Kuroshitsuji has been a long time favourite anime and manga series written by Japanese author Toboso Yana (枢 やな). It is an anime with extremely detailed and beautiful illustrations set in Victorian England; about a devilishly handsome butler and a young earl solving mysteries. Having aired Season 1, Season 2, Book of Murder and Book of Circus, I am pleased to tell every Kuroshitsuji fan out there that the new movie Book of the Atlantic was aired in theaters (Japan Nationwide) a few weeks ago on the 21st January 2017! Of course, I had to watch it! And even though there were no English subtitles whatsoever, i have to say that I’m proud that I understood the movie. The movie – as with the anime series, displayed beautiful graphics illustrations, exciting fighting scenes (more than the anime TV series), and revealed some surprising facts you did not know before about the characters
*Liz . It was thoroughly enjoyable!
Watching the movie in Japan theatres gave me an extra edge as the company Square Enix gave out limited weekly gifts on weeks 1, 2 and 3 to those who purchased the film ticket. Week 1 gave out autographed posters (what I got), week 2 gave out fan art drawings and week 3 (this week) will be giving out coasters. Certain theatres also had shop booths dedicated solely to Kuroshitsuji and sold many merchandises such as mugs, socks, towels, tote bags, files, figures and many more (many of which sold out really quickly after the date of airing). Even though they were all really quite expensive, i can’t NOT spend a single dime on anything – and so just after the movie aired, I went on a splurge and bought many goods including a mug, several files, a mini towel and a Sebastian plush which I got from the UFO catcher in game arcades. I know this was impulsive and excessive of me, but if this is what it takes to support this series, then
I will lick the grounds for it will gladly pay so.
So if you are in Japan right now, be sure to watch the movie in theatres! And to people overseas, be patient xD I’m sure it will get subbed soon. And be sure to continue supporting the anime/manga series and thank the wonderful voice actors Daisuke Ono, Junichi Suwabe, Sakamoto Maya etc for making the characters as lovable as they are~
