Black Butler (2014)
Black Butler is a 2014 live-action Japanese movie directed by Kentaro Otani and animation character designer Keiichi Sato. It’s based on a popular manga by Yana Toboso, but will feature an all-new story set 130 years later. Toboso personally signed off on the script before the film went into production.
130 years after Ciel Phantomhive entered into a pact with flawless demon butler Sebastian Michaelis, a female descendent of the Phantomhive family named Shiori Genpo poses as a boy named “Kiyoharu” in order to act as heir.
The world is now divided between east and west, with Shiori working as an agent of the Western Queen. Shiori receives a mission to investigate a series of missing females and mysterious deaths in which the victims were mummified, but after receiving a curious “black invitation”, she winds up in over her head and in desperate need of Sebastian’s assistance.
