I am new to this and I has some stuff to put out! Yay.


I went to Versailles and bought Tome 1 for Rose de Versailles c: I can't read French well but I managed to understand most of it! So.. Now I'm here all interested in the series! I searched on youtube "la rose de versailles" just to see what would come up. I found a old 2007 trailer for a possible remake for the movie. I read comments on how it was just a panchiko commercial or something with that. I also read about being in pre-production to this day. I was really confused, so I ended up posting a BBS on Ikeda Riyoko's site in English. I received two replied in English from some fans..

My post:
日本語がよく話せません。Hello Mrs. Ikeda Riyoko. I am sorry that I could not write this in Japanese! I I recently traveled to France and visited Versailles. I brought a French version of "The Rose of Versailles" and I instantly fell in love with it. I found out about an animation movie that was mentioned around 2007. I would like to know if the movie will ever be released. I also wonder if "The Rose of Versailles" will be translated in English. It is a wonderful story! Oscar is an amazing character. I think many people would like this. Again, I am sorry that I could not write this in Japanese. Thank you!

I like ”The Rose of versailles" too.
I read it first at 12 years old.
When Oscar was dead,I was shocked and sadness.
I want to travel to Paris and Versaille someday.

Hello, Lyssa. I'm so happy to know there is an enthusiastic lover of "The Rose of Versailles" like you in another country on this earth. I'm a Japanese who has been a fan of this wonderful unique comic for more than 35 years.
I know there are still many fans here in Japan and understood your message, but very few of them can write a reply to you in English. 
I'm sorry to tell you, but the animation movie which had been mentioned around 2007 was cancelled as far as I know. Many Japanese fans are waiting for the chance to come up to the schedule again in near future.
I envy you so much, for you can read French. I have wanted to read the story in foreign languages for a long time, especially in English, which is the easiest for me. I heard that only two volumes of this long story was published in English many years ago and was out of production (not made for sale) now.
I hope to hear from you again. The character I like the best is Oscar, of course. She has been an indicator of my life.

So according to the second reply, the movie has been cancelled so far. I also hope the whole series will be licensed in English one day too. I'd like that.


My next and last deal of business is fanart! I was on here looking for good artwork. I tried to link to Kodemari's site on infoseek but it wasn't working. I searched for it and finally found it. http://moncoeur.quu.cc/home.index.html I absolutely love the artwork!!! That's all I have to say c:

Yes, it is very unfortunate about the movie. It would be great if it could be finished. I know I'd watch it. *_*

I, too, bought the manga in French to read. The manga is better than the anime in my opinion, but the anime is still pretty good, and some people did sub it in English at least, which is really nice. Sadly that's the best we have. :(

It would definately be tricky to put the whole series into a movie. They might have focused on the diamond necklace or the revolution, but it would be patently incomplete both ways.

I found the manga better for focusing on key scenes, but I like some of the additional material they added to the anime as well.

It's true. Just checked it out and the first 24 chapters (up to the chase of Jeanne and Nicolas de la Motte) have been translated and posted.

This really does deserve its own post, since I know people have been waiting for RoV in English for a long, long time, all I managed to do was translate two scenes.

It does! I love reading manga online, but nothing is better than actually reading the book, Apparently I like holding stuff. I really wish RoV is translated in English as a book!!

I agree! Which is why I read it in French. I learned a lot doing it, but I'm not fluent.

I'll be taking a few years of French for college since I decided to go back to school (ughhh) and I think if I like it I'll stick with it. I'm going for English education but I'm still debating on the minor-- either History or French most likely, and if I looove French or am good at it (LOL!!) then I'll double-minor maybe.

Sadly that's 4-5 years before the French version could get translated, but I have a feeling it will never get an official release here.
