Whispers turn into screaming headlines in Earl Ciel Phantomhive's morning paper as word of the dead being resurrected takes society by storm. But when the unsavoury details of the business reach Ciel's ear, he and his superlative butler, Sebastian, book themselves on a luxury liner to look into these alleged miracles and the "Aurora Society" conducting them. As the waters lap and crash all around the vessel, mysterious individuals gather under the banner of the "Phoenix." Ciel and Sebastian may be one step closer to the truth, but have they sealed their fates by conducting an investigation on what could easily become a floating coffin...?

[[Contains spoilers, mostly about comparisons between this animation execution and the original manga]]

Book of Atlantic executes itself wonderfully. It maintains the line between action and comedy well - the latter of which I should remark is above average, due to its fair balance of deadpan-like humor and gags. For a film whose manga premise is about a boy who is in a contract with a demon, this film also possesses very heartwarming scenes between a typically sullen boy and his ever-cheerful adorable fiancée.

The Funimation team translated the film very well! A couple of mistranslated lines from the online scanlation that were for foreshadowing purposes weren’t read more

!contains no spoilers!

Kuroshitsuji Book of the Atlantic was the first anime movie I had ever seen in theaters (I know that's very sad lmao) and I was very pleased by it!

Right at the beginning I was a little upset that they had used CGI for the ship and people, it wasn't horrible just very noticeable. The movie follows the manga very well and they didn't change anything major that I recall. The voice acting was very amazing, the mood was fantastic and all the ladies, and few men, were fangirling like crazy. The only thing that bothered me at times were the animation. Most read more

I've been waiting to see Book of the Atlantic since it came out in January, and now, a few days after watching it, I finally can sit down and put together my thoughts.

It was well worth the wait!

Book of the Atlantic excels in the animation, even more so than Book of Circus. There were some noticeable uses of CGI which I found was slightly distracting, but it's a small flaw in an otherwise amazing film.

More of Ciel's past is revealed, including how he came to meet Sebastian, how they established their relationship. It was great to see the early stages of them read more

For a fan of the series, this is pretty much like the manga. As far as I remember the only thing they added was an extra shot of the Undertaker smirking a bit near the beginning. I don't really recommend a newcomer to start with this movie, not just because of the on-going story, but because this movie is essentially only set up for future arcs.

Nothing is really accomplished in this arc alone, which doesn't make the story bad, but all the other arcs in the manga have a clear beginning, middle and end. Something is always accomplished and characters are developed.
