Is there any news about a continuation of season 2? I really want to see more happening after that. I've looked around the interwebs but cant find anything yet saying of a continuation. At this point I dont care if it was in the manga or not, Im just not content at all with the way season 2 ended and want more of that part of the story line even if it was made up.

~ J Michael Tatum as Sebastian Michaelis is the best that anime can offer me , it would be a sad day for anime if the English dubbed is not around anymore, my heart aches just thinking about it. ~


Season 2 is not canon so it's not relevant to the story. The continuation is called Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus followed by Book of Murder and the movie called Book of Atlantic will adapt the next arc in the manga called Ship Voyage arc

I'd be fine with an original idea for the movie, but I'd ADORE it if they went for the Campania Arc! It's my 2nd favorite arc, and it's one of the best! To see it get animated would bring back some faith into the series. (Considering the first 2 seasons were disappointing...)

did some more research. turns out it won't be a season but a movie. this is not a too good idea since basically any anime movie that doesn't have miyazaki slapped on it doesn't do too well.

still it won't matter. can't wait to see lizzy in this one >:P


Just saying, that i love the animation under your comment. I know what it is but i dont remember the name!!

Yeah after all season 2 ruined the Black Butler anime imo but season 3 came and saved it.
It wasn't really much of a Season 3, it was just more directly to anime manga adaptations. That's why it wasn't titled like, "Kuroshitsuji 3," and it was just individual 'Book Of...' episode listings.

You're better off with the manga, honestly. Anime timeline is a complete mess.

This. The first season is drenched with filler and the Curry Contest Arc was completely rushed and had so many alterations in order to fit in with the story of Season 1. Because of this, Book of Circus and Book of Murder don't really stand on their own in anime form.

Seriously, I don't understand why A-1 Pictures can't just reboot the whole damn thing like Bones did with FMA. They'd make more money that way.


I agree. I want this film to remake the first few arcs up until the curry arc, since they're so short. I'll try not to keep my hopes up, but who wants this film to be a remake?
