    very unique, i love it!
    the first thing i word comment about is the art style, very unique and original. Apparently this anime was adapted from the novel 'The Count of Monte Cristo' (btw which also has i think 2 film). The storyline of this anime was fantastic, though people commented that the pace was too fast (what do you expect they cant make it one episode per chapter) i think it was very well done. One of the main ...

    Beautiful anime with elegance and intelligence.
    This anime is a masterpiece. I have been though everything the count has. It was very personal and enlightening for me. It has so many lessons that I was not thought in life, and in a way it has completely changed my life.

  • Gankutsuo Review by RUA
    : Gankutsuou is the anime adaptation of the classic French novel “The Count De Monte Cristo”, but instead of being set in….old-a** Paris is actually the very distant future. With aliens. And robots. And a strange demon-thingy named Gankutsuo that never really gets explained in the show. All right, I gotta say, I was pretty torn about this show, because overall I felt like I really loved it, but ...

    The Manifestation of Revenge
    This is not just an animation. This is a playful, indulging, and tasteful motion-painting embedded with scores of tantalizing rage. It is a real feast for the eyes as the eyes, reluctant to look away, struggle to capture the layers of intense beauty. A beauty that cannot be put into words pours like a weaping waterfall out of this canvas. As the eyes struggle to aprehend the melodious madness ...

    A feast for the senses
    This is the best anime I have ever seen. I feel that Cowboy Bebop was the best anime of the last decade, it held the #1 spot on my list of all-time favorites for several years, but Gankutsuou has since toppled it for me by a landslide, even forcing the delights of Hayao Miyazaki's sparkling workshop down to the middle of my list. There is no precedent for Gankutsuou in anime when it comes to the ...

    Perfection: the series
    Gankutsuou is the anime adaptation of the novel "the count of monte cristo" by Alexander Dumas (i think thats how you spell his name)

    plot 5/5
    lets start off with the premise, those of you who've read TCOMC know what it's about, sort of. Instead of following the Count, it actually follows Albert. Anyway, it follows Albert De Morcerf, who forms a friendship with the mysterious count of monte ...

    Don't Wait Until It's Cold
    The Count of Monte Cristo, one of my favorite books next to Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Idiot or Crime and Punishment, is adapted yet again into something for the screen. I've watched the 1932 version directed by Rowland V. Lee, I've watched the 2002 version directed by Kevin Reynolds. This unique adaptation, taking extensive liberties as setting in the far future, and focusing on Albert instead of ...
