THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
And so this episode ends the arc. The animation quality could have been better but the soundtrack was great here, too. Honestly, I'm disappointed that
wasn't shown in the end.

I missed him so much, he's one of my favourites. (Don't look unless you watched the episode.)

First 2:30 mins. to review previous ep.

[spoiler]Jeremy showing how knowledgeable he is, like Sabby. He can even do magic.

Everyone's being suspicious of him, so he proves himself clean, then to the case with Jeremy being the detective.

Not enough food because of Kimura-san's character eating so many. As Jeremy, he solved the dinner, too.

With the snake, they "solved" the case. The explanation was so flawless that it sounds real. But the author feeling weird about it.

So, Jeremy is really Sabby. Shocking truth with what they think, as well as their wicked and perfect cooperation. The real killer is Kimura-san's character?! lol @ trying to go back to be dead person several times by running. They also matched what the queen wanted him to do (to show the ability and delete both of them). Sabby also showed himself for the topic for the author to write. It took him long time to complete, but destroyed after that.

The real truth about the snake is... Snake from the Circus!! He got left behind from previous arc while the attack. So he's the only one who didn't know the reason behind circus's mission. Ciel kept him.

His funeral for a revival act. lol

Hmmm, it wasn't that of a bad adaptation. But the manga was more suspense/thrill-building.

Have to say that I forgot Ciel had to understand the letter better or it would come bite him.

It was really entertaining with Sebastian explaining the entire crime scene to Arthur. All those near misses with Sebastian almost getting found out, that crisis with the cat, Grey and Ciel having fun.

Arthur keeping his word too to not tell anyone. Snake appearing and getting asked to join the household. Quite nice to see Book of Circus being connected at the end.

That funeral, everything went so nicely at the end. The mystery aspect was quite enjoyable, such an elaborate plan too!

Everything got explained.

My gut feeling was correct

SNAKE AHHHHH <3

Now he's a Phantomhive servant.

Does that mean Ciel would have invited the entire Circus back then if they didn't have to die? T__T

of course he wouldn't invite them, bc if they weren't guilty, then Ciel and Seb wouldn't join circus, and whole arc wouldn't take place.
he said that bc he found Snake to be convinient for him in the future, AND SO HE WILL BE bless Ciel for doing that. I just love Snake's moments in manga, especially in ship arc.

all the prayers for the ship arc anime to be created (;__;)

honestly, the part when Sebastian explains whole mystery was all i was waiting for. simply hilarious. one of my faves was seb's new hairstyle xd


there was only one small thing i was disappointed with

It was nice seeing that cat scene animated. Sebby and his adorable kitties. And Sebby's making his demonic presence known, and the funeral moment. Nice.

I know. With every anime they seem to alter the personality of the characters a little as not to out shine the original (Manga) version. Like dumb them down a tad. Still, it was nice to watch. No fillers at least, but some missing scenes.. There were some that I would have liked to see that didn't make it.

Note: Do not trust the sub version that comes available on anime streaming site. The original subber had their incompleted subs stolen from during a live stream. You can read the story here.

The 2nd season isn't canon, Book of Murder is what truly happened in the manga.

Lol, that nailed it. Good episodes overall although somewhat predictable about the case. I like the mixture of the drama and comedy especially with Sebastian though :p

And what a role he played in this episode. Brilliant!

He KEPT the snake guy?! How the hell does that coexist with the main story plot of Black Butler? So confused. Also, as if Sebastian was able to fool everyone that he was the priest guy, does that mean that if you took this story away from the main plot Sebastian would have to dress up as him whenever he went out? Or would they go by the whole, oh yeah he just came back to life at the last second story. I don't know I feel like it doesn't fit with the main story. Or maybe it isn't supposed to...

Everything after the curry arc in the first anime is not considered manga canon so it is not counted.

Holy hell, I've just been reminded (once more) why I fucking love this series. Book of Murder has just been upped to one of my favorite anime. The jokes and reactions between Sebastian and Ciel was too much; not to mention Sebastian himself stole the whole show. His running back and forth was fucking hilarious. Wasn't sure whether he broke the 4th wall or not when he

It was intentionally very obvious they were the same person, they let us in on it and showed even Ciel knew (he starts calling him "omae" and then corrects himself) basically right after he arrived.

I thought it was rather obvious that Jeremy was Sebastian since...Well, my seiyuu ears could pick up that Ono Daisuke was voicing both of them. The mystery was pretty interesting though. I didn't like that they didn't tie up all the loose ends and introduced a new villain at the end. It was kind of an asspull. Meh. Not that surprised since it is Kuroshitsuji after all.

I liked hearing the new voice actors!

I hope there is more Kuroshitsuji in the future.

Great adaptation overall. Animation could have been a bit better in parts but it wasn't terrible by any means.

I do have one complaint though...why is Mei-rin's voice so annoying? I know this isn't just for Book of Murder, and I know that she is the clumsy maid and everything, but still.

Anyway, Snaaaaaaake <3 He's so cute. I can't wait to see more of him and Undertaker if they decide to animate the Campania arc (please, please, please...)

Snake isn't a villian... he really does enter the phantomhive household as a servant after this.

Really great and enjoyable OVA. To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed in myself for not noticing Jeremy was Sebastian. I was looking over things a bit too much, and my mind was farting. I did find it a bit too stretchy that literally the whole thing was planned by Ciel, Sebastian, and the queen, and executed without too many problems.
Sebastian says he does not lie, but he lied by omission.

A perfect example of the old switcheroo! Great episode though and I really liked how everything got resolved, really interesting story in general I must say and to be honest I can't get enough of this franchise! I do hope we'll see something next to this in the future as well!

I miss the Circus arc. It was real brutal and touching between the tomboy and Ciel. Snake being part of the family is a good thing, it would of been a waste of a unique character like him. I hope there is another sequel with him, being put in good uses.

As a Kuroshitsuji fan I find this the richest story in Kuroshitsuji, until now.
I love the setting, the characters and the way the story is being told.
Also, there was not a single minute that I felt bored.

I loved it!

Yup, one of my favourite arcs in Kuroshitsuji after all :) This part was much better than the first one, the 'reveal' was too funny, especially because I forgot most of it, it's been a few years since that arc ended in the manga after all.

I really hope that we will get another Kuroshitsuji season in a close future.

damn this was amazing. I loved how the mystery went and how it was completely in the palms of Ciel / Sebastian's plan.

9/10 OVA.
Snake joining was really surprising though but I'm glad he did!

Yes, it was easy in the dub too to get that it was the same voice actor as Sebastian doing Jeremy (no one even gets credited as him on here lol), I said it immediately I said "it's Sebastian with an older voice and older different face" lol but he also acted pretty much exactly the same as well as sounding it so it wasn't hard to figure out tbh.

If the servants really couldn't get that and were fooled by the bell ringing at the end in the coffin and just accepted he was buried alive with no explanation then they are really dense lol. It was cute though when they all jumped on him and were so happy that he was alive :3

When Sebastian found all the cats in the rain and raced to put them in the closet it was hilarious! I love how much he loves cats LOL! it's so freaking adorable, I need a guy like that xD

I liked Sebastian's explanation of how he pulled everything off, that was much appreciated and needed lol. I can't believe how much running around he did to play the corpse and Jeremy at the same time, must have been exhausting lol.

When he had to get back in the room before Grey as well!

So it was Grey, well I did suspect it may have been him and the snake bite came from one of Snake from the Circus's snakes who was trained to get Ciel from scent but someone else was in his room, I kinda forgot about him but yeah, that does make sense and he didn't seem to like the revelation of what they'd been doing.

I didn't expect the German guy to have originally took poison and done it as a joke though only to actually end up dead.

I am surprised that Ciel said he could stay at the mansion though tbh, probably wouldn't have been had Snake known about the children or not cared, it'd be interesting to see their adventures together.

Who did the OP mean was supposed to die?

How did I not get that Arthur was Arthur Connan Doyle lol. In the dub his voice kept sounding sort of Scottish at times and other times just sort of English when he was Irish-Scottish according to Wikipedia which I didn't really know. I knew he was British obviously since I am but not exactly where from.

I'm surprised Sebastian told him he was demon to give him inspiration as a writer and then he wrote the Sherlock books and based them on them lol. That'd be so funny if it were true but well, obviously not unless the manga writer knows something lol.

Arthur only guessed Jeremy was Sebastian after he spoke French to him since he heard him speak French with Ciel - I mean since Ciel means sky in French then he should be able to speak it lol. Or a bit lol. I thought he might have got it before.

OMG I just looked at who did the voice of Arthur on here in the dub and his picture scared me lol. I couldn't even tell at the end credits if the name was male or female, I was like "what is that?" lol.

I really hope they make another series or something!

I do really need to read the manga! I read the first two chapters when I watched the first series but then was reading so many other things and the chapters were so long I gave up.

But I need more sexy animated Sebastian and more of him with cats for sure! lol <3

Seb showing the tiniest hint of getting flustered with all the running around and getting annoyed when Grey kicks him gave me LIFE. He was so funny this entire episode. The cat moment, stuffing them in the closet because he felt sorry for them all out in the rain.

Snakeeeee <3 I'm so pleased to see him! This arc has set everything up quite nicely for the ship arc in 2017!

This was the clean up episode and I must say it was well done and filled with funny moments. Liked how they explained every little detail. Kinda messed up that dude who was killed by the snakes was just a oops situation. Also i like the moment with ciel and snake mainly cause it looked like ciel actually showed remorse for what he had done especially for doll since he just killed her with not flinching at all. Though it could be all a lie and bringing snake in and lieing to him might bight him on the ass. Also yea it was obvious as hell that sebastion was jeremy. It wasint even the voice. I mean just look at him especially the eyes.
