The young Earl Ciel Phantomhive—the Queen's Guard Dog—is once again called to investigate seemingly supernatural phenomena when news of miraculous resurrections begins to surface in Victorian London. Along with Sebastian Michaelis, his demon butler, they board the luxury cruise liner Campania to investigate rumors of the Aurora Society—a medical organization suspected of experimenting on the dead.

Grim reapers begin to appear on the ship, and it becomes apparent that the ship is about to be overrun with the undead as a devious plan is put into motion. Ciel and Sebastian must now uncover the secrets that lie behind the Aurora Society's phoenix symbol, and with the help of some old acquaintances, return the undead to their coffins or share a watery grave.

For reference, I'm writing this assuming you've already seen all the other Black Butler content up to this point.
This movie has the story we've all been waiting for. If you're like me and LOVE flashbacks and learning more about the characters, strap in because it's a lot in this one. And the plot twists? OH MY JESUS I was screaming. Absolutely losing my mind. Truly did not see any of it coming. Hopefully you'll lose your mind as well.
This is a great continuation of the arcs, directly coming from the end of the last one. Finny, Baldroy, and Mey Rin aren't big in ...

Mixed Feelings
tl;dr Lots of retconning and idk if it's different in the manga but I am kind of disappointed at the lost potential.

Okay so, overall. It was good. HOWEVER:

This movie seemed to have retconned a lot of stuff. I'm glad they didn't keep Elizabeth as the typical shounen love interest who is useless. It was an interesting touch, but it also felt a bit over the top that she's some super sword master all of a sudden. Sure, it was explained with a flashback but that's the problem. There is no build-up and it does not make sense.

Second, Ciel caring about protecting Elizabeth seemed ...

***Spoilers included***

Kuroshitsuji is a well-known, well-loved series, with a fascinating story and an interesting take on Victorian England. It is well paced, with lovingly crafted animation and beautiful sound. The characters are well-rounded, and the story is fairly consistent within its own boundaries.

This movie throws all of that out the window. It comes off as a shameless cash-in on a popular franchise, which ignores parts of the story as told up to this point in an attempt to pull off its big plot twists. The mixture of CGI and traditional animation is clunky and poorly executed at best. The background music is barely even worth ...
