黒執事 [Kuroshitsuji] XX (Black Butler, #20)黒執事 [Kuroshitsuji] XX by Yana Toboso

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As usual I had mixed feelings about this one. Finny has grown a lot on this arc, maybe more than anyone. Oscar, too, worked well. Ciel's sudden break down, his inner battle and recovery was a bit muddy and something of a let down. I will say Sebastian letting his inner demon out to play was gorgeously rendered.

The witch arc had some unexpected twists. I liked those. That was worth it.

I'm still not sure what the queen's horseman is all about. He does things that suggest a great deal of magic is involved.

I'll assume the witch arc will wrap up next time. Maybe not happily ever after either for her.
