At the Queen's behest, young master Ciel Phantomhive hosts a lavish banquet to be attended by the crème-de-la-crème of London's elite. What begins as a fabulous affair quickly takes a dark turn when guests begin turning up dead! Murder takes center stage in this chilling OVA collection where even a debonair demon butler isn't safe from a killer on the prowl. Should Sebastian and Ciel wish to once more see the light of day, they must join forces with their guests, including the legendary author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to unravel the mystery – and apprehend the murderer before it's too late!
I would give this a perfect score if it wasn’t that I expected almost every outcome in the end. I believe that the creator wanted us to know what was going to happen, but it would have been way better if they somehow made the reader/viewer clueless to anything.
In this story a mystery unravels, as guests of Phantomhive are murdered under suspicious circumstances. We follow the remaining guests and Ciel in their attempt to clear the case and remain alive. There are, of course, some interesting aspects and a plot twist, but it is quite bland compared to the rest of Kuroshitsuji.Overall, I'd give the plot a 7 if it were standalone; in this case though, it deserves a 5 since the main "ingredient" is obvious if you have watched the series. Animation and sound are more than satisfactory, same as all Kuroshitsuji. Book of Murder is more focused on the storyline than the characters, so there's hardly any character development, but everyone fits to their role and has a part to play.
