Our favorite demon butler, Sebastian Michaelis, is back for another thriller adventure film with Ciel Phantomhive. Kuroshitsuji: Book of the Atlantic / Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic is set to screen in theaters on January 21, 2017.
Aniplex released the first trailer for the said film featuring Kuroshitsuji manga creator Yana Toboso?s first visuals. The animation art is still in dark-eerie pantone but with very vibrant character design – as expected from the Chief Animation Director Minako Shiba, who is also in charge of the film?s character design.
This is Minako Shiba?s illustration teaser:
Here is Kuroshitsuji: Book of the Atlantic / Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic trailer:
Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic will follow the manga?s sixth arc, Luxury Liner, which are the 11th – 14th volume of Kuroshitsuji Manga.
The story is set in April 1889, when Ciel Phantomhive, along with his servants, Sebastian and Snake, board a luxury ship called Campania to investigate an illegal human experimentation.
