FUNimation has announced their acquisition of another license rescue of a former Geneon Entertainment title with Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo. The series official site can be found here and the release will take place sometime in 2009.

Trying to escape his uneventful life, Albert, the son of a renowned general from Paris, makes a journey with his friend Franz. During his travels, he meets an immensely wealthy nobleman named The Count of Monte Cristo. Living in luxurious hotels, surrounded by beautiful women and strong bodyguards, the charming but enigmatic count fascinates Albert. Albert invites the count to join the high society of Paris. However, unknown to Albert, his father had once framed the count and took the Count's fiancee as his own.
