Yana Toboso’s manga Black Butler follows a young earl named Ciel Phantomhive who lives in a manor house right outside of London and is known for being a giant of commerce. There’s only one problem: Earl Phantomhive is a 12–year-old boy who just lazes around his house while others in the corporation slave away to produce both candy and toys. Although Phantomhive has a team of devoted staff members, none can touch his butler, a mysterious man named Sebastian, who is always ready, willing, and able to carry out his master’s wishes. Whether he needs to probe London’s seedy and dark underbelly or save his master from a dinner party gone awry, Sebastian is good at his job—almost too good to be human.
