Otaku Corner: A movie night

Minna-san konbanwa! Welcome back to another corner of Otaku Corner! In this corner, we will be taking a look into a two-part Kuroshitsuji movie! It is called the book of murders. These two movies were set after the Book of Murder series

The start of the series showed the Phantomhive house hosting a lavish party upon the behest of her majesty, the Queen of England. Many influential and the finest members of the society were invited to attend this high-class party at the Phantomhive manor. Among the guests invited was also a struggling author.

Now for the fun bit, at the peak of the story came the usual serial killing in the manor that remained a mystery among the guests. Interesting enough? No, as the members of the Phantomhive household, it is an utmost important to serve the guess well and to be able to tend to their needs and wants. Or so to the members of the audience, the entertainment factor is something that should not be neglected.

Packed with the amusement within the series, I find it intriguing to watch how each invited guests reacted throughout the series. To me, it provides a glimpse of how the society was back in the olden days. What amuzed me the most was how  Ciel and Sebastian spoke in French when speaking ill of one of the guests which was funny to watch. I guess that is what some of us do from time to time if we have something to rant or complain.

Another thing to find it shocking were the deaths of the guests that begin to arise within the mansion. In a condition such as that, the viewers will be perplexed about how each of the victims were killed. Among those deaths was also one that was really unexpected (not to mention fishy). Who? Only time will tell.

Overall, the first part of this arc was really amuzing. The story was not rushed and the development was really interesting to watch. Part 1 revealed the conflicts of the story and Part 2 reveals the truth of it all. (So on to the next part of the review)


Kuroshitsuji: The Book of Murder (Part 2)
黒執事・殺人の書, Kuro Shitsuji: Satsujin no Sho (2)

Genre: Action, Mystery, Supernatural

Producers: Animation Production: A-1 Pictures Inc. (An adaption from the fifth arc of the original manga: The Phantomhive Manor Murders)

Air Date: November 15, 2014

Status: Finished airing

Part 2 continued with a round of solve the mystery or play the detective in solving the case. This time our author stepped up his game and took the lead in getting to the bottom of the mystery. With a new character or an unexpected visitor in their midst, how would he flare? That would be the interesting part to watch.

Although, Part 2 would be the revelation of the truth, the pace of the story was also not rushed. The animation took its time to slowly reveal what was going on behind the scenes of these mysterious deaths. Or so was it?

The ending was a mind-blower and that is all I can say. I do not want to give out too many details to spoil the fun but all I can say is that you will be surprised to learn the truth. All in all, the only hint that I can give would be the Phantomhives and leave the rest to our purrfect butler to reveal them all.

That is all for now. Adios~Ja ne minna
