Following up on the reveal in July, a start month is in place for the new Black Butler anime. Black Butler: Public School Arc officially kicks off on TV in Japan in April 2024, with Crunchyroll set to stream, and you can see a new visual in celebration of Ciel Phantomhive’s December 14 birthday below.

Black Butler: Public School Arc features Kenjiro Okada as director, with Hiroyuki Yoshino on series composition and Yumi Shimizu handling character designs for the CloverWorks production. 

Following the first seasons in 2008 and 2010, the last TV anime for the Black Butler series was 2014’s Black Butler: Book of Circus, with the Black Butler: Book of Murder OVA landing in the same year. 2017 then saw the series head to the big screen with the Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic anime film in 2017. 

The Black Butler manga is available in English through Yen Press, which sums up the story:

Just a stone’s throw from London lies the manor house of the illustrious Phantomhive earldom, its master one Ciel Phantomhive. Earl Phantomhive is a giant in the world of commerce, Queen Victoria’s faithful servant . . . and a slip of a twelve-year old boy. Fortunately, his loyal butler, Sebastian, is ever at his side, ready to carry out the young master’s wishes. And whether Sebastian is called to save a dinner party gone awry or probe the dark secrets of London’s underbelly, there is practically nothing Sebastian cannot do. In fact, one might even say Sebastian is too good to be true . . . or at least, he is too good to be human . . .
