"Like most things Japanese, furin arrived in Japan from China about two thousand years ago through Buddhism. Originally used to protect temples from evil spirits, furin provide aural comfort from the summer’s heat. Many homes in Japan don’t have air conditioning, so people hang furin in open windows. The blowing breeze causes the bead clapper to hit the glass, creating the tinkling sound of ice in a cool beverage. The melodious ringing of the bell refreshes and relaxes the Japanese."  text by Susan Miyagi Hamaker

synopsis:
In Victorian London, the breathtaking performances of the Noah’s Ark Circus have captured the attention of people all across the city. But the spell of magic and wonderment woven under the big top is not without consequences. Children have suddenly begun to vanish, and some suspect these mysterious performers are responsible.  In an attempt to get to the bottom of these disturbing disappearances, the dashing duo of demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, and his young master, Ciel Phantomhive, will infiltrate the circus and uncover whatever darkness may lie at its core!
