Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler is an extremely popular manga and anime series, Groove previously released a collaboration series based on characters from the series which featured Pullip as Grell Sutcliff, Dal as Ciel Phantomhive and Taeyang as Sebastian Michaelis back in 2009. Two years Groove released the same three characters are part of the DoColla Line with Little Pullip+ as Grell Sutcliffe, Little Dal + as Ciel Phantomhive and Little Taeyang+ as Sebastian Michaelis. Starting in 2015, Groove started a new series based on the character designs used in Kuroshitsuji ~Book of Circus~ the manga arc/third season of the anime series. Taeyang Sebastian ~Book of Circus~ Version was the first doll released as a part of this new line in February of 2015, Isul Ciel ~Book of Circus~ Version was released in May of 2015, Taeyang Undertaker followed in December of 2015 and a Taeyang version of Grell Sutcliffe of February of 2016.
One of the biggest complaints about the original line of Kuroshitsuji dolls was that maybe Dal was not the best character to represent Ciel, Isul did not yet exist at the time so this time Ciel was represented by Isul. Grell was originally released as a Pullip but in this newer collaboration line they are represented by Taeyang.
