When last we saw dear Sebastian, he was poised to feast on the ripened soul of his young master. Unfortunately for the debonair demon, there’s a new butler in town…


Enter Claude Faustus, a malevolent manservant uninspired by the drab flavor of his own contracted master, Alois Trancy. This pedestrian lad holds no allure for Claude, so the bespectacled butler sets his sights on a finer delicacy from the menu of the damned. None other than Ciel Phantomhive. And so begins a devilish dance of death starring crow and spider. The demonic duel rages beyond the limits of good taste, culminating in a debaucherous maze of madness pitting butler against butler. Sebastian and Claude: two ravenous rakehells filled with the power of darkness and locked in a macabre battle for the soiled soul of the young master they so long to devour.

Cat Cafe Opens in New York City for a Limited Time

Image by Tod Seelie/Gothamist


New York is the latest city to embrace the cat cafe, following Vienna, San Francisco, London, Seoul, and Singapore. Just doesn’t seem fair that we don’t have one in Dallas yet, but I guess we’ll just have to be patient. In the meantime, denizens of the Big Apple can enjoy this purr-fect treat for a limited time–it’s only around for four days!


The Purina One pop-up Cat Cafe can be found at 168 Bowery, and features cat’achinos, pastries, and adorable kitties that you can adopt on the spot from the North Shore Animal League. The best part is that the food and drinks are free! Ok, well maybe the best part is the cats, but free food and drink is a very, very close second. They’ll even put kitty latte/foam art on your drinks!


We know a few anime characters who would go crazy for a cat cafe. Like Al from Fullmetal Alchemist and Sebastian from Black Butler. How would you like a cat cafe where Sebastian served you drinks?
