Okay, before you guys say "What? There's a "Count of Monte Cristo" anime?" "I will say "Yes." It is quite a bit different from the other versions. For example:

1) It's sci-fi in this version, set about 2000-4000 years in the future

2) Instead of sword fights, there are armor fights

I will say this though: this anime is one of the best animations that Studio GONZO has ever come out with, and of the best that Geneon/Funimation has licensed here in the US.

I forgot to mention that this series has an ass kicking end theme song. The song is called "You Won't See Me Coming" and its by Jean-Jacques Burnel
