dog and all of that) would fall to the younger twin. So there would be no need to hide it.

      I believe the friend theory more so than the imposter or twin theory. There was this really good Facebook argument over on Mangahere concerning that, and I advise reading that, it made for a good read, and had a hell of a lot of sense too it.

      Other than that, I'll ask kindly that we don't get into that theory again. It's caused enough problems here, and other sites as well. I'm just kindly asking. Let's enjoy the chapters as they come, and not worry about that until it happens shall we. Thank you.

    im realy glad I had a chance to read this , after falling in love with the three series of the black butler anime.....who wouldn't be drawn to see what happened in the manga and to my surprize there is so much material that the creators of the anime series could use. though after reading this I do question where the source of the animes endings and the second series with alois trancy came from. though the spin of series about the circus arc was great too , the manga certainly has a lot of story after their events that could be used as I follow up after the circus arc. I also hope that we will get to see what could happened to ciel and Sabastian after ciel became a demon at the end of the second season. I was kinda hoping I was gonna see what happened after in the manga but alas no happy moments. still that doesn't mean we wont get to see them in the future again. I hope we will because this story has been proven to be a hugh success and will continue to do so in the future. especially since my biggest wish is to see what ciel will be like as a demon. after all at the end of the second series as the story came to its end ciel said to sabastians reply "where are we going now" ciel replyed "somewhere where human and demons can be together". hopefully we will get to see them back in action soon. xxx

      It is very unlikely that there will be a sequel to season 2. When shows that diverged from the original story begin to actually follow it, there's no turning back. Season 2's plot came out of nowhere, made little to no sense, and had a rather mixed reception anyway so it would be kind of dangerous and pointless to continue with that. I think that they never intended to make a season 2 when they did season 1, it's ending was pretty perfect and should've been left to that, but they saw the potential to make more money out of the license so they went on and made a sequel. Now that they've got enough material from the original and has begun to adapt it they're probably going to stick with it. They made season 1 when there was a less than 30 chapters (anime began in 2008, manga began in 2006), so they had little to no choice if they wanted to make a good ending to the anime instead of just ending it halfway through. My two cents, I just wouldn't get my hopes up.

    • Katty October 25, 2014 9:49 pm

      Anonymous is correct fenni. Not only that, but with how many fans hated (I'm not kidding, so many fans tell them to ignore it.) the S2, it's very unlikely of an official 3rd season.

      I hope you read the manga from the beginning because S1 wasn't faithful to the manga either. It diverged right in the first episode, "Damian" wasn't evil nor was his name even "Damian" it was Sir Clause, and he didn't die. episode 2 was chapter 3-4, episode 3 was actually chapter 2, 4-6 followed the manga but with alterations that really don't make them quite canon (This happened in Book of Circus, fillers and alterations), 7-12 were filler. 13-15 were canon but with alterations and filler too. I'm glad you are reading the manga. I met this person on the web that refused to read the actual source material because they believed the anime was the true essence of Kuroshitsuji which is not true. The manga is the true dark story.

      As for Alois and Claude, when you get to the school arc, you'll see the real characters that inspired those two. A vice principal and some bratty kid that tries to get Ciel in trouble.

      As for the ending to the manga, Yana has made it clear that their will not be a happy ending. She said so on her blog once. The only happy ends exist in the anime, the manga only has bittersweet or tragic ends.

  3. Katty October 24, 2014 6:25 pm

    As a reminder. On October 25, the first part of Book of Murder hits theaters in Japan (meaning sometime today or tomorrow, or some time after we'll be able to watch it). The second part will be released on Nov. 15th.

    It seems that, instead of Claude, it will be the undertaker who will be taking Ciel away from Sebastian

    but I've got to say that Sebastian is head over heal :)

    • Katty October 23, 2014 7:32 pm

      Thank you lolkka for making me want a threesome between those three.. Ah, why can't anyone do a DJ doing that.. TT It would surely be hot. Undertaker and Sebastian both "playing" with Ciel. Though I do have to say, I love possessive Sebby.

      Huh, annoying button? I'm sorry I'm using the old version, much more comfortable for me to use than the new (I don't like it), so I don't know about that feature. But if you did click it by accident, that's okay, accidents happen. At least you warned about it, and apologized for it. (I don't think many do that.)

      (Personally, if they do have it, I guessing it gets abused a lot.)

      personally i think he is going to end up having another stray in the house.

    • Katty October 19, 2014 8:31 pm

      He's not going to do it. He's just taking a page from Sebastian. I doubt he'd want her to meet the queen as a frighten child so he gave her a choice.

    • Makes sense October 19, 2014 10:08 pm

      It makes sense though. She is capable of creating this incredibly deadly gas. Would you leave someone like that in a country that while not an enemy certainly isn't a friend? She's basically a weapon in and of herself! There's a reason why everyone is so jumpy about countries having nukes... So basically Ciel is simply saying: Either become OUR nuke, or I'm disarming you. Which while cold and heartless is logical

    • Katty October 20, 2014 7:26 pm

      @Make sense: I love they way you compared that. I started laughing when you mentioned nukes. The old lady proclaimed that mustard gas was the deadliest weapon, I wonder how'd she'd feel if she knew about us dropping the atomic bomb.

    • Katty October 19, 2014 8:30 pm

      It's monthly updated, not weekly like Magi is. The reason is because it takes a pretty long time for the chapter to come together, just read Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, it will help you understand how a manga comes about.

    Here's the chapter. (Again I'm glad that person lied about it coming out the 20th.)

  15. andy October 16, 2014 7:03 pm

    I feel bad for the girl. Really, they literally messed up her childhood but if she was gonna join sebastian and ciel, I guess it won't make a difference.

    • Katty October 16, 2014 7:29 pm

      Problem is, Yana has been extremely vague on whether she'll join them or not. I have a feeling she might not, given that just about every arc ending is either tragic or bittersweet. It's possible she might, but it is also possible she might die or become enslaved by the queen somehow (some peoples money is on that.). Anyways, I'm excited for the new chapter, what about you?

  16. Katty October 14, 2014 10:39 pm

    The chapter won't come out until the 20th, or so someone else told me today. So, we got to wait a little longer.

    • Katty September 29, 2014 9:40 pm

      Currently, it's 1889 in the manga. And the radar technology is actually quite common for that time. The design is a little more futuristic, but the technology is within the timeline. And considering we are close to the First World war, it's not that surprising.

      Radio waves Radio waves were first predicted by mathematical work done in 1867 by Scottish mathematical physicist James Clerk Maxwell. Maxwell noticed wavelike properties of light and similarities in electrical and magnetic observations. He then proposed equations that described light waves and radio waves as waves of electromagnetism that travel in space, radiated by a charged particle as it undergoes acceleration. In 1887, Heinrich Hertz demonstrated the reality of Maxwell's electromagnetic waves by experimentally generating radio waves in his laboratory. Many inventions followed, making use of these 'Hertzian' waves to transfer information through space.

      So yeah, the radar's fall within the timeline. There was some modern tech in the first few arcs, but Yana has since gotten rid of them for more historic accuracy.

      Radar (historically) was not introduced until 1935 - see wiki info - this is a little early for the time line ... sorry - I am a historian and this is not historically accurate if the year is 1889 (The history of radar starts with experiments by Heinrich Hertz in the late 19th century that showed that radio waves were reflected by metallic objects. This possibility was suggested in James Clerk Maxwell's seminal work on electromagnetism. However, it was not until the early 20th century that systems were able to use these principles were becoming widely available, and it was German inventor Christian Hülsmeyer who first used them to build a simple ship detection device intended to help avoid collisions in fog (Reichspatent Nr. 165546). Numerous similar systems, which provided directional information to objects over short ranges, were developed over the next two decades.

      The development of systems able to produce short pulses of radio energy was the key advance that allowed modern radar systems to come into existence. By timing the pulses on an oscilloscope, the range could be determined and the direction of the antenna revealed the angular location of the targets. The two, combined, produced a "fix", locating the target relative to the antenna. In the 1934–1939 period, eight nations developed independently, and in great secrecy, systems of this type: Great Britain, Germany, the United States, the USSR, Japan, the Netherlands, France, and Italy. In addition, Great Britain shared their information with the United States and four Commonwealth countries: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa, and these countries also developed indigenous radar systems. During the war, Hungary was added to this list.[1] The term RADAR was coined in 1939 by the United States Signal Corps as it worked on these systems for the Navy)

      Your knowledge of this really astonishes me! I've always held historians in great respect, and always admired them! I wanted to be one, but the information is just so much :(

      Thanks, but this info was actually taken directly from wikipedia (I did double check my history books - I have a Bachelors Degree in History) but I was too lazy to type all that info myself *snicker* (besides my specialization is actually medieval history)

      Actually, you are wrong Hanne.

      Radio waves were first predicted by mathematical work done in 1867 by Scottish mathematical physicist James Clerk Maxwell.[1] Maxwell noticed wavelike properties of light and similarities in electrical and magnetic observations. He then proposed equations that described light waves and radio waves as waves of electromagnetism that travel in space, radiated by a charged particle as it undergoes acceleration. In 1887, Heinrich Hertz demonstrated the reality of Maxwell's electromagnetic waves by experimentally generating radio waves in his laboratory.[2] Many inventions followed, making use of these 'Hertzian' waves to transfer information through space.

      Radar technology may not have been released until 1935, but that doesn't mean the technology wasn't been developed. People studied it in secret, as you can see along with the Mustard Gas being developed. So you are wrong about it.

      You should probably have done your research a little more. We're talking about radio waves. The necklaces they wore had something in them that sent out radio waves so they could be tracked.

      Oh well enough with this discussion, there are many manga where the story-line are from the late 1800 or 1900 but somehow their technology and fashion are as advanced as ours. We should be thankful that this manga was an exception... this manga is from the last 1800's

      Radar is not common in 1889, it it very very new and unproven technology. Wiki: As early as 1886, German physicist Heinrich Hertz showed that radio waves could be reflected from solid objects. In 1895, Alexander Popov, a physics instructor at the Imperial Russian Navy school in Kronstadt, developed an apparatus using a coherer tube for detecting distant lightning strikes. The next year, he added a spark-gap transmitter. In 1897, while testing this equipment for communicating between two ships in the Baltic Sea, he took note of an interference beat caused by the passage of a third vessel. In his report, Popov wrote that this phenomenon might be used for detecting objects, but he did nothing more with this observation
      Your information seems to be somewhat incomplete ...

      That is definitely true. artists do take a lot of liberties if it suits their purposes. Plus there are a lot of them that play with history, so we should not take this stuff so seriously ... this is fantasy after all. *wink*

    • This is the OP October 1, 2014 2:41 am

      Yeah i noticed there were a few situations that seemed out of place for the timeline. I just wanted to know because of what sebastian had said. It would interesting if these random bursts of futuristic technology technology played into a bigger story where Ciel got a glimpse into the future or something and not just the mangaka being innaccurate.

      Well then Hanne, I guess we'll both just have to say we're right on this one, given we both got our info off Wiki. (Wiki can't be trusted sometimes.) And given that authors love to take a bit of liberty with history. At least we can appreciate Yana trying to stay within the timeline.

      Well, she did say she double checked her history books and has a bachlor degree in history, so I don't see how she's only getting her information through wikipedia (she said she was too lazy to type)... And I'm not sure how both of you may be right, as one is saying it's in timeline but the other one says it doesn't, which are pretty much opposites. It can't really be both ways, but really it's no big deal.

      Hmmm... all the arguments over wiki information, so I went to the History Learning Site.uk and found this information:

      Robert Watson-Watt is given the credit for inventing the radar. The first experimentations into what we would define as radar came in 1888 when Heinrich Hertz discovered that radio waves could be bounced off objects. In 1904, Christian Hulsmeyer patented an early warning system for shipping. Therefore, Watson- Watt did have prior research to inspire him.

      In 1935, Watson-Watt was asked to the Air Ministry to investigate the possibility of creating a 'death-ray' weapon using radio waves. At the time, Watson-Watt was working for the National Physical Laboratory in Slough. He did not invent a 'death-ray' weapon but he did find that his radio transmitters could create an echo from an plane that was over 200 miles away. Such a distance would give the RAF an early warning of an attack. As his work was done during the build-up to World War Two, such an invention was invaluable to the RAF that believed it was significantly weaker than the Luftwaffe. During the Battle of Britain, the Germans lost the element of surprise.

      Thus this really is not saying true to a time line, but really, it does not matter if the time line is really or not, as this is a work of pure fantasy with some historical information tossed in as fodder.

      It is still a great manga

      I'm betting the Hanne is actually right. She's got a bachelors in history, so she's not just checking wiki. Even by looking at it, this is a little too advanced. But it is fantasy.

      The mangaka does not stay within time lines ... even in the first chapter, she introduces Superman (a Canadian superhero that is not created until the mid 1930s) and there are a number of cars in this manga too - cars were very few and far between and the first ones on the road were made by Daimler Chrysler in 1892. So, please, pay better attention yourself. This is fantasy and the mangaka is not sticking to any actual time lines in a number of places.

      She pretty much got rid of that after the earlier chapters. Even in the anime they altered some of them, the cellphone being bulkier and such. Now most if not all of the modern technology seen in the manga is owned only by the shinigamis.
      Earlier chapters really didn't intend to be historically correct, I mean what is the italian mafia in pretty modern clothes at that doing in Victorian England? xD

    • Katty October 2, 2014 7:38 pm

      Zenalear is correct, Yana noticed those mistakes after the Curry arc and I guess she said, alright I'm going o fix this now. So she's been trying to keep her facts straight, while trying to make the story strong (reason for some inconsistencies.). As for the Shinigami, it's always been my thought that since Death isn't, necessarily, bound by time they could get futuristic weapons.. Either that or their weapons inspired our gardening tools. (Did you guys notice that all their weapons relates to gardening, or was that just me.)

      As whose right, no one is wrong, apart from the info you got, Nightfall. They didn't even credit James Clerk Maxwell, who truly discovered the waves. As for technology, it was pointed out to me that after Hertz proved Maxwell's radio waves, many developed inventions based around this discovering in secret, until somebody revealed their invention later on.

      But as many said, it doesn't matter. It's still a good manga. And liberties with history happen. A perfect example would be the new Dracula movie that's coming out this month.
