Black Butler (黒執事, Kuroshitsuji?) is a manga written and illustrated by Yana Toboso. Black Butler was also made into an anime.

The series follows Sebastian Michaelis, a demonic butler who is bound by a supernatural contract to serve Ciel Phantomhive, the twelve-year-old head of the Phantomhive noble family and the business-savvy owner of the Funtom company, a toy manufacturer. In return, when Ciel has finished all of his tasks, including avenging his parents' deaths, Sebastian will be allowed to kill him and consume his soul.[1]

Kuroshitsuji was considered ineligible for Yuletide in 2011.[2]


The Two Ciels Theory became popular in western fandom, though it had already been widely known for some time in the Japanese fandom. The theory eventually proved to be true in 2017.
