Ciel Phantomhive and his demonic butler, Sebastian, are back! And this next case has Ciel and Sebastian treading some rough waters. Aboard the luxury liner Campania, the two investigate an illegal human experiment that involves resurrecting the dead. But the closer they get to the truth, the closer they are to their own deaths! Will this be their final case or will one hell of a butler keep them afloat?
As expected of Kuroshitsuji, this movie has an outstanding animation and story line. Definitely worth watching it at the theatre. In this movie you could see more of Ciel's back story through Sebastian's eyes. The scenes were really heartbreaking. We could also see more of Elizabeth's backstory and we get to see another side of Elizabeth that was never revealed before (spoiler: she's a secet badass ^o^). Also, there are lots of badassery shown by many characters in the movie. This movie definitely contains a lot more action and fighting scenes than The Book of Circus. The only thing I didn't like about this movie was the fact that they didn't show the scene where Ciel and the butler Tanaka met again at the hospital not long after Ciel and Sebastian made their contract (this scene is present in the manga). I feel the scene was very touching and is quite important to the storyline later on, especially when Tanaka bowed in front of Sebastian asking him to take care of Ciel. I think the scene should have been incorporated into the movie. Other than that, I think this is a gorgeous piece of art and it is a must watch for Kuroshitsuji fans everywhere. ^o^ P.S. a couple of people have asked me where did I watch the film (because the film is so recently released and it is still not available online). I'm currently studying abroad in Japan, so I watched The Book of Atlantic at the cinema a couple of weeks ago^^
This week, I was able to catch this movie (subbed) in theaters, and I was surprised at how good it was! After finishing season 2 nearly a few days earlier, I was unimpressed with the slowly diminishing quality shown in the episodes, and I was almost not motivated to go watch this movie.Luckily, I still gave this a chance, and I was astonished at how well certain aspects were carried out.This movie follows the Book of Circus arc, if I remember correctly, so there's a few characters and back stories that you need before watching the movie. I didn't have any of this information, but I can say that I was still enticed nonetheless, and as a result of not knowing certain things, I was able to actually get quite a few moments of astonishment, and tons of laughter (coughs reference to Phoenix pose coughs). In general, the animation was really gorgeous, except for the 3D CGI parts that the animators put in, which felt a little out-of-place.I think that this movie excelled in character development for a few of its characters, including Lizzy, Sebastian, and Ciel. It also did a wonderful job of incorporating well-placed transitions with its animation, and the background music was fitting, as always. Overall, I find this movie to be a good watch, and it really restored my faith in the Black Butler anime series after watching the disappointing season 2.
Going into this knowing it was Black Butler I knew that i was going to be entertained in the theater, but also knowing that it was Funimation made it a safe bet. In the movie you see all the framilar faces: Elizebeth, Grell, and yes even Snake. But if you have havent seen/followed the series most of the characters outside of the main will confuse you for the first 1/3 of the movie. Since the movie starts directly in the rising action, without any leading up or anything. which makes the first third of the movie very fast paced. The CGI at times is spot on, but a majority of the time is something that seems very under expectations for Funimation. Outside of that the animation was pretty good, but in contrast to the series animation seemed a few notches above. The story for the 2/3 is great and has a "realistic" feel to it, but it seems like there was a multiple people in directing this movie since this was the best part, excluding the very end. So if you are a fan of the Black Butler series you will definitly enjoy this movie, but if you are a casual fan that doesnt know anything other then the premisis of the series you'll be somewhat at a losss for the begining.
