Stand Alone or Series: 24th volume in the Black Butler series
Rating: 5/5 stars
“A mysterious cult mesmerises legions of followers with glorious rituals of song and dance. But the unbridled passion it inspires gives Queen Victoria cause for concern, and she urges Earl Ciel Phantomhive and his expert butler, Sebastian, to do some digging. Ciel has his own reasons for taking this lot to task, but the discovery of the cult’s penchant for blood means the Queen’s Watchdog must take swift action. When Sebastian goes probing behind the stage and into the shadows, however, he is met by a girl standing in his way, glinting sword at the ready…”
This is the 24th volume in the Black Butler series. This was a wonderful installment of the Black Butler series. I love this series soooo much!!!
This volume continues the story started in Vol 23. Ciel is trying to solve the mystery behind this strange cult. He decides they have two missions: first infiltrate the cult and figure out what is going on, second create competition for the cult.
This was such a fun volume. I am so sad that I am caught up on this series but very excited that Vol 25 is supposed to release in January (only a month or so away).
The artwork in this series continues to be stunning. I love the characters and the story as well. This is one of my favorite manga series of all time and it is definitely the most fun out of the manga series I am reading.
Overall an amazing volume in this series…now I am desperate to see what happens in Vol 25!! There really just is no other manga series out there that compares to the illustration quality, uniqueness, and pure entertainment of the Black Butler series. I love it!
