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



Also, dat cat scene tho

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.

Awesome OVA. Though it was obvious that Jeremy = Sebastian...

Sebastian's face when he saw the cats was so cuuuute

Snaaake <3 He's weird but funny. This was the first time I saw his face with emotions lmao

This was genius. I expected Grey to be the culprit from the beginning but I didn't get any clue until explained. 10/10

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!

This mystery cheating can only be done with Sebastian around.

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

What a suprise that


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.

Just when I thought that it was supposed to be a dark series just like the Book of Circus, but it ended up being hilarious as fuck. Ohmygod. I'm honestly mindblown right now with everything that happened. FUck. Hahahahahaha.

That reveal with Jeremy being Sebby was quite a shock for me, though I can honestly hear Daisuke's voice in Jeremy, so I had a hunch that yeah I think he's Sebby, but I was still shocked knowing Sebby is Jeremy and Jeremy is Sebby. Lmfao.

Sebby with cats, I s2g. Cute as fuck! ;-;

Wasn't expecting that Snake will appear in the end. Ohmygod. And now he's a part of the Phantomhive Family. So, Ciel didn't tell him that Joker and the rest were dead? Holy shit.

And as always Sebby and Ciel will have moments where they're lowkey making fun of each other. Ohmygod. I want to see Sebby's naked body, too. Fuck.

SOLID 9/10. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA THANK YOU FOR THE LAUGHS! I REALLY ENJOYED THIS SERIES.

P.S. Let me just say that part with Finny, Bard, Liz, and Mey-rin about to throw themselves on Sebastian inside the coffin when they found out he's alive immediately reminded me of this Barakamon ending scene.



And considering that Handa-san and Sebby have the same seiyuu makes this scene so cute and hilarious. Hahahaha.

HISASHIBURI, UNDERTAKER. HAHA.

Amazing serie, tho I have tho give it
8/10
because of two factors.
1. Snake dude shouldn't have been here
2. Why did they show the professor in his late 60s or 70s .... It doesnt make any sense. It's way in the future.
But besides those 2 point, amazing serie. Loved it so much mainly because I love these kind of mysteries AS I'VE READ THE BOOK " AND THEN THERE WERE NONE", which is my favorite mystery book.
NOW, ONTO THE BEST BLACK BUTLER ARC!!
Come on man,where is that Noragami season 3 masterpiece.We want it, Bones!

I might have missed this, but how did Sebastian convince fellow servants that he was not dead? He did ring the bell and that only proved he was alive, but how did he explain to the servants that he was stabbed and was still alive?

I watched the movie before the ova, and now I’m heartbroken to know snake stayed with Ceil because of a lie. Funny this is exactly what I love about Black Butler.
