hmm... manga yang satu ini sukses membuat saya hafal habis-habisan sejarah perancis dan sejak itu juga saya suka sejarah, sampai kemudian berani menulis dengan latar belakang sejarah tertentu ^^

hebat bagaimana ikeda bisa menggabungkan fiksi dan sejarah dengan begitu baik sampai-sampai begitu banyak orang percaya akan kehadiran Oscar Francois, Andre dll

“No matter what, a knight should never act based on feeling…no matter what…But, I am only human.”
Brigadier General Oscar François de Jar Jayes

Rose of Versailles is definitely, by no argument at all, the most beautiful Shojo Manga I have ever read. I don’t mind a bit reading the excessive love story throughout all 10 volumes of this manga. This manga has powerful story and the characters are all well built, it was no surprise to know that a lot of Japanese Kids started asking their history teac

Très intéressant ce manga se déroulant en France, à l'aube de la révolution française, sous le règne de Louis XV. Les destins des personnages se croisent et se recroisent. On ne cesse de vouloir une fin heureuse, ou tout du moins un instant sans malheur, sans parvenir à oublier que 1789 se rapproche de plus en plus.
Quant à Oscar, on n'oublie facilement qu'elle est en réalité femme ; c'est certainement le personnage le plus intéressant !

pertama kenal manga ini dari kartunnya di tipi. tapi terus kartunnya ngilang baru deh berburu manganya. bagus banget cara penggabungan antara fiksi dengan sejarah perancis. pikiran SD-ku waktu itu mengatakan memang ada seseorang bernama oscar yang terlibat dalam pergolakan sejarah di prancis.

sayangnya, hikz...endinya tragis.

Ever watch Marie Antoinette movie by S Coppola?? Yes? No?
No problem! This manga richly detailed with France's royal gala clothings, tall-lanky-handsome and amazingly-pretty characters,
guns and fires, loyalty and betrayal, somepartofit, I think,
nicely brought to live into that live action movie.

Nice to know some part of the world history this way.

Very nice comics, with Historical background of France Revolution..
A woman that was forced to be a great man, but inside, she (Oscar) is always a real woman with her fragile heart, falling in love with a man but can't be together...

Un premier tome captivant, aux graphismes de qualités, où la fiction se mêle sans problème, aux événements historiques, Rioko Ikeda, sait nous entraîner dans son univers, nous permettant ainsi d'oublier, les quelques maladresses, et erreurs historiques.

L'anime se focalisait sur la relation André/Oscar, le manga en fait une tonne sur Marie Antoinette, personnage (à mon sens) insupportable, reste le couple star qui reste quand même au centre de l'intrigue.
Très bon manga quand même.

Intéressant mais ayant vu la série qui est globalement très fidèle, je n'ai pas eu beaucoup de surprises...

I loved this series as a child. Haven't read this in decades. Could be fun to get my hands on a copy of it today, if I can find it online somewhere...
