Anime Series Like Black Butler
Here are my favorite picks for anime that are quite similar to Black Butler. Keep in mind the list is in no particular order. I also included mostly supernatural and mystery type anime. Oz Vessalius, heir to one of the duke houses, has just turned fifteen. His life is rich and carefree, darkened only by the constant absence of his father.
Black Butler is one of the classic gothic anime series out there that provides an interesting, if not twisted, storyline guaranteed to draw in any viewer. Ciel Phantomhive has gone through a tragedy no one should ever have to suffer. Disappearing after the brutal murder of his parents, he was thought to be lost from the world. Living in a world of nightmares, the young boy is pushed into making an impossible choice; continue living in a real world hell, or make a deal with a demon in order to regain freedom and vengeance. Returning to his abandoned estate with a strange man named Sebastian, whom he claims is his butler, Ciel takes to being "the Queen's Guard Dog," investigating some of the strangest cases Victorian England has to offer. If you've already binge-watched this series, which is completely understandable, you may have a hole left behind that another anime needs to fill.

Oz Vessalius, the heir to the Vessalius Duke House, is celebrating his coming-of-age ceremony while suddenly he is banished to the depths of the Abyss, a place where lifeforms known as Chains exist. Both series have a rather dark plot where the boys get into contracts with otherworldly creatures that have supernatural powers and mysterious personalities.
