‘Black Butler: Book Of Circus’ Anime Reveals Key Visual, Adds Cast

Black Butler - Book Of Circus

We got some good information on the new series back at AnimeJapan 2014 for Black Butler: Book of Circus with the plans for the OVA and TV series itself. We learned back then that there will be a new OVA as well that will land this fall in theaters before hitting home video, which adapts the Book of Murder arc of the series and the TV series itself which lands in July. We’ve had the staff and casting revealed previously but now the production has updated with more characters added and a new key visual by the character designer of the series that is just simply striking.

The new voice actors added are:

Yuuki Tai as Peter
Mayumi Shintani as Wendy
Yoshihiro Koyanagi as Jumbo
Ryohei Kimura as Charles Grey
Tomoaki Maeno as Charles Phips

The production for the series is strong with A-1 Pictures tackling the animation while Noriyuki Abe will be directing. Abe has a solid slate of credits behind him, working on a number of long series over the years that have worked off of manga properties such as Flame of Recca and Yu Yu Hakusho. Character designs are set to be done by Minako Shiba.
