Funimation brought out the Black Butler: Book of Circus season just over a week ago and they’re continuing on with their dub clips about it. A lot of folks may get their releases the day it comes out, but releasing clips after the release catches that sizable wave of folks who are out of the loop and can be surprised that it’s out. This one is a pretty fun one as we get to see some of Ciel’s tryouts and you just have to wonder who would let him play with knives… The DVD/BD combo set is priced at $84.98 (LE) $64.98 (RE) and on-disc extras include new English-language commentaries.
Plot concept: Ciel and the demon butler Sebastian are summoned by the Queen to investigate multiple reports of missing children. When their underworld contacts reveal the disappearances increase when the mysterious Noah’s Ark Circus comes to town the demonic duo must impress an enigmatic ringmaster in order to go undercover as performers – to Sebastian’s delight and Ciel’s disgust. At the core of the circus is a troupe of unique performers from Dagger the knife thrower to Beast, the beautiful tiger tamer. All are connected by someone who changed their lives, someone who raised them from the gutters of London to the heights of the big top—but at a price.
