Unrelated to the manga

All the episodes here have nothing to do with the manga, but I would recommend "His Butler, Phantom Image".The servants here can be pretty funny. "His butler, on ice", "His butler, however you please", and "His butler, forlorn" are a little like the Circus Arc (both have kidnappings) but then comes in armies of dolls and Grell Sutcliff so I'm reminded of the Ship Voyage Arc... only it takes place in the city.
Ok

Pretty good, follows the manga till "His Butler, Merrymaking" then it starts going off in a different direction. So for those who like the manga, don't watch Ep 7 since it has nothing to do with the manga.
Very Interesting

It's a great way to learn some WW1 facts, and the machine vs fabricated animals make it easily memorable.
Ignore the blood and gore, and it's great!

I read Grimm's Fairy Tales and I really loved comparing the originals to the versions in this book! The author does a great job of fitting Hansel and Gretel's adventures into stories such as the Seven Swallows, The Devil's Three Golden Hairs, etc... You can even read this book aloud to kids as long as you heed the author's warnings about when to stop reading :)

Part two of the Murder Arc. I really love how the author of Sherlock Holmes is in this:)
