What better way to spend White Day than with your favorite Black Butler characters? For those of you who may not know, White Day is when guys give chocolates to the girls who gave them presents on Valentine’s Day.

Today, Yana Toboso (author of the Black Butler manga) tweeted these special illustrations on the official Black Butler twitter account. 

Which one is your favorite?

Happy White Day!

Want a Black Butler Visa Card?
Unless you’re Jessica Simpson, or just make/spend as much as her, chances are you’re probably not carrying around an AmEx Black Card. But, at least people with accounts at Sumitomo Mitsui (a Japanese bank based in Yurakucho, Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan) can get a Black Butler card!
This special Visa card has an exclusive image of Sebastian drawn by Yana Toboso, the mangaka for the series. This promotion is a special collaboration with the Black Butler II anime series and enrollment is limited to the first 1,000 qualified applicants with an annual fee of ¥1,250.
We know quite a few Black Butler fans who’d give their right eye to get one of these cards.

At around the 27:00 minute mark of last night’s Season Three premiere episode ‘On Thin Ice’ of TNT’s Sci-Fi series Falling Skies, the character of Ben Mason and his friend are discussing manga and comics. While Black Butler is never mentioned directly, I think based on the dialogue its rather obvious that they were talking about Black Butler. 

Can you name any more references to anime in TV shows/movies/books?
