The Storyline

This dark fantasy explores the life of a 13-year-old boy Ciel Phantomhive who barters his soul to Sebastian Michaelis (a demon in the visage of his butler) as payment for helping him avenge his family’s murder. Thereafter, Ciel inherits his father’s former position of the Queen’s watchdog and engages in investigating all the cases that are a threat to England. A direct reference to the Faustian symbol is also made, thereby further proving the influence of the literary classic “Doctor Faustus”.
