I’ve only ever seen the movie adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo. If this anime is half as good as the movie, which I enjoyed, I’d probably love it 🙂
The anime is very different (definitely darker) from the movie, but it is still excellent. I bet you would enjoy it 🙂
If I ever finish the book, I may rewatch this series so I know what I’m supposed to be seeing. I really liked it for the most part, but it seemed very self-conscious as an adaptation – this may be a weird comparison, but if you somehow managed to read Killer Angels without knowing how the Battle of Gettysburg went, there would be some confusion, and that’s about how I felt. The main plot points were clear, though.
What do you mean you haven’t finished the book, Jon? You’ve actually shocked me :P.
I liked this adaptation, but yeah, I would have been quite confused at some points if I wasn’t familiar with the original story.
