First off, I have limited internet access right now. I’m taking advantage of the current moment to post something, but until I have full on access again, my posting is limited. What’s going on is a variety of things, mainly I had a mental breakdown and found out my meds aren’t working.
Admittly, when I picked up Gankutsuou, I was not familiar with the original Count of Monte Cristo material. I was watching is because my sister wanted to watch it, as she had read the book, and when I had questions, I usually fielded them to her. However, I finally got to see The Count of Monte Cristo movie (color version) that I realized what a magnificent piece of work the anime was. Not only is The Count of Monte Cristo a fascinating story but Gonzo shows how to successfully do an Alternate Universe, not only doing an Alternate Universe in way one but multiple ways.
