To those who don't yet know...

The Rose of Versailles anime is finally getting an R1 release!!

Nozomi/Right Stuf announced today that they will be releasing limited edition DVD sets in 2013 and will be conducting fan Q&A with Riyoko Ikeda.  It will also be streaming legally on Viki.

If you haven't gotten a Nozomi/RS limited edition release before, I can tell you right now that they're gorgeous.  One of the best R1 distribution companies.

To all my fellow Americans (and also Canadians), holy sweet Mary Joseph @#$%^^$#%^#$%@# WE'RE FINALLY GETTING IT!!!

OMFGOMFG, I'm so excited!

Will the release have a dub? Or just the sub?

I was wondering that too. My guess is that the streaming will be sub only. Hard to say for the DVD though - they haven't even announced a set date for the DVD release yet.

my guess as well - though I would be honestly curious to hear a dub!

They should use the French dub. Just saying. >.>

Is there something quirky about the French dub or just that it would be an unusual choice? As long as it is a more recent dub with good quality I'm guessing it should be fine. I have a hard time understanding old anime without subs - I think it's a peculiar cadence when they speak or maybe it just the recording quality.

And it can't be as weird as the Le Chevalier d'Eon sub - screen shows a book page with French text, character reading the page out loud in Japanese and the English translation at the bottom. I have a giggle fit every time.

well, it's more that English speakers tend to not know French... :)

it has been a while since I watched the French dub; I had a sort of hard time understanding it, not sure if it's because they were speaking in an older-sounding French or it was just too fast.

Oh, yeah we'd definitely still need English subs along with the French dub. I only know one person who could probably do without subs on a French version. But it would just be so cool if it was in French in the first place.

I strongly suspect that it will only be a sub. Nozomi stopped doing dubs years ago. Their most recent releases have dubs only because they are license rescues for series that already had dubs (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Martian Successor Nadesico). Some people are hoping that they might pick up the French dub, but I doubt that as well. That doesn't mean they couldn't surprise me, but I'm going to keep my expectations low.

Frankly, I'm just really happy to get the series legally. I thought it was too unfeasible to pick up nowadays considering it is an old shoujo series.

I don't care how much it costs, I'm buying it regardless. Day 1 purchase from me!

I was linked this a few hours ago and I immediately ran to my boyfriend's Facebook page to link him because he cried at the end of RoV and I knew he'd be excited, too! GAHHH!!! IT'S ABOUT TIME!! (After disappointing us all MASSIVELY with the movie that was cancelled and all, we deserve something!!)

I have the French DVD sets (both of them), and the fansubs but at this point I'll take an official sub or a dub. I wouldn't even care if the dub wasn't that great. I'd be too busy pissing myself with delight or something. Ahhhhhh!!!
