Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic is a Spring 2017 movie[in Japan]

  • Not sure if this is the correct forum for this [and given how complicated FUNimation's relationship with Aniplex is these days, no guarantee of FUNimation acquiring it]

    Comes out Spring 2017

  • This is what I've been waiting for years for.

    (Also, even if Aniplex takes it, they need to get FUNi to dub it with the same cast, because yes.)

  • I have been thinking about getting into this show.

  • You should, you definitely should. It's a lot more than it looks like, actually. You might want to watch just episodes 1-6 of the original anime, and then ship to Book of Circus. (If you want the plot in-between, get manga vol.s 4 and 5, the anime version for that part isn't great).

    Book of Circus covers vol. 6-8, Book of Murder covers the next 3, this movie is the next arc after that. If you don't want to wait, go ahead and read the manga - up to 21 are out in English, and it's really good. It goes places you don't expect it to.

    …the latest volume actually had a bit in the authors' notes where the mangaka's assitant asked her, "When's the last time we were drawing fancy tea sets and chandeliers?" and she didn't know what to say. ^_^;
