If u like shoujo-type anime, then this is the right choice for you. Be prepared to watch all the shining sparkles around the characters

Rose Of Versailles a trully beautiful anime

Well, as some users already know I have been advertising this anime for a short while. The truth is that I watched this anime when I was like 10 years old therefore I don't remember much is this series. I just remember that my friends my brother and I used to sit down to watch this series every afternoon at 4:00pm from Monday to Friday. This series was quite popular in South America.

Well, know that I have realized that this excellent web site has the series I didn't hesitate in downloading it, and all I can say is that I'm really surprised for how good this anime is (I just watched episode 13). This anime has very strong factors such as: A plot that embraces a lot of realism: There is no science fiction in this anime at all, it is all based on real French Revolution history. The music is excellent. The graphics are gorgeous (even though this anime is like 20 years old!!) It is a very emotional anime, it is full of envy, love, hatred, death, hope and everything else. The characters are very well developed, you really get to see how really human nature works in this anime. It is totally unpredictable; In one moment I'm like ok ok that right and then I'm like WTF! why did he do that?! and believe it or not this anime has made CRY! I haven't cry with anime in a long long time except when I watched Grave of Fireflies. Yeah it is that powerful... The best part is that I have cried of happiness. You become so involved in the story that you really get to worry about the characters fate. This anime is a classic.

I wonder if anybody else in this forum has seen this anime yet and what does he think about it?...

Here it is some info about the series (It is taken from another post of mine

Rose of Versalles (1979 EXCELLENT ANIME)

(Intro)
http://cartoons.metropoliglobal.com/videos/oscar_op.rm

http://www.animesuki.com/series.php/92.html
You should really consider watching this anime. This anime is based on the Frensh Revolution. The protagonist is Oscar, a woman who was raised as a man, due to the fact that her father always desired to had a man but never could. When she became 14 she joined the imperial guard that protected the king of france.



Then it only gets worse for her... Battles, love deceptions, romance and tragedy follow her path as she grows older... without mentioning the fact that she dies protecting the king and queen of France whom later were decapitated as it is known by Frensh history.



-----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------

Please excuse me if I'm being very repetitive at times, but all I'm doing is trying to show to many people how good these "hidden" animes are. They are so old that they have been sent to oblivion. But the truth is that animes like this one are really worth watching and I know that there are many people who agree with me.

Actually, I've never heard of the special being digisubbed, so I doubt you can download it. However, it is possible that it was subbed on VHS...

Excuse me for bumping an old thread, but I would just like to ask if anyone knows what the 1990 RoV movie is about?

I just had the chance of watching this recently and I am totally astounded by the story. I haven't cried so much since Hikaru no Go; the ending was so gut-wrenching painful to watch. Ah, thank you so much Live-Evil for subbing this masterpiece.

Great news, but I've also heard that it is delayed till 2008 or 2009. I hope that's not the case.

In any case, existence of such a project makes me happy

Having heard what a classic this series is meant to be, and having seen references/parodies in other series, I grabbed hold of Live-Evil's batch torrent and downloaded the lot.
So what can I say? Obviously, it's very much a thing of its time (1979-1980, I believe). Melodramatic, a bit campy, and OTT in parts. Not that there's anything wrong with that!
I did find myself thinking things like "Aha, that must be a bad guy. He has a villainous moustache!" and imagining the Animation Director standing over the animators saying things like "Sparkles! MORE Sparkles! GIVE ME MORE SPARKLES, DAMN YOUR EYES!!!"

But I did watch seven episodes yesterday, and I'm hooked.

Well worth a look, if you ask me.

After so much hype behind this classic, I decided to check it out and I was both disappointed and satisfied. Disappointed because it wasn't as nearly as good as I hoped it to be, but satisfied because it does pick up towards the end and has memorable characters and a strong story. But the most interesting thing for me was the setting. I mean, the time of French Revolution is still one of the most interesting thing you may find in history, and circumstances can bring out the worst in men and turn them into vultures. It also makes people's sacrifice and virtues shine. Light is only beautiful and bright under darkness after all. I think the show did well in capturing the state of that particular time period, although the validity behind the depiction of historical figures like queen antoinette is questionable. But I liked the show's fictional telling of the events.

I hope that re-make will proceed, since in my opinion, the show would benefit a lot from modern animation technique and more refined script. And this is just me, but I hated the shoujo element in the show. I hate those sparkling eyes and sparkling bubbles of light that shows how handsome and pretty characters are. I hate how the tears pool inside their eyes ridiculously everytime they are about to cry. And the melodrama especially at the beginning of the series, ugh. No wonder I hate shoujo.

Finished watching this great series, a little slow to begin with after the gloriously romatic first episode but really reaches full stride with style, around the episode 19 mark. I was watching it almost contiously by this point, desperate to find out what happens after each and every cliffhanger.

Now can someone please fansub the 1987 movie sequel 'I'll Love You As Long As I Live'.

Good timing. I just ordered some doujinshi anthologies for this series yesterday.

I'll post some images from it upon arrival.
