Mummified dead bodies of various dignitaries from around the world are being discovered, a mysterious tarot card left beside them at the scene. The world is headed towards chaos. Kiyoharu is the young head of the Genpo noble family, owners of a massive toy manufacturing enterprise. He also functions as a secret watchdog for the Queen, a service that his family has provided for generations. The Queen orders Kiyoharu to solve the mummification incidents. He is assisted by his perfect butler, Sebastian, who is actually a demon. Kiyoharu has been hiding his true female identity since his parents’ tragic death 10 years earlier. In return for service to his master in public and private, Sebastian will receive his master’s soul after Kiyoharu achieves revenge for the murder of his parents. Who is really behind the serial mummification deaths? Will Kiyoharu finally find out who killed his parents? Black Butler, the cult manga of Yana Toboso, is a true phenomenon. The comic not only sold millions of copies, but was also adapted into a anime TV-series (of which you could see several episodes at the BIFFF), a musical comedy and a video game. The missing link, a live adaptation for the big screen, has now been delivered in spectacular fashion by directors Kentaro Ohtani and Kei’ichi Sato. They’ve made the story jump some 130 years, but don’t worry, Sebastian Michaelis remains as demonically fiendish in the future as in the past.
