I've been reading The Count of Monte Cristo recently, and I'm really enjoying it so far. (Kinda ashamed it took me this long to finally get around to reading it, but whatever.) Then I recently found out there's an anime based on it called Gankutsuou, which follows the same basic plot, but set around the year 5000. ...with robots.
So, has anyone watched it? It seems to have potential, but it also seems like it could be hilariously awful. So how is it? Is it actually good? So bad it's good? Just downright bad? I'm loving the book, so I'm at least interested in the series.
