viscount albert de morcerf

To my dearest Albert. Happy Birthday. By the time you read this, chances are that I’ll no longer be with you. So instead of giving you a present, I’d like you to hear me out. Albert, this is important. I don’t want you to ever hate anyone. Something occured to me. Feelings of love and feelings of hate both start out as caring about someone. It’s sad, but I think that sometimes, when those feelings aren’t returned, those feelings of love change into hate. If something like that ever happens, I want you to think back to our childhood. Back to a time when we could only love openly and honestly, no matter how often we got hurt. I want you to go on living, Albert. Love people openly without being scared of getting hurt. I truly was lucky to have known you. Franz d'Epinay. Forever in your heart.

Franz d'Epinay.
Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo
((Based on Le Comte de Monte-Cristo by Alexandre Dumas))

The letter Franz wrote to Albert before dueling the Count. Only revealed in Episode 20.

Getting Back to the World of Anime

After nearly 8 months of no anime connect I’m heading back into the world of japanese cartoon. Having Netflix I started to watch a anime series called Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo, so far the show is pretty damn good.

I love the use of design instead of using color and shadow in the anime they use the texture pattern through out the whole thing, everything has pattern in it but the skin color…its mind blowing.

The music used in the anime is very well define and fit each scene to a fold. 

The storyline itself is one I can’t pull myself away from.(even if I have only reach episode 4)

The characters…they confuse me…as a yaoi fan girl I have trouble keeping pairing out of a show but  Viscount Albert de Morcerf has these moments of pure yaoiness, each one involving the Count.

I will coutinue to watch it in hope it gets better
