I hope this comes in my country's cinema. We've been getting a lot of Japanese titles this year, even animated ones. One Piece, Detective Conan and Kingsglaive:Final Fantasy XV. Then Your Name will be aired this December along with Your Lie in April live action. I'm hoping I can watch this in the big screen over here.

I agree! A fourth season would have been amazing.

YAY! As a fan of the Black Butler anime who's seen every existing episode, I can't wait for this and I definitely have to read the rest of the manga before this comes out.

Oh yes, finally. This arc was awesome! Hopefully this won't be disappointing, although I don't know why they decided to do a movie..? This would've been better in a 12-26 episode series....

OK NOW I'M HYPED! Btw how are they going to adapt everything in one movie...Wait it can be. If I remember corectly the arc has been set in like 2-3 days so they can make a long movie out of it. Hmmmm... hope they don't rush the hell out of it!
If the movie is gonna come out in the beginning og 2017 then we'll hopefully get it at the second half of it...Whyyyyyyy!!! I don't want that time to come! Then I'll be in last year of highschool Noooooooooooooooooooooo

a public school in the UK function the same way you'd say a private school works, as it is independent, exclusive, and expensive to go to. it's really just the term that is different and it can get confusing.
(I'm not british myself so don't directly quote me on all this or anything)


oh yeaah, i remember reading something like that by the comments on mangahere. thanks for that.

it's dubbed the Public School Arc by the wikia, that's why I referred to it by that name


that's strange. it's pretty clear that it's a private one.

yeah, i was thinking about that part. it can ruin the moment definitely. or in the very least not get the feeling it got in the manga.

oh yea and

this is one of my favorite arcs from the manga, I'm really excited! I hope they will animate the public school arc next.

though I imagine there are some scenes that might be better executed in a TV series, I'm looking forward to see how they will pull it off in a movie.

Manga is better.

First season was watchable as a standalone with an original ending, less said about season 2 the better. Now Book of Circus and Book of Murder are mostly fateful adaptations with some changes.
Good to know the anime and manga are pretty much similar in content, I will stick with the anime first, then read the manga from the beginning when it's about to end.

Also, as weird as this sounds, I actually enjoyed season 2. xD


I too enjoyed season 2. It's actually my favourite, with Book of Circus. I'm not sure why people dislike season 2.
I don't understand why they aren't making this into 12-25 episode tv series.

I hear that a lot. I am thinking of going with the anime first, then the manga, or is the opposite a better choice?

Aw yes! Will definitely have to find time to re-watch the entire series from the beginning. It was one of my favorite series taking place in a Victorian-era setting. Hopefully it's not rushed or anything though, always hate when something like that happens.
