Unboxing: Black Butler – Season 2 (Limited Edition Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) [USA]

FUNimation Entertainment’s release of Black Butler – Season 2, also known as Black Butler II, is a piece of artistic bliss,and thats not just becaused of the carded box that it comes in.

Black Butler – Season 2 features 12 Episodes and 6 OVA Episodes, these come in 3 DVD Discs and 2 Blu-ray Discs and just like the previous Black Butler set are all included in a Blu-ray Sized case. The Blu-ray case is contained within this hard, strong and durable carded box which has enough room to fit Season 1 of Black Butler as well – making this the ideal purchase for anyone wanting to pick-up the entire Black Butler collection.

The carded box, which will hold both Seasons of Black Butler, is wounderful to look at, even if it does seem ‘plain’ compared to other Limited Edition boxsets released by FUNimation Entertainment. The entire carded box is Black, with traits taken from the TV Series (i.e. grey thorns on the front and back of the box). While most of the carded box is black it does have simplistic, but artisitic, drawnings of Sebastian and Ciel on the front, yet again with the Black Butler II logo, while on the back we are treated to newcomers Alios and his butler Claude, yet again featuring the Black Butler II logo.

Artwork on the Blu-ray case itself features Claude, with the Black Butler II logo on the front with episode listings and special features on the back, while on the inside we are treated to Sebastian and yet again the episode listings. Black Butler II Contains 12 Episodes and 6 OVA’s, these are spread over 3 DVD Discs and 2 Blu-ray discs, additionally this release of Black Butler II includes Cast Commentaries, Outtakes and trailers for other FUNimation titles.

Unlike Black Butler – Season 1, Black Butler II prooves to have better picture quality on Blu-ray than its DVD Counterpart, even though it is an HD upscale (SD Remaster) – making this release a fine addition to anyones collection.

Black Butler II has just been released onto DVD in the UK via Manga Entertainment UK, however if your after a more ‘richer’ experience then i’d recomended getting this particular Blu-ray release.
