Yes and no. While GONZO kept things faithful for the most part in Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo, it was still somewhat different from the original story. The same will happen to this series as well. If anything, I want the ending to be the same as the original play. It would really ruin the series if it didn't end the same way. The only question is, how will they do it in a way that still moves us? That will be one of GONZO's challenges.

That doesn't mean that Romeo x Juliet will be bad. Gankutsuou was praised as one of the finest series out there, but we'll see if GONZO can pull it off.

I'll still hold some hope. And I just remembered I wanted to take a look at Gankutsuo. The art of that series is very different from alot of what I've seen in anime. It's beautiful.

It's anime, of course not. Expect a few through backs to the original story and the usage of the original names.

Fact: I have access to the first couple episodes of this alleged train-wreck.

Proposition: I can give it my litmus test and report back to y'all.

Question: Should I... should I risk imploding from its mediocrity? IS anybody interested in a lil' review of the first couple episodes?

...so go for it! Big Grin

Heck if I had "access" I'd watch them just so I could place bets on when the first robot would show.

Haha, right on.

Just need to russle me up some elusive codecs, and then I'll report back.
