"Black Butler" is, I dunno, not emphatically engrossing--not even in the I'm-somewhat-reluctant-and-also-kind-of-ashamed-to-admit-how-engrossing-it-is way that "Vampire Knight" is. It's more of a "come for the supernatural mysteries, stay for the HAWT DEMON BUTLER" kind of book. Or maybe it's the other way around.

Still, "entertaining" is a good word for it, and the relationship between Sabastian and Ciel is the real main event. Sabastian seems to care about Ciel, and Ciel seems to depend on him for stability as well as assistance. BUT. It's equally likely that Sabastian is just fulfilling the role he swore to fill for Ciel for his own benefit. It makes Sabastian hard to get. But he's still super Hawt. And that's what counts.
