Rating: 5/5 stars
“With the helpful hand of his distinguished butler, Sebastian, Earl Ciel Phantomhive, once again with his wits about him, discovers the reality of both the Emerald Witch and the curse of the Wolfman that haunts a small village in the forests of Germany. On the orders of Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, master and servant escort the young sheltered Emerald Witch, Lady Sullivan, beyond the doors of the Emerald Castle and into the outside world…only to find themselves right in the path of an oncoming German special forces attack?! “
This is the 21st volume in the Black Butler series. I really loved it and thought this was one of the best volumes in this series yet. You get to see a very dark side to Sebastian (he destroys a Panzer by hand which was absolutely awesome). You also get to see a ton of awesomeness from the Phantomhive staff, especially Finnian.
I continued to really enjoy the Emerald Witchand hope she continues to be in the series. I also enjoyed all the female military staff in this story and how they kicked butt as well.
This was one of the most violent and action-packed Black Butler’s in quite some time and I absolutely loved it. I hope future volumes are just as action-packed and edgy.
The illustration remains top notch and I really enjoyed that as well.
Overall one of the best volumes in the Black Butler series; I loved all the action and mayhem in this one. I really look forward to seeing what future volumes bring. I would recommend this manga to those who enjoy paranormal mystery type stories.
