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?

  I don't want to make any spoilers as I watched it knowing nothing of what would happen, and it is important that a non-manga reader would do the same. I had some really high expectations for this movie, as one of my best friends had already seen it and she kept telling me I had to watch it because it was so good AND IT SURE IS! Starting with the animation and sound, I believe this is undoubtedly the best animation we've seen from Kuroshitsuji so far. Every single detail from outfits, hair, eyes and even the scenario itself is spot on! It just feels so good to be able to watch something made so beautifully.. We get to know the background of a lot of the characters and all of them are much more complex than what meets the eye, some of them we already know their backstories (not all of it for sure) and others might surprise you! Now going to the plot. As you may know, this time we have a "zombie apocalypse" going on. At the beginning I was thinking "Well, how are the going to explain that??" The truth is, they used the zombie thing really well. It's not as if it makes sense, we're dealing with demons, shinigamis and zombies after all. However, they managed to fit this new theme alongside with a lot of references to real events that did happen. As always we get funny moments to alleviate the tension, intense fight scenes, especially with Sebastian and the Grim Reapers, but as I have said there are some surprises ;), and also touching scenes, you know the ones that make you grab the tissues XD. I give this a 10/10 because there really is nothing negative I can point out. Compared to Book of Circus and Book of Murder, which were already good, Book of the Atlantic embrasses all the positive aspects of them and goes beyond, provinding us with almost two hours of sheer entertainment, that to all of us anime lovers means much more than that, it let's you escape to another world, even for just a few hours. I haven't read the manga so I don't know if it made it justice, nevertheless once I do I'll be sure to update the review. (I think it does though, the movie is so good!!) So all you kuroshitsuji fans out there, go watch this movie (but first watch Book of Circus and Book of Murder!) and I hope my review cleared any doubts you had! PS: THERE ARE SO MANNY HOTTIES ON THIS ONE!! BRACE YOURSELVES!

I was in the cinema watching Black Butler: Book Of Atlantic, together with a good friend of mine who is the biggest fan of this series out of the two of us. This surely was worth the money watching, and it certainly was great in a cinema where the whole cinema reacts the same way to some moments. Book Of Atlantic is the only part of the manga I've -Even if I can't read it, because it was in Japanese.- so it was great now seeing all these small details, that you don't get from visual. The action and overall animation is much better than the season 1 and 2, and if so beautiful to look. A few details has either been added or deleted from the manga, but it's still great, and you can surely forgive them. When you watch and you're a big fan, you surely realize why you love this series, and also some of the characters -Cough, cough Grelle!!- and that surely was great. Even two days after I'm still crying in happiness over it, but I might be over-reacting, but don't blame me. It was so FREAKING AWESOME. Also another good part about watching it in the cinema was all those people cosplay as some of the characters! So AWESOME!! But if you're going to watch it, sooner or later, keep in mind to wait until after the texts. First, the music is fabulous -Is listing to it right now- Second, we'll get our Grell and Will scene! And also Lizzie and Ciel scene! So wait! Because I feel bad about the people who left during the texts. I highly recomend watching it if you like the series!
