Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic screening (Dubbed)

When Funimation announced special screenings of Book of the Atlantic, a Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) movie, I wasn't interested at first. A few weeks before the screening, I figured why not? 


We got tickets to see the dub as it was showing on my usual day off and got to the theater early so we could get good seats. There were cosplayers and fans of all ages, though most seemed to be teenage girls. 

The movie itself was pretty good. Undertaker has a pretty big role in it which is awesome as he's my favorite character, plus his face is shown a lot. Best scene by far is Grell and new reaper Ronald re-enact that one scene from Titanic. To be honest, this is pretty much what the movie is...
Black Butler + Titanic + Zombies = Book of the Atlantic. 
Only thing I wish I had done before watching this movie was to watch Book of Circus as there's a character or three from that arc. 


I think the most surprising part about it was Lizzy. I always thought she was annoying and couldn't do anything for herself, but her true character was revealed. She isn't as helpless as she lets on in the first season and ends up being a one of the best fighters in the whole series. 

*heart eyes*
I didn't really think anything of it before the movie, but...if their was any type of fanservice scenes or something slightly funny, the auditorium would be full of screams that only fangirls (and boys) could make. I'm pretty sure the people walking down the theater hall and in the auditoriums next door thought the viewers were either really scared or being killed. Unfortunately, due to the screams, we missed a good third of the movie's dialogue. 

The audience for Book of the Atlantic seemed more immature than the crowds who showed up for the Evangelion 3.0 movie, Yu-Gi-Oh Dark Side of Dimensions and DBZ Resurrection F showings COMBINED. 

It's okay to be a fangirl/boy, but when going to screenings like these, please be considerate of the movies showing next door and to the chaperones who have no idea what they are getting themselves into. It's alright to scream, but not so loud or long that the person 10 rows behind can't hear anything for the next 3 minutes.

I'd rewatch Book of the Atlantic, but in a quieter setting...and to see Undertaker's and Lizzy's amazing scenes again.

OMG HIS FACE! HE ACTUALLY HAS ONE!

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers



This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
