And of course, we also have Black Butler. If you’ve been reading my stuff for a while, you’ll know that I am a huge sucker for the gothic European settings. There are only a few anime that pull it off better than Black Butler. And well, the show is back with Black Butler: Public School arc.

So welcome to another news article. This week we will be talking about Black Butler: Public School arc and going over everything we know about it. Quite a bit to cover as the anime is coming out very soon. So let’s just get started with the news right away.

What do we know about Black Butler: Public School Arc?

First and foremost, the anime is scheduled to come out in the summer 2024 season. We even have a confirmed release date of 13th April for it. Kenjiro Okada will be directing the anime at CloverWorks. All of the old cast members will be reprising their respective roles. We also have a few new additions to the cast: Tsohiki Watanabe, Junya Enoki, Shunsuke Takeuchi, and Tatsumaru Tachibana.

If you are confused about the watch order of the series, it is pretty simple. It goes Sason 1->Season 2 & Book of Circus->Book of Murder->Book of the Atlantic->Public School arc. Book of Murder is just an OVA of 3 episodes while Book of the Atlantic is just a movie. The Public School arc will be the first “proper” season for this anime ever since Book of Circus.

What do I think?

If you notice, all the previous seasons of this anime were made by A1 Pictures. No disrespect to A1 Pictures, I think it is a great studio but I can’t help but be happy about the jump to CloverWorks. I won’t say that CloverWorks hasn’t made mistakes in the past. But in general, I do think that CloverWorks has better-quality animations than A1 Pictures. And of course, I am excited about finally getting a Black Butler sequel after all these years. Book of the Atlantic came out all the way back in 2017. That is 7 years ago at this point.

That is all for now!

Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. Black Butler: Public School arc should be an exciting anime to watch especially given how good the Book of the Atlantic movie was. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
