OMG! OMG! YES! YES! YES! :)

I just saw this as a stage production in May at the Takarazuka theater, and I've really wanted to see the show and manga that it was based on. I'm so glad you guys got this property!!! <3

Everyone should watch this show, in fact they must, or they cannot call themselves anime fans.

My worry is that people won't watch it "Because it looks old." In fact, if you are thinking of not watching it because you think it looks old, you are a horrible person.

Don't be a horrible person: watch Rose of Versailles. Hope that we get more classics. Any chance that you could pick up Aim for the Ace, Star of the Giants, Candy Candy, Brother Dear Brother, or Urusei Yatsura?


For those who are interested, legit++ community-subtitle site Viki has Dear Brother. I would be very pleased if AnimeSols, which just successfully crowdfunded its first release of Creamy Mami, could put together a deal to try to get Dear Brother made, including some kind of deal to stream it on Crunchyroll.

{++ I stress "legit" since some people get confused between Viki and unlicensed fansub sites ~ Viki has licenses for the anime that it streams.}

I've been loving this series and plan to recommend it to all of my Francophile friends.

If anime is a roadblock for them, it's their own loss! I've found the series, historically balanced, charming, exciting and a likely tear jerker ending. All I would expect from a Shojo Historical romance.

The percentages, of Elite versus commoner, they throw around is sounding sadly familiar and a better analogy of our current political situation, than the American Revolution is. I find it interesting to discover only a few characters are fully fiction.

That's what usually happens when it's a "Catalog title". A shame.

I will put it at my less priority watch list since it's classic of sorts, but 14 hours... But still because of summer lack of time i still haven't really started watching this season, not mentioning watching older shows. I really hope they will change day length to 36 hour soon. For some time i feel that today is too close to tommorow.

So far 4 eps in and I'm bored as hell. Perhaps it's not as genderbend/yuri-y as I wanted it to be. So far it's ridiculous petty politics and barely any character development. Can someone give me a reason to give it more of a shot?
