His Butler, Omnipotent (その執事、万能, Sono Shitsuji, Bannō) is the third episode of season one of the Kuroshitsuji anime.


Grell Sutcliff has somehow been sent on a quick path on top of the tea cart, and they burst into a room, where they spill hot tea on Finnian. When they go to grab a napkin, they grab the entire tablecloth, ruining breakfast.

It is shown that the reason for them being there is to be trained by Sebastian Michaelis, but their incompetence only serves to anger and annoy Ciel Phantomhive and the other servants. Grell attempts to commit suicide, but Sebastian stops them, stating that if they stab themselves, their blood spilling will only create a larger mess.

Ciel and Sebastian go out into town to collect a cane. On their way back, it is shown that Grell and the servants are discussing the fire and deaths of the previous head of the Phantomhive household. It is then shown that Grell accidentally cut all of the trees and bushes into the shape of skulls.

Ciel and Sebastian return to the manor, where they find it made over with items like diamonds, hearts, and rabbits. They also find Grell hanging from a rope, in another attempt to commit suicide, and Sebastian cuts them down. A girl bursts in, and it is shown that Elizabeth Midford, Ciel's fiancée, is responsible for the overhaul of the mansion. Elizabeth then says she would like them to have a dance party, and runs off with Grell to prepare.

In Ciel's office, Sebastian questions if his refusal to dance is because he cannot dance. Ciel attempts to dismiss him, but Sebastian points out how important it is for a man of his social standing to be able to dance. He then goes into tutor mode and teaches him how.

It is shown that Elizabeth dressed all the servants in other, even more, feminine outfits for the dance. When Ciel enters the room, Elizabeth notices he is not wearing the ring she picked for him and steals his ring. When he demands it back, she breaks it. He goes to hit her, but Sebastian stops him, handing him his cane instead. Sebastian then informs Elizabeth the ring was very special, as it was a one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable, family ring. However, Ciel throws it out, stating he does not care about it and dries her tears.

Sebastian begins playing violin and Grell sings, to provide music for Elizabeth and Ciel to dance to.

That night, Grell leaves, thanking Sebastian for the training. Inside, Sebastian reveals that he fixed the ring, and returns it to Ciel. Spooked by how many times the ring has seen death, Ciel asks Sebastian to stay until he falls asleep, and Sebastian chuckles, commenting how amusing it is that he sees Ciel's weaknesses.
