The first time I watched this short OVA, I did not give it enough credit and dismissed it as merely interesting. I rewatched it recently and realized how great the series actually is. Perhaps my tastes are changing… or getting more extreme…
Anyway, I thought Le Portrait de Petit Cossette is rather aethsthetic and moody, characteristics that quite suit my tastes. There is a very nice balance of gothic beauty and haunting horror. The series takes the genre gothic lolita to its core beyond just having cute Victorian style dresses on little girls. Further, falling in love with someone you shouldn’t have is usually my favorite kind of romance… so yea.
