One Hell of an Announcement

UPDATE: Sheesh, people. Ian Sinclair had our full permission to reveal the Black Butler 2 Cast List and OVA announcement at Matsuricon. So, please stop sending him threatening e-mails and hiring ninjas to attack him…

You’ve seen the first season of Aniplex’s “Black Butler” and you’ve probably already suspected that we’ll be bringing you the second season in 2012 (well, more liked begged us on Facebook and on the website)– but the Season 2 secret we’ve been saving was shared by ADR director Ian Sinclair at Matsuricon this past weekend. Since the cat’s out of the bag, let’s just make it official:

Playing the roles of a new butler, Claude Faustus, is Jason Douglas; a new charge, Alois Trancy, is Luci Christian; and maid, Hanna Annafellows, is Caitlin Glass.

We also have the rights to the 5 OVAs of this supernatural series.

  • OVA 01 (Wonderland Part 01 and 02)
  • OVA 02 (Welcome to the Phantomhives)
  • OVA 03 (Making Of )
  • OVA 04 (The Intention of Spider)
  • OVA 05 (The Story of Will the Reaper)

Look for these demons on DVD in 2012.

Synopsis of Series:


Ciel Phantomhive was born into a life of luxury, only to have his beloved parents brutally murdered before his eyes. Wrought with grief and tortured by the very fiends who killed his mother and father, Ciel summoned the services of an exquisite butler born of the fires of hell. Together, they’ll turn merry old England on its ear while hunting the mysterious villains who made Ciel an orphan.


Fans of the deranged escapades of Sebastian and Ciel will be perversely delighted by a new season of demonic adventures. Claude exists only to serve his young master, Alois: a boy who no doubt carries a dark secret.
