Whispers turn into screaming headlines in Earl Ciel Phantomhive's morning paper as word of the dead being resurrected takes society by storm.

In this volume I'm reminded how much of a dick Ciel and Sebastian anyone in general.

Seriously, I want to slap that boy across the face. With my High-School-Graduation-Ring-hand!


And poor Snake. I STILL have not forgotten what Ciel did to Joker and his circus troupe!



But yay, he's so cute anyway...says Goethe.

I hope he's a permanent new staple in the Phantomhive manor --says Wilde.

Okay I'll stop with the weird referral-to-snakes-as-if-they're-actually-thinking...says Emily.

This is the 11th volume in the Black Butler series. I have been really enjoying this manga series overall. I thought volume 10 was weaker than the rest of the series. This volume is better again; although not as spectacular as some of the volumes before 10.

In this volume the events of the last two volumes are explained in detail with all revealed. Then Ciel and Sebastian end up on a cruise ship with Ciel’s intended. Most of the people think that Ciel is taking a well deserved break but little d
Sebastian certainly is weird and vain! His story about the black cat was so funny! He is so crazy about cats... and that he had to show up in his most humiliating appearance when he was 'dead'! hahaha, and he certainly moved a lot during the case; Ciel makes him work so hard. But that scene of Ciel crying over Sebastian's dead body... arghhhh it was just acting :(

It was a surprise that Arthur C. Doyle was told the truth; but again, it was a nice twist, showing him then in the future, as the grea

You are getting more and more ridiculous with each volume. Le sigh. Should I just abandon you and find a new manga that will help me boost my Goodreads Reading Challenge or should I stay committed to you? I'll probably keep reading you but it's time to get unfaithful and look for some new and more interesting manga that I can read besides you. Yeah, you heard that right.

You know, sometimes you're pretty fun and entertaining, so please get back to your volume 3-5 roots. Back then I still liked y

Well that explained a lot. And now it's off to start solving a new mystery which is already getting pretty crazy.

Reread: That was very complex. Wow. And now it's off to the beginning of one of my favorite storylines in this series.

#11 Black Butler series - Manga

First reading: 1/20/15 - 4 stars

Happily the plot moves along, with the ending of the locked room murder mystery, though not until close to the end of the book.

We see a surprise return by Snake, a colorful character from the circus, who joins the Phantomhive staff as a footman. And he brings his literary-named "friends" ha ha!

Ciel assigns Sebastian to investigate disturbing rumors of a local hospital bringing the dead back to life. At the same time, Ciel's fiancé, t

If volume 10 was the conclusion to the locked murder mystery arc, then volume 11 pulled back the curtain to show how certain people pulled it all off. Toboso does a good job at incorporating flashbacks into the narrative, and she uses an interesting technique to transition between current and past scenes. Also, Sebastian was wickedly hilarious in this volume. His love for stray cats cannot be stopped! The new story arc involving raising the dead should be interesting and very bloody. Anything in ...more

This could be described as the "parlor scene" in most detective stories. The moment where the detective, or in this case Sebastian, reveals how he discovered the killer and his motives. I did feel a bit bad for the professor who was unduly freaked out by this whole turn of events. This is kind of a "wrapping up" book, completing one arc and setting up the next. That being said, the next story line seems interesting. It looks like we're moving from "And then there were none" to "Titanic".
Nerdish Mum
The start of this wrapped up the loose ends from the last arc with the author ensuring he would keep a certain secret and ensuring he would be inspired to carry on writing. We then moved onto the next arc which looks set to be another interesting instalment. I'm looking forward to finding out how the group are bringing people back to "life" and how Ciel and Sebastian keep the whole thing away from Elizabeth. Oh and one last thing "We are......PHEONIX!!!!" awesome!
Loved the house of murder arc, but this new arc truly seems promising. I have to get reading, also because I want to see the movie.

What I liked about this volume is that it stuck true to the anime, but it didn't.

It featured the completion of the Book of Murder storyline with Sebastian and Ciel explaining the events of the storyline to the writer, and it also featured the introduction of snake as part of the team from the Book of Circus storyline. What the anime left out however, was the brief transition for Snake into the Phantomhive family. While, it wasn't overly important for the storyline to show the transition in the

One of the most thrilling of the series, Black Butler 11 by Yana Toboso wraps up the case of the strange murders in the Phantomhive residence. Clearing Ciel’s name, Jeremy Rathbone solves the case and puts the killer in jail. Things are looking like they are going to go back to normal, until they decide to get on a boat. The ending of this book showed extreme promise for the next one, leaving me excited to purchase book 12. I was sad to see the throat gripping mystery end, in all honesty. It was ...more

The mystery of the last few volumes ties up its final plot threads, revealing more of the dark deviousness of the devil of a butler and his ruthless little master. Plus, a character from a previous story reappears to take on a recurring role in Ciel Phantomhive's staff, adding to already colorful collection of a bizarre characters. Keeping to its balance of dark beauty, punctuated by shocking moments of psychological horror, lightened by moments of almost slapstick comedy, the eleventh book live ...more

The ending to the Fantomhive Manor Murder Case arc is superb, with an amazing fictional tie to the real Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The beginning of the Luxury Liner arc is rather interesting but were it not for the ending of the previous arc, I would have given this volume 3 stars.

Like I said before, I didn't love the Book of Murder arc (title taken from the anime for clarity), and since this issue wraps up that arc I wasn't a huge fan of XI. I am, however, looking forward to reading about Ciel & Sebastian's misadventures aboard the luxury liner heading to New York. :)
