To watch or not to watch, that is the question of this review for Kuroshitsuji’s Hamlet.

And so begins the production of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” in the Phantomhive household. Master Ciel had intended to put on a play for the disadvantaged children as a means to gain publicity for his company by coming off as a philanthropist. But what’s this – a sudden mishap had occurred meaning his professional actors won’t be able to make it?! Whatever shall they do? Well, his faithful and most competent butler, Sebastian has an idea: cast themselves in the play!

The OVA is a nice little side story that quenches the read more

The OVA was very fun to watch.

First of all the idea was very nice. And it ended well done. It had the regular Kuroshitsuji's climat and humor, the OST was fitting and seyius did a great job. Nothing to be mad about.

Though it wasn't a perfection. I'd like to see more practicing before the actual 'Hamlet' play. The OVA could've been done better than that but still it was a real fun to watch.

Now I wasn't expecting that I would love this equally to the main show's episodes.
I watched it after I finished the whole anime and I recommend you to do the same. Watching it like this, it felt like a last "farewell" to all the characters in a very enjoyable kind of way!
The OVA had all those elements that the anime holds, even in just this one episode.
I found it both entertaining and emotional.
I gave a 10 to all aspects as it still has top notch quality in story, art, sound and character's design and interaction. The opening and ending theme are the same as in read more

A very well made special 9/10 overall.

As it is, the end of Kuroshitsuji made be cry even though the ending is completely filler even now. Ciel's circumstances and his interactions, especially around the end of the series, with Abberline and Sebastian were such a mass of contradiction! I felt the same sort of contradiction from the dialogues between Ciel and Sebastian in this special.

Sebastian came out fantastically as a demon who toys with Ciel's thoughts. He says things which would be considered good advice and yet he'll also force Ciel to accept the point of no return that he has already crossed. And read more
