Black Butler (vol. 7) by Yana Toboso

Black Butler: Vol 7 - Yana Toboso

The villain in this volume is almost laughably over-the-top. He went so far as to get plastic surgery to try to be as beautiful as Ciel's father and friends and to become worthy of Ciel (there is not enough “OMG ick” in the world). To be fair, Ciel's father was super-gorgeous. By the way, he briefly appears in a flashback. Yay!

It's almost like Toboso decided to balance out the creepy, vile Baron with an extra helping of easy-on-the-eyes fan-service. Not only did Ciel's father make an appearance, but Sebastian had a sex scene.

Inside back cover extra: Black Dancer.
