  • Excellent. Book of Circus has been pretty good so far, definitely looking forward to the Book of Murder OVAs.

  • When will the Book of Murder part 1 be available to watch online?

    It was supposed to be!! But for some reason it's not up.



  • does anybody know how to get this? I want to watch it and/or buy it but they're only showing the old episodes of season 1 & 2. I so want to see this, one way or another



  • As far as I know, we have not announced a streaming date for Book of Murder– keep an eye on our News Blog and the Schedules page for more information.

    @elaine - Are you unable to view Book of Circus? We should have all three seasons available subtitled.

  • I have read the Kuroshitsuji manga online and loved this arc. I can't wait to see it in action, but will only a 2 part OVA be long enough?
