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 ...

Mixed Feelings
This review comes from someone who truly loves the Kuroshitsuji manga and its art, so bear that in mind. I'll try to keep it simple and honest.


This arc is certainly one of the best in the manga, not only because it is action-packed, but also because Yana Toboso's art is impeccable. And unfortunately, this movie does not do it justice. The animation is sloppy and lazy, the zombies or Bizarre dolls do not walk, they apparently float pixel by pixel, the action scenes are very poorly animated, and the sad thing is that most of the movie happens in darkness.

The adaptation is odd ...

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 ...
