Default Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo

This anime is based loosely from Alexandre Dumas book The Count of Monte Cristo. It's placed in an alternate future and one major element of note is the design is visually arresting. This telling major change is that it's from Vicomte Albert de Morcerf's point of view rather than Le Comte de Monte-Cristo. Rather than be in on the path to vengence you are in a real mystery as to where the Count will go. The clothing will either distract you or put you in awe as to how much detail the designers of the show went. Personally I'd like to see this show on . Currently available as a boxed set on DVD for a steal from Funimation/Geneon compared to when it came out before Geneon went out of production in the states.

This is probably one of my favorite tv-series anime's, up there with Noein, and Samurai 7.

BTW we talk alot about anime on this forum, never seen you post.
