Manga Review: Black Butler, Volume 24, by Yana Toboso

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: October 2017
Volumes: 26+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 23. 25.

Goodreads Synopsis:

A mysterious cult mesmerises legions of spectators with glorious rituals of song and dance. But the unbridled passion it inspires in its followers gives Queen Victoria cause for concern, and she urges Earl Ciel Phantomhive and his expert butler, Sebastian, to do some digging. Ciel has his own reasons for taking this lot to task, but the discovery of the cult's penchant for blood means the Queen's watchdog must make an immediate move. And when Sebastian goes probing behind the stages and into the shadows, he's met by a girl standing in his way, her sword ready to meet him head on...


Both this plot line is taking forever, and it's longer between volumes. It's very frustrating, when I so badly need to know what's happening to Lizzie! I need to know she's going to be safe. Urgh, it's frustrating!
So, in this volume, we find out some of what the organization is actually doing with people. What they're experimenting on and what they've discovered. Ciel and Sebastian make some discoveries and Ciel makes some business decisions regarding it. I do think his decision is fun, but it also feels like we're prolonging this plot line.
While we make some discoveries, and we even get to see Lizzie for a short period, it feels like very little happened. It makes sense, though, because these little steps will lead to bigger things and that's important.
Just frustrating! I need to know more.
