    AMAZING.

    I absolutely adore the Victorian era, butlers, and hot anime guys. This series has all of that. I watched the anime first, and I was sure that the manga couldn't live up to it, but boy was I surprised!The manga is every bit as good as the anime if not better. READ IT.

    Loved the Anime but I love the Manga even more!!!!!!!!!!!!! Black Butler is so beautifully drawn (consistently through out the manga) and so well written it's so easy to fall in love with this manga and it's so easy to breeze through reading it in only a day! There is some differences from this volume to the anime but not a whole lot, however I have heard that as you continue to read the manga it is totally different then the anime where most anime follow the manga to the letter. Either way it is truly exceptional and I think everyone new to manga or a seasoned veteran should pick it up to read!

    LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I heard of Black Butler, so I was like "Hey, why not try it out?!" I did, and OMGOSH! I fell in love with the books, anime, characters, and everything else about this! It's dark (the way I like it), and has an original plot with amazing characters. The first volume may be a little boring, but push past it. You'll be glad you did! I can't wait until the volume 15 comes out!

    FANTASTIC. Dark, the way I like it, with compelling characters (especially Sebastian). Good for anyone trying out manga for the first time, as it's pretty easy to follow.

    Very good read

    Everyday adventures of Ciel, head of the Phantomhive family and his butler, Sebastian and the other servants in the household. This was an interesting and very good read. The drawings is detailed and well done. Plus the food looks pretty good. Looking forward to reading the next volume.

    A MUST READ!

    All my friends like this series, so I thought I'd try it out and boy was I amazed! I found myself falling way in love with the series (and the characters). I cannot wait for the rest of the series to come out in English as well as season 2 of the anime.

    BLACK BUTLER!!

    Okay, so at the beginning you are probably thinking, "How can they make a manga out of this?!" Well they can, and the plot gets awesomer as it goes on. So just suck it up and read it! Or I will personally track you down and kill you!

    Stunning!

    I'm very picky about what mangas I read and what animes I watch. Black Butler is dark, exciting, has an excellent plot, and rather complex characters. I prefer the manga, but the anime is fantastic as well. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a good read.
