My Review:
I had heard about this series for a long time but never really took an interest in it until of late. So when I was at the library a couple weeks ago and saw all of the manga on the shelves I decided to give it a try. I would have preferred to watch the anime first but that happening. I really like this manga. I love each character – the main characters are so charming, especially Sebastian and Ciel! I love all the humor throughout – I laughed a lot. And I was completely surprised at every turn. Where the rest of this series goes who knows, but I’m looking forward to seeing where it takes me.
