This unique adaptation of the legendary novel by Alexandre Dumas is an intense dramatic and visual experience, featuring direction by Mahiro Maeda (The Animatrix, Blue Submarine N.6), costumes by world-renowned Anna Sui, music by Jean-Jacques Burnel (The Stranglers).
I'M A HUGE ANIME FAN-however- this anime is one of the best I have ever viewed.
One thing I like (which is a problem in some titles) is that the story never feels rushed, it really works well and ends smoothly.

First, let me say that the unusual style of the series is at first a little off-putting. Once you fall into the story, however, you don't notice that style as much, and that's... Read morePublished on June 4, 2007 by DigiMaeve
This has to be the most original, non genre specific anime to date.
Although I wouldn't consider this the best anime of all time, it's certainly in my top 10 list, and... Read more

Well, as you may know by now, Geneon is no longer in the DVD business. That would make this series out of print and soon to be very hard to find as far as a region 1 US release. It would also mean a big NO on a complete collection box set or thinpack release.
