** Chapter 123 reveals that this was just the tip of the iceberg. As it turns out, [[spoiler: Ciel had deduced that, for whatever reason the Sphere Music Hall group is gathering blood, the dead bodies they're hiding are being drained because they don't have enough. So, the whole development of his own music hall was to steal just enough of the crowds away that their blood supplies would dip, and they'd have to once again drain someone dry. And when they do, Sebastian is waiting there for the hall's goons at the body dump site, along with a photographer, exposing the whole thing]]. And when the goons [[ShootingSuperman try to shoot him]], Sebastian merely throws knives into their guns, blocking them, and then knocking them senseless.

*** Sphere hall uses lighting, costumes, etc to create specific atmospheres? P5 do the same, only taking it even farther with tricks like turning all the lights off in parts, having some themed songs with unique moves (and minor costume details) specific to the songs, etc.

*** Bravat's shows generally start with the four main dancers wearing large concealing cloaks? Ciel's have the dancers use bungee cords to swing onto the stage from the rafters, using cloaks to conceal the safety equipment.

*** Where Bravat's shows allowed the audience to go to special meetings (actually where they get drained of their blood) after the shows so that the audience feels like they're getting to take part in something special and inclusive, the Phantomhive 5 greet audience members directly right after the shows to talk to them in person.

** Chapter 122 goes further, with Ciel using [[ChekhovsSkill the same principal behind the tin-can telephones used in chapter 71]] to create rudimentary microphones in his music hall, allowing him to completely avert a very real problem faced by ''all'' professional performances in this era; how to gather the biggest crowd without making the audience so big that people in the back can't hear the performance.

* The servants the Circus tried to invade the mansion. [[spoiler: Ciel didn't necessarily hire them for cleaning the house; he hired them to take care of intruders while he's away. Mey-rin is a sniper with telescopic vision, Finn has superhuman strength, and Bard is a war veteran with exceptional foresight, and planning skills. Add them together and you get some WAY badass fighting scenes with these three.]]

* Chapter 118 has one for Ciel's intelligence. Creepy Cult manages to be a VillainWithGoodPublicity by inventing the first {{Boyband}}? Steal their idea, set up shop ''right across the street'', give your performers better outfits and sell food (company speciality) at your hall. He even has his band debut ''in the middle of a Shinistra performance'' so they can be sure they're stealing Bravat's followers, and has Sebastian fix up their new hall so that they can start performing in two weeks, ensuring Bravat's ignorance of the incoming competition before they arrive.
