“It’s necessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.” 

The Count: "To be honest, I, too, once had feelings for a certain woman. As well as dreams of a future with this woman. However… all of them ended as nothing more than dreams. In short, those dreams were only dreams. And in those dreams’ stead stands the man that I have become."

Day 1: Favorite Anime- Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo
An anime adaption of my favorite book, it was bound to do well! The ultimate story of revenge, lost love, and coming of age. Watching the Count’s plan begin right from the very beginning is absolutely spellbinding. The Count is one of the most charming characters of all time and if you hadn’t read the novel you might actually assume him to be a well-meaning eccentric noble man. You want him to succeed all while he is destroying the lives of so many people (you really do feel conflicted sometimes). This is an under watched masterpiece so if you haven’t seen it- GO NOW! :)
You won’t regret it.
