$ dpkg -l | grep plymou
ii  libplymouth4:amd64                    0.9.2-4

amd64        boot animation, logger and I/O multiplexer - X11 renderer

works great - no issues

AFAIR there was a problem when systemd does not complete/close the target.

I use 

ii  sysv-rc                               2.88dsf-59.9                               
all          System-V-like runlevel change mechanism
ii  sysvinit-core                         2.88dsf-59.9                               
amd64        System-V-like init utilities
ii  sysvinit-utils                        2.88dsf-59.9                               
amd64        System-V-like utilities

hope this helps
