The animation is pretty great and the character development is excellent too.
Those who enjoy series similiar to Monster will like this. I highly recommend it.
I took your advice and i'm around ep. 21 of Gankutsuou
This is really good stuff. Great, very interesting animation, story rocks and the characters are absolutely brilliant, especially the Count.
There are some trully magnificent pieces of character work, the kind that you could only find in top tier movies outside of Japan, but i won't mention any so i don't spoil stuff.
Also, killer opening theme...

Don't read the manga - gasp - so had no idea where the plot was going and that moment a couple of weeks ago when a certain someone i (and i think most people) generaly find awesome showed up out of nowhere was a legit mark out moment for me
