3DMock_BlackButler_BOC_LE

We’ve got some big announcements today for Black Butler fans out there— new installments of the series are coming to home video, and we have your English dub cast announcement AND season 3 trailer!

 

Black Butler: Book of Circus is the newest season, completely based on the Noah’s Ark Circus arc from the original manga by Yana Toboso. See Ciel and Sebastian infiltrate a traveling circus and meet its glamorous performers—who all hold a dark secret. This is definitely one of the most shocking, emotional, and frankly beautiful installments yet in the Black Butler series.

 

The complete third season is being released on April 19. The Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack features a handsome chipboard box, as well as a premium disc packaging in the form of a long fold-out digipak that displays tons of detailed artwork from the covers of the original Japanese releases—definitely the release of choice for ultra-fans of Black Butler and its gorgeous art style.

 A standard edition in a normal single disc case is also available, here!

 

We’ll also be releasing Black Butler: Book of Murder, a two-part OVA series about 2 hours long— think of these as two short movies. A murder mystery occurs at Phantomhive Manor, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (yes, the author of the Sherlock Holmes series) shows up as a character. Pre-orders for Book of Murder will begin next week, and the OVA set will be released on Blu-ray/DVD Combo on May 17.

Kick-Ass Anime Openings and Endings from Summer 2014

As many fans know, music is an important part of anime. An epic soundtrack can elevate the viewing experience when watching a series; and conversely, you may forgive a few weak plot points if the music is spot on. Each season brings new shows and that means new openings and endings! Take a look at some of the ones from this season below:

 

 

Tokyo Ghoul - Opening Song
Song: Unravel
Performed by: TK from Ling Toshite Sigure

 

Reasons you’ll love it: TK is the vocalist and guitarist for the J-Rock band Ling Tosite Sigure. You may remember them from the opening theme for Psycho-Pass. The haunting vocals and progressive rock sound perfectly capture the intense feel of this show.

Tokyo Ghoul streams Thursdays at 12pm ET. Click here to watch episodes now.
