The art is beautiful, but I guess I have to get used to it...

Albert is so painful to watch. I don't know, it just is.

Damn that art is so trippy and surreal, Albert's coat is like mesmerizing. That trial was nuts, there was a sinking feeling of injustice when I figured out that the card chosen was for that proud serial killer.

I see younger Fukuyama and Hirakawa are voicing Albert and Franz, no wonder I enjoy hearing their voices so quickly. Interesting so far, definitely drawn in.

To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic." - Ezio Auditore, Assassin's Creed Revelations.

Honestly, if anybody here likes this anime and hasn't read the book, you should try reading it. You'll be surprised just how much of the source material they used for this anime. I have only seen two episodes and am impressed at how faithful the adaptation is so far. Admittedly, though, they definitely added a lot of "anime flair" and Japanese perversion that wasn't in the book.

The first time I watched this, this episode didn't impress me as much as watching it this time. Knowing where its going helps my appreciation for this episode's introductions and setup.

I don't follow the threads I post in. PM me if you want my attention.

Talk about manipulating people!
The Count is just something else. Interesting development at the end. Albert looks to be in a tough spot.
A very strong first episode.
