Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well and I hope you all had a great 4th of July. I finally have another review to give you guys. In case I havent mentioned it before, I am a huge Black Butler fan; So when I heard that they were going to start releasing arcs in OVA and Movie form I was really excited. So the review I have for you guys today in none other than Black Butler: Book of Atlantic.
To start off, this movie is what you would get if the Titanic had not hit an iceberg and instead had a zombie outbreak. Ok now that I have given you a visual lets see where to begin, We do start off with Sebastian and Ciel on the ship where they are there to investigate the Aurora Society. We get some familiar faces from the first two movies which was fun to see. The movie really starts to pick up when we see Sebastian and Ciel go undercover as members of the Society and this leads to one of the greatest secret passwords ever, I wont spoil it you just have to see it.
Once they are inside of the society we see what will eventually turn into the main plot of this story and from here the movie moves at a pretty high speed, there is alot of slicing and blood and just trying to survive. I will say that this movie really gives us some great character development and If you dont follow the manga as I dont it will defiantly have you wanting to read it. We do get grell appearance and he is as awesome as every and we get some great moments from him. Dare I say the real stars of this movie are Elizabeth and Undertaker, We get to see that Elizabeth is truly a badass and we got to see that the undertaker is not what he appeared to be and I must say both caught me off guard especially Elizabeth.
I will defiantly say this is my favorite Movie next to Book of Circus, the plot is not strong but the character development more than makes up for that. If you are a Black Butler fan Then this is a must see I dont think you will be disappointed , If your someone who was just a casual Black Butler and have not seen the series in a while I feel pretty comfortable saying that You can watch this and not feel like you have missed anything. I would have to give this a 8/10, and It is dubbed so you should be able to find it on Funnimation.
Thank you all for reading and hope you enjoy!
