Kuroshitsuji: Book of the Atlantic is a Kuroshitsuji (黒執事, Black Butler) theatrical anime film. It was released on January 21, 2017 in Japanese theaters.[1] The film adapts the sixth arc, Luxury Liner, of the Kuroshitsuji manga—said arc comprises the 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th volumes of the source material.


In October 2015, the official Twitter account for the Kuroshitsuji anime franchise announced that an anime film has been formally approved. Additionally, Square Enix opened a website for the film.[2]

In February 2016, the official website for the anime film disclosed that the film is titled, "Kuroshitsuji: Book of the Atlantic," and that it will adapt the sixth arc of the manga.[3] Moreover, Yana Toboso's visual for the film was released. From March 26 to March 27, Aniplex promoted the film at AnimeJapan 2016 and sold limited-edition advance tickets to the movie screening.[4]


In April 1889, Earl Ciel Phantomhive and his servants, Sebastian Michaelis and Snake, board the luxury passenger ship Campania alongside the Midford family—not for recreational purposes, however, but for investigating illegal human experimentation, which is later demonstrated at an Aurora Society meeting headed by a questionable doctor. Deceased individuals are coming back to life, but they have changed into something other than human. What is reviving the dead—a breakthrough in medicine or an unforeseen force?
