Along with King of Bandit Jing OVA (nothing special from this anime other than that Jing was a cutie), I just finished Le Portrait de Petite Cossette. Cossette is a real interesting three episodes anime.
Basic plot line is that Kurahashi Eiri finds this Venetian wine glass which holds the soul of a murdered little beauty named Cossette d’Auvergne. Eiri talks to Cossette through the glass, and he discovers Cossette’s history and is soon helping her avenge her killer in a way.
The animation is nicely drawn and displayed. For some reason or another, the style reminded me of Gankutsuou. The storyline, artworks, and the music all reminds me of Gothic-ness. Jen, I think you would like this. I kept thinking of you when I watched this.
What I liked the best about this anime was the music. The music was by Kajiura Yuki, the same person who did the dot Hack series’ music. I so want the soundtrack now. Some of the songs had this similar feel and texture of the Baroque period. Then again, a lot of gothic type entertainment seems to do use Baroque music.
Now that I’ve seen those two animes, now I gotta get my arse to watch the followings:
– Future Boy Conan (26 eps)
– Gankutsuou (24 eps)
– Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne (44 eps)
– Kyou Kara Maou (70+ eps)
– Last Exile (26 eps)
– Meine Liebe (13 eps)
– Meine Liebe Wieder (13 eps)
– Mirage of Blaze + OVA (16 eps)
– Rose of Versailles (40 eps)
– Tactics (25 eps)
– Tsubasa Chronicles (26 eps)
– X TV (25 eps)
Gahhhhhh… Fun fun XD
