So tonight I'll sing, a song for all my friends, also to those we won't be seeing again.

That no one will see him coming
until he strikes
That scene where the Count
is first seeing sobbing and then laughing like the madman he is, is one of my favourite scenes in any anime and any medium period.

You'd be surprised. It's different enough to feel interesting and the changes and artistic liberties are well done.
Side plots are obviously cut considerably and some things concerning them were changed.
I read the novel first and I thought the anime was a pretty fresh take on it, but it's definitely a reimagining of the story not a direct adaption. I still recommend watching it.
The best twist for me was the portrayal of revenge physically manifested in dantes.
Everything up until the last 2 episodes is great, then it goes and shits all over the ending. I'd still recommend giving it a go though. As long as you see it as a reimagining and not an adaption you won't get too mad.
I'm glad /a/ still likes this show.
I watched it for the first time awhile ago and it was really great. When I first saw the count I thought the perfect voice actor for him would've been Joji Nakata and the anime totally delivered.
