as Black Butler
by Chuang Yi
Only one English release means I can quote CY's Black Butler 4 (ISBN 978-981-4341-13-4; SRP: SGD 8.90) preview up here:
London — the capital of the Great Empire — is once again under siege, as a string of bizarre attacks on British citizens returned from India sends rumours flying and casts a pall upon Queen Victoria's rule. Sent in by Her Majesty, young Earl Phantomhive and his most capable butler, Sebastian, follow a trail that collides head-on with an Indian youth who claims to be a prince. And this prince possesses an extraordinary butler of his own! As an intense rivalry between the two butlers begins to form, will the kitchen be the dueling duo's final battleground?
Black Butler 4 contains chapters 15 through 19:
That Butler, Freeloader,
That Butler, Foreigner,
That Butler, Competing,
That Butler, Shadow and
That Butler, Different Talent (NOT Chuang Yi's titles).
