Black Butler: Book Of Murder Review

Hey guys! I am back this week with another review for you guys. For those of you who don't know i am a huge Black Butler fan (one of the few guys who like it lol). I'm one of the people who actually loved the second season of the original anime so i was excited when book of circus came out. Circus was amazing and really loved the new characters. When I heard book of murder was coming out I started the hype train right away. So did book of murder live up to the awesomeness that was book of circus?

First I must say i was a bit surprised when Book of Murder was a OVA and not a full season but making them a hour long was actually a good idea. Book of Murder is your basic dinner party murder mystery with a who done it scenario. You have you basic cast of characters here, including a few new ones,  and they all seemed to blend in very well that helped the story flow. Now I will say that while yes the episodes were a hour long I felt especially is episode two that a lot of the story was rushed and the shocking reveal kinda missed its mark. I felt that given that there were a few disposable characters in this show that they could have maybe kept the murder mystery going a little long instead of just quickly revealing the secret. I thought it was strange to that even though Snake was revealed to be the missing guest, but you never saw or at least i didn't any mysterious shadow lurking around.

While I did enjoy Book of Murder, I was also a little disappointed because the  story just seemed a little lackluster and episode 2 just felt rushed. All in all while i did enjoy Book of Murder it did not live up to the Hype of Book of circus. I just really felt like they could have used one more episode.

Sorry to all my fellow Black Butler fans hope yall arent to mad lol.

Thanks for reading



  1. You need to read the manga of the arc it's amazing and I'm so glad to hear they finally made it part of the anime. I believe Kuroshitsuji would be more popular if the anime had followed more of the manga; especially when it comes to the character of Elizabeth.

    1. I will give the arc a read for sure. And I agree, while i do love the non manga stuff it has been nice to see them add more arcs from the manga. Elizabeth is one of my favorites lol.
      Thanks for the comment!
