Kuroshitsuji manga surpasses 30 million copies in circulation
Following the announcement of the start of preparations for the commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the serialization of the manga written and illustrated by Yana Toboso, Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler), it was also confirmed that the work has exceeded 30 million cumulative copies in circulation.
On the other hand, Toboso began publication of the manga in Square Enix publisher's Monthly G Fantasy magazine in September 2006. The publisher published the 29th compiled volume in December 2019, and the 30th on October 27 in Japan.
The play inspired a 25-episode anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures Studios, directed by Toshiya Shinohara and scripts written by Mari Okada, released in October 2008. More seasons, OVAs, and animated feature films were subsequently produced.
The young Ciel Phantomhive is known as the "queen's watchdog" as he takes care of the many disturbing events that occur during Victorian England for Her Majesty. With the help of Sebastian Michaelis, his loyal butler with seemingly inhuman abilities, Ciel uses whatever means necessary to get the job done. But is there more to this black-clad butler than meets the eye? In Ciel's past lies a tragedy that enveloped him in perennial darkness: During one of his darkest moments, he formed a contract with Sebastian, a demon, negotiating his soul in exchange for revenge on those who threatened him. Now, Sebastian is not only a great butler, but he is also the perfect servant to carry out the orders of his master, as he waits patiently for the delicious food that he will eventually prepare with Ciel's soul.
