black butler is a dark comedy and dark fantasy anime series ranked among the 100 best anime of all time according to many lists. First released in 2008, the anime is based on a manga series that Japanese manga artist Yana Toboso began writing in 2006. Set in the Victorian era, the story consists of three seasons so far. The titled anime season of ‘Black Butler: Book of Circus‘, which was released four years after the second season, much to the delight of fans. Licensed by Funimation in the final season, the anime is animated by A-1 Pictures (Alto the studio of beloved animes Kaguya-sama: Love is war and Wotakoi: Love is hard for Otaku† Originally aired on MBS from July 10, 2014 to September 12, 2014, the anime was also featured on Netflix US and Hulu TV† In this way, it is questionable whether the anime, which has become popular worldwide, is a fourth season† Let’s remember the storyline of the anime and see what we know so far about the fourth season.

What was Black Butler’s storyline?

Kuroshitsujic (Black Butler) takes the public to England in the late 1880s. On the 10th birthday of Ciel Phantomhive, one of England’s wealthiest families and one of the Phantomhive family who also served the Queen, their mansion was set on fire and his mother and father died. Ciel disappears and reappears about a month later. In addition, when he appears, he is accompanied by a steward named Sebastian. As explained in the first episode, Sebastian is actually a demon. He saved Ciel from death and gave him all his strength so that he could take revenge on those who killed his family. Of course, in return, he’ll take Ciel’s soul when the revenge is complete. Throughout the episodes, Ciel’s confrontation with the evil that roams the streets of England is discussed with Sebastian, as well as searching for clues about his family’s killers.

Will there be a fourth season of the anime?

From September 26, 2021at the time of writing, the studio of the anime A-1 Picturesmanga publisher Square Enixor a related company doesn’t have it yet renewed the anime for one fourth season† It can sometimes take years for anime to be renewed for a new season. However, unlike TV dramas, we see that anime often doesn’t get canceled and has a new season even after years. Especially the fact that Square Enix still airs the Black Butler manga series, brings to mind why not a new anime season in the future. However, the fact that the manga is still airing is not a sufficient criterion for us to see a new season. It is possible to examine it in more detail and speculate about a new season under some key factors.

Manga factor in terms of the fourth season

As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, the manga is written and illustrated by Yana Toboso. Square Enix, a beloved anime like Toilet-bound Hanako-kun and the publisher of AAA games like Final Fantasy, has been publishing the manga on Monthly Gfantasy since 2006. The good news is that the manga series is still being written.

30 volumes and 173 chapters have been published for the manga series, including those not yet in tankobon format. So how many were adapted to anime? While 8 volumes were adapted in the final season of the anime, a total of 14 volumes were adapted over 3 seasons. It seems that less than half of the manga series was used in the preparation of the anime. Almost all the existing volumes were adapted when the third season of the anime aired, but later the source material for new seasons was formed. Currently, the producers have enough source material to make the fourth season of the anime.

How were the anime’s disc sales?

Disc sales are also valuable, as animes are productions with profit expectations. In general, an anime is expected to have a new season if the current season averages 4,000 sales. Kuroshitsuji’s disk sales were well above this target. It sold 23,288 units in the first period, followed by 10,498 units and 9,204 units. As these numbers show, anime is also very popular in Japan. It’s quite likely that there will be a new season if we look at disc sales.

Except disc sales

The fact that the anime is distributed exclusively means additional profits aside from disc sales. Black Butler has appeared on platforms such as Netflix and Hulu. In addition, the film, which debuted in 2017, also provided additional revenue for the company. Financially everything is looking good for a new season.

What about popularity?

We have mentioned that the anime is among the 100 most popular anime of all time. †myanimelist† It still has good search volume in Google searches even years after it aired. It is followed by 188.5k people on Twitter† And as a result of all this, it has a popularity rating of 96.1%. You can check our anime list to see other anime in this score zone.

When is the fourth season of Black Butler?

A fourth season of the anime has not been confirmed yet. It seems possible to see the fourth season after the third season, which was last released in 2014. As a result of our detailed speculation above, we see that the manga has plenty of stock material, disc sales and financial competence are seen, and it has enough popularity. We don’t think the decision-making committee will say no to the fourth season, and our estimates seem to be the most reasonable date for a new season in 2023† We will update you as more official statements become available. Until then, you can read the rest of the anime story from the manga or watch dark fantasy anime like Devilman crybaby and Devil’s Line
