黒執事 XXII [Kuroshitsuji XXII] (Black Butler, #22)黒執事 XXII [Kuroshitsuji XXII] by Yana Toboso

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Great Mey-Rin cover. The art is as always just lovely through out and the Emerald Witch arc finally wraps up. Ciel and company successfully get her out of Germany along with Wolfman who lives long enough to get to medical help to save him.

Once in England, Ciel and Sebastian have to train her to properly meet Queen Victoria and convince her that she's no longer a threat. Ciel bribes her with the ideas of being able to study and do as much science as she wants. I liked that.

However this is a short volume in many ways. The new arc doesn't begin. Instead the fan voting for most popular characters was made into a rather long 'short story' within the volume. It's quite silly and fun but at the end of the day didn't do much for me.

Looking forward to the next arc.
