Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus (黒執事・サーカスの書, Kuroshitsuji: Sākasu no Sho) is a Kuroshitsuji (黒執事, Black Butler) television series and the third season of the Kuroshitsuji anime, that premiered in the Animeism block[1] on July 11, 2014, with a new episode released every Friday (Japanese Central Time).[2] It adapts the fourth Kuroshitsuji manga arc Circus, returning to the manga storyline at the point which the first season of the anime has previously diverged from (i.e. at the end of the Indian Butler Arc: Episode 15). The season ended on September 5, 2014, comprising a total of 10 episodes.[3]


On January 16, 2014, the cover of the February issue of Square Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine announced that production on a new anime series, Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus, has been green-lit.[4] It premiered on July 11, 2014.[2]


In late-nineteenth-century England, the Noah's Ark Circus enlivens the city of London with their grandeur and spectacular stunts. However, children are mysteriously disappearing from the town in a manner correlating to the troupe's movement. The Queen, then, sends her notorious Watchdog, Ciel Phantomhive, on an investigative mission to retrieve the missing children. Ciel and his demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, infiltrate the circus, disguised as team members, to study and possibly unearth its ulterior motive.
