So, just finished Gankutsuou.
Was absolutely amazing. It really has some amazing directing. The way they did Franz's near-death with the cut to Albert just sleeping was absolutely phenomenal. As well as the flashback scene with Albert, Fernand, and Mercédès on the beach, with the hopeful letter written right before the tragedy began.
What do you guys think of it? I don't really see it discussed on /a/ ever.
Also, Peppo is the most glorious trap out of any anime I have ever seen. I don't even give a fuck if she has a dick, I'd fuck her.
At first, I really thought Peppo was a chick. I have mixed feelings for herhim.
I really enjoyed Gankutsuou. The music was inspiring and the visuals were unique. The story was mesmerizing and you really felt what most of the characters were going through.
Shit just realized I put Albert where I was supposed to put Edmond.
>what are spoilers
Fuck you cunt, its still in my backlog.
I'll rekt you.
I was pleasantly surprised as to who voiced her.
I was quite shocked.
It hardly even spoils anything (if you haven't started), and I don't know why you would be reading the post considering the opening line is 'So, just finished Gankutsuou".
>Complaining about spoilers for a 150 year old story
So does Frankenstein's monster.
Sherlock Holmes survived the fall from Reichenbach Falls, because lolretcon.
Spoiler tags are very rarely used on /a/ for their intended purpose, just like the quote function which you should know all about. Also, Reiner is the armored titan.
Man gankutsuou was from like 2004-5 I think? Its been almost 10 years now jesus christ
Yeah. The still makes it look decent, but the CGI looks incredibly dated.
shirou is the red man
it was all a dream
i used to read word up magazine
Gankutsuo is a VERY bad adaptation of the original classic novel by Alexandre Dumas!
The dialogue is cringeworthy and unfaithful to the original work (play on words and some of the count's famous lines were lost in translation) all the characters ( WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FRENCH) have sensibilities of japanese people and the music was totally uninspiring and boring!
The writing felt emotionally uncovincing due to the poor Jap-French-English translations and the characters like Edmond's sidekick Bertucio were given stoic and flat personalities compared to their cheerful and amusing novel counterparts....
For those who read the novel, Id highly recommend the 1999 adaptation starring Gerard Depardieu as the count..,
Go strike some more.
*instead of the anime which tried to turn Dumas's masterpiece into a grimdark borefest.
Comparing the two is retarded. It isn't supposed to be an exact adaption. If you look at Gankutsuou from a singular perspective it is amazing, but if you compare it to the original it is only natural it will feel off.

Except, the original anime trailer was nearly 100% faithful to the novel, down to the two lesbians. Whatever changes they made was applied after the fact, they definitely had the original in mind when the project started.
Mecha happened and it turned to shit.
>implying Dracula didn't fake his death and end up working for the Hellsing family
I'd say this version is superior to both ALL other adaptations AND the novel itself. I've read it cover to cover twice and goddamn, the fact that Dumas was getting paid by the whatever shows.

What they did is called re-imagination and not adaptation, mate. But nice try anyway.
It was Gonzo, what did you expect?
