Ciel Phantomhive is a twelve year old Count, who took on the family business at a young age after his parents died.But the life of a Count is not easy, something he is quite prepared for.
His staff is made up of a old caretaker that does nothing but drink tea, a chief with no ability to make dinner, a gartner that destroys instead of taking care of the garden and a maid that pour the drink at the table instead the cups.
But at the top of his staff, is Sebastian, a handsome butler with many skills. This mysterious man does anything his lord orders, after all, he is one hell of a butler.
The first episode starts off with what looks like a normal day at the household, the butler Sebastian does his best with making the day easy for his young Lord, while the others mess up.
And on top of all the chaos, the guest that they greet with a perfect welcome has plans of his own, planning to ask for money for his factory, that he has already sold, and then run off with the money.
But in the Phantomhive household, there is darker secret that the Count and his butler shares, as Sebastian set out to take revenge on anyone who angers his Lord, prepared to take any means necessary.
After all, he is a demon of a butler.
At first I thought this would be one of those serious series whit no laughs at all, but after the intro credits was over, I started understanding that there was some elements of humor present. This anime is based on the manga with the same name, but the anime also added a few fillers to fill out the episode, something that wasn’t really a problem as the first chapter of the manga really didn’t have a conclusion.
I have seen six episodes until now, and I think it is a good anime. Let us hope that it gets better ^.^
