Director Mahiro Maeda, the creative force behind visual stunners like The Animatrix and Blue Submarine No. 6, puts a unique stamp on The Count of Monte Cristo in this vibrantly colored adaptation of the classic novel. Maeda's 24-part anime saga gives a futuristic twist to the timeless tale of revenge. Aristocratic Albert lives a luxurious but boring life in Paris. He leaves the city with his best friend Franz. The two journey to Luna, a city on the moon's surface and home to the wealthy Count of Monte Cristo. The Count charms Albert, who invites him to Paris. With Albert's help, the Count is soon part of the city's high society. It's then that the Count begins to unspool his calculated plan for revenge.
