As high society's social calendar opens up and the Season draws to a close, London is gripped by fear. Someone has taken to stalking women of the night and painting the town their blood. The name on everyone's lips seems to be "Jack the Ripper" - and as a result, the name on Queen Victoria's lips is Phantomhive. Summoned to London to clean up the mess created by this madman, Ciel Phantomhive arrives with Sebastian, his extraordinary butler, at his side to pour him tea, polish his silver, and...investigate a serial killer. And with the aid (and occasional interference) of a few of the Phantomhive house's numerous acquaintances, little stands in the way of the young earl getting to the bottom of this mystery. However, one question remains...can he handle the shattering truth behind it?

I thought Black Butler #2 was a lot more interesting than the first volume in this series. I really liked book #1 because it outlined the main story and history of Ciel Phantomhive and his faithful butler, Sebastian. However, I did not feel that there was a very strong storyline outside of the explanation of the character setup. In Black Butler 2 I felt that there was a very intricately woven plot that was greatly developed throughout the story, and a very interesting twist at the end. To incorporate historical events into this book was a very intriguing and smart move to make the story very enjoyable. It was also pretty cool that we learned a lot more about Ciel Phantomhive's relationship with Sebastian, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions that have left me eagerly waiting for the next installment in the series. The artwork is very fun to look at as well.

This manga is so beautiful and well written and for now at least it's fairly close to the anime so even tho I kinda know what's going to happen it still feels so new and exciting! I love it!

This volume is great! It's filled with funny stories and a suspenseful plot twist. The charaters themselves are amazing, and I enjoy this volume greatly. Black Butler is an amazing manga, and I strongly recommend it!

This manga is about a young earl who promised his soul to a demon in exchange for help finding the identity of the people who killed his parents and getting revenge against them. In the meantime, the demon masquerades as his butler, and together, they undertake missions from Queen Victoria to solve certain crimes. The setting is in Victorian England, and the artwork is beautiful. I often find myself wanting Ciel's clothes. The storylines are at times funny and at times dark and serious. This particular volume includes the 1st half of the Jack the Ripper arc.I especially enjoyed reading the author's behind-the-scenes stories at the very end of the manga, which you don't get if you only read the manga in serialized form. Some of the themes in the manga are dark, so it's more suitable for older children and adults.

So starts the Jack the Ripper arc! Ciel is charged with solving the brutal murders committed by the first famous serial killer. Toboso allows for moments of lightheartedness and the development of several new characters. The complete Ripper arc is probably one of my favorite for this series, and the ending is epic. The only really regrettable thing is that waiting for Volume three to come out might be torturous, since that is where the arc is concluded.

Ciel and co. investigate a string of murders by a killer called Jack the Ripper. They may have found a lead. Suspenseful with some serious moments and also funny ones. Perfect for a series like this. Definitely reading volume 3 after a cliffhanger like that.
