Gankutsuou 1: The Count of Monte Cristo
"While vacationing on the moon, Albert, a young Parisian nobleman, meets the Count of Monte Cristo, a fabulously rich aristocrat from the far reaches of the galaxy. Fascinated by the count’s sophistication and intelligence, Albert is unaware of the older man’s dark purpose: to enact revenge for a terrible act of betrayal committed against him twenty-five years ago. Soon, all of Paris, including Albert’s own mother and father, will feel the terror of the count’s vengeance.
Based on the acclaimed anime, this science fiction version of Alexandre Dumas’s classic The Count of Monte Cristo is the story of a young man’s seduction by evil–and a grown man’s struggle with his past."
