Once again, Sebastian and Ciel are invited to the Trancy estate. Ciel initially rejects the invitation, but after discovering some clues pertaining to the murder of his parents, he decides to pay Alois a visit, though only for the purpose of killing him. At the Trancy Estate, Alois has already prepared an enormous chessboard for Sebastian, Claude, the triple servants, and Hanna to battle on while the two young lords observe from afar. Before they can begin, Viscount Druitt appears for the costume ball, but he is a week late. So, he chooses to watch the fight with Ciel and Alois. The triple servants try to take down Sebastian first, but they are easily defeated after Sebastian impales their heads with a spear. Next is Hannah, who also fails after her bullets are unable to so much as graze the Phantomhive butler. Claude stops Sebastian from making another move, as it is tea time for their masters. After a short food fight between Claude and Sebastian, the two serve desserts to their lords and Druitt, who needs the restroom after fawning over both snacks. After the break, Claude and Sebastian resume their "dance." Claude retrieves a strange blade, the Laevatein, from Hanna's stomach and begins to attack Sebastian at full throttle. Meanwhile, Ciel asks Alois to take him inside the mansion for a brief tour, but once they're inside, he challenges Alois to a duel. Following Ciel's unsuccessful attempts to decapitate Alois, Alois gains the upper hand by pushing Ciel from the second story to the ground floor. Just as he intends to finish Ciel off, Ciel grabs Alois's blade. The two butlers outside hear the clang of swords, drop the fight, and track down their lords. However, they are too late. Ciel has stabbed Alois in the side, causing the latter to writhe on the floor. Ciel prepares to finish Alois despite his claims of also losing his parents and pleas for mercy, but is stopped by Claude. Ciel slaps Claude for this, which causes some of his blood to stick to Claude's face.

Claude has gathered his fellow household demons and informs them that his plan is in motion. He explains that Ciel and Alois are more alike than they appear, which he plans to use to his advantage. At the Phantomhive estate, Sebastian receives an order from the Queen, in which Ciel must solve another case. During the carriage ride to the victim's house, Ciel recalls his battle with Alois and how he said both of them are alike - this memory seems to disturb him. Ciel asks Sebastian if he's hiding anything from him regarding Alois Trancy, but Sebastian insists that he has not. The victim, a poor boy, states that a strange, rich boy had gouged out his eyes. Sebastian and Ciel are attacked before they can return to the carriage, so Sebastian asks Ciel to remain concealed in a crate. Ciel feels that he has forgotten things and slowly begins to recollect the time Sebastian had put him in a trunk and told him to stay there. This bothers him so much, he bursts from the crate and flees the scene. Meanwhile, Sebastian battles William Spears and Ronald Knox, who are still investigating Alois's soul. Sebastian eventually escapes. In another part of town, Ciel is framed for the crime he's investigating as Hannah tells the police he is a mentally ill, hostile Alois Trancy. Despite Ciel's protests, he is taken to psychiatric doctors who try to rid him of his "confusion" through torture. These doctors are later killed by Claude, who steps in as Ciel's psychiatrist. Using the shock induced by torture, hypnosis, and Alois's ring that contains his soul, Claude reveals that Luca had made a contract with Sebastian to burn the village and combines the memories of Alois and Ciel. They resemble each other so well ("deep blue to midnight blue"), Ciel believes it was Sebastian who killed his parents. After Sebastian defeats Hannah, who served as a diversion, he arrives to discover an enraged Ciel. Upon Claude's intervention, Ciel commands Sebastian to disappear from his sight. Claude then ta

Sebastian, Claude, and Hannah row a boat with Ciel's body to a remote island. Hannah says that both Sebastian and Claude will fight a true Demon's Duel for the right to claim Ciel's soul. After removing the Demon Blade from her body, Hannah places the sword in a cave and the two demon butlers begin their duel. Both butlers take the sword back and forth between them but neither manages to make a fatal blow. Sebastian, feeling confined by the cave, uses the sword to split the island in half creating a large fissure in the ground. In limbo, Ciel and Alois comment on the fight, with Ciel saying Alois doesn't understand Sebastian's motivations. Alois concedes the point, and apologizes for using Ciel for his own purposes. The battle appears to be a stalemate until Claude lands on a rock that gives way under him, causing him to lose his balance. The momentary distraction allows Sebastian to plunge the Demon Blade through Claude's body. Sebastian comments that Alois has been 'playing' with Claude all this time and he never realized it. As he dies, Claude comments that Alois managed to make a 'small ripple' in the long, boring life of a demon, so perhaps Alois's soul was more precious than he thought. Hannah sheds tears of joy and reveals that the contract Alois made with Hannah was to get Claude to acknowledge him. Sebastian comes for Ciel, but Hannah falls to the ocean below with him speaking unheard words that shock Sebastian. He dives in after Ciel and after reaching him, he kills Ciel just as he awakens. Back on the island, Hannah lies down with Claude's body, saying that she, Claude, Alois, and his brother can now all be together. Some time later, Ciel awakens in bed with Sebastian preparing him tea. As Ciel is dressed by Sebastian, his eye takes on a demon glow. It is revealed that as a condition of Alois's wish being fulfilled, Alois asked that Hannah makes Ciel's soul unattainable by either Sebastain or Claude. She did this by causing Ciel to be reborn as a demon. A

This show’s SO good, I loved it! The relationship between Ciel and Sebastian is very special and I really enjoyed Sebastian’s sarcastic humor. I pretty much liked every character in this anime, Grell’s hilarious! The servants are very lovable as well.
