Reviews

   

Whether the anime will eventually become a classic in the same vein as the book remains to be seen, but it's definitely a worthy candidate for the spot. - ThemAnime

    

Apart from its trivial setbacks, this is truly one series that should not be missed. This may be one of the best adaptations from a classic novel to an anime, and I certainly hope we can see more series just as charming and riveting as Gankutsuou in the future. - Nihon Review
