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.

[[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 like Black Butler, don’t get me wrong, but this Movie was PURE SHIT. This goes to show that everything after season one is bull crap. The producers have milked the franchise so much that they have become saggy old granny tits. To the people that dabble in Black Butler because of the husbandos, it is not worth it, turn back now.

This wasn't a movie, this was a filler episode that lasted for two hours of excruciating pain. The plot was literately titanic + zombies. There was horrific CGI and no effort into the sound track. Too many flash backs, too much effort incorporating all 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
