  1. Thats not fair i wasnt even finish watching the season and they already took it down like wtf, i was literally crying;-;

  2. One question if your not going to have season 1 what is the point of starting with season 2? Black butler is one of those shows where if you didnt see season 1 then season 2 makes no sense.

  3. I just got netflix and this is one of the reasons i got it. So i searched black butler and it just gave me something related to black butler! it wasnt even related to it! I cant watch black butler season 1 or 2

  4. I noticed I thought it was just a error, and they confused season one with season two now I'm done with season two not getting a single thing that has happened 🙁 I need to watch season 1 and rewatch season 2!add me to that list of votes

  5. I just started reading Black Butler,and I knew it was on netflix,so I was really excited.But then they only have season 2. ;-;

  6. well good thing that it was just expired because if they removed it on purpose I would be very angry I really like the first season but any how they better get it back soon.

  7. Well, that leaves that question answered. Didn't realize I was watching the first episode of season 2 and I was incredibly confused XD Hopefully they get season 1 back up soon.

  8. Ahhh do not watch Season 2 without finishing Season 1! Season 1 is 10 times better than Season 1 anyway.

    I would suggest contacting Netflix via their chat feature (or call) and tell them you want Season 1 back. That way, they will realize how many fans want to watch it.

  9. I contacted Netflix about this. They said the license had expired, but that they had received input from fans and are trying to bring it back. I told them to add my vote, too.
