Anime for patricians.

Best adaptation of the book.
>>
>>150657731
Nice as its own thing, though I prefer the book's end and handling of the Count by far. Should have kept the lesbians in, instead of turning it completely into a sausage bonanza. Lovely character designs. Haydee is <3.
>>
>>150657908
Who were the lesbians?

>>150657966
It's a minor side plot with Eugenie and her female piano teacher, with whom she eventually elopes. There even was a scene in an early trailer, that hinted at that plot thread, but evidently it didn't make it into the final series. Kinda funny that they threw out a canon gay couple to have more screetime for homoerotic bait with Albert.

Is Romeo x Juliet anywhere as good as this?
>>
Unlike Youasa's works, gankatsuo is a prime example where people mistake mediocre story and characters for quality fiction because of unorthodox visuals.

>>150657731
Albert is a fucking faggot. Franz is a best boy. Cavalcanti is a fag, but did 10/10 revenge, and i actually like him.
>>
>>150658378
No, Romeo x Juliet is completely different premise and atmosphere than Gankutsuo. Still good for it's own series though nothing like the levels of Gank
>>
>>150657731
It's amazing. I cried when Franz died .

>>150658679
The similarity between the book and the anime are superficial.
>>
>>150657731
That and Vandread are the only anime that i like to ever come from Gonzo
>>
>>150659225
I see that the director of Gankutsuou also directed Final Fantasy Unlimited, can it really be as bad as they say?
>>
>>150659328
let me put it this way, they couldn't make popular an anime about Final Fantasy, how much more can you fail?
>>
>>150659225
They did NHK and seto no hanayome.

Well they couldn't make a popular FF movie either, and Unlimited at least didn't bankrupt Square.

oh, sorry, forgot about that

i did't liked it that much

NHK, Last Exile, FMP, Speed Grapher.
>>
>>150657731
It was a well stylized adaptation, but has the problem most of the adaptations have by sticking only to one half of the story. One of two(?) Gonzo shows that's actually good.
>>
>>150660236
damn, i have shit memory
>>
>>150657731
It was good, but not "that" good. They made some good changes, especially with Eugenie (in the original she's a feminist lesbian) and the way they portrayed Fernand. But a lot of other stuff was just trivialized.

Villefort was stereotypical as fuck, Maximillien lost all of his importance for Edmond, Benedetto was an obnoxious asshole, and so on.

I still prefer the Book. Though I might understand why not many people would want to read more than 1200 pages.
>>
>>150660236
Last Exile wasn't good.

I feel blessed that I watched it as late as I did, since it meant I could picture Albert and Franz as Quenther and Hevia.
It made the ending the best thing ever, as Quenther fucking Barbotaged his heart

I reread the book recently, still great. While the twist they put on the count was interesting, it changes the whole point of the story.

I liked his pirate suit that you knew was a pirate suit because it said "PIRATE" all over it.

wrong story at the wrong time.
Had they just released the FF7 movie then things would had turned out differently.
>>
>>150657731
A complete bastardization. Forced non-canon romance between Albert and Eugenie was trash.
>>
>>150668082
Only his dick sucked?
>>
Mediocre writing, dialogue, and characterization. Okay, but nothing memorable. The unique color style thing hides also mediocre animation.

Subtly implying that he can pick locks due to being a thief while making it sound like he(she's) flirting with him.

Come on anon are you that socially inept?

Drawer is a metaphor for pants.
Just a little bit before SHE implyed she fucked his dad.

Shit man I bought these DVDs as they were coming out. Still a great series. I don't think I have fansubs around anymore either so Im glad I at least have the DVDs to rewatch.

Happy Birthday, Albert

>SHE implyed she fucked his dad.
When did that happen?
>>
>>150657731

The original story of the Count of Monte Cristo was 100x better.
This shit was hard to watch.
>>
>>150672838
She says to Albert that he can't fire her because she's in REALLY good terms with his dad, he being the dense moron he is asks what did she mean by that, so she answers that even his dad is a man after all and licks her lips lewdly.

Please. She obviously means she so constantly seduces people she often ends up hiding inside drawers as their actual lovers unexpectedly arrive.
>>
>>150657731
Utter trash for plebs who never read the book. They could have even saved it by having Albert and Franz end up together, but instead they shoehorned in an awful romance with that cunt Eugenie.
