Didi you know that Kuroshitsuji is coming back? Season 3 was announced just a couple of weeks ago! Well, it seems like the producers are not going to let the fans down for even a new OVA is also in the making. The project will cover the Phantomhive Manor Murder Case Arc and will get theatrical release.
Kuroshitsuji: Book of Murder focuses on the events that happened during a hastily organised party at the Phantomhive manor. While it does fall under the typical Agatha Christie plot of having a murder mystery party, there are many twists to the story with Sebastian’s demonic abilities and what a certain guest understood of it all.
This news comes as yet another bow from the industry to the Kuroshitsuji fanatics after it was announced that the anime series will be reloaded with an adaptation of Noah’s Ark Circus Arc from the original manga by Yana Toboso (airing in June).
On another note, the production has passed into a “Book of”-type of entitling (Book of Circus TV anime series and Book of Murder OVA), which might mean a couple of things: 1. the production team are huge Avatar the Last Airbender fans or 2. They plan on distinguishing each arc by books, so that the original Kuroshitsuji season 2 isn’t related that much to them.

So… What do you think? Oh, by the way, there is a video for the OVA, but its viewing is limited by country.
