How to Watch Black Butler in Order (With Movies)

By Samona Punjabi / April 23, 2022

Black Butler is a supernatural but humourous Shonen anime set in Victorian-era England! Unlike most supernatural comedy anime, the series smoothly transitions between light and dark themes. The story follows Ciel Phantomhive, also known as "The Queen’s Guard Dog." His job entails taking care of matters that the Queen doesn't know of.

This fairly unique series is a story that has everything: mystery, demons, comedy, and action. The twist in the concept is Ciel's partner, Sebastian, a demon disguised as a butler! According to the story, Sebastian signed a contract with Ciel for his vengeance against those who did injustice to him.

This series is perfect if you enjoy a mix of horror, supernatural, and comedy! Moreover, the rest of the characters in the series are extremely lovable. The demon Sebastian is the most elegant butler in all of England, and Ciel Phantomhive is the coolest 12-year-old ever. Fans looking to watch the series can check it out on Funimation, Hulu, Netflix, and Crunchyroll.

Fans who want only to watch the anime and not read the manga should go by the release order of Black Butler. However, fans who wish to read the manga without any confusion must follow the canon order. The special episodes and fillers can be skipped since they are simply comic relief and do not contribute to the plot.

Check out the full list of Black Butler episodes, movies, OVAs, specials, and the release and canonical order to watch them below:
