...By the novel I guess you mean the real "Count of Monte Cristo," which is apparently amazing (I have a friend who's sworn by it for years), so reading that original that should be a fun "completing" experience...
Yep. I meant that. Actually I read the book many, many years ago and I've seen many of the movies based on it. Unfortunately, my brain has mixed both, so sometimes I cannot tell what's from the book or the films! (like the (blood?) relationship between the Count and Albert) What I *really* remember is the scape from that hellish prison, I was looking forward to watch that part animated and see certain character, but the anime changes that to something... supernatural (not that this is a bad thing)
I'm scouring now an unabridged version of the novel in English (I need to practice my English) but unfortunately is *really* difficult to get books in English where I live (and also books are quite expensive in general- Toxico can confirm this) but maybe I'll be lucky enough to get a version soon.
PS: The things about colours is not "pokemon-like" at all, but it is certain that many people find it unsettling.
In the US there was this horrible horrible remake of the novel on film a couple years back. It destroyed the original plot, and i don't even know why it was called count of monte christo... Complete and utter crap
