I fucking shat bricks. He looked like he was genuinely having second thoughts here for a while. Maybe he was, but man, when he crushed them like card crusher and started laughing like a maniac, and I couldn't help but laugh along with him.
Such a shame that the show went to shit shortly after this, but awesome climax is awesome.
gankutsuou was shit
Go read the book. Get some culture.
oh god, the duel scene made me shit bricks
I did read the book, and always felt that the anime did a better job at the end by having the Count completely break Albert. In the novel, Albert manned up after the betrayal and almost shrugged it off as nothing.
Also there wasn't a tragic death for Franz in the book, which I thought was important in tearing everything away from Albert. Oh, and Eugenie didn't get raeped, even if she was a lesbian.
Movie sucked. Book was so much better.
That's because Albert is only a side character in the book.
You are shit.
I like both.
Defining part of the series was that everything was about Albert and the Count. Everything was a contest between the Count's vengeance and Albert's innocence.
Albert's innocence won out at the end and the Count fell completely for him, failing even as he won.
yeah that's true. But having the Count be absolutely remorseless in his vengeance was what made the ending of the anime that appealing to me.
And the book was about Hubris and Hate. Gentlemen, I like hate.
The thing is, that was the secondary point of the anime. Everyone else besides Albert is an example of that. Franz and Eugenie suffer because of the hubris of their parents and the hatred the Count returns to them.
