Anime Evo:

For lovers of gothic anime, Le Portrait de Petit Cossette/Cosette no Shozou fits in the genre so perfectly its not even funny. Complete with torture, blood baths (literally), murder, sacrifice, and one of the darkest love stories I may have ever come across, this film (released as 3 OVA’s in Japan, but compounded into a movie in the US) is not for the weak of heart. But La Portrait de Petit Cossette has more to offer than an overdose of gothic romance. Yuki Kajiura, one of my favorite composers who was responsible for such brilliant soundtracks as Noir, Madlax, and .Hack, provides the film with beautifully haunting music (think violins, harps, and ghostly soprano singing) that completes the atmosphere and puts the viewer into that melancholic state necessary to truly appreciate this work of art.
