Today for Hipster Anime, our hosts talk about the Japanese animated adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo, chosen by Sam. Also known as Gankutsuou, this classic tale has been given a new look in the adaptation via its unique and beautiful art. We discuss its reminiscence to other classic adaptations, and take a look at its soundtrack, by Jean-Jaques Burnel, which blends anime and Western classical motifs.
